Kimber Custom TLE II is a model of Kimber Custom (model 1911 semi-automatic pistol). It is designed, manufactured, and distributed by Kimber Manufacturing, Inc. in Yonkers, New York. The designation "TLE" stands for "Tactical Law Enforcement". The TLE is identical, except for the markings, to a special model that was designed for use by the LAPD SWAT team. Unlike the standard Custom, it comes with tritium bar-dot night sights and 30 lines per inch frontstrap checkering.

Kimber Custom TLE II .45 ACP is virtually identical to the pistol carried by LAPD SWAT since 2002. Important upgrades from the Kimber Custom Shop such as Meprolight night sights and 30 lines-per-inch checkering on the front strap are also included. Based on the Kimber Custom II model, it has standard features like match grade barrel, chamber, trigger and barrel bushing, along with a frame and slide carefully machined from solid steel. A 1911 fits almost any size hand and points naturally for faster and more accurate shooting, an advantage that is impossible to overstate. The single-stage trigger breaks at 4–5 pounds without the creep and overtravel common to other designs, and the 1911 safety system has never been equaled. Combined with the authority of the great .45 ACP cartridge, the Custom TLE II could well be the best choice for duty, concealed carry or personal defense.
