Hello from Ohio

Greetings, been shooting 1911s for 25 years. Springfields mostly, but have a couple colts & a Dan Wesson too. Not just stuck on 45s either, but have 1911’s in 9, 38, 40, 45 & now a Custom II in 10mm. I have 2 other kimbers; an Ultra and one of the J.P. Mfg guns (pre-Kimber Yonkers “Ithaca Anniversary” gun). Look to poke around & find out what I can about all the other various models of Kimber. Hope to pick up one of those elusive Clackamas guns eventually. I have a tendency to gravitate towards the different or unusual guns. Kimber make a 9 x23?

Cheers, Mark

Howdy from about 30-35 miles SW of Houston. Spent 9 1/2 years in Willoughby, Ohio in the 2000s before getting homesick and going back home to Texas.
9 mm may expand, but .45 ACP doesn't shrink!

Welcome! I like the idea of pictures in this case, if we're voting.

Welcome! 1911 good!

Kimber has never made a 9x23 that I know of. I sure wish they would make something along the lines of a Pro Carry in 38 Super. All they offer in Super right now is the Eclipse target, but they used to offer others. They are out there, but not common.

If you can find a Super all you'd need is a barrel for 9x23.
Pro Carry II .45 ACP
EVO TLE 9mm...and a bunch of other stuff.
