Like most firearm manufacturers, Kimber is getting a jump on announcing its new pistol lineup for 2018, which includes a family of red-dot-integrated 1911s, and an expansion of its Micro 9 and Micro 380 pistols.

For starters, the five available variants of the Kimber Aegis Elite 1911-style pistol come chambered in either 9 mm or .45 ACP, in both Custom (5") and Pro (4") sizes. Ready out-of-the-box, it comes complete with a milled and installed Vortex Optics Venom Red Dot 6-MOA sight, which can be co-witnessed with the standard white 3-dot sights. A satin silver round heel frame; Kimber's new AEX serrations on the black slide; a match-grade barrel, 24-LPI front strap serrations; green, black and gray G10 grips; and a premium aluminum trigger round out the features. 

Non-red-dot-mounted models are available in Custom, Pro and Ultra (3") sizes, where green and red fiber optic sights replace the mounted red dot sight.

MSRPs on the Aegis Elite range from $1,021 to $1,415, depending on model.

The Kimber Micro and Micro 9 (.380/9 mm) new product lineup include eight new variants of the desirable small-scale 1911s, with all-metal construction and all made in the U.S.

You can see the eight new Micro models at KimberAmerica.com, but here's a preview of two of the Micro 9s and a Micro 380. The Micro 9 Desert Night (DN) (below left) features a black slide, desert tan frame, TRUGLO TFX Pro Day/Night Sights and a Kimber-branded Hogue wraparound grip. MSRP: $755

 

The Micro 9 Two-Tone (DN) (above right), features a black slide and small parts, stainless frame, TRUGLO TFX Pro Day/Night Sights and a Kimber-branded Hogue wraparound grip. MSRP: $755

                 

The Micro Eclipse chambered in .380 ACP features a gray slide with brush polished flats, gray frame, black small parts, gray and black Cyclone G10 grips, and 3-dot tritium night sights. (MSRP: $679)
