Kimber Solo Carry Crimson Trace Lasergrips
This entry was posted on January 18, 2011.
We're attending SHOT Show this week in Las Vegas and we thought we had seen all the surprises after the Solo Carry was shipped in from Kimber on Friday.
Surprisingly, they already have a set of Crimson Trace lasergrips ready to go for the new Solo Carry (Stainless shown in photos). I think these would be called concept grips or demo grips - I do not believe they are in full production just quite yet.
These rosewood Crimson Trace lasergrips look absolutely outstanding on the new Solo Carry Stainless and they make the gun feel even better in your hand. As you can see in the photos, the grips look and work just like the standard 1911 lasergrips but they fit perfectly on the Solo Carry.
The grips have the standard Crimson Trace front activation button which works great for left or right handed shooters and the on/off switch on the lower right corner of the left grip plate. I'm assuming the grips use the same battery as the larger 1911 grips but I didn't pose the question.
In terms of full production, pricing, and availability, we don't have an idea yet. I think the pricing will be in the lower $300 range and we may not see them until late in the year (for sale).
Update: below is a short video I posted on YouTube showing the grips.
