Custom Target - Standard features of the Custom plus the Kimber adjustable sight. Ideal for shooters who use a pistol for both carry/defense and competition.

Number one with a big bullet.
Until Kimber came along, production 1911 pistols meant job security for gunsmiths. Competition shooters needed their pistols tuned and tightened for accuracy. People who carried for defense wanted better parts and a host of modifications for dependability.
The Kimber Custom changed all that. Loaded with custom features, machined from the best materials and delivering the highest performance standard ever seen in a production 1911, Kimber shook up the market and restored the popularity of this classic American pistol.
Manufacturing innovation played a huge part in Kimber’s success. Metal Injection Molding (MIM) is a process Kimber pioneered in the gunmaking world. Small parts like the slide release, thumb safety and sights are made by this method. MIM parts are far superior to castings used by other manufacturers, and essentially have the strength of those machined from steel.
Today, law enforcement officers around the country, including such elite units as LAPD™ SWAT, carry Kimber Customs. Military units with the option to chose pistols that can actually do the job trust Kimber with their lives. American shooters have made Kimber the best selling brand of 1911 by a huge margin.
The Custom II is available in eleven different versions. Each is a full-size pistol with a 5-inch barrel, beveled front and rear slide serrations, and lowered and flared ejection port. Options include fixed, adjustable or night sights, caliber, grips, finish and materials.
