MADE in the U.S.A.
Kimber builds some of the world's finest pistols, right here in
America--- something that makes sense as few things are as American as
the 1911. The venerable 1911, on its own merit, is an engineering
masterpiece. The simple fact that shooters still marvel today over a
design that is over 100-years-old speaks volumes about the gun that has
stood the test of time.
Virtually every critical component on
each pistol is manufactured inside the Kimber factory. Only the finest
raw materials come through the front gate, and Kimber takes care of the
rest. This ensures every component meets unequaled standards.
Kimber KHX Ultra is a compact- size, 3" barrel 9mm 1911 and
includes a matte black finish. Kimber workmanship and construction
quality are easy to see, even down to the smallest detail. The melded,
flat top, forged steel slide and frame fit together with tight
tolerances and function perfectly.
Recoil on the Kimber KHX Ultra feels significantly less than that of competing designs. This is
due in part to this pistol's lower center of gravity, which is slightly
below the slide, and very close to where the shooter's hand grips the
gun. Although the single-stack magazine puts the Kimber's capacity at
only eight rounds, the relatively small diameter of the 1911's frame
still allow the shooter to create a secure two-handed grip.
of the most distinguishing features of the Kimber KHX Ultra is Hexagonal Slide Cuts combined with the golf-ball texture on the front strap of the grip, which,
along with the G10 grip panels, gives the shooter a very firm grip on
the gun. It has a match grade barrel and bushing deliver tack driving
accuracy. For added reliability, Kimber includes a full- length guide
rod, as the shorter G.I. style guide rods have a tendency to bind or
break over time.
High-vis, fiber optic front and rear
sights sit on top of the slide and provide a
consistent target presentation. The checkering on the mainspring housing
and the texture of the G10 grip feels secure.The knurled extended
magazine release of the Kimber KHX Ultra is a huge improvement over
releases seen on other pistols. Performing tactical reloads is quick,
simple and efficient.
The Kimber KHX Ultra has a single
stage, match grade aluminum trigger is a joy to pull, especially over
the mushy triggers seen on most double action pistols. The 4 - 5 lbs
pull is steady and smooth, while the reset is short and crisp. This is a
gun that fires naturally, even for beginner's that have low and left
trigger slap tendencies.
In fact, the Kimber KHX Ultra has
one of the smoothest trigger pulls of any production 1911 on the market.
Other features include a clean, single sided thumb safety. Many
shooters actually prefer this style over the bulkier ambidextrous
paddles. To further minimize felt recoil, the grip safety is a high-ride
designed beavertail that quickly establishes a positive grip for
maximum control in stress fire situations.
For service or repair,
the pistol is backed by a manufacturers 1- year warranty. Overall, the
Kimber KHX Ultra is a high quality, affordably priced, incredibly
accurate self-defense handgun designed for many years of reliable
