Question year of mfg?

Is there any source for the year of manufacture of my UC based on Serial #? Their web site has no such info. They don't even have an email to contact?! I guess I could just call them.

Yep, you have to call them if you need that info.

I wish they had a CS website or Q&A option online.

year of mfg?

You can always try this. I do it. Sometimes it works, sometimes not. Send a generic email to [email protected] or [email protected] kimber.com without detailed info like, "Hi, If I give you a serial number, can you look up a manufacturing date? Best Regards, John Q..."
Every company has email in one form or another. It will either bounce back or they will answer you. If they do and are willing to help, you got your in.... You can try others too. Like [email protected], [email protected], etc., etc.., Just be professional...
Good luck...

Every brand of firearm that I have excluding Kimber has the serial numbers/ manufacture date easy to find online..
I guess Kimber has their reasons but they are easy to call and ask for it in a matter of minutes you will know..

Many of Kimbers records were lost when the company moved from Clackamas, Oregon to New York.

I'm sure the ATF really believed that but that was 25 years ago so why didn't they start fresh when they moved to Yonkers??
We won't know and I'm sure they have their reasons...
No big deal either way...Just curious..
