New Kimber Handguns For 2019 | The Kimber EVO SP, K6s DASA, And Kimber Micro 9 ESV

Kimber recently sent out a dealer only email that informed dealers that they can now order 2019 models through their Kimber reps. The 2019 models aren't in stores yet so don't go buggin' your local gun store just yet.

Kimber EVO SP

First up is the Kimber EVO SP, a striker fired sub-compact pistol with an all-metal construction.  All versions of the pistol will feature G10 grips, tritium night sights with a high contrast front sight, a reversible magazine release, and a 6 to 7-pound trigger pull.

Kimber 001

The Evo SP will be available in four configurations, an all black CS version, a TLE version, a CDP, and a two-tone finished model.

MSRP for the new Kimber Evo SP starts at $856 for the two-tone, $925 for the TLE, $949 for the CDP, and $1047 for the top of the line CS model.


Kimber K6s CDP

Kimber also announced the K6s CDP .357 Magnum revolver, a variation of the well-received K6s released at SHOT 2017. If you opt for the CDP LG (laser grip) model, it will feature Rosewood laminate grips that incorporate a Crimson Trace Master Series lasergrip instead of the standard Rosewood grips found on the CDP model.

Kimber 002

The K6s CDP also features tritium night sights, a black DLC finish over brushed stainless steel, a serrated back strap, and the smooth non-stacking trigger that the original K6s launched with.

Kimber says that the K6s CDP will carry an MSRP of $1,179 for the non-laser model, the lasergrip model will come at a cost of $1,510.


Kimber K6s DASA

It seems that this year Kimber is focusing on extending the K6s product line this coming year with yet another addition, the K6s DASA model.

Kimber 003

Being offered in both a 2-inch and 3-inch variant, the hammered version of the K6s should be popular with traditional revolver lovers. The DASA will feature a brushed stainless finish and two sizes of walnut laminate grips depending on barrel length.

The K6s will be offered with an MSRP of $970 for either barrel length.


Kimber K6s DC

As strange as it might seem, I think I enjoy the Kimber K6s the most out of the new revolver models with its black DLC finish over the entire gun and black and gray G10 grips.

Kimber 004

Like the K6s CDP, the DC will be offered with or without Crimson Trace Master Series Lasergrips installed. As best as one can tell, the K6s DC appears to be the CDP model in an all black DLC finish. There is just something about a blued or black snubby that looks right in my humble opinion.

The Kimber K6s DC will carry a base MSRP identical to the CDP at $1,179 and go up to $1,485 for the Lasergrip model.


Kimber K6s TLE

If a full-size grip on your snubby is your jam, you might want to look at the Kimber K6s TLE.

Kimber 005

Offered in both 2-inch and 3-inch barrel lengths, the K6s TLE shares many of the same features with the rest of the K6s line like its tritium night sights, non-stacking trigger, and 6 shot capacity. You also get a set of full-size green and black G10 grips on this gun.

MSRP is set at $1,020 regardless of barrel length.


Kimber KHX

Kimber is also adding an optics ready 1911 to their lineup as well as models with the optics installed from the factory with the Kimber KHX. Now not all models of the KHX are optics ready, so pay attention to what you order online if you want to red dot all the things.

The KHX will be offered in the standard 9mm or .45 ACP options in all sizes, but if you want something with a bit more punch, the 10mm full-size options might be the ticket.

Kimber 006

Kimber will be offering the KHX in Ultra, Pro, and Custom sizes but only the Pro and Custom have an optics ready option and only the full-size optics installed model will be available with a rail. The KHX also incorporates slide serrations with a hex pattern and carries that theme into the Houge G10 MagGrips that will have a red laser built in if the pistol is not optics ready or optics installed. The models of the KHX that are able to accept a red dot will not have a laser installed.

MSRP for the Kimber KHX has a wide range starting at $1,087 for the KHX Pro optics ready and heads on up to $1,967 for the 9mm or 10mm KHX Custom/RL with a type 2 Trijicon RMR RM06 installed from the factory.



Kimber Micro 9 ESV

Kimber also introduced a couple of variations of their Micro 9 platform, the first one up is the Micro 9 ESV. The pistol draws inspiration from the aftermarket with windows in the slide revealing a TiN coated barrel hiding under the slide.

Kimber 010

In addition to that TiN coated barrel and milled slide, the Micro 9 ESV comes in either black or gray KimPro II and is kitted out with tritium night sights, checkered front and backstraps, black G-10 grips, and a ported slide.

MSRP for the Micro 9 ESV is $799.


Kimber Micro 9 KHX

The last Micro 9 to be announced is the KHX. As you might expect, the pistol shares many of the same styling features as the larger KHX we talked about earlier. The Micro 9 KHX features the same colors as well as the same hex pattern motif on the slide and grips.

Kimber 011

Unlike most of the other pistols launched, the Micro 9 KHX features fiber optic sights with a sharp ledge to aid in one-handed manipulations instead of the standard tritium option.

MSRP for the Micro 9 KHX is $815.


Kimber Hunter Boot Campaign

Next up is the Kimber Hunter Boot Campaign, a variation of their popular Model 84 rifle.

Kimber will be offering the Hunter Boot Campaign in .243 Win, 6.5 Creedmoor, .308 Winchester, .270 Winchester, .280 Ackley Improved, and .30-06 Springfield initially. Each one of the caliber options will be in a Kryptek Highlander finished synthetic stock cut for a removable box magazine.

MSRP for the Hunter Boot Campaign will be $1005 for all calibers.


Kimber Mountain Ascent (SubAlpine)

Last new product being introduced for 2019 is the Mountain Ascent rifle, again based on the Model 84 that Kimber has been building for years.

The Mauser style action features a three position wing safety, a fluted bolt, a fluted bolt handle with a hollow knob, and a full-length Mauser claw extractor. Kimber then mated the action to a 24 to 26-inch fluted barrel depending on caliber topped with a radial muzzle brake.

Kimber 007

The reinforced carbon fiber stock is covered in soft-touch Gore Optifade Subalpine camo keeping the overall weight under six pounds for all but the .300 Win Mag chambered rifle which comes in just over six pounds.

The Mountain Ascent rifle will be offered in .308 Winchester, .280 Ackley Improved, .30-06 Springfield, .300 Winchester Short Magnum, and .300 Winchester Magnum. MSRP will be $2,082 regardless of caliber.

More from Kimber:

Today is the day! All of our 2019 New Products are now available to order through their Kimber Sales representative. Leading our 2019 product lineup is the brand new all metal construction striker-fired EVO SP. With four models in this initial release, we believe the EVO SP is the ideal choice for shooters that demand a dependable, feature-packed, compact-size firearm with the benefits of all metal construction for reduced muzzle rise.

Six new models, including two hammered models, make their debut in this 2019 release. The K6s DASA features a knurled hammer spur and is available in 2- and 3-inch barrels. TLE finish is now available in the K6s platform and Crimson Trace Lasergrips models are now available in the DC and CDP finishes.

Micro 9 gets a new family: the ESV. The ESV (Black) and ESV (Gray) featureported slides to better show off the beautiful Titanium Nitride (TiN) finish on the Black and rose copper Titanium CarboNitride (TiCN) finish on the Gray. The KHX finish comes to the Micro 9 platform this year and much like the big brothers in the 1911 platform, this Micro 9 has the same Hogue G-mascus grips, fiber optics sights, and hexagonal serrations.
