Embrace the Future of Carry: Kimber KDS9c - A Double-Stack 1911 Revolution

Nov 21st 2023

Introducing the Kimber KDS9c Double-Stack 9mm Compact Pistol – the perfect blend of classic 1911 elegance and modern functionality. This high-capacity carry gun, produced by the world's largest 1911 pistol manufacturer, addresses the age-old dilemma of choosing between iconic design and increased round capacity.

Key Features:

  • Increased Capacity: Boasting a 15-round magazine capacity (with 18-round mags coming soon), the KDS9c eliminates the compromise between classic lines and additional rounds.
  • Lightweight Precision: Crafted with a precision-machined aerospace-grade 7075 aluminum frame, this 9mm pistol weighs just 25.3 ounces, offering an appealing balance for everyday carry.
  • Enhanced Safety: While retaining the essence of John Moses Browning's design, the KDS9c features a longer manual safety lever for improved control. The absence of a grip safety and traditional barrel bushing contributes to a sleek profile.
  • Precision Barrel: The 4.09-inch ramped stainless steel barrel, fluted for reduced weight and enhanced aesthetics, delivers match-grade accuracy with a 1:10 barrel twist.
  • Optics Ready: The stainless steel slide is cut to accept micro optics, with available mounting plates for RMSc/Holosun K, providing versatility for different sighting preferences.
  • Aesthetic Appeal: Aggressive front and rear slide serrations, distinctive "crosshatch" texturing on the front strap and mainspring housing, and G10 grips contribute to both control and comfort.

Additional Upgrades:

  • Reliability: Lowered ejection port and a serrated, skeletonized trigger with a 3.5-4.5-pound break enhance reliability and shooting experience.
  • Visibility: Original 1911 sights are replaced with a proprietary serrated adjustable rear sight and a fiber optic front sight for improved visibility.
  • Practical Design: Reversible magazine release accommodates left-handed shooters, while the bobbed frame, extended beavertail, and classic 1911 grip angle enhance balance and control.


  • Stainless Version: Featuring a KimPro Silver finish on the slide and frame, complemented by grey and black crosshatch G10 grips.
  • Black Version: With a KimPro Black finish, maintaining the elegant aesthetics, and the same grey/black G10 grips.
