Sunday was Father's Day as we all know. What I did NOT know that I was to receive a sweet new Kimber from wifey for the event! Oh the joy when I opened the box, shaking with anticipation to reveal a nice new Kimber Aegis Elite Custom in 9mm replete with a Vortex Venom 6 MOA MRD (Mini Red Dot) sight.
I have an older Leupold-Gilmore red dot sight on a Ruger MK-I HB .22 auto, but this is an entirely new ball-game.
I like the light/dark grey color Kimber used for this model, and the G-10 grips really make it come alive.
Kimber has milled the slide to make the MRD fit nice 'n snug, almost like it was meant to be there. The three-dot irons are co-witnessed and can be used w/o the MRD and are suppressor-height as issued.
Although the 6 MOA dot appears small when seen with the naked eye, the camera captures quite a different image:
I want to get out to shoot the new toy, but out of town commitments trump that.....for now. I'll be headed out into the outback here as soon as I get back, and that can't come soon enough!
