I'm looking at the Kimber SIS for the sleek and thin profile, as well as being robust at the same time. I want to concealed carry it.
If anyone has a Kimber SIS or has an opinion about them, please chime in.

I want one of every model Kimber makes, but I'll start with the ones I want the most.

I think Guns & Ammo said it best in the last paragraph of their article:

Buyers of a Kimber SIS not only get a solid, reliable and accurate pistol, Kimber is sending $15 from the sale of each one to the Los Angeles Police Memorial Foundation, which supports the families of officers who gave their lives in the line of duty. If you need more of an endorsement, consider the officers of SIS: As an optional but not issued piece of gear, they have to personally purchase their Kimbers. The 21 officers in the SIS have dug down into their own pockets and purchased a total of 125 SIS-model Kimbers. When someone who depends on a particular piece of lifesaving gear buys it themselves, I notice. When a group of them buys almost six each, I want one.

I have heard a lot of good things about the SIS with one complaint- the SIS is harder to grip on the slide than standard serrations. Are you looking at the Pro (commander size) model?

The thing I like about this gun is that they went back to the way they used to make them with an internal extractor and no firing pin safety. More like a traditional 1911.

If they come in different frame sizes, I'd prefer the service size. I have very large hands, like XXL and need a frame large enough to grip. Do you know what sizes are available?

Thanks for the link mchlwise, I like those kind of articles and with pictures to.

Kimber has the Ultra, Pro, and Custom sizes which equate to what is traditionally known as the Officer, Commander, and Government models. The Custom is the full-size model, Pro has a shorter barrel but full size grip, and the Ultra is shorter in the grip and barrel length.

Here is a link to Kimber's website: http://www.kimberamerica.com/pistols/sis/

On the left hand side are links to the different size SIS models.

I have the Kimber CDP Pro II and the SIS Ultra. They are both great guns but I prefer to carry the Ultra because it is easier to conceal. Kimber makes a great weapon that is not only great looking but dependable and accurate.
But one or several...you won't be disappointed.
