    Kimber- Clackamas

    Hello All;
    The first, non-Colt 1911 I purchased was a Kimber. It is a "Classic Custom".

    It has a flat-black, phosphate type finish and nice rosewood panels. The scroll mark says "Clackamas Oregon". Being an old-timer, I know that is where the sporting rifles had their home.

    I bought this firearm new about 18 years ago. Since then, I see they say "Yonkers" on them and I can't find source mentioning the Classic Custom.

    What are your opinions of this piece?

    All the best and thanks.

    +1. I have one NIB salted away. They were made in New York, but at the time the Yonkers facility lacked the FFL to manufacture, so these were shipped to Oregon for assembly as I recall. Great pieces.

    thanks for the info guys. I have only about 300 rounds through this arm. No malfunctions....shoot extremely well in the accuracy dept.

    I remember paying $550.00 for it. Remember though, that was in 1990 dollars.

    I'll admit that I've kind of taken to "sticking this one away" since a frined of mine bought one a month later and it said "Yonkers". I know that doesn't mean a thing as a "shooter" but, I thought it was a transitional thing that could be important as a collector.

    It's the only gun I know that has increased in value by 100% in twelve years.
