Well, here’s a twist: Instead of waiting for the new year, Kimber has just announced the hot new guns that they’re rolling out for the year 2020, and the list includes something for every handgun enthusiast, from 1911s to tiny CCW guns, to revolvers. Although details are scarce as to availability and pricing (which is to be expected for a “sneak peek” like this one), we know from history that these firearms will bring the quality and reliability for which Kimber is famous. Here’s what we have to look forward to for the next year.
Given that Kimber is probably most famous for their high-end 1911 handguns, naturally, the list starts with a high-performance example of the genre, and it’s called the 1911 RAPIDE Black Ice. The RAPIDE Black Ice boasts performance-enhancing features including stepped cocking serrations, slide lightening cuts for faster lock time, striking two-tone KimPro finish, DLC coated barrel for extreme durability, flush fitting magwell, a match-grade trigger that breaks crisply at 4-5 lbs., and Tru-Glo TFX Pro Day/Night Sights.
The next introduction is the Raptor Collector Edition family consists of the Stainless Raptor II (1911), EVO SP Raptor, and Micro 9 Raptor. We’re told that these beautiful pistols will be offered for one year only, so no doubt they’ll become collectibles. Each Raptor will wear a unique two-tone finish, accented with a special patterned G10 grip with the trademark grip scale pattern. Night sights are standard on all, as is the special Collector Series marking on the left side of the slide and special serial number prefixes to mark these unique items.
For the Micro 9 lineup, Kimber has added 2 new models, the Amethyst and Triari. The Micro 9 Amethyst addition includes all the features consumers have become accustomed to across Kimber’s Gem Tone Line. The Micro 9 Amethyst features a Purple PVD slide with laser engraved border, purple PVD small parts, KimPro II Silver Frame, Purple and Black G-10 Grips with 3 vertical serrations, and standard night sights. The Micro 9 Triari features aesthetically pleasing, fully functional, deep relief laser engraved, stacked cube, front and rear cocking patterns on the slide. It also features a Stiplex front strap pattern, and grips with stacked cube pattern for positive grip.
Kimber’s K6s Revolver line adds three additional models for 2020, the K6s DASA 4″ (Combat) and (Target), and the K6s DASA (Texas Edition). The 4″ Target model features extended three finger grips for superior comfort and a target adjustable rear sight for pinpoint accuracy with any loading. The 4” Combat model features an extended combat grip with finger grooves for better control and white dot sights. Rounding out the K6s 2020 lineup, the K6s Texas Edition is an excellent example of a collector edition piece. This revolver features a 2-inch barrel, special G10 ivory grips with the TX state motto, name and flag, our timeless smooth satin finish and fine vintage American Western scroll work engraved on the frame.
