The Warrior SOC (Special Operations Capable) .45 ACP is a full-size 1911 designed for absolute dependability under harsh conditions.

Working at the request of the United States Marines Corps Forces Special Operations Command (MARSOC), Kimber designed the ICQB (Interim Close Quarter Battle) pistol. Designed specifically for operations in the harshest conditions, this pistol was built to the highest standards using the best quality parts—as specified by our most elite Marines. A result of this design, Kimber’s new line of Warrior pistols was made available to the general public. While not exactly the same as the ICQB, they are built with the same basic specifications in mind, as well as with an eye towards complete reliability in all conditions.

Based on real-world experience, some changes were requested to the 1911 platform with the ICQB and Warrior pistols. The frontstrap checkering was removed to eliminate snagging on gear. An ambidextrous thumb safety was added, along with a standard-length, mil-spec guide rod, which allows the pistol to be taken down easily in the field without tools. G10 grips were attached to provide for a solid hold, especially for shooters wearing tactical gloves. Kimber also added a Picatinny rail to the frame for adding lights and lasers. Rounding out the primary differences is a lanyard-loop-equipped mainspring housing and Kimber’s Tactical Wedge low-mount night sights. These changes meet the needs of a number of operators and have made the Warrior one of the company’s most popular lines. The new Warrior SOC (Special Operations Capable) has a few more additions.

Kimber builds some of the world's finest pistols, made in the USA, something that makes sense as few things are as American as the 1911. The venerable 1911, on its own merit, is an engineering masterpiece. The simple fact that shooters still marvel today over a design that is over 100-years-old speaks volumes about the gun that has stood the test of time. Virtually every critical component on each pistol is manufactured inside the Kimber factory. Only the finest raw materials come through the front gate, and Kimber takes care of the rest. This ensures every component meets unequaled standards.
