    So I was at the doctors today and found an advert for the Kimber Rapide 10mm in a Shooting TImes magazine. Still in the waiting room I started web surfing then this happened:

    New for 2019: Kimber Rapide 10mm (also available in .45 acp):

    So, being a Sig fanboy I began surfing to see what's up in Sig 10mms

    and I found this (stoopid brain, wallet hates you)

    This is DA/SA



    But they also do SAO

    And, what's even worse, my LGS is a dealer :(

    I've eyed a Sig Hunter in 10mm many a time.

    But my RIA Tactical 10mm 1911 shoots so well the Sig could never match it.

    Prefer a 1911 for single stacks but that Kimber sure does have a lot of extraneous holes and a gold barrel, Ruger makes a nice 10mm 1911.

    Hate to do it to you man, but yeah.....

    I know they aren’t the highest capacity, and some folks have very legit arguments for different models being “better”but they are great shooters. The DA/SA comes with nightsights. Standard decent Sig trigger. Decocker too.

    The SAO has a nicer trigger and adjustable sights. The Stainless SAO is my preference of the two, but the DA one is a great field pistol.

    Mine shoots tight groups after I worked on it. 460's SIGs are awesome!

    Are those three holes in the slide like the chrome vent looking things Buick put on the front fenders back in the 50/60s?

    I’d be curious to know how the chamber support is on that Kimber.

    I would imagine it is fully supported. The chamber on my kimber camp guard is.

    I bet you’re right. The days of poor 10mm chamber support seem to be over. It just pisses us hand/reloaded off too much. :D

    It’s what we live for on THR brother.

    To put in words spoken by Samuel L. Jackson, we want guns to multiply “like catholic rabbits”.
