Kimber Rapide Black Ice Features

The Kimber Rapide Black Ice is a semi-automatic 1911 pattern pistol that operates on the Browning short-recoil, tilting-barrel action found in the original pattern.  This Kimber is based on 80-series prints with many ergonomic and functional improvements while maintaining many of the traits expected from 1911 owners.  The Rapide is built with a 5 inch barrel paired with TruGlo Day/Night sights that are adjustable for windage.

Kimber Rapide Black Ice Ballistics

Kimber Rapide Black Ice Capacity

This particular Kimber is chambered in 9x19mm Parabellum, .45 ACP and 10mm Auto.  Across all three variants, they have a standard magazine capacity of 8 rounds. 

Kimber Rapide Black Ice Ergonomics

The Rapide is built with standard-pattern controls with the improvement of an ambidextrous extended safety selector.  The trigger is precision machined to have an incredibly smooth 4 to 5 pound trigger pull.  The front and back of the grip are textured for a good balance between comfort and control as well as the G10 grip panels that offer excellent traction.

Kimber Rapide Black Ice Fit & Finish

The Kimber Rapide Black Ice is built almost entirely with stainless steel parts and has a slide and frame that are hand-fit to ensure reliability.  The barrel features a DLC coating to reduce wear and drag when the action is cycling.  The slide includes lightening cuts around the midsection of the barrel that also allow it to cool faster, though this does open the gun to allowing foreign objects into the action.

Fit and Finish

Kimber Rapide Black Ice Concealability

Measuring 8.7 inches long, 5.25 inches tall and 1.3 inches wide, the Kimber Rapide Black Ice would be difficult to conceal without a good holster and flowing attire.  The notable height would likely cause the bottom of the grip to easily print through most clothing.  Since this Kimber was built for competition, it is most easily carried in an open-carry setup.
