I bought an Aegis when the 3" model was the only one offered by Kimber, and I have been carrying it ever since. I was amazed from the start at how reliable and accurate the weapon was, especially for a 3"-barreled 1911. After about a year I started having an occasional jamming problem with hollow points, but I sent it back to the Custom Shop. They tweaked it and I've had no problems since. It is an excellent pistol in all respects. My only wish is that someone would introduce magazines that have a removable baseplace to make cleaning them easier.
