I e-mailed Kimber a while back about this and they replied that due to lack of demand for the 9mm it was never produced. The since pulled it from the catalog.

I ended up purchasing the Springfield 1911-A1 Loaded. Nice gun but I was a little disappointed in the finish (or lack of). Shoots good, but very sharp edges on the machining. I'll drop it off at a gunsmith one day to de-horn it.

Hmmm...how does Kimber know what the demand for 9mm Kimbers is...I know I would be interested in one.

Kimber didn't recieve what they felt were enough pre-order's for the 9mm and .38 super. They've finally come out with a .38 super, but in the Gold Match SS, checkered, flat top and pricey. So, it'll sell decent, but probably reinforce the idea that there's not enough demand for a .38 super in a regular Custom.

The last conversation I had with Dennis at the Custom Shop was they have no plans for a 9mm in the near future. You might want to look at a SA 9mm. While it is not quite as good as a Kimber it is a pretty decent gun. After fitting a tighter barrel bushing to mine I was able to get 25 yd groups in the 2" range. I was also able to get a nice crisp 40 oz. trigger pull using the stock parts. BTW McCormick 10 rd. .38 Super mags work well.

Do they work out of the box, or do you you need to handload? I thought I heard someone talking about this at the range the last time I was there, but I thought I heard something about modifying the length. Not sure though...
