It wasn't long ago that the Kimber would be considered a custom pistol, with features like a beveled mag well (shown) dovetailed front sight, slide serrations forward and aft, lowered and flared ejection port, non-snag rear sight, skeletonized hammer, ventilated adjustable aluminum trigger, full-length guide rod. and checkering on the backstrap, mag release, and slide release. Grip screws on the cherrywood grip are allen heads.
For reliable functioning, each Kimber has a polished breech face, hardened extractors, and extended tactical ejectors.
All of the guns came with cable locks.
Black Hills' 230-grain full metal-jacketed (FMJ) rounds shot 2.1-inch groups in the Kimber.
