If price were no object, which Kimber

If price were no object, which Kimber would you buy and why?

There are so many attractive qualities on each model I suppose you can't get all in one.

Personally, I'm leaning toward a Pro model for my next Kimber. I'd like to make it my EDC.

So, what's your favorite, and why?

That's easy I'd love to have the Kimber Classic Pro Carry, it's the sexy version of my Super Carry Pro. It's not the money so much as it is the availability.

Has a solid, aggressive look. I'm not sure about the strap checkering. But it is nice.

I've never seen a SC HD in person but if it's like the SC the checkering is kind of a semi fish scale design, it has no bite what so ever. The two advantages of the SC line in my opinion are a metal main spring housings and no Swartz firing pin safety.

Roger that! LGS has one in SS and one in blue. Sweet in the hand. Your choice $2,049.


BTW, the Super Carry Pro HD is MSRP $1,699.

You should get one and tell us what you think.

Kimber Master Carry Pro 45ACP Free S/H : Semi Auto Pistols at GunBroker.com

This is my local shop. He's a master dealer and has a lot of Kimbers. He has a lot more in store inventory then what he lists on GB.

Wouldn't surprise me if it sells above MSRP to someone who wants it bad enough.
