Ditchdoc, this is what I know. Not sure about value. Your pics are not the best. Judging from your pics the finish does not look to be in the best of shape. In 1995/96 these sold in the $550 dollar range brand new. ALL of those 1911's, yes even the ones roll marked Clackamas OR were ALL built in Yonkers, NY. I know they can be difficult to find one, seems people that own them, tend to like them and keep them. I'm not sure I agree that they are "collectable." Maybe if it was a like new in box with box, paperwork, original Chip McCormick magazine and a serial number under 7001 it could hit the $1,000 range. Serial range started at 1001 to around 7400 give or take a couple hundred. They had a CMC carbon trigger.
Over on 1911Forum forum they have a whole Topic dedicated to Kimber Clackamas. Member posting there with the name Kruzr (who is sadly now deceased) was the Kimber expert.
It is worth whatever your willing to pay/trade for it.
Trade/buy LOW.
Just my .02 good luck.

Mine Number 6331. It’s in a lot better shape than picture show.
Thanks for info. It’s worth more than the $400 I have in it.

1996 Clack, first year Kimber built 1911's. Excellent gun with original trigger and grips. Hard to tell the condition, but the last pristine one I saw sell went for $1100.

$400! Well then it's a mute point and don't make a dang bit of difference what we think the value is. You saying "thinking of trading for" is a big difference, you should have said "I bought or have 400 bucks trade value in this pistol what do you think?"

Thanks AZ, I wasn't sure about 95 or 96. I'll buy/trade for 400 dollar Clack's all day long. I've not seen one for sale in awhile.

In my safe is my first Kimber, a Clackamas Custom Classic .45 in mint/pristine condition (s/n 45XX). The pistol is one of few that I've never ever had a malfunction of any kind, it just runs as flawlessly as could be imagined with all manner of handloads and factory fodder.

This weapon came to me from a USMC friend who has since passed some years ago. Knowing the actual value, knowing it's basically a Chip McCormick pistol in disguise, and the fact it came to me from a dear friend, makes it a "forever" pistol to me.

Unless the OP just wants a change in shooters in his safe, or has his eye on a specific "want", this is one pistol that I'd never consider selling or trading away. Besides being a bit sentimental, this is just one of those guns once obtained, should be shot and/or tucked away. They will only gain in value, not to mention a significant point in Kimber history.

So to ditchdoc: What do you have your eyes upon for a replacement? I'm sure there's more than one here that would not mind a Clackamas Kimber in their safe......

It funny I am a trader and have always been. Every now and then I find a gun that makes in my safe and doesn’t leave. I hope this will be one.
The way gun prices are right now your never get what it worth.
I haven’t had a chance to shoot it yet.
