NRA Gun of the Week: Kimber Super Jagare

posted on July 9, 2021

Kimber America has been around for decades with a core business in manufacturing and marketing M1911 pistols, and derivatives thereof. The Super Jagare is Kimber’s hunt-ready pistol built on Browning’s single-action format. This new-age depiction of a vintage blueprint offers enthusiasts and hunters alike with an optic-ready package with increased power from the 10 mm Auto chambering.

The Super Jagare features a full-size stainless steel frame and extended slide fitted with a 6” match-grade barrel and milled for optics—Kimber provides Leupold’s well-regarded DeltaPoint Pro red-dot as a package deal. As such, there is no accommodation for iron sights on this pistol. But, Kimber takes the additional step of providing its Super Jagare with through-slide barrel porting for effective recoil mitigation.

One particular feature that is a boon to hunters and IWB holster users is Kimber’s choice of corrosion- and wear-inhibiting coatings; the company’s KimPro finish in Charcoal Gray is supplied on the stainless frame and Diamond-Like-Carbon coating adorns the stainless slide rendering a matte black appearance.

Further enhancing the user experience, machined-in Super Carry and Carry Melt treatments can be found sprinkled throughout Kimber’s Super Jagare—the gun’s frontstrap, mainspring housing and slide feature these scale-like scallops. Additionally, all metal edges have been burnished or rounded off. This treatment is found to ease holstering.

Rifleman Q&A: Lubricated With Wax?

I have an old box of Winchester-Western Super X .38 Colt hollow-point ammo. On the side of the box is “Lubaloy coated Bullet special dry wax lubricant.”  It seems to me that most modern ammunition is not coated. Why is it (or was it) necessary to put some form of wax on ammunition?
