what say you, /k/?

it's gotta be something out of the ordinary or they wouldn't be secret about it

i'm thinking .45acp with moon clips or it fires from bottom cylinder like the chiappa
>>
>>28577844
Top break action .45 acp.
>>
>>28577849
that would be cool but it would still need a clip

one is 12yrs old and has 5000rds+ through it

>>28578410
Not that guy, but I bought a custom ii a couple years ago brand new. Wouldn't feed fmj reliably from the start.

Shot the recommended amount of "break in" rounds, then 200 more with no improvement.

Sent to kimber, returned with the claim that the only thing done was replace the recoil spring. Took it apart to find it had indeed been filed upon and refitted by shrek.

Sold it and don't even consider kimber now.
>>
>>28578410
My dad bought one about a year ago. It was a piece of shit so he asked me if I wanted it (thinking that I could fix it). Did some research, shitload of reviews, decided it wasn't worth the $100 he was going to give it to me for.

Is that real? I didn't have my hopes up, but I was somewhat thinking that maybe they could betray my non-expectations and actually put out something cool.

Thank God, with the Medusa rights up for sale I was horrified they may have bought it

>>28580790
I like that all the sharp edges are rounded, its not going to catch on clothing when drawn. Adjustable rear sight is nice, and not common for carry pocket revolvers.

They claim its the lightest pocket revolver, but next thing you know they'll put out a scandium frame one for $300 more and call it super awesome. People will hate it because of the recoil.

Its a "me too" kinda gun. S&W and a couple others make these ultra light pocket revolvers for CCW. They're not huge sellers. I see that type of gun for sale all the time on calguns. "200 rounds total, 5 years old". They're not fun to shoot and expensive for something nobody ever shoots.
>>
>>28581258
i want one of these guns for carry purposes

my xds in .45 is fun to shoot but really rather have a 5 shot .357 and a strip clip on my pocket

prices?
>>
>>28577854
Not true. You could make a cylinder that headspaces on the lip of the case instead of the clip. But moon clips are the more versatile solution because then you can build the gun to fire .45 Colt as well.

If you're going to make a revolver it should at least do something that an automatic can't.

I have an original Kimber Custom from the pre-yonkers days, it's one of the nicest guns I own. I also unfortunately own a Custom II that is a gigantic piece of shit. It will not lock back on any magazine I try (though the mags work fine in all my other guns), the slide stop broke within the first 500 rds, and there are massive fitting issues with the grip safety.

I will not be giving Kimber another dime.
>>
>>28578023
Nah it's a magazine fed revolvers that fires from the chamber into a rifled cylinder which rotates on each shot like a Gatling gun. Interchangeable cylinder lengths and twists rate for those fuckers that alternate loads in the same mag or something.

Built on a 1911 frame of course and $1800

Then get a fuckin' Ruger SP101.

1/3 the cost.

Sure, it's not a lightweight, pussy-footin', purse gun, but there's nothing else this Kimber will have that the Ruger isn't available with.
>>
>>28580790
Anyone have the specs for it? I'm trying to get to their website but it won't load.
>>
>>28581759

This. This all day.

I own 6 revolvers. My SP101 is my favorite.

Built like a brick shithouse, very manageable recoil, beautiful design

The WORST revolver I have ever fired was an airweight S&W. That fucker was horrible. I own some big-caliber firearms (44s, 50AE, 500S&W) and that damn little airweight 357 was so unbearably painful to fire...

It's not that the recoil was all that much, but the impulse rang through my hand and the trigger slapped my finger against the frame.

If Kimber is making something lighter than that? Why, God? Why?
>>
>>28581233
So what you're telling me is, someone might start making the medusa?
>>
It'll be a regular fucking revolver that just has kimber's name on it and will cost 3x more than what sane people will pay for.
That said, I am excited.
>>
>>28577849
We already have that with Schofield repros
>>
>>28582288
What the fuck is the medusa?
>>
>>28582816

I hope it is a 45 that does not need moon clips , like the korth 9mm

...what, you fucking retard?

If it headspaces on the casemouth, LIKE A 1911, then the cylinder if going to have to have nearly zero gap

>>28582068
I think they are capitalizing on the fact it is a 6 shot snubbie. One more round than any j frame or sp101. But that makes it gimmicky at best.

I bought my kimber Pro covert 1911 n '12 no issues ever. No finish issues, no parts breaking, no rust or the other meme things /k/ loves to spew about Kimber.

I've come to the realization people talk shit because someone had legitimate issues with their Kimber and they just jump on the bandwagon since they are poorfaggots who can't afford it or hate on it for no reason.

According to Gunbroker, the Ruger LCR is their top-selling revolver. Followed by the S&W 686, then Taurus Judge, then S&W 642. Apparently the 686's sales are falling, while the LCR's are picking up speed and the 642's are remaining static.

Kimber sells more 1911s per year than anyone else. This means it's just simple math that there will be more defective Kimbers than other brands unless they have ridiculous and expensive extra QC measures compared to their competitors.

The high number of anecdotes plus Kimber's high average selling price means that poorfags who know guns mostly through their collection of internet anecdotes have a bad impression of a Kimber's value.

They're generally fine, I've had several, I've liked then all, and they aren't actually uncompetitive for price, feature for feature, when compared to other American Made 1911s.

If they offered a Compact (4 inch barrel, Commander length grip) with a railed dust cover and a military guide rod, I'd buy another to help keep my Warrior happy.

>>28585362
The super light $900+ sub 13 oz .357 snubs aren't which is what this appears to be. These things kick so bad I've seen bullets jump crimps and jam the cylinder. The only one i would take a chance on is the Ruger LCR .357 since it handles recoil better but if you are going to go full .357 get a SP101 or maybe a S&W 60
