Kimber introduced its Aegis Elite Custom (OI) as part of a brand-new 1911 family for 2018. Along with a factory-installed Vortex Venom 6-m.o.a. red-dot sight, this capable carry gun—offered in both 9 mm Luger with a nine-round magazine and .45 ACP with an eight-round capacity—boasts a round-heel frame, 24-l.p.i. frontstrap checkering and a skeletonized aluminum trigger. Holster-friendly at 8.7"×5.25", and weighing in at 38 ozs., it has a profile that balances concealability with shooting comfort. The Aegis Elite’s distinctively serrated, matte KimPro II-finished slide contrasts with a satin-silver stainless frame to create a striking look, complemented by G10 Cyclone patterned grips. kimberamerica.com
