From dazzling pistols to unexpected rifles that debuted at SHOT, the company’s booth was lined with the latest and greatest offerings. Kicking off its new product line was the highly anticipated Rapide Black Ice 1911.

Packed with features, this gun opts for stepped cocking serrations, slide lightening cuts, flush-fitting extended magwell and V-Cut match-grade trigger in addition to Tru-Glo TFX Pro Day/Night sights and black G10 grips. This, of course, all comes on the gun’s two-tone silver and gray frame. Shipping with one 8-round Tac-Mag and chambered in .45 ACP, 9mm and 10mm, the Rapide retails for $1,500.

The Kimber K6s Target

Expanding on the K6S wheelgun family, Kimber released new 4-inch models — a Combat, Target, and special Texas edition. The 6-shot .357 Magnum brings a bevy of features depending on which version you opt for. The Combat sports a full-size double-action/single-action build with walnut finger groove laminate grips and white dot sights. The Target ditches the finger grooves for a flatter grip area and upgrades the sights to an adjustable rear sight and a red fiber optic front. Both the Combat and Target retail for $989.

Rounding out Kimber’s exciting releases was a new set of rifles which launched at SHOT Show. The Open Range Pro Carbon rifle series ships in two flavors — Granite and Open Country. The Granite offers an understated textured granite color on an AG composite carbon fiber stock while the Open Country opts for a soft-touch GORE Optifade Open Country pattern.

Both rifles come chambered in 6.5 Creedmoor and .308 Win with an overall length of 43.5-inches and weight at just over 6-pounds. The Open Range Pro Carbon series sees the addition of a PROOF Research carbon fiber wrapped barrel. The Open Range Pro Carbon Series is priced at $3,099.
