Review of the Kimber Ultra Carry Ii Holster
Kimber Ultra Carry Ii holsters are the newest innovation in gun holster technology. Holsters have been around for decades, but they have always been a bit on the fragile side and prone to breaking when being used frequently. This is primarily due to the poor manufacturing standards of earlier manufacturers and the poor design of today's modern holsters. Most people carry a handgun not only for self defense, but also as a form of sport or recreational weapon.
This brand offers many different types of holsters to choose from ranging from leather, nylon, and even a custom made paddle leather holster. The Kimber Ultra Carry Ii holsters are especially designed to hold pistols since it does not utilize slide action for the operation of the trigger. Instead, it uses a pin system for an easy access trigger release while still allowing an extremely strong grip on the pistol. This eliminates all of the pinching and sagging that usually occurs with older style holsters.
Even though the Kimber name is synonymous with gun holsters, it is not always easy to find a good quality model. Many major distributors such as Cabela's and Black Wolf sell similar products that are not as reliable. However, there are still some very good companies such as Magna Cartridge to stand behind their products with an excellent customer service rating. All of the major companies such as Black Wolf, Black River, Remington, and Smith and Wesson make a good variety of kimber ultra carry Ii holsters to choose from in both online and retail stores.
The kimber ultra cdp ii has a full metal body, which makes it extremely durable. The magazine release latch is easily accessible without having to remove the holster. The magazine can be easily changed in most models without any tools or modifications to the gun. Even though this may seem good, it does mean that it takes more time when changing magazines compared to the older style, which made it less practical for most. This is one of the reasons that we feel that the newest follow... CCJ model is the best concealed handgun holster that money can buy.
In addition, this newer model has an upgraded grip, making it comfortable to carry. It also has a nice padded backrest that provides additional support and comfort. The Kimber Ultra Carry Ii holster is manufactured using top-notch materials, such as heavy duty full metal constructed, stainless steel rivets and heavy duty nylon straps. It is well balanced, easy to open and close, and most models feature an adjustable canteen. Most of the holsters are available in either a black or a tungsten carbide finish.
The kimber ultra cdp ii is the latest follow... CCJ model of pistol holster. It is nice to have the latest in CCJ designs and functionality, but as always, what you pay for is what you get. This is not to say that you cannot find good deals on older CCJ models, but you will usually be waiting for at least 50 years for the latest models to become available. If you are looking for something more current, then the kimber uPc Carry Ii is probably your best option, but keep in mind that many gun owners prefer the feel of the heavier duty nylon straps over the light nylon straps on the newer models.
This holster is designed with comfort in mind, using a 2-piece design so that the holster itself and the magazine are securely fastened together, and they move freely when you are wearing the belt. The 2-piece design makes it a bit more difficult to get to the magazine if you are wearing the belt, but most people will not notice the difference anyway. The gun itself also is very comfortable to hold, and the 1911s magazines will fit just fine in them without having to worry about sagging or tearing. The best concealed ultra-compact cds for this model are actually not made by Kimber, but rather Cabela's, so make sure you read their warranty before purchasing one.
All in all, this is a great product if you are looking for the best concealable pistol belt holster. The slide is easily accessed, and the gun itself does not feel as heavy as other models. Overall, this is an excellent product that can save you money in the long run if you decide to upgrade to a different model in the future. For now, though, you get the same great gun, same great slide, and a comfortable gun belt. If you want to save money while carrying your gun, than this is definitely the best concealed ultra-compact pistol holster that you can buy.
