Not trying to start any arguments, but IMO the SS Raptor is the most distinctive model Kimber makes.


I know there's some beautiful models in the Custom Shop, but everyone has their own opinion.

Saw a stainless Raptor on gunborker yesterday for less than $1,000. IJS

Makes me suspicious.

I have a dealer who happily takes his 10% profit and keeps me as a valued (and broke) customer. Not all dealers charge msrp and a little polite haggling can go a long way. You always take your chances with a used gun unless you know who the original owner is. Just my opinion but the Raptor is a beautiful gun. I haven't met an owner of one who has regretted the purchase, most of them sell because of financial problems.

All 3 dealers in my town charge msrp unfortunately, and none of them have one in stock :(
Are they owner operated gun shops? Would a little polite haggling be inappropriate? Because Kimbers are high end guns, a 10% markup is usually north of 100. and a satisfied customer is a loyal customer and that means ammo, holsters, magazines, etc ...

I don't get rude or argumentative but I do ask them what's the best price they can give me. Sometimes I will even take my cash out so they know I'm ready to buy if they're ready to deal.

gunbroker.com can fix that. Lots of dealers selling factory new in box guns at well less than MSRP. Generally no sales tax assuming you live in a different state than the dealer. Many times no shipping. Usually the FFL transfer fee your LGS will charge is less than the sales tax you would pay.

Bought all my Kimbers from Fin Feather Fur (userid honker 204 on gunbroker) out of Ohio. All shipped the same day I bought them. No tax and free shipping.

That's the road trip for when you come to Ohio!

Our LGS sells Kimbers at MSRP - $200. I consider that a pretty good deal. Better than 10% off most of the time.

That's damn good our LGS sell everything at MSRP or if it's a really popular gun sometimes even more.
