I just bought a Kimber Polymer Gold Match .45 Cal.



I didn't even know that Kimber made a "Plastic" gun.

Any one own one of these or can anyone give me any information on it?

I'm off to shoot it this afternoon.

:cool:

My first kimber was polymer. Hard to find mags. I don't remember the capacity. 10 or 12? Shot pretty well. Got offered $1400 for a gun I bought for $600 and sold it.

Thanks for your information -

I've gotten very good input from different gun forums.

I think I've found out that BUL made the frames and Kimber (McCormick) supplied the tops.

I just got back from the range.

It shot like a Kimber - in other words - like a dream.

Absolutely not a failure of any kind in my 1st 100 shots.

I usually do not take pictures of my targets - but here are my 1st ten shots



that's from 21' and is probably as good as I can do.


The reason I do not usually take pictures is that I get worse the longer I shoot.


Looks like I've found a "keeper"

I like it.

The recoil is about like my all metal Kimber - pretty soft.

The magazine hold 14 .45 cal bullets .

Empty it weights 32 oz.

The trigger guard looks a bit thick to me, but otherwise that's a nice looker.
Just a few ounces heavier than my Kimber Pro Carry II.

Nice shooting pardner....
