You have a great gun, so anything you would do regarding cosmetics would be personal opinion.

Hmmm. I've never had a manufacturer threaten to void a warranty for a polished feed ramp (including Sig when they had my p220 for night sight installation). I did have one tech (not Sig) ask me if their custom shop polished the ramp on one of my pistols -- I told him that I did it and his only comment was "nice job". Shining up a feed ramp a little is not exactly major modification. I suppose some manufactures might try to use it to wiggle out of a warranty but that would be the last time I'd ever buy anything from them.

Any mods would be done by sig anyway, as the factory is 30 minutes from me.

Just enjoy it like it was meant to be enjoyed. Sounds like you got an unheard-of deal.

I would say enjoy it as is. Its a fine looking gun, fun to shoot. All id suggest is to get more mags. Preferrably wilsons

Never owned a Kimber? They will void your warranty for changing grips!

Just shoot the heck out of and clean and oil it well and if there is a need to do something to correct and issue than do it. But I wouldn't polish the feed ramp if its not necessary. If you DO have any issue, get SIG involved. Their CS is great.

The trigger in my SIG 1911 was a bit gritty brand new but after a few hundred rounds and some proper maintenance it's super smooth now. I wouldn't change a thing on my SIG other than adding some ambi controls like a thumb safety and/or mag release. The SIG magazines are great so no need to go aftermarket for those. You got a great deal on a great pistol!!

Agreed. If that is really Kimber's policy, they will never get any business from me.
