Very interesting to say the least, some nice looking shooters.

I am not gun bashing in any way, shape or form by saying this but post after post on the forum talks about micro problems and 50% of the new offering is the micro line. Hopefully they got it right this time.

Seem a lot based on the "Super Carry" line.

And "Wilson Combat" style.

Both .45 and 9mm.

Initial impression, Kimber is "Grasping at Straw".......

Nice to see Steel Frames return......

The KHX Pro might be interesting....

Darrell, one or two was almost looking kind of Jesse James style to me. I want them to offer more with threaded barrels. The only serrations I really like is the style on the Raptors.

To me it appears they are about (3) years behind the times..

A Super Carry platform might be nice in 9mm....

And I.M.H.O. they are trying to capitalize on an affordable Wilson Combat EDC X9 styling....

Optics on a pistol is a fad.

Plus they are running the Micro line into the ground.....

100% agree. If they come out with a "Pink" one we are in trouble. lol

I've gotta say, after seeing all the issues with the micro pistols you couldn't run fast enough to GIVE me one and 1000 rds. of ammo. my 1911's have been pretty much flawless when I do my part. Except for the Rimfire Super, and that's been great with hi-vel ammo.

GOD bless you, John Moses Browning.
