Kimber Stainless Gold Match II


I had not yet shot a 'product shot' of my Kimber 1911 semi-automatic pistol, so here it is.

This is my Kimber Stainless Gold Match II, chambered in 9mm Parabellum.

It features a stainless steel frame, stainless steel slide, stainless steel barrel, full-length recoil spring guide rod, extended ambidextrous safety (handy for lefties like me), extended high beaver-tail grip safety, finely chequered double-diamond rosewood grips, lowered and flared ejection port, front slide serrations, skeletonised competition-grade trigger, skeletonised competition-grade hammer and adjustable rear sight.

Lighting information:

1.  Canon Speedlite 580EX II at full-power, shot through a 40 x 30cm softbox at 135 degrees camera left, and triggered with a PocketWizard PLUS II.

2.  Silver reflector at 90 degrees camera right to bounce light back into the grip safety.

Important notes:

1.  I am licensed to possess and use this firearm.

2.  This firearm is not loaded.
