About Ultra Carry II Family:
A carry pistol that stays home because it is too big and heavy to actually carry is no good, and an underpowered pistol that does get carried is not much better. A Kimber Ultra Carry is the pistol you need if you are serious about concealed carry and self defense.
Kimber is the world leader in 1911 quality, and nowhere is this quality more evident or important than in a carry pistol. Kimber Ultra Carry pistols weigh just 25 ounces. Their short 3-inch barrels, compact grips and flat 1911 profiles make them easy to carry and conceal. At the same time, their 7-round magazines pack more power than just about any caliber of revolver.
Dependability is everything in a carry pistol. Each Kimber Ultra Carry has a lowered and flared ejection port with an extra bevel at the front to clear ejecting brass. The match grade bushingless bull barrel is fitted directly to the slide, and a double-wound recoil spring system makes proper operation possible even for a novice. With separate thumb and grip safeties the 1911 design is known for its integrity, and the Kimber Series II Firing Pin Safety makes the Ultra Carry even more secure without impeding performance or altering trigger pull. Additionally, the Loaded Chamber Indicator Port permits a quick visual check of the chamber.
All Ultra Carry pistols have a carefully machined 7075-T7 aluminum frame. Made on the same state-of-the-art machines and to the same tight tolerances as Kimber steel and stainless steel frames, they are incredibly strong. As proof, Kimber aluminum frames have been tested to over 20,000 rounds with no evidence of meaningful wear. Slides are either steel or stainless steel, depending on model.
The Ultra Carry II .45 ACP features a matte black finish and fixed low profile sights. Another version is available with fixed three dot (green) night sights. The Stainless Ultra Carry II features a satin-finished stainless steel slide and is available in either .45 ACP or .40. As with the Ultra Carry II, a model with night sights is also offered.
The Ultra Carry II / Night Sights .45 ACP is also available with a set of two-tone Crimson Trace, Lasergrips with the Kimber logo. Extremely effective for self defense, a red dot is projected by simply gripping the pistol.
Kimber Ultra Carry pistols all have standard Kimber features like match grade trigger, beveled magazine well, extended thumb safety, bumped beavertail grip safety, slightly extended slide release and checkered flat mainspring housing. For concealed carry, nothing beats a 1911, and the Kimber Ultra Carry is the finest concealed carry 1911 money can buy. If you carry, carry the best.
Kimber builds the finest 1911 pistols in the world. A bold statement, maybe, but backed by the actions of the best law enforcement units, military forces and competition shooters. Legendary LAPD SWAT tested five major 1911 brands and chose Kimber. United States Marines assigned to Special Operations Command carry Kimber. The U.S.A. Shooting Team trains for rapid fire Olympic competition with Kimber.
On the strength of unequaled quality, Kimber sells more pistols into the growing 1911 market than any other manufacturer. Predictably, every year another gun company that specializes in something else trots out a 1911 with hopes of grabbing market share. While none of these pistols matches Kimber in quality or features - and many cost more - they do a great job of confusing things. Follow the lead of the experts. Don´t settle for anything less than the best. Trust your next shot to Kimber.
Every Kimber 1911 pistol is made in a state-of-the-art American factory from the finest raw materials and with manufacturing tolerances up to three times as tight as the competition. Over 200 inspections are performed during the manufacturing process by both people and specialized machines. When completed, every pistol must pass a comprehensive safety inspection that includes test firing to ensure all quality standards have been met. Unlike other manufacturers, Kimber does not purchase from 1911 parts houses. After all, the only way to do things right is to do them yourself.
Over the years, the Kimber 1911 line has grown to include 70 models in a wide variety of sizes and calibers. Some are intended for specific uses like concealed carry or competition, while others do just about everything. Some are more traditional 1911s and many are loaded with special features and built by hand in the Custom Shop.
Kimber 1911 pistols are topped with premium fixed, adjustable or night sights securely mounted in machined dovetails. Unequaled quality and dependability made Kimber number one. Others make claims, copy and compare - even want you to believe they make pistols in America. Let them take their best shot at number one. Just make sure you take your best shot with a Kimber.
Custom features like high ride beavertail grip safety, extended thumb safety and Commander-style hammer are part of every Kimber. The Ultra CDP II .45 ACP is short, light and absolutely dependable. It is the finest full-power concealed carry pistol available today.
Kimber 1911 barrels are carefully machined with match grade dimensions to ensure accuracy, and they are also one piece for superior strength. Barrel bushings on centerfires are also match grade, and all are machined from stainless steel blanks.
Chambers are cut to exacting match grade dimensions and then carefully finished for flawless feeding and extraction. Ejection ports are lowered and flared so ejecting brass clears easily. Everything is done inside the Kimber factory.
Kimber pistols have factory tuned match grade trigger groups that break crisp and clean. Slide and magazine releases are slightly extended for quick location and easy operation. Frame has a high kidney cut for best grip position.
