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.
