Kimber just dropped a new version of their high cap, single action 9mm KDS9c, the appropriately named KDS9c Rail. If you like the 1911 but want a lightweight, modern carry version then the KDS9c Rail is it. In addition to the new light/laser rail it also comes with Truglo night sights and is optics ready. It uses 15-round magazines and comes with an extra extended 18-round magazine as well. Check out the specs and press info on the KDS9c below, and hit Kimber’s website for more details.

The new KDS9c Rail from Kimber is the next step in this highly popular 9mm-chambered introduction from Kimber. Featuring an ambidextrous safety and Picatinny rail, the KDS9c Rail is a feature rich concealed carry firearm. The barrel is fully fluted, crowned and ramped. Kimber’s proprietary bore sizing process is designed to deliver match-grade accuracy. The company’s engineers chose 7075 aluminum and sculpted a frame for superior ergonomics. Serrations wrap around the front strap and grips or better handling. A reversible magazine release provides for rapid reloading flexibility for left- and right-handed shooters. The KDS9c boasts a crisp 3.5-4.5lb trigger pull and the firearm is fed from a 15-round magazine. The gun also comes with an 18-round extended magazine for more capacity.
