Yes, that WAS the main reason! The black triggers are ugly and looked wimpy. The original was black and sucked big time.

Yes, the Kimber mags that come with the pistols are different than what you can buy spare, which are better. That is why I chose those. I will certainly get some Wilson and some Sig.

that is a good tip.
