Wonder if Kimber would truley customise...

As many know just recently bought a 2015 CDP Pro in 9mm.

Just love the undercut that Kimber added to the slide.

To me what is a visual knockout is the serrated top of slide such as the Kimber Classic Carry Pro features......

I know Wilson Combat offers the service for $125.

Any feature that Kimber offers on any model, they will do to a Kimber sent to them. You have to call for the price. Years ago I sent a warrior to them for 24lpi front strap checkering.

Darrell, why not just call Kimber and ask them directly? They can tell you exactly what they can and can't do and how much it will cost.

Your little do nothing to enlighten the forum. Stop taking my posts as attacks, I'm trying to direct you to a positive source for answers so we can all benefit from your questions. I don't believe anyone has posted anything about the custom work (if any) that Kimber does in ages. Mike240's post mentioned "years ago". Call Kimber, ask your questions, takes notes and do a report on the forum that we can all benefit from. Let me add a question for you to ask, is there a way other then calling and asking like a list we can access that shows the custom work that they do?

You know Chuck.

I realize you don't mean it a wrong way.

On they other hand; many of your responses are cataloged and a little hard to digest.

Many topics I post are simply of to engage in dialog.
Share experiences........
And share from all members.

If that is wrong I'll just leave the forum...........

Darrell, you say you know Chuck does not mean answers the wrong way yet you take it the wrong way calling his answers cataloged.
I would think you would be happy to get correct, to the point information.
Mike240 does not want to tell you LPI costs X amount of dollars because the price may be a lot more in 2017.
Any bells and whistles you want added sounds simple enough and you may be able to get them done at a local shop.

Your going to leave KT because you don't like the way members answer your posts...

Awaiting more sharing, be nice to hear the current "Custom Shop" rate...if they will even do that.

Chuck is one of the most personable moderators I've ever encountered on any forum.

His comment was a very obvious statement to what was being posted IMO!

Best answer I have found on an Internet search.

Kimber America | FAQ

Can I order a firearm built to my specifications?

We are unable to accommodate requests to build individual firearms to customer specifications. You are welcome to send back any Kimber pistol for upgrades to Custom Shop features.
