Kimber’s Peach Of A Pair Inside GUNS November 2016 Issue

( – Kimber’s Amethyst Ultra II .45 ACP and .380 Micro Carry dazzle on the cover of GUNS Magazine’s November 2016 issue. Mike Cumpston and Deborah Davison review the two Kimbers in “Momma And The Popper.”

The “momma” in the cover story is the Amethyst Ultra II .45 ACP with its pronounced purple finish and border engraving. According to Davison, a firearm instructor and former L.E.P., the Amethyst is designed to appeal to women. However, she thinks the “popper,” the smaller, more easily concealed .380 Micro Carry in Stainless Rosewood, is near ideal for many of her female students. Cumpston and Davison describe both Kimbers as showing “outstanding overall fit and metalwork” and cycling smoothly without the need for a break-in — a quality of hand-fitted custom pistols.
