Less is more. Many shooters with small hands are forced to carry a revolver for self-defense because the grip of a semiautomatic is too large. Enter the Aegis, a 9 mm pistol that combines the real-world advantages of a 1911 in a platform with a smaller grip. Small, light and accurate pistols get carried. Bulky guns get left home. Light weight, compact and absolutely reliable, Aegis models are built in the Kimber Custom Shop for shooters with small hands. Thin grips, altered controls and rounded edges make them easy to shoot. A great single-stage 1911 trigger that breaks clean at 4-5 pounds makes them easy to shoot accurately. Standard features include night sights, 30-lines-per inch front strap checkering and a premium two-tone KimPro II finish that is both self-lubricating and extremely resistant to moisture. Self-defense is no place to compromise.
