    Kimber Sales on the Rise?

    123
    I've been noticing for the past six months or so how difficult it is to find Kimber handguns anywhere. I have three shops near me that are Kimber dealers and they all sell out nearly as fast as they get them in. I did a random search on the internet and Bud's Guns, for instance, offers 88 different choices of Kimber handguns yet they are out of stock on all but six of them. I wonder if sales are really this good or their production just isn't up to speed.

    Cabelas and Sortsman's Warehouse here have ton's of them. The empty spots after Christmas were the XD, XDm 5.25, Glock 17/19 and Springfield 1911's and the 1911 R1.

    If you think Kimbers are hard to find, try to find a Ruger SR1911 at even MSRP much less a decent lower price....JJ

    Yeah, I've only seen two in my area and one was purchased by an employee at the gun shop that got it in. The other was at a gun show yesterday and it was marked at $799 but I am sure it will be sold even at that price.

    Pretty sure someone mentioned Kimber buying a new building, maybe there's some downtime associated with moving some equipment around / retooling?
