Just when we thought that there is no way Kimber could put another twist on the 1911, they unveil six new pistols for 2009, including the Tactical Entry II. It’s a loaded 1911 semi-auto chambered in .45 ACP, featuring a stainless steel frame, match grade barrel, night sights, an extended magazine well, and 30 lines-per-inch frontstrap checkering for a non-slip grip. The most significant aspect of this pistol might be the integrated tactical rail for attaching lights/lasers. Discharging the Tactical Entry II requires a four-to-five pound pull on the premium skeletonized aluminum trigger, after releasing the handgun’s reliable safety systems. For more information, visit
