Default I bought a Kimber Pol ymer Gold Match .45 Cal

I just bought a Kimber Polymer Gold Match .45 Cal.



I didn't even know that Kimber made a "Plastic" gun.

Any one own one of these or can anyone give me any information on it?

I'm off to shoot it this afternoon.

I do not believe they sell that model anymore. And, if I remember right, they are actually Israeli made by BUL. Various variations of them have been imported and stamped with various company names over the years.

Here are a few links for ya: Can anyone tell me anything about the Israeli Bul pistols? - 1911Forum

1911 Bul M5 - Glock Talk

The BUL 1911 polymers....anyone have any experience with these? - THR

@ shipwreck -

Thank you it's that kind of info that I'm looking for.

Thanks for your information - I've gotten very good input from different gun forums.

I think I've found out that BUL made the frames and Kimber supplied the tops.

I just got back from the range.

It shot like a Kimber - in other words - like a dream.

Absolutely not a failure of any kind in my 1st 100 shots.

I usually do not take pictures of my targets - but here are my 1st ten shots



that's from 21' and is probably as good as I can do.

The reason I do not usually take pictures is that I get worse the longer I shoot.

Looks like I've found a "keeper"

I like it.

I called Kimber and found out the frame is made by BUL Israel and the rest of the gun by Kimber in house.

In 1994 the did get a lot of design help from Chip McCormick, but did not sub-contract any manufacturing to him.

My gun was made in made 10/24/2001.

They made this gun for about 8 to 9 years.
