The immediate success of the Raptor family (first the Raptor II and the Pro Raptor II) has kept the Kimber Custom Shop™ working overtime. Deciding to go one better, they have just announced the Grand Raptor II™, a drop-dead good-looking two-tone pistol that stands out in any collection.
A full size 1911 with a 5-inch match grade stainless steel barrel, the Grand Raptor II™ features adjustable night sight, black aluminum match grade trigger, bumped and grooved grip safety and rosewood Raptor grips.
Like all Raptors, it has lizard-scale serration patterns machined into the front and rear of the slide. The slide has also been profiled with a flat top and back cut with a single feathered row of large scales that prevent reflection.
The frame is machined from stainless steel and has a scaled serration pattern cut deep into the front strap. Flat surfaces are polished for additional contrast. The slide is matte black with polished flats and engraved with the Custom Shop logo. Suggested list price is $1,396.
