Somebody on one of the other boards posted this link, commenting that this new Kimber KPD “sure looks a lot like a Steyr.”

http://www.kimberamerica.com/kpd/

And - except for the DAO trigger - yeah, it does! Kimber even boasts about how the piece “fits the hand and points naturally.”

I’m still a Steyr believer . . . but I still wouldn’t mind testing out this new Kimber. Anybody checked one out yet?

8-9 lb trigger pull EWWWW.. definately a S&W byproduct.. not Steyr. although the Slide "LINES" and rear of the firearm have similarities of a steyr pistol..

Yes, I wasn't thinking "Steyr-like" in the mechanical sense. I just thought that the dished-out area in the top rear of the grip (where the web of the hand goes) looked awfully Steyr.

From that, I wondered if it points like a Steyr. Only Steyrs (and, to a lesser extent, Glocks) really point well for me. 1911-type pistols all point low.

You're right, though: if it has a long, heavy DAO trigger, I'd probably still pass on the piece, even if it points well.

What if the Steyr and Kahr had a mutant child?

Looks ok really but as said... who thought that trigger pull would be acceptable to anyone but the HIPOINT set?
