Wow. Very nice indeed and rare birds.
Great to see those two!

I have an appreciation for the Pre-Series II Kimbers as well. Don't know if these would qualify as being rare but they are the closest I've got. My others are more standard run guns.

This is a Kimber Heritage Edition Classic Custom. As I recall they made about 1012 of these. I have couple of them and they are great guns.

Growing up in Oregon I was always attracted to Kimber, Gerber Knives ans Danner Boots. I’ve owned the others but never a Kimber. Those are nice pistols.

I don't think there were a ton of these built, that is until they were added to the CDP product line. Originally labeled "Combat Carry".

Thanks AZ, would love to see some more of yours! Perhaps we should re-name this thread the "Pre-Series II Kimber Thread".

Cool Combat Carry Sooner! The predecessors to the CDP Line are great and as stated were not made in great numbers!

I know that it isn’t rare or even regarded as worth owning by many but my pre Series II Custom was my most accurate 1911 until I got my MC Operator.

Both are very good shooters.

My first 1911 was a Kimber. I had a few others that have no issues. I ended up selling them for other guns, but they were fine weapons. I just think they are overpriced now a days. I’m not gonna pay 1750 for a Kimber when I can buy a DW.

Probably not rare but I know they weren't made after 2010. (according to Kimber) I just got this one and it still has what appears to be the factory lube/goo inside. Even the plastic case doesn't have a scratch on it.
