Spent a couple of hours at my favorite gun shop today. He is not only a Kimber Master dealer, he has become a Kimber distributer. Dan the owner told me that to become a Kimber dealer requires an up front purchase of $22,000. A lot of small shops can't afford to do that. Now that he's a distributer, they can buy what they want from him without the large investment. Sounds like a winner for smaller gun shops to me.

Being a master dealer/ distributer, the shop has a huge inventory of Kimbers. I fondled pretty much every model. He had six stainless Solo's and 10 Micro's and sold them all within a matter of days. He's got more coming along with six Saphires.

Sportsmans Stop is the name of the place. He doesn't have a web sight but sells a lot on Gunbroker. Here's a link to one of his adds. Click on view sellers other auctions to see some of his inventory.

I can only dream of having a dealer like that around me. Kimber used to list their master dealers on their website but they no longer do that, they just list dealers. Does anyone know where you can go to find out who their master dealers are?

Their price on the SCUHD is not that great, @ $1,470.

Maybe not Heaven but at least "Kimber Glory Hole."
If he gets six Sapphires, he is indeed the "King." Most dealers I have talked to have ever only had one or maybe two Sapphires ever.

Guarantee it's not "if" but when. He said two are already sold.

My LGS ordered one for me with a committed sale price of $1,450. But if we can get the med bills out of the way and the order doesn't show up soon, I may have to make nice with gunbroker.com and order one from them.

Master Dealers?

I'm not sure if they are master dealers, but I have two shops close by me that stock a bunch of KImbers. Deaton's in Loganville, Georgia (where I got my Pro Carry II)

and Clyde Armory in Bogart, Georgia (where I have bought a bunch of guns).

For folks ion the east side of Atlanta, John Deaton and Andrew Clyde are good folks to deal with. Both run nice, clean, friendly and professional shops. ;););)

Wish they listed inventory.

Edit: I see Clyde's Armory does. They have a Super Carry Ultra HD ............ for $1,699. It will probably remain there for a while.

I see you have to add it to your cart to get the actual sales price. $1,499.00 is still a bit too high.

Kimber heaven is a gun store with a large 1911 case dedicated only to Kimber. This is the Kimber case at Lotus Gunworks near me.

How come I can't have a stocking dealer like that in my area? The best we have is Cabela's, they may have 5 or 6 Kimbers at the most.

I'll be happy if kimber doesn't allow their current 1911s to fall off the Ca approved list. Anything new they come out with in the future will be SOL.

I've been in there. They are stupid high on prices and treat Kimber like it's something special. They don't realize that it's just an overhyped production gun that looks pretty on the outside but is not worth the money on the inside. But lots of stupid people think they are upper tier due to the over hyped advertising.
