I don't have a Kimber and am interested in them. Could you post some pictures as I'd love to see them. Are they blue steel or stainless? Also did you do any custom work to the feed ramps so they would take all ammo?

Thanks

Kimbers come in just about any color combo you could want. SS, Matte, Bi-Tone, ect...Don't know if there's a "production blued" but I'm sure the custom shop would building you one. And they pioneered the new craze in "non typical" cocking serrations and front strap checkering on production guns, IE...The Raptor with it's dragon scale shaped cut ins. Mine is called the "Eclipse" finish. The slide and frame are both SS and finished with Kimber Matte Black "KimPro", then the flats are polished back down to the Stainless. Kimber was doing this finish at least 8 years ago when I got mine and I've seen Sig and a couple of others begin to copy it the last couple of years.

Swapped grips on my Ultra Raptor and my Ultra Carry just to see what it would look like. Thos Raptor grips look good on anything.
