Wow, I have no idea. If you could disassemble it and take some good hi-res pics, we could probably tell you how it was made. But I've never seen one of those before now.

Just a thought, but you might look around the large auction sites like gunbroker, etc. You might find a picture of hammers on pre Series IIs.

My oldest has a 30K serial, and has the standard hammer. I've never seen one like the OP posted.

I have half a dozen Series I Kimbers and they all have the same hammer including this Classic Royal in the 28K serial number range.

Oh, and if that is a Kimber hammer on your gun it's most likely MIM.

My Pre-Series II ProCarry Stainless has the same hammer, and BTW, there were no Series I Kimbers.

What are you going to call them, then? "Pre Series II" like a "pre-Model 10" S&W M&P?
Or just apply Internet English which defines anything without a firing pin obstruction as a "Series 70?"

I have seen hammers like that advertised. I suspect Kimber was outsourcing them.

Ya, and there was no World War I either. At least not until World War II.

Both my Kimbers bought in the late nineties CDP and Ultra carry have these hammers.

They are called by the model name. If anyone has seen one actually advertised as a Series I, please post a link for us to see.

In one of Kimber's owner's manuals, they actually used the term "Series 1". Surprised me a bit to see it.

Actually, it was called the Great War until WWII came along. 😊

And Kimbers were great guns until the Series-II came along.
