I love the new look of the Aegis OI. Anyone know if this will be coming out in an all black? If so when?

I doubt you’ll see black in 2018 but I’d be a big fan if it did.

Ugh don’t know if I want to wait over a year for it to come out in different colors. Might just have to yolo and get this design. Dunno why they wouldn’t make it in all black though, it would look so clean. Any idea when it will be avil for purchase in 2018?

I'm waiting for the Aegis Elite Custom (OI) to become available myself. I don't care what color it is, I want to put a .460 Rowland conversion kit in it, LOL.

You could Cerakote the frame black.

Another 460 Rowland Chuck, good for you. Looking forward to seeing it when you get one.

I am guessing the multi-tone guns are selling better, as they converted even the entry level guns to it.

What makes you think Kimber may offer it in different colors?

I agree with JC I doubt it will be offered in all black. I think Kimber thinks two tone looks more custom, expensive.

Like JC said cerakote the frame black would be cheap and easy but I like it the way it is.

I say the first ones you see will show up on GunBroker so I suggest doing a detailed model specific search every day. Price will probably be premium but it'll show up.

I would not expect to see any of the new models until at least late Spring 2018.

I love the first one I put together, I'm surprised more guys haven't tried this yet. Imagine shooting a 5" 1911 with 8 rounds equivalent to a .44 mag but with the felt recoil of a .45. That and the ability to shoot normal .45 ammo through the conversion kit. All for about $340.00 and no gunsmith work required, can it get any better?

My hold up is deciding on which donor pistol I want to use. Then finding a suitable price on a donor pistol.

Donor pistol needs to have a steel frame and be full size? Right Chuck? Seems like I read that someplace.

Just about any modern 5" gun will work, they even make a kit for a Glock. You can check out the "Potential Conversion" list yourself. I used a Kimber "Custom II" Two Tone that I picked up for a song, it had been sitting in a LGS for ages.
