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.
