The Kimber Royal is the first incarnation of what is now being manufactured by Kimber as the, you guessed it, Royal II. The main difference between the Royal and any of the other guns in the Custom line is that the Royal has a very reflective (fingerprint magnet) blued finish, and dark, rosewood grips.

As is probably obvious, the Royal is of the 1911 persuasion. It follows the original blueprints almost exactly; internal extractor, single stack, etc. The only differences between the Kimber and the original GI issue is the addition of competition parts, like the trigger, grip safety, hammer, etc.
