About Eclipse II Family:
Eclipse pistols have such a striking appearance that it is easy for features and performance to take a back seat. All business right down to the core, Eclipse frames and slides are machined from solid stainless steel. Frontstraps have 30 lines-per-inch checkering for a positive grip. A match grade Premium Aluminum Trigger from the Custom Shop is tuned to release at 4-5 pounds. Breech faces are polished to ensure flawless feeding. Barrels and chambers are carefully machined to match grade dimensions.
The Eclipse finish brings out the classic lines of a 1911 better than any other process. The slide and frame are finished in a tough matte black oxide then all flat surfaces are brush polished, leaving recessed and curved surfaces dark and contrasting. Laminated gray/black wood grips checkered in the traditional double diamond pattern and matte black small parts round out the package.
The Eclipse Target II? and the Eclipse Custom II? are traditional full-size pistols with front and rear slide serrations. The Custom is available in both .45 ACP and 10mm, one of the most powerful cartridges ever chambered in a semi-automatic pistol.
The Eclipse Pro II? and Eclipse Pro Target II? have 4-inch match grade bushingless bull barrels fitted directly to the slide. The Eclipse Pro Target II is the only 4-inch Kimber 1911 with adjustable night sights. Even more specialized is the Eclipse Ultra II?, the only 3-inch, short-grip Kimber that does not have an aluminum frame. Like other Eclipse pistols, this little .45 ACP has a stainless steel frame, and its added weight reduces muzzle lift and makes it easier to recover a sight picture during rapid fire.
The Eclipse has become one of the most copied pistol series Kimber has ever offered. Well and good, but a copy is not an equal. No other 1911 brand matches Kimber in American-made quality, dependability or performance. Anything else is just something less.
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.
