New 2014 Summer Special Editions

Kimber America | Summer Collection 2014

Hopefully the PVD finish sticks around and moves to other models.

Wink Oh Yeah!!

I like the Sapphire Pro II. I may have to break open my piggy bank!!!!

WOW, I just looked a bit closer. The Sapphire only comes in 9mm!!! I guess the piggy bank is safe after all. I'm just not a 9mm kind of guy!! I could even go for it if it was a .40S&W. Oh well!! DANG!!!

All Ultras should have a rounded heel like that, IMO.

WOW, that Gold Combat II is awesome but I think it's a little high at $2715.00.

They say it was made famous by a recent Hollywood motion picture franchise, anybody know what that's about?

Hmmm. That Gold Combat is bushingless. Interesting. What is a PVD finish?

The movie franchise is The Expedables and the Gold Combat toting star is none other than the world's biggest gun grabber hypocrite actor (which is saying a lot) Sly "confiscate all guns" Stallone. *barf* F#%K him!

Gold combats have been bushing less bull barrels for several years now.

200 or so of the price is the finish. Add the time for polishing the stainless and it's not far off from the standArd model msrp. If you like the bling look. If it was all pvd it would be better.

I didn't know there were 5-inch bushingless barrels. Learn something new every day. Forget something old every day too, unfortunately.

I love the rounded butt on the Ultra. But they can keep that silly little light and give me back my sights.
