Kimber’s Rapide Dawn 1911 Custom comes equipped with a wide array of accuracy-boosting enhancements to make it a high-performance target pistol. Like all of Kimber’s 1911 handguns, the Rapide Dawn Custom utilizes a match-grade barrel and a match-grade trigger, but Kimber takes these features one step further. The barrel is optimized with a TiN (Titanium Nitride) finish, giving it a striking gold appearance while also improving durability and reducing friction. The trigger is V-Cut, and breaks cleanly at 4 to 5 lbs. For increased accuracy and faster target acquisition, this 1911 is outfitted with Tru-Glo TFX Day/Night sights with a high contrast orange ring on the front sight. For superior weapon control, the Rapide Dawn Custom comes standard with black/gray G10 grips with aggressive texturing, and stepped cocking serrations on the slide for positive manipulations in any conditions.
Other features of the Rapide Dawn 1911 Custom include lightening cuts on the slide, this reduces lockup time and shows off the gold TiN finish on the barrel. The frame sports a textured front strap for better grip, and a high undercut trigger guard allows for better grip purchase. In addition, the slide is hand fit to the frame, and both are given the KimPro finish for superior resistance to the elements and a unique look.
