Kimber Classic

I have a chance to trade on this gun today. Any ideas on value.

It looks a lot like one of the Shot Show Special guns they have offered...if so it's about a 500 dollar gun at most. That's just my opinion of course.

If it's an older pre-series II Kimber, it's worth more, if it's a Clackamas a lot more. Got pics of the other side?

If you post this on Kimber Talk you'll get some good responses also.

It has the old box, as well as the carbon fiber trigger. It's a good chance it's an older gun.

People will pay a premium for a Clack marked gun, and perhaps a few bucks more for a early Yonkers marked gun.

600/650 would be about what it's worth if it were a Yonkers marked gun, maybe 700 for that guy that wants an early gun.

The Clacks have been all over the board worth wise. I don't follow them, but the last plane jane Clack marked gun I saw for sale, was right at 1K. This was a few years back though, and I have no idea if someone paid that much for it.

He posted some more pics on another forum. It's a Clackamas all right! Sweet, nice find for sure.

Yes it’s a nice find. The serial in 6000 range.

1996 build, first year of the Kimber 1911's. This was the model that started the whole semi-custom movement. Congrats. The last pristine Clack I saw sell went for $1100.

I used to have one of those in the SN 2000 range. I should have never gotten rid of it. Like AZ said these were the guns that put Kimber on the map and forced all the other 1911 manufacturers to either up their game or get off the field.

Avoid the temptation to replace everything on your brand-new 1911 just to make it "better". Know what you're changing out and why. You may spend a lot of money fixing things that weren't broken to begin with. Shoot at least 500 rounds through it first, then decide what you don't like and want to improve. Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.
