Kimber Aegis Elite Custom

I have been looking for a new 5" 1911 and see this new optics installed Aegis Elite Custom. I like all of it's features, any thoughts about it?

I'm waiting for one to show up in a LGS, I want to check out the optic before buying one. My intention is to take a good gun and make it a great gun by converting it to a .460 Rowland.

I’m getting ready to order one. Just waiting to see how long I’ll have to wait! And yes this could be my 460 candidate.

I just ordered the full size, 9mm with no optics from gunbroker. 850.00 free shipping and no cc fees. I only hope it’s half the gun my gen one team match 38 super is. I will gladly give y’all more on it when it arrives. Should be tomorrow.

Iím looking forward to seeing one myself. I donít really see much not to like, itís going to shoot like any other Kimber 5Ē. If you donít like the optics you can choose a model without the optics.

My new Aegis showed up Thursday and on Friday I put 500 rounds of range ammo threw it. I have one complaint about the gun. Before the first round was fired, I tested the trigger weight. 5lbs 11oz. After 250 rounds threw it the pull had let up to 5lbs 4oz. Now after 500 rounds down range the trigger hasn't let up anymore staying at an avg of 5lbs even. Minimal creep, a little take up, and a quick reset. Other then this issue it is a perfect pistol and able to make a good shooter a great shooter.

Glad to read your positive range report, I'm just waiting for one to show up in a LGS. At 5 lbs your trigger falls within Kimbers specs and is an easy fix if you want to improve on it.

I got to handle one at a Cabela's in SC, feels as nice as it looks, they wanted $1,399 for it, my LGS in VA wants $1,420. Appears I will be doing some on-line shopping when I return to VA.
