KHX custom 9mm or Aegis Elite

Anyone have experience with either of these guns? I want to be able to put a reflex sight on whatever Kimber i get and according to kimber none of their new 1911s can be milled and these are the only two that are offered factory milled.

Sorry no hands on experience, heck not even seen either model in person. Looks like it depends on if you like the two-tone or solid look. Between the two, I would probably pick the Aegis Pro (OI) but that's just me. The Aegis model line has been dedicated 9mm since day one.

I have a KHX Custom (OR) in 9mm. I have been to the range twice now with it and really like it a lot. I am a big raptor fan and would take the KHX over my custom raptor 9 any day of the week

KHX over the Raptor is a claim I didn't expect, interesting.

Well truthfully my Raptor Custom 9mm is the only Kimber I own that is finicky but I would say the KHX is right up there with with my .45 Raptor Custom which is by far my favorite. Still love the look of the Raptors over all the other models though

There is a pretty big gun show here Saturday that I'm probably going to, mostly just to get out of the house. But maybe I will see some of the new models there.

You might want to look for another safe while your there, especially if your wife left you unsupervised again.

The perfect opportunity to sneak a new safe into the house.
