well after reading the article about it i think i have figured out which kimber i want! it happens to be the warrior!


wanting to know what is a good/decent price range for them so i dont get raped on it. this would be my first 1911 style gun,kimber, other than glock handgun.

also wanting to know if there is only one offered configuration of the warrior... there is a gun shop close to where i work and they have one on sale for around $1700-1900 forgot the actual amount but thats the range it was in.

kimber has the warrior sugg.ret. at $1263
and the dessert warrior at $1282

i like the color of the dessert warrior but also like the traditional black color, is the dessert kimber available yet?

also pics of your own personal one would be great too! something to drool over till one find its home with me.



thanks for any help

Cheapest Ive seen was 1085 at a gunshow. I personally went with the TLE/RL that I bought new for 875.00.

I just paid $1,116.94 with 6% tax included for the Warrior

I paid $853 with 6% tax included for the TLE/RL II (but it was a return by a customer, so it was a bit lower than normal price)

So Fight, which one do you like better? I really like my TLE/RL but Im sure the Warrior is a nice piece as well.

I just paid $900 NIB, but that was from a private seller.

Just got the Warrior, so it's hard to say yet.


I've never had any issues with the TLE/RL II, so ........

thanks for all the replies so far.....

looks like everyone is getting/seeing way better prices than what the gunstore wants.

There was a guy on EE a few weeks ago who was selling 2 NIB for $1000 each shipped.

If I only had the money.
Link Posted: 7/7/2005 5:49:38 AM EDT
I paid $1040 (+ 6% tax = $1102) about 2 months ago at a gunshop here in town.

think that was bigbore @adco


he said he wasnt dealing with kimber anymore.

I debated long and hard over the Warrior when I bought my Tac. Custom II a few weeks ago. The gun store here had them for $1049. I might just start saving up for another.
Link Posted: 7/7/2005 6:59:49 PM EDT
There's one locally for $1135.
Link Posted: 7/7/2005 7:42:57 PM EDT
I know of a dealer who has one new for 1060.00

Gut feel? I'd probably say get the TLE. It's got checkering on the front of the grip, I think that ulitimately the external extractor is better, the series 2 stuff makes the gun a little safer and I've never had a problem with it, I don't need the lanyard loop on the Warrior, and it costs a couple hundred less.

I do like the ambi-safety on the Warrior, and it had different sights, though I can't see if they are "better"

You might want to ask "tiburon" where he's getting his. He told me in an e-mail he has a source for $965 NIB.

Not bad, mine ran me 1025 + tax.
Link Posted: 7/10/2005 12:03:16 AM EDT
thanks for all the replies

from what everyone is posting everyone has gotten better deals than what the gunshop is asking for. almost half of what they are asking for.
Link Posted: 7/10/2005 6:18:38 PM EDT
$1107 w/ sales tax. That was last month.
Link Posted: 7/10/2005 6:29:43 PM EDT
See them listed on GunsAmerica averaging about $1030.00

Kimber's checkering is a waste of money. Why not get a SA and add a rail? It would be about what, 900?

Because then you're stuck with a Springfield?

Seriously though, the Warrior isn't checkered.

What?!? Using that logic:

Why don't you buy a _______ (insert any underpowered car) and add some GTO emblems on the side of it. Then you'll have a car just like a GTO.

I'm sorry. I've been spoiled lately and don't know anything about stock 1911's.

I know the Warrior isn't checkered. I wouldn't own machine cut checkering anyway.

Edited to remove misplaced anger after a 12 hour trip to the auto shop. Sorry.

I believe I paid about $1050 or so for mine.

So it looks like an acceptable price range seems to be between 1000 and 1150 or so.
Link Posted: 7/12/2005 1:47:23 PM EDT
well the cheapest i have found local is $1170


a lot cheaper but still not as cheap as whats posted. did find a nib colt 9mm though
Link Posted: 7/17/2005 2:59:00 AM EDT
$1049.00 here where I live. The store I frequent has the best prices in the state.
Link Posted: 7/20/2005 2:49:36 PM EDT
the gunshop i was talking about has it on sale for $1169 now but the shop down the street has it for $1069


think i found the right price.

thanks for all the help guys. more info on the gun itself would be greatly appreciated

I saw one on gunbroker for $1000. And if that dealer is out of state from your location, then you pay no taxes for the gun too. something to thing about.
Link Posted: 8/5/2005 4:51:26 AM EDT
thanks for all the feedback/replies!



will be heading to the gunshop to haggle a bit and something will be coming home with me.


either the warrior or a colt 6450

Worth every penny


But you will need some gunner grips to do this gun justice.
