Kimber Warrior SOC!?!?!




I recently purchased my first kimber it is a pro TLE II and I am hooked. After looking further into Kimbers line of pistols I have decided i want to add a full size '5inch' to the collection I was just curious if anyone owns a kimber Warrior SOC, special operations capable. Or if anyone knows if Kimber is even shipping them yet? The only information I have been able to find is a video from the 2013 shot show... All information is greatly appreciated

First of all, Welcome to the Forum.

If you are dead set on that particular model be prepared to wait a fairly long time. Kimber introduced the Classic Carry Pro at the 2012 SHOT Show and I do not know of anybody that has yet taken possession of one, a few people have gotten a hold of the Sapphire Ultra II that was introduced at the same time.

So you are probably looking at a wait time of another 6 months or more before the SOC starts hitting the shelves, just my uneducated guess.

Unless you are hung up on the color scheme, a blue Warrior is a FINE 1911.
The difference is the colors, CT Laser, and the grip panels.

I forgot to look and see which state you are in, but if your state requires a firing pin safety,
the Tactical Entry is a fine choice.

The advantage in either the blue Warrior or the TE is that both are available now.

Unfortunately, you are probably in for a long wait. However, the wait just makes it more special once you get it.

Like the others have said, it is probably going to be a long wait. For example, when Kimber released the Solo Carry, I waited about a year to get mine.

I would kiss a fat babies butt for a Warrior SOC. Let me know if you find one.

I just picked up a used desert warrior today at a good price. It looks like the SOC has a different color frame (OD green), rail laser, and grips from the standard desert warrior. Might want to look into just changing out these items if you have to have one. This is my second Kimber and it feels like a good gun. Will know a lot more after a trip to the range in how it compares to my Pro TLE and my Dan Wessons.

I really love the OD green on the SOC. When I bought my Warrior I actually wanted a Desert Warrior. I could have bought one but something was wrong with the thumb safety's finish. Looking back it wouldn't have been a big deal but I am really glad I got the regular Warrior. I think it looks pretty awesome and if you don't already have a black gun it is an excellent choice.

Still under 500 rounds on it and it has some slight FTLs, but nothing I can't correct in under 2 seconds (usually the slide just doesn't go back into full battery.
