We had the opportunity to see and handle Kimber's newest 2011 additions including the new Super Carry HD family.
These new pistols are all black and have a steel frame where the standard Super Carry models have an aluminum alloy frame.
We have found that the Super Carry Pro is the most popular model in the family and after handling the new HD models, we're sure the Super Carry Pro HD will be the most popular in the group.
We also hope that with the expansion of the line, it will lead to new accessories like grips. We'll keep our eyes open for any new grips from Kimber or third party makers and share news when we can. In the mean time, check out the photos from SHOT.
We just received word that the Super Carry Custom and Super Carry Pro models have started to ship. We may see them in as little as two days. If you have pre-ordered either of these models, we will be contacting you as soon as they arrive and turn them around to your dealer as quickly as possible.
It is our understanding that these will be in very short supply - the demand for the Super Carry models is quite high and they are being allocated to each dealer despite how many or when they were ordered.
If you're interested in purchasing a Super Carry model, free free to contact us at 573-859-6044.
See more information about the Super Carry models.
We have started our pre-order on the Super Carry family - including the Custom, Pro, and Ultra. With the pre-order, we are allocating a total of 7 of each of the three models. The first to place an order will be the first to receive that Super Carry model when it ships.
We are offering free shipping on all Super Carry models that are pre-ordered.
Kimber is expecting to start shipping the Super Carry models between March and April of this year. We have a large order for these models and expect to be one of the first dealers to receive them. The required down payment to secure a model through the pre-order is $500 and when the guns arrive from Kimber we will contact you to make arrangements for the remaining $1,030.

We just got our hands on a copy of the new 2010 Kimber catalog and have some great details to share...
Below is an excerpt from P4:
Super Carry .45 ACP pistols from the Kimber Custom Shop take performance to an extreme. A light weight aluminum frame makes them easy to carry, and custom features like round heel and Carry Melt for smooth edges, night sights with cocking shoulder and KimPro II self-lubricating finish are standard.
Below is more info from P34 & 35:
The new standard of personal defense. Super Carry .45 pistols are made in the Kimber Custom Shop to unequaled requirements of usability, dependability and performance. Light, powerful and loaded with the very best features for concealed carry, this is the pistol to have on your side...
The Super Carry family was designed with a single purpose, to be the finest concealed carry pistols available today. Night sights, ambidextrous thumb safety and match grade trigger group are standard. Stainless steel slides and light weight aluminum frames wear KimPro II, a proprietary high-tech finish that is self-lubricating and extremely durable. The Super Carry Custom has a 5-inch stainless steel match grade barrel, the Super Carry Pro has a 4-inch bull barrel and the Super Carry Ultra has a 3-inch bull barrel plus a frame with shorter grip. Super Carry pistols combine dynamic style with outstanding quality and performance - just what you expect from Kimber.
