Kimber Sapphire Ultra II

Does anyone own one? What are your thoughts. What ammo does it function with best? I know Kimber has stopped making them. Have not seen much talk about the Sapphire on here. Maybe it has it's own forum. Thanks

They are kind of like Unicorns. Lots of people have heard of them, but not many have seen them.

Oh and, the ammo it functions best with would probably be 45 ACP!

The Sapphire Ultra II is still listed on Kimbers website but not in the 2014 Kimber catalog. It was a nice looking gun but there were problems with the finish, it wasn't very durable and easily scratched.

Good luck with loading those .45's in a gun that was only chambered in 9mm, LOL.

If you can't find a Sapphire and want some bling for a Midtown parade, try one of these.

Not seen that Sig in person. I do have a Kershaw knife with the Rainbow finish that is my "dress up Sunday knife". If you think about it the factory finish on a lot of guns does not "hold up", if it is used and carried. So can't dismiss it or any other on that fact. I was wondering how the Sapphire measured up did not expect them to be that rare. Hard to believe that at least one of you guys don't own a Sapphire. If you want to keep your Sapphire ownership on the down low just send me a PM. Mums the word. LOL

I guess some guns aren't kept in the safe, but in the closet.
