Mainspring for Kimber Classic Carry Pro

Hi, my Kimber Classic Carry Pro has the round butt mainspring housing, does it still take the 23 lbs mainspring like other commander models?
Thanks
Leon

It should be, but look on page 7 of your manual where it should be listed.

Thanks, but unfortunately that information is no longer on page 7 or anywhere else in the manual, instead there is only this:

Thanks, I probably will, just seems silly for a gun that is so straightforward to disassemble down to basic parts to have to ship it to the manufacturer to change a couple of springs that I could do in 5 min. Sig classic pistols are a pain to disassemble, so there it is somewhat legitimate, though I wouldn’t ship those either, but a 1911, that just seems like CYA exercise by Kimber.

You don't have to ship it to them. I meant to call them and verify the spring weight. They can also send you what you need and then you can install it yourself. It's quite an easy installation, but you already probably realize that.

Good luck and welcome to KT.

I realize that, was referring to the manual. Appreciate the welcome.

Whenever I feel the urge to replace springs, I go straight to Wolff. Their web page lists more springs than you can shake a jammed Solo at. www.gunsprings.com
