Kimber continues to roll out new products as the year winds to a close, with the latest offering being the Kimber Stainless 1911 Long Slide.

Chambered in both .45 ACP and 10mm, the Kimber Stainless 1911 Long Slide sports what the presser calls “Kimber’s signature modern-classic style,” and it’s built from quality raw materials that are machined and hand-crafted into the 1911.

The Stainless Long Slide features a six-inch barrel and slide hand-fitted to the stainless steel, 1.28-inch wide frame with a Satin silver finish; dovetail mounted rear adjustable target sight and front red fiber optic sight for fast sight picture acquisition; beveled magazine well; match-grade trigger; and scallop/checkered rosewood grips with the Kimber logo. The gun also has an overall weight of 42 ounces with an empty magazine; height of 5.25 inches; length of 9.7 inches; and an aluminum trigger with a factory setting of four to five pounds.

If you want to go the .45 ACP route—which features a 7-round magazine capacity—you’ll have to shell out $1,055, while the 10mm model of the Kimber Stainless 1911 Long Slide with an 8-round capacity has a suggested retail price of $1,075.
