With a bold Western aesthetic, Kimber's new Kimber Royal II (Texas Edition) 1911 pistol was designed to celebrate the American values and 2nd Amendment rights activism shared by those who call the Lone Star state home.

The pistol is offered in limited-run of 800 units, and features a unique serial range beginning with the prefix “TXEB”. It follows the Stainless II (Texas Edition) introduced in 2015. A deep black oxide finish with high polished flats on the slide and frame accentuate the western leaf and scroll engraving with saw tooth border on the slide. A matching engraving pattern also adorns the mainspring housing. The 1835 state motto, “Come and Take It,” appears on the left bonded-ivory grip panel, and the “Lone Star" flag embedded inside an outline of the state of Texas graces the right grip panel. This pistol, offered in .45 ACP, has a 5" barrel and weighs in at 38 oz. MSRP: $1,633
