KIMBER 10MM FIREARMS
Model Description Status Rating
Stainless Target II 5" barrel with adjustable rear sight. Very rare. In Production
Eclipse Custom II 5" barrel with fixed rear sight. In Production
Additional Notes: Equipped with many "custom" features yet reasonably priced, Kimber 1911s have become quite popular over the past few years. There have been some reports of "teething problems" with the 10mm versions, but this seems to be a relatively common problem with new 10mm pistols.

OVERVIEW

Undoubtedly spurred into action by the success of the Dan Wesson Razorback, Kimber quickly decided to offer its own 10mm 1911. The first offering was the Stainless Target II, equipped with an adjustable rear sight. The second 10mm released by Kimber was the Eclipse Custom II which was fitted with fixed sights.

There has been a lot of interest in the Kimber 10mms, and many shooters have expressed desires for an all-steel compact, but so far the Stainless Target II and Eclipse Custom II are the only two 10mms in the Kimber line-up.
