Intended Use
Will you be using the weapon primarily for target shooting or self-defense? With well over 100 different versions of their popular 1911 models alone, plus the other pistols available from Kimber, consumers have a lot of options.

If the objective is to have a weapon for self-defense, especially with the intention to carry, then a smaller style would be appropriate. Kimber’s Solo 9MM line features a 2.7 inch barrel, a size that makes for easier concealment. The Micro .380ACP line is almost as small; only a 2.75 inch barrel.

Shooter's Physical Size
The shooter’s physical size should also be considered when making a purchase. This includes everything from hand size to overall body size and the ability to handle the kick back when the weapon is fired.

Ergonomics
Never purchase any firearm without first holding in your hands and after you are comfortable with the feel, preferably after firing off a few rounds. If you like the weapon, see about replacing the grips for a better handle on the weapon if that is an issue. That is especially true for left-handed shooters.

One feature that may go overlooked is having a universal safety; one that can be used by left-handers as well as right-handers equally. The Kimber Solo line has such a safety.

Aesthetics
Face it, appearances count. Kimber pays attention to guncraft with stylish grips and woodgrain design in the rifle line make handsome firearms.

Price
Prices for a new 1911 will start at approximately $900, according to leading sporting goods retailers Cabela’s and Bass Pro Shops. If accessories are purchased, that can add a significant amount to the total. Each pistol comes with a single magazine. Additional magazines are available, of course, for an additional fee. One way to help reduce the price is too look at the secondhand market.

Anyone interested in a Kimber should do some research before making a decision. The quality of the line means that there could be the perfect choice for you in the secondhand market. However, to see which models are right for you, look into all of the models available by reviewing the company’s catalog or website first. Better yet, find an authorized Kimber dealer or attend a show where Kimber will be presenting. Then, be sure to make your purchase from a reputable seller and then enjoy your new Kimber.
