Kimber builds the world's finest 1911 pistols right here in Americaâ€”something that makes sense, as few things are as American as a 1911 .45 ACP. Virtually every critical component of every pistol is manufactured inside the Kimber factory. The finest raw materials come through the front gate and Kimber does the rest, the only way to ensure that every part meets unequaled standards.
America's best shooters keep choosing Kimber. Legendary LAPDâ„˘ SWAT tested five major 1911 brands and chose Kimber. United States Marines assigned to Special Operations Command chose Kimber. The U.S.A. Shooting Rapid Fire Pistol Team trains for Olympic competition with a Kimber. Most recently, LAPDâ„˘ SIS transitioned to Kimber. They all chose Kimber for the same reason: quality, dependability and accuracy.
Gold Match and Team Match pistols take quality to the extreme. They are the choice of shooters who will not settle for anything less than the best.
