Kimber has a fantastic competition pistol in the Team Match II. This pistol is one of the company's masterpieces in 1911 design philosophy.

Designed for action shooting competitors who need the knockdown power of the .45 ACP cartridge (also available in 9 mm), this pistol is more than another 1911 at your next single stack match.

Kimber's attention to quality components is legendary, and the Team Match II is no different. The adjustable sight, with steel-on-steel click adjustment dials (6.8 inch radius), is dovetail-mounted into the slide.

A 5-inch, match-grade barrel and bushing, high-strength stainless steel frame, an aluminum trigger set from the factory to a 4-5 lb. pull (with the clean break you would expect from a Kimber 1911), and an extended magwell that is often favored by action shooters.

Best of all, the Team Match II slide features the USA Shooting Team logo engraved in 24k gold.

Kimber did not stop with these high-quality components. The workmanship is top-notch, even for the high standards that made the company famous.

For example, the steel match-grade barrel is machine oversized, and then fitted by hand in the custom shop for accuracy. The beauty in this pistol is unmistakable.

Kimber has generously donated $100 of every Team Match II pistol sold to USA Shooting.

Since 2003, Kimber has supported USA Shooting with contributions based on sales of the Kimber Team Match II 1911 pistol. To date, they have donated $1.3 million.
