Kimber Aegis Ultra Elite 9mm, my first Kimber

My Dad always had Kimbers and Iíve looked at them a few times. I have a Dan Wesson Valor Commander, but I needed another carry piece. I love my 1911 so much, I wanted an Officers. I looked at the EMP 3, Sig Ultra, and Eco. For some reason this one spoke to me the most and the price was good. Look forward to inspecting, cleaning, oiling, and shooting this little horse. Same breakin as my Dan Wesson it seems. Should run no issues. Would like some mag suggestions. Iím guessing the Kimpro 1000139a is the go to mag? Thanks again for any help and look forward to being on this site. I have 2 Wilson officers mags.

aqualung: Welcome to the forum, and congrats on your first Kimber....it's a good one too!

Eight Kimbers for me, my two rotational EDC's are two Ultra CDP's in nine and .45. LOVE these pistols, and they are incredibly accurate for having a 3" barrel.

One of my Kimbers is the Aegis Elite Custom w/factory MRDS in 9mm. The best range gun I've ever owned (a tad big and heavy for CC though).

Sounds like you're in good shape in regard to magazines with both Kimber and Wilson. Those are my two choices too.

(Your screen name.....are you a scuba diver? Almost 50 years for me.)

Nice catch, I recently got the eco in 9. As far as your name I was thinking Jethro Tull?

Aqualungs, yeah I was thinking Jethro Tull also. Anyway welcome to the site from Tennessee.
#feelingold, seeing you say "your Dad liked Kimber's." You made a good choice.
You will enjoy the new shooter.

Welcome to the forum from Northeast, Pa.

Several members here use magazine from Joe’s. Great price and I haven’t had any problems with any of their magazines.

Kimber Aegis Ultra Elite 9mm, my first Kimber

Happy Friday! Just brought her home, Very impressed with fit and finish. The Dan Wesson is definitely a step up, but this is very nice and it is a carry pistol.
