    Easy, anyone can file a lawsuit over anything.

    Glock sued S&W over the SIGMA and won.

    Keltec is currently suing Ruger over their new pistol.

    Crimson Trace is suing Laser Max over a blatant copy of their product.

    ...which will determine whether or not I pick one of these up.

    I like it, but I don't want another Series II Kimber. I have enough.

    I don't own any Series I models.

    I'm assuming its got a steel frame. I don't want anymore aluminum framed models.

    Pretty sure it's aluminum my friend.



    ETA;


    The Super Carry family – the three models in this line will all have alloy frames, a recessed slide stop hole like on the Crimson Carry II family, a high cut lower trigger guard like on the newest Gold Combat II models, a melt finish & silver KimPro on the frame with black KimPro on the slide making this a two tone gun, Wood Micarta Grips – Linville color (new color for Kimbers), and a bobbed mainspring housing. The sights will have a cocking shoulder like the SIS line, ambidextrous safety, and new cocking serrations called Super Carry Serrations. These serrations will look similar to those on the Raptor slide but sharper and reversed in direction.

    Bummer :crying:

    I carry a Pro CDP, but I'm just not into alloy framed 1911s. Who knows, if it really looks good, I may make an exception and get another light weight.

    Thanks for the info.

    per the Ed Brown website:

    however, the Kimber looks like it's probably different enough to avoid any lawsuit.
