Kimber Super Carry

looks like Kimber is joining the bobtail action now. think MSRP is ~$1500

they should've left out the FCS on this one.

Bout time. From their quality (as far as I've seen) I hope to see dealer prices much lower than that.

Looks like this is not a series "II" either. Pretty interesting depending on how price shakes out

Looks interesting. I like the solid trigger but the grip safety looks weird to me.

unless Kimber is buying smooth bobtail MSH from EB, then machining the scales on it.

How could EB file a suit? He simply has a trademark on the name Bobtail, much different that a patent on the process.

Pretty sure it's aluminum my friend.



ETA;


The Super Carry family – the three models in this line will all have alloy frames, a recessed slide stop hole like on the Crimson Carry II family, a high cut lower trigger guard like on the newest Gold Combat II models, a melt finish & silver KimPro on the frame with black KimPro on the slide making this a two tone gun, Wood Micarta Grips – Linville color (new color for Kimbers), and a bobbed mainspring housing. The sights will have a cocking shoulder like the SIS line, ambidextrous safety, and new cocking serrations called Super Carry Serrations. These serrations will look similar to those on the Raptor slide but sharper and reversed in direction.

Bummer

I carry a Pro CDP, but I'm just not into alloy framed 1911s. Who knows, if it really looks good, I may make an exception and get another light weight.

Thanks for the info.
