Tactical model dropped?

I do not see the Tactical model in the '17 catalog or on the website anymore. Dropped?

Unfortunately you are right, the Tactical line has been dropped. I think the Tactical line was one of the best offered by Kimber, I wouldn't trade my Ultra Tactical for anything.

You may still be able to find some available on GunBroker or some of the other online sites, maybe even LGS. If you really want one.

Looks like the Aegis line is gone, too.

Seems that there is more 9mm across various platforms, and 38 Super is only available on the Eclipse 5". I'm sure I missed a few othe calibre adjustments.

Since the Aegis was only in 9mm, I suppose it didn't make sense to carry it and all the others that are now available in 9mm. Would love to get a 9mm Ultra for my wife, but not at $1,000+. Could get a .45 Ultra for less.

Come on big spender! Or you could get lucky like me and find a Stainless Ultra Carry for $620.

You deserve a profit. How about $625 and I'll drive up to get it? (if she approves) It's not like you are hurting for handguns.


Edit: Maybe you need a P238 to add to the collection. We could work out a deal.

NO DEAL, Howie. I just put Crimson Trace grips on that bad boy plus I really was lucky with that purchase. I took a chance on it, not only was it used (round count didn't bother me) but it was not stock/original, it was touted as being modified for function and accuracy, the front sight had been changed.
Turns out it is accurate, it has not had a single malfunction, I dig the green front sight. So I lucked out.
I would enjoy meeting you but you can't have my 9mm.

BTW, I wouldn't want the CT grips.
