Its new yet and chances are you might be the first to own it. But I wouldn't worry. If you are worried, then ya should wait to see how it flies when people start buying them.

Welcome to KT and that's a sharp looking shooter.

Being that it's a 2017 model and just introduced at the Shot Show you probably won't find much on it on the www about it.

Just be happy that it's a Kimber who makes a fine 1911 and it will be a great start to your Kimber collection...

Did they give you a time frame of when you may get it ?

Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois pain88 and congratulations on the new Kimber.

The Stainless II has the same proven internals of all Kimber 1911's not a new gun but a new model that Kimber has brought out for 2017. Change the front sight, use a different color grip put some additional serrations on it and call it a new gun.

Pain88, welcome to the site from Tennessee! If announced at Shot Show it may be awhile before you get it.

I would be totally surprised if you had it in a few months much less a week, but good luck, stranger things have happened.

There are probably 2016 Stainless models still on GunBroker.
