Editors’ Picks 2017: Kimber’s Camp Guard 10
Kimber’s Camp Guard 10 is “big medicine” for backcountry hunters prepared to counter attacks from bears, wolves or other threats. Like all Kimber 1911s, this one is machined with exacting tolerances and subjected to tough quality control. Its 10 mm Auto chambering (eight-plus-one ammunition capacity) brings ample power to bear, and at 38 ozs., and equipped with a 5" barrel and a round-heel frame, the Camp Guard 10 is designed for prolonged carry. Features range from three-dot tritium night sights to the durable KimPro II metal finish to carved rosewood stocks that, in this initial run, salute and benefit the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation. kimberamerica.com
