SHOT Show 2020 – Kimber showcases its entire line of new products for 2020, including three new variants of the K6s DASA revolver, three new variants of the Micro 9 pocket pistol, and two new 1911 based pistols in the Rapide and Raptor II lines
Kimber's new product line for 2020 was, as usual, announced initially halfway through December. At the 2020 edition of the SHOT Show, in Las Vegas, the Company showcased its whole new lineup of handguns and revolvers – a true feast for our eyes.
The Kimber 1911 RAPIDE Black Ice is the main new entry in the Company's acclaimed line of 1911 pistols; available in 9mm Luger, .45 ACP and 10mm Auto, the Kimber RAPIDE Black Ice features stepped cocking serrations, slide lightening cuts for faster lock time, striking two-tone KimPro finish, DLC coated barrel for extreme durability, flush fitting magwell, match grade trigger breaking crisply at 4-5lbs, and Tru-Glo TFX Pro Day/Night Sights.
The next introduction is the Raptor Collector Edition family consists of the Stainless Raptor II 1911 pistol available in 9mm, .45 ACP and 10mm Auto, and of the 9mm EVO SP Raptor and Micro 9 Raptor subcompact pistols: all will be offered for 2020 only, making them true collectables. 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, both available in 9mm only.
The Kimber 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 Kimber 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.
Also new for 2020 are three additions to Kimber’s K6s line of revolvers, specifically the Combat and Target versions of the K6s DASA 4" and the collectable K6 DASA Texas Edition.
The Kimber K6s DASA 4" Target model features extended three finger grips for superior comfort and a target adjustable rear sight for pinpoint
accuracy with any loading, while the K6s DASA 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 Kimber K6s DASA Texas Edition is an excellent example of a collector piece: this revolver features a 2-inch barrel, special G10 ivory grips with the TX state motto, name and flag, Kimber's timeless smooth satin finish and fine vintage American Western scroll work engraved on the frame.
