About Gold Match II Family:
The Gold Match II and Stainless Gold Match II are the finest production pistols offered by Kimber. Sharing many features with the Custom family, they also have a stainless steel match grade barrel that is machined oversized and fitted by hand in the Custom Shop for accuracy. Grip panels are shaped from fine rosewood, and then checkered by hand in the classic double diamond pattern. Kimber’s adjustable sight with positive and responsive steel-on-steel click adjustment dials is dovetail-mounted into the slide. With a low profile, beveled corners and edges, and serrated blade, it works just as well for concealed carry as it does at the range. The level of finish is outstanding, with all flat surfaces carefully polished to a high shine in contrast to the satin finish on the curves. Both versions are available in .45 ACP, and the Stainless Gold Match II is also available in .40. Additional features include ambidextrous thumb safety and Premium Aluminum Trigger tuned to 3.5 - 4 pounds without creep or overtravel.
The Team Match II .45 ACP is identical to the pistol used by the U.S.A. Shooting Rapid Fire Pistol Team. While they shoot Olympic competition with rimfire pistols, they hone their edge by shooting the action circuit with America’s fastest guns. They play to win, and came to Kimber when they needed pistols. To support the Team, Kimber agreed to donate $100 from the sale of each Team Match II pistol. To date, Kimber has contributed $400,000 and is now the largest donor of any firearm company in Team history. Unique features of this pistol include red, white and blue U.S.A. Shooting Team logo grips.
The Target Match .45 ACP is a limited edition of 1,000 pistols. The slide is scalloped, and both frame and slide are finished in matte black with brush-polished flats for a dynamic appearance. The frontstrap even has a high relief cut under the trigger guard that enhances control. Special serial number, engraved bullseye, inlaid burl walnut logo grips and wide slide serrations make this one of the most elegant Kimber pistols ever offered.
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.
