For all you Kimber fans - they have entered the double stack 9mm 1911 arena.
As far as I can tell from the photos, this is completely different configuration from the rest of the field, Staccato, Springfield DS Prodigy, Stealth Arms Platypus, etc. The closest counterpart I have found is the Stealth Arms Platypus. The Playpus retains the grip safety whereas the Kimber has deleted it. Both the Kimber and Platypus appear to be a one piece frame/receiver configuration. In contrast the Staccato and Prodigy are two piece frame/receiver configuration consisting of a frame with a grip module pinned to the bottom. For example, this is a Staccato frame/receiver:
@Jerzy can correct me if that is not the serialized frame part of the Staccato.
There are already a number of YouTube reviews of the Kimber KDS9c available. This is the ever popular Colion Noir’s review: Kimber’s First Double Stack 1911 For Concealed Carry - Kimber KDS9c First Mag Review - YouTube
With the exception of the Staccato, the others are roughly $1.500 MSRP.
The only personal experience I have with any of these is the Staccato. I can tell you if I would of had a couple thousand extra disposible income available, there would be a Staccato living at my house right now
