Kimber’s Digest

A handy guide to the extensive lineup of 1911s offered by one leading maker.

A bomb-proof design, with rugged parts and a grip and balance that made it a natural extension of the hand, ensured the initial success of John Browning’s 1911 pistol. Its longevity derives from something less tangible. Call it a gunny appearance, military heritage or the eerie conviction you get when you heft it that this is the way all pistols should feel. Custom shops have exploited the design for decades, turning out 1911s that offer not only the reliability of Browning’s first pistol but greater accuracy, smoother function and stunning good looks.

Similarly, a number of gun making companies have entered the high-end 1911 market over the years, but Les Edelman didn’t buy Kimber to produce pistols. The company, founded by Jack Warne and his son Greg, manufactured carriage-class .22 rifles and, later, centerfire rifles in western Oregon.

In 2008 Kimber teamed with Crimson Trace to offer the Crimson Carry, with laser-grip sighting.

Kimber’s fortunes faded during the 1980s. The Warnes were forced to sell the firm to an Oregon lumberman, who in turn went bankrupt—leaving Jack and Greg Warne with use of the Kimber name....

Smith & Wesson Performance Center

For the Model 460, the Center will soon have a full range of barrel lengths to include 3 7/8, 6 1/2, 7 ½ and 10 1/2-inch compensated barrels. With the introduction of the X-frame, all agree that it is an excellent addition to the revolver line, and sales have shown that it is getting to be very popular with the new breed of handgun hunter. Kelly added that while some may shy away from the 500 series because of the recoil factor, with a range of loads that are available using a 275-grain bullet, it not only is a great load for deer or hogs, it recoils less than a .44 Magnum.

Before going on a hunt with Smith & Wesson's Tom Kelly, the author put his Performance Center .44 Magnum in a Ransome Rest and came up with this nice group at 25 yards with Winchester ammunition.

Another factor the Performance Center is facing with the Model 460 and 500 revolvers is that the long-range capabilities of these guns are starting to exceed the handgun optics presently available. The company has contacted Swarovski and Leupold, and both are considering scopes that will tolerate the punishment yet allow the use of these high-powered revolvers to reach out to longer distances.

As a side note here, it's not so much the recoil that will destroy a handgun scope, it's the torque of the gun as you fire it. Looking at the specs of just the Model 460, you are looking at a legitimate 250-yard handgun, which until present times was virtually unheard of, and yet, in optics, there r...
