Commemorative Kimber Pistol and Rare Hornady Zombie Max Reloader Up for Online Auction

GunBroker.com, the world’s largest Internet auction site for firearms and accessories, is hosting two unique online auctions to benefit the USA Shooting Team’s quest for Olympic gold this summer. Through Sunday, April 29, GunBroker.com members will be able to bid on a unique Kimber Team Match II .45 ACP and a Zombie-green Zombie Max Ammo Plant by Hornady.

Commemorative Kimber Team Match II “USA-10000” - “One-of-a-kind” from Kimber Custom Shop

The unique and highly-customized Team Match II .45 ACP was presented to the USA Shooting Team by Kimber owner and CEO Leslie Edelman at the 2012 SHOT Show. A one-of-a-kind pistol, it bears serial number “USA-10000” to commemorate sales of 10,000 Team Match II pistols. In addition to the standard features of the Team Match II, this spectacular pistol has a mirror-polish finish, scrimshawed ivory grips with the USA Shooting Team logo crafted by Dan Chesiak and rests in a walnut and glass presentation case.

Kimber generously donated this Team Match II “USA-10000” to the USA Shooting Team, with all proceeds supporting the training and preparation of team members competing at the 2012 Summer Olympic Games this London.

The Kimber is available for bidding at: http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.aspx?Item=281817454

Rare Hornady Zombie Max™ Ammo Plant

Identical to the brand new Hornady Lock-N-Load Ammo Plant in every way but one, this Zombie Max version has been designed to complement Hornady’s limited-time Zombie Max ammunition. Hornady Tool Division workers crafted the green paint and “zombified” graphics as a surprise for the company’s President and Vice President, Steve and Jason Hornady as a way to build excitement for the launch of the Zombie Max line. Hornady donated the reloader with the specific purpose of helping the USA Shooting Team raise much needed funds for London.
