KDS9c Redemption Promotion

Kimber has launched a special promotion the provides new owners of the company’s popular KDS9c or KDS9c Rail with the ability to customize their pistol right out of the box. The offer—which runs through July 31, 2024— features the ability to select an additional pair of G10 grips in a deep olive or red tone with high texture for increased grip. Plus, depending on regulations in the owner’s state of residence, they will also receive two free 15-round or 10-round magazines.

“This redemption is a key part of providing our loyal customer base with the accessories they want,” said Everett Deger, director of marketing and communications at Kimber. “Plus, as we step into the summer, we wanted to ensure the Kimber KDS9c is the first choice people think of when it comes to a premium defensive handgun and when you purchase a KDS9c you can immediately customize it and have a total four magazines when you head to the range. There is no firearm on the market today that even comes close to the value and dependability of a Kimber.”

The company introduced the KDS9c—a double-stack pistol chambered in 9 mm based on the 1911—at the 2023 NRA Annual Meetings. It’s been a huge success for the company since. The KDS9c Rail, which wears a dustcover rail for weaponlight or laser mounting, hit the market in January.

Both pistols are hot sellers in Kimber’s lineup and feature the assets that make a desirable concealed carry design. An alloy frame trims weight, the stainless steel slide maximizes durability and, thanks to the double-stack configuration, magazine capacity is up to self-defense duties without adding undue length that often prints through light clothing.

The KDS9c Rail is a full-featured gun with light and optics mounting capability. Its 4-inch barrel is fully fluted and crowned, its extractor is external, the safety is ambidextrous and magazine release reversable.

New owners taking advantage of the special promotion must redeem the offer online here.
