Kimber Partners with RMEF for Personal Protection in the Backcountry

YONKERS, NY, — Kimber Mfg., Inc., a leading American firearms manufacturer, today announced the release of the Kimber® Camp Guard 10™ – a premium 1911-style defensive handgun developed in collaboration with the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation (RMEF).

Designed for use in the backcountry, the Camp Guard 10 is comfortable to carry and combines sought-after personal defense features with the stopping power required for the largest of predators. Chambered in 10mm, this full-size 1911has a 5-inch barrel, slim, single-stack design and weighs only 38 ounces. A KimPro® II finish on the matte black slide resists the elements while the Satin Silver Round Heel Frame is complemented by custom RMEF carved rosewood grips. Tactical Wedge 3-dot tritium night sights enable rapid sight acquisition in low light situations, while 30 lines-per-inch front strap checkering provides a positive grip.

A portion of all Camp Guard 10 sales will go directly to RMEF conservation and land access projects across the United States.

“Kimber is honored to be a longstanding fundraising banquet partner with RMEF,” said Richard Kirk, Kimber’s director of marketing communications. “We are excited to offer a fantastic camp gun to hunters and recreationalists, while at the same time contributing to RMEF’s great work with elk habitat conservation efforts.”

Featuring custom serial numbers, Camp Guard 10 pistols will be available in limited quantities through the first few months of 2017 at regional and national RMEF fundraising banquets.  Starting in early 2017, Camp Guard 10 will also be available for purchase thorough any Kimber Master Dealer. Camp Guard 10 has an MSRP of $1,905.
