Kimber Support of USA Shooting Team Reaches $1 Million

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (January 27, 2012)

KimberAt the 2012 SHOT Show, Kimber® owner and CEO Leslie Edelman presented a $160,000 check to the USA Shooting Team, the latest installment in a successful partnership based on sales of the Team Match® II pistol. This increased Kimber’s total contribution to $1,000,000, the largest donation from a fi rearms company in Team history.

To prepare for Olympic competition, members of the USA Shooting Rapid Fire Pistol Team compete against professional shooters on the national action shooting circuit. Accustomed to shooting the world’s most accurate pistols, the Team chose Kimber to build competition guns chambered in both .45 ACP and 9mm. Kimber offers the identical model —the Team Match II — to the public and contributes $100 from each sale.

In addition to the check, Edelman presented the Team with a unique and highly-customized Team Match II .45 ACP to commemorate the sale of 10,000 pistols. Featuring scrimshawed ivory grips crafted by Dan Chesiak and a mirror-polished fi nish, this one-of-a-kind pistol bears serial number “USA-10000” and rests in a wooden display case. The USA Shooting Team intends to auction the pistol this spring as they prepare for the 2012 Olympic Games.

The Team Match II has a stainless steel slide and frame, along with an adjustable rear sight.  Custom features include 30 lines-per-inch front strap checkering, an extended and beveled magazine well for fast loading, and a match grade barrel, chamber and trigger group. Red, white and blue grips with the Team logo set the Team Match II apart.

Like all Kimber pistols, the Team Match II is proudly made in America and available at Kimber Master Dealer locations across America. Suggested retail price is $1,546.
