Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois wpkraft, yes it will void your warranty. When I upgrade parts I always save the old ones in case the gun has to go back to Kimber for any reason. Before the gun is shipped back the original parts go back in.

Technically, the answer is yes. However, when I called Kimber CS to send my Solo in due to the front site becoming loose in the dovetail, the rep asked me if I had made any modifications. I said yes and told him about the trigger. He said that if I sent in a gun with aftermarket parts, Kimber would remove them, replace with Kimber OEM parts and charge me. Point being that they would return the gun to original condition. So, I sent in the slide only. Point is, it sounds like technically the warranty is void, but realistically, they will fix the 'broken' part or make adjustments to fix the issue while returning it to OEM spec. I'm going by memory (and that's becoming less and less reliable) so I would follow Chuck 43's practice of keeping original parts in case you have to return it for warranty work. I guess I could have said this in fewer words. Oh well.

After 700 rounds and about 200 dry fires, my original RTK trigger failed...

Within 4-5 days of notifying RTK I received a new one in the mail. That is fantastic service. The failed trigger has been returned to them for a post mortem, but it was made of standard 6061 aluminum and the new ones are made of stronger 7075 aluminum.

I just ordered one. The Solo stock trigger is uncomfortable -- it's just too tight a curvature.

Hi Warthogge- Was wondering if you remember what size nut driver was needed to remove that pesky tiny screw that hold the trigger spring. I can't seem to find anything to fit.that hex nut? How did you get it removed?
