Reduced Power Mainspring

Yesterday I was able to get out and shoot the Custom II after the spring install. Possible light primer strikes -- No! Pistol ran thru 4 mags of 20yo reloads just fine. Trigger pull is lighter, and women think I am sexy.

Woman sometimes will say what you want to hear in order to further their agenda! If a male says you are sexy you can believe he means it. Of course you may not want to hear it from said male!

I don't know about that, but here's how it went.

"OMG!!! Is that a Kimber Custom II?",

"It sure is, and it has a reduced power mainspring!".

"Get out!!! You are one hot sexy man. Take me out back and pull my hair, and anything else you want to do to me."

Was that about the time you woke up from your nap?

Get a Reduced Power Mainspring and you'll see. The packaging warned of this effect on women, and it is true. Really...

See, see.... Mines from Wilson Combat, if that matters for the rest of you guys. As always, YMMV.
