Kimber has been shipping the Super Carry HD models for a number of weeks now but for some reason, we're just starting to see the first shipments.
We just received and photographed the Super Carry Custom HD 1911. The Super Carry Custom HD is pretty well known. The stainless steel all black KimPro coated frame is main difference between the standard Super Carry Custom and HD model. The HD model does weight in at 38 ounces versus 31 ounces on the standard model.
See pricing, availability, specs, and ordering information for the Super Carry Custom HD in our store.
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.
