Is the only difference between this gun and a regular pro carry the thin grips?
Looks like there's more than that.
I believe the Aegis is similar to SA's EMP in that it is a purpose designed 9mm (although the EMP is offered in 40). I think the frame is slimmer than a 45 Auto based gun, etc. there are also obvious differences to the PRo Carry like front strap checking, different sights, etc.
I have never owned an Aegis, I have had an EMP, it was not a happy gun. It was one of the early editions, went back and forth a few times, enough that I lost faith and sold it. I have not heard about similar issues with the Aegis.
I have an aegis pro. It is a standard pro sized pistol with thinner grips. Shoots great.
That's what I was wondering about. I love the 2 tone look and I was thinking I was reading everything right. Just wanted to make sure before I went looking for one. I have poor impulse control sometimes when the gun is in hand.
It has a thinner grip as well as a flat top on the slide and an itty bitty thumb safety that I replaced on mine. As Lew says, the Pro is a great pistol.
I got mine yesterday. Already ordered some VZs for it and a slim line magwell and some dawson mags to try in it. I'll probably end up changing the sights because I'm gonna use it for IDPA and for carry and I'll get a regular TS fitted then. I'm sure the one on it is great for carry but it's not the best for how I shoot.
Thanks for the help everyone.
Bringing this thread back from the dead...tell me everything about Kimber Aegis Pro.
It is a great pistol. I have many rounds through mine with no issues.
its a steel frame correct?
It has been modified by a gunsmith to create a CCO pistol. The grip was shortened to officers size and a magwell was added. I have used this for carry and competition in IDPA compact carry pistol class with zero malfunctions. All internal parts are original Kimber except the trigger which is a short trigger.
very nice! I wish Kimber would offer more compact/CCO options. Thats awesome you found a Gunsmith who could do that.
I am in gunsmith school now and hope to be able to build guns even better than this one in the future.
Here is mine after some considerable upgrades.
Vz grips? Trigger? magwell? What magwell are kimber folks installing? I was looking at ed browns 2 piece for my kimber stainless.
Smith & Alexander is what I use.
