Back around 2005 - 07 Kimber was going to come out with a black plastic DAO pistol and they were calling it the Kimber Pro Defense or KPD. They announced it and it was in gun magazines but it as far as I know it never made it into production.

Never seen one. I remember hearing years ago that SLED, South Carolina Law Enforcement Department tested KPD's and H&K's before settling on Sig Sauer.
We all know what you hear or what you read on web forums is often rubbish.

Looks like a over-grown Solo with a polymer frame. I'll pass.
