For some reason this just popped into my head. What ever became of this much advertised, yet obscure pistol?

I remember ads in the gun magazines but don't think it ever made it to store shelves.

I was thinking the same thing last year when I found an old gun rag that it was advertised in. I am not a Kimber fan by any means, but I thought it would be interesting to see how it faired in the real world.

It was officially discontinued quite some time ago

Did it ever even go into full production? Kimber had full inside front/back cover ads in all the gun mags for more than a year and I've never seen an article in a mag or anyone talking about it on the internet.

To my knowledge, and that of my dealer friend, it never hit the shelves... it was coming coming coming---------------discontinued... it never even got to the wholesalers that he uses...

Kimber must have lost their ass on that one. All that money spent on tooling and advertising just to make a few pre-production models to take pictures of. Did Kimber really manufacture it, or was it some obscure foreign pistol they imported with their roll marks?
