I do not recall ever reading a thread from someone complaining about an Aegis pistol. I've seen plenty from folks saying they just bought one and liked it. I don't remember any mentioning sending an Aegis back to Kimber for warranty work either. Some times a lack of bad information is a piece of good information. Check out an Aegis at your LGS. If it fits your paw, you like how it feels and the action, GO FOR IT!!! DARE TO BE GREAT!!!!! Let us know what you decide. If you get it, please send pictures and a range report!!
