If you could design a Kimber, what would you do?

My favorite size is the Pro Carry size. I like blingy guns, so if I had my choice, it would either be high polish blue or high polish hard chrome. I would really love an anodized gun in purple or red.

Ambidextrous, and especially, an ambidextrous mag release.

I love my Super Carry Pro, it's almost perfect, I've already installed a Wilson extended slide release and a flat wire spring kit. All it needs is a black chrome finish and a set of ivory grips.

I just got a set of ivory grips. I need a gun to put them on.

If you want something with Bling go look at a Sig P-238 Rainbow Titaniun, it will dazzle you! And yes is got Bling!

I've seen it. I am just not a Sig fan. I do like the Desert Eagle 50ae in gold tiger stripe.

A Warrior with stainless frame and slide under the KimPro black. In 9mm with 25 lpi checkered frontstrap, magwell and the ledge sights of the super carry pistols.

Kimber will make special production runs with a minimum order of 50 pistols last time I heard.

The very first thing I would do is make a shorter version of the 38 super in 3"
That is a good carry size and hot to trott!

Get rid of the plastic mainspring housing and replace all the MIM parts.

I have to admit that there are already several Kimber models that would be exactly what I would design.

Rounded grip butt. That's the only thing I miss on my Ultra Carry.
