THE RAPIDE BOASTS PERFORMANCE enhancing features such as stepped cocking serrations, slide lightening cuts for faster lock time, Tritium Nitride (TiN) coated barrel for extreme durability, flush fitting extended magwell, new V-CutTM match grade trigger—breaking crisply at 4-5lbs, as well as Tru-Glo® TFXTM Pro Day/Night sights. The new for 2019 RAPIDE is equipped with Kimber StiplexTM front strap texturing, as well as the new G10 WavZTM grips for additional grip confidence; finished with KimPro®II for additional resistance to chemicals, moisture, salt and UV light. RAPIDE will ship with one 8 round Tac-Mag Magazine.

All of these features are coupled with the standout features that can be found across the Kimber 1911 Custom Platform. Barrels are machined from stainless steel to critical match grade dimensions, hand fitted to the frame, slide and bushing, with match grade chambers
