The Custom II is Kimber's flagship model and the company's basic 1911. The Two-Tone variant is considered new for 2016. It is called the Custom II because The polished stainless frame adds quite a bit of heft to the Custom II. (Photo: Francis Borek). Front and rear sights are fixed and low profile.
The Kimber Stainless II is based on the classic 1911 or "Colt .45" design and is part of Kimber's Custom line. It is all-stainless with a 5-inch barrel, 8-round magazine and nicely textured rubber grip panels. The controls are in the usual locations for a 1911, but Kimber adds a beavertail grip safety.
