Classic Carry Elite

Yesterday I ran across a Classic Carry Elite in a gun store. I had never seen one before and it was kind of shoved to the back corner of the shelf, almost impossible to see. I thought it was a great looking weapon and it appeared to have been there for a while. After a little haggling I now own a new Kimber CCE. My question is what years was this model manufactured? I cant seem to find much information about this pistol. Any info would be appreciated.

Just got off the phone with Kimber, it was made in 2016 and they discontinued the model in 2017. Thanks for the help.

I hope you haggled a great deal. There are 7 Classic Carry Elite's listed for sale on GunBroker and they are all priced above $1,899.

Great find and way to be alert!

Oh, you can see your new to you Classic Carry Elite in the online Kimber Catalog.
Go to Kimber website:
Click heading "SUPPORT"
Drop Down Box "RESOURCES"
Scroll Down to view or Download
2016 and or 2017 Product Catalog.
Listed under "Custom Shop"

Your pistol is in both catalogs but the 2017 catalog has the best pictures and maybe a little more information.
