Small and light enough for backup, perfect for concealed carry
A pistol carried for law enforcement or used for defense must be dependable. Safety, accuracy and power are important, but dependability is paramount. Kimber Tactical models were designed with that in mind. They also include some of the most popular Custom Shop carry features and showcase a dynamic new two-tone matte finish.
Like some other Kimber models, the frame of each Tactical is machined from proven 7075-T7 aluminum. These frames are dramatically lighter than those cut from steel yet every bit as strong. Light pistols are easier to carry, and 1911 pistols with aluminum frames weigh about seven ounces less than those with a steel frame.
The new Kimber Tactical Extractor is another standard feature. Extremely reliable under even the toughest field conditions, it is a logical addition for a pistol that might receive infrequent cleaning. It never needs adjusting and works equally well with light practice loads or heavy carry ammunition.
The Custom Shop’s Premium Aluminum Trigger breaks between four and five pounds with minimal creep or overtravel. Kimber trigger quality is without peer in production semi-automatic pistols, and a great trigger makes a huge contribution to accurate shooting.
Meprolight three dot (green) fixed night sights with Tritium inserts make the rounded and blended low profile fixed sights stand out even in low light conditions. In daylight they also provide white dots for fast reference. Extended ambidextrous thumb safety and black/silver laminated logo grips round out the Custom Shop parts. Each model also has a matte black extended and beveled magazine well for fast reloading, and each magazine is fitted with a bumper pad.
