    My first Kimber

    I picked up my first Kimber this weekend at the gunshow and let me tell you it has to be one of the smoothest shooting guns I own. I got the Kimber Ultra Aegis II.

    I got my first Kimber 3 weeks ago, the Ultra Crimson carry 11. Can wait to get it out for a test drive. You have a nice looking piece there!

    My current EDC is a Kimber Ultra Carry TLE II and I've got about 850 rounds down the pipe without a
    single hiccup... Yeah... I won't be trading this one in anytime soon....

    Okay... one griipe... I HATED the standard grips.... So I replaced 'em...

    These guys make OUTSTANDING grips...

  7. bought my first Kimber 2 Mondays ago.....a Compact Stainless II in .45. Commander length slide w/the short officer's length grip. I've got ~ 250 trouble free rounds thru it so far. I added Hogue grips to it for better grip. I was surprised that is has MORE felt recoil than my dearly departed, MUCH LIGHTER Kahr CW45. Not regretting the change at all, though.

    I have two of those. I got them several years ago, when they still came with bobbed hammers.

    I paid Kimber to put Commander-style hammers on both of them, and others must have, too, because it looks like they come with them, now. :)



    I just bought a set of Crimson Trace Lasergrips in rosewood from Kimber. If you go that route, be aware you'll need to buy a set of stainless standard-length grip screws, as well. The ones with the thin grips aren't long enough to engage the hole, with full width grips.

    Good Luck with your Kimber!

    I need to replace the right side ambi safety to clear a set of CT grips. I have the short right side safety that I purchased from Kimber. Is it a difficult task to make the switch? I am pretty handy with minor gunsmithing but don't know if I should turn this over to a "real" gunsmith or not. Please give me you take on this of if you have done it were there any things to look out for.

    Thanks

    Sorry I have not done anything like what your talking about. I know Crimson Trace said I would have to do the same process for my Taurus PT1911. You could try AGI and see if they have a video on how to change out the safty.

    I have a problem guys, my wife shot the Aegis II last night and fell in love with it like I did. She is the one that got it for me, I told her if she gets me the 45 Ultra Carry II with the Crimson Trace grips I would consider letting her use it every now and then.
