It looks like Kimber is going to break the ice for gun companies by beginning to announce their new firearms for 2019 which we shall surely see at SHOT Show in January! First up is 3 new offerings through their Micro 9 line-up of concealed carry, hammer-fire pistols. The KHX line which was just introduced in 2018 through their full-frame 1911 models will now be applied to the Micro 9. A new series entirely is the ESV which will make its debut in the Micro 9 pistol as well.
Kimber currently has a lot of offerings through their Micro 9 series so what is different about these new ones for 2019?… Well, for one, the curb appeal and aesthetic is on point with something you might purchase out of a Custom Shop. The ESV series boasts front slide cuts and porting on a gold titanium nitride (TiN) finished barrel. You also have smooth handling with edges similar to their Carry Melt de-horning finish seen on their full-frame 1911 models. Aside from that you also have tritium night sights, a checkered front strap, and a checkered mainspring housing for strong handling.
