With a name familiar in Europe commonly used for a fast express train– and a popular Aston Martin model– the Rapide is billed by Kimber as a 1911 platform built for speed and is both competition and range ready.
The Rapide runs a match grade barrel w/ DLC coating, has black G10 grips, a full-length guide rod and a V-Cut aluminum trigger factory set at between 4 and 5-pounds.
The pistol is feature-rich including stepped cocking serrations, slide lightening cuts for faster lock time, a DLC coated barrel for extreme durability, flush-fitting extended magwell, and new V-Cut match-grade trigger. It also comes with Tru-Glo TFX Pro Day/Night sights and black G10 grips.
