Kimber Ultra Crimson Carry II

I understand the Kimber Ultra Crimson Carry II and all the other Ultra Carry II are a series 80 pistol with the safety.
Has anybody bought the spacer kit.
Or changed their Ultra Carry II ,to 70 series Safety ?

Any Kimber with the designation "II" in it's name has the firing pin safety block. Models like the Master Carry and Super Carry without the II do not have this safety.

No spacer kit is needed on a Kimber, to disable the firing pin safety you need to remove the rear sight then remove the spring and block from the slide. If I may ask, why are you considering doing this?

Understand a 70 series don't have all the moving parts that have pressure, and can get dirty and jam up and give possible problems.

I own 3 "II" guns, between them they have about 25,000 rounds through them and I've never once experienced a problem of any kind caused by the firing pin safety.

Only if you try and do it all in 2 or 3 range trips.
I spread it out over 10 years, I keep shot records on all my guns.

Why do you keep shot records on your guns? I've never heard of anyone doing that.

9MM - 12 lbs., change every 2000 rounds.
10MM - 18.5 lbs., change every 1800 rounds.
.38 Super - 14 lbs., change every 2000 rounds.
Firing Pin Spring: change every 5000 rounds.
Mainspring: 21 lbs., change every 5000 rounds.

Compact & Pro Models:
Recoil Spring: 9mm/14lbs .45 ACP & 40 S&W/22 lbs., .38 Super/18 lbs.
Change every 800 rounds.
Firing Pin Spring: change every 5000 rounds.
Mainspring: 23 lbs., change 5000 rounds.

Ultra Carry Models:
Recoil Spring: 18 lbs., change every 1800 rounds.
Firing Pin Spring: change every 5000 rounds.
Mainspring: 23 lbs., change every 5000 rounds.

Micro Carry Models
Recoil spring should be replaced every 1000 rounds.
