Kimber was founded with the singular purpose of building fine sporting firearms, better even than classics from the golden age of American gunmaking. Modern manufacturing techniques would be embraced and used to advantage, but assembly, fit and finish could only depend on practiced hands. There would be no compromise in features, materials or performance.
Rimfire rifles led the way, followed by centerfire rifles, then pistols and finally revolvers. Shooters and hunters were attracted by classic lines, dependability and accuracy. In turn, demand fueled growth and encouraged continual product improvement. Today more than ever, the reputation of the Kimber brand reflects the original purpose—and Kimber is known as America’s leading manufacturer of premium production firearms.
Kimber measures success by product quality and customer satisfaction—not sales volume or market share. After all, if you trust a Kimber for protection, carry one hunting or shoot one in competition, quality is everything. That mind-set comes naturally. From the top down, Kimber is made up of dedicated shooters and hunters who insist that their guns be the best.
