The Custom is now the Custom II, because like most Kimber 1911s it incorporates the Kimber Firing Pin Safety that makes each pistol more secure without impeding performance or altering trigger pull. It has also become a family, with twenty one models in five calibers. LAPD, SWAT Team carries them. So do United States Marines, thousands of law enforcement officers and hundreds of thousands of American shooters who refuse to compromise with either a lesser pistol design or another brand.
Kimber Customs are made the right way and from start to finish in the Kimber factory here in America. There is no other way to ensure such a high level of quality.
