Custom Compact

I never see a custom compact listed anywhere.

My wife has an early Custom Compact that doesn't have the "added later" safety pin.

So i guess it was made from 97-2000?

Is there any place where serial numbers are listed so I can see what year it was made?

Thanks

Try writing Kimber. It is very likely that kind of information is readily and publicly available.

Why wouldn't they have records??
I emailed Hi Standard to see when my 9 shot revolver was made and they not only told me 6/1959, but that it was sold at a Western Auto store in StLou on Cherokee Street..
That's just messed up.

Don't forget Kimber started out as a rifle maker in Oregon back in 79 and has had a couple of owners. They eventually moved to New York so it's possible records were lost or thrown out at some point in time.

You would think the Feds would want records kept on all firearms made...
