Kimber Centennial Edition 1911

Kimber Centennial Edition 1911We recently announced some exciting news about the Kimber 2010 models. Among the many new models being released next year, one will stand out above the others - the Centennial Edition. Kimber's Centennial Edition 1911 is a very limited edition model that will have custom bluing, engraving, and other detail that will really make this a desirable model. We don't have photos or detailed specs yet but we're trying hard to get our hands on them. We did find out today that Kimber is only going to produce a total of 250 of the Centennial Edition 1911's. We'll post another update as soon as we hear anything!
