2018 FRIENDS OF NRA GUN OF THE YEAR SET:
Kimber Custom II .45 ACP and Silver Stag Knife with Display Case

The 2018 Friends of NRA Gun of the Year Set brings together two perfectly paired pieces in a custom display case designed to showcase the Kimber Custom II “Defending Freedom” 1911 and the Silver Stag 1911 Sidekick Fighter knife with matching grips and Friends of NRA embellishment.









The Gun of the Year embodies Kimber’s commitment to crafting firearms of unequaled quality and dependability. Chambered in .45 ACP, the Kimber NRA Custom II “Defending Freedom” is a full-size 1911 with a 5-inch barrel.

A specially engraved slide features the NRA logo and the words “Defending Freedom.” The slide also wears a self-lubricating Desert Tan KimPro® II finish that offers outstanding additional resistance to chemicals, moisture, salt and UV light. This is complemented by a matte black frame, which is paired to the slide early in production to help ensure optimal fitting. Tactical G-10 grips ensure a secure grip, while a lowered and flared ejection port allows brass to easily clear the slide. Like all Kimber 1911s, each part of the “Defending Freedom” is manufactured to the tightest tolerances and fitted together by hand with exceptional attention to detail. An excellent choice for both carry and home defense, the “Defending Freedom” is proudly made in America and, as a member of the Kimber family, is “What All Guns Should Be™.”

The 1911 Sidekick Fighter knife from Silver Stag completes this set. The skillfully handcrafted fixed-blade knife is the perfect tool for deer camp or self-protection. The 6-inch hand hollow-ground and jeweled high carbon D2 steel blade and leather sheath with vertical and horizontal carry options both feature engraved Friends of NRA logos. VZ Grips are customized to match the Gun of the Year, creating a duo that you won’t want to put down. When you do, the display case’s black foam interior with two cutouts for gun and knife will ensure it is stored securely beneath the lid engraved with the Friends of NRA logo. Silver Stag Limited Lifetime Warranty. The Gun of the Year set is limited to 1,100 units and available exclusively at Friends of NRA events.
