Kimber has expanded its impressive 1911 lineup for 2015 with the addition of three combat-ready handguns that offer cutting-edge refinement to the classic warhorse platform. These tactical .45 ACP handguns include the Warrior SOC (TFS), the Desert Warrior (TFS) and the Pro TLE II (TFS), all of which feature threaded barrels for the attachment of a suppressor and the classic controls of the 1911 platform.

The Warrior SOC (TFS) features a dark green frame and a dark earth slide, giving the pistol an appealing two-tone aesthetic. The pistol has a 5.5-inch barrel and an overall length of 9.19 inches. Front and rear slide serrations aid in slide manipulation while Kimber’s G10 tactical grips provide a solid hold for the operator in any environment. The pistol also features a Crimson Trace Rail Master laser sight.

The Kimber Desert Warrior (TFS) is another new threaded-barrel 1911 that offers 7+1 capacity in .45 ACP. The pistol features a Picatinny rail for the attachment of a light or laser aiming device as well as an ambidextrous thumb safety and a 5.5-inch barrel. Coated in a dark earth finish, the Desert Warrior is ready for action thanks to its G10 grips and Tactical Wedge tritium night sights.

Finally, Kimber’s Pro TLE II (TFS) offers a threaded 4.25-inch barrel, a no-nonsense matte black finish and 7+1 rounds of .45 ACP. The 1911-style design features a full-length guide rod, frontstrap checkering and standard three-dot Meprolight tritium night sights.
