Master Carry?




I do not have a 1911 but am thinking on it a lot. I like the Smith and Wesson 1911 Sc but the Kimber Master Carry is also of interest.

Any thoughts? Experience? It will be for daily CCW.

I highly doubt it. Kimber has not started shipping some of the new ones from last years show.

Wow, just took a peek at that, the Master Carry is a great looking pistol. Very nice collaboration with Crimson Trace on the grips, I dig it.

I've read up on this one too and like it a lot. I can see it being pretty pricey considering it has Crimson Trace and night sights standard on all models.

Looks like a Super Carry with CT grips. You can buy very similar grips already for a Super Carry. I've been waiting for the Classic Carry from last year.

I can't really speak for the master carry due to it being so new. But I can attest for the E series. It is a terrific 1911, well made and it shoots great. The scandium frame makes it nice and light without giving it too much kick. I would recommend it if you're thinking about it. You won't be sorry if you grab one. They look beautiful too. I think the master carry is going to be much the same as most other Kimbers, especially the super carry models. I'd have to get my hands on one to really form an opinion on it though.

I just received Kimbers 2013 catalog. The Master Carry is a less fancy version of the Super Carry with CT grips. The MC doesn't have the same sights or slide serrations as the SC. The SC is still Kimbers top tier Custom Shop Carry model. The CT grips on the MC don't round down as smooth at the heal of the gun as the SC grips?? I am not sure why.

I do like the looks of the mater carry but would be worried about the Kimpro finish wear. I'm thinking of adding a 4 inch to my 1911 collection, I have a eclipse target and a Ultra TLE and love the looks of this new pistol but just not sure of the wear. Does kimpro hold up better on steel than alum in anybody's opinion?

Since we are on the subject of the MC, I was wondering are there any big difference between this and the Ultra TLE LG, I'm considering the Ultra TLE LG as an everyday carry, but I also like the MC. I know they change the butt to a round edge, but does that make much of a difference when carrying conceal? I plan on carrying it in a high shoulder holster. Please give me the feedback on the difference between the two, the Kimber website doesn't give much of a comparison information.

Thanks in Advance

I chose the covert ultra over this it's all preference to the little details that are different on each model test before you buy and know what you want and like

I own the full size master carry , lots of gun for the price. They have been in the stores for a few months now.

To the OP I bought mine in Columbia if you cant find it in the upstate.

Hi Delvecchio,

Thanks for the advice, yeah I was thinking of doing that, but it seems that all the stores around me don't even have the Ultra Carry TLE LG, so nobody here seems to carry the Master Carry, all I can find is the Ultra Carry. I guess I'll just have to keep searching or perhaps travel a bit further.

Thanks

Hi Carlisle,

That's some distance for me since I'm in Wisconsin, but I'll keep an eye out for it. One of the biggest firearm stores here is Gander Mountain, but they don't seem to have much of the Ultra Carry, and no Master Carry at all. I guess I might have to travel to find a store that quite possibly have both if I'm super lucky.

Thanks

Thanks for the info Fast Eddie, yes I been on there looking for them, it's just not the same seeing it in person, holding it and seeing least how it feels in your hands. I guess that will have to do. Though people say I can't go wrong with either of them.

Thanks

Hey this is directed towards Packers,

Gander(Gun World) and Cabelas both have Ultras and full sizes(at least as of last week). I am not sure whether or not they have the 4.25's or w/e the measurement is though as I was looking more so at their collection of Para's at the time. I did pick up an SS ultra carry from Cabellas a couple months back too.

Just to stay on topic though, Master Carry is nice but I'm in love with the Super Carry's. Hope that was on topic enough.

Go Pack!
