Im thinking big on my new Stainless II

Ok, Im thinking of bullet proofing my new Stainless II with all Wilson Combat Bullet Proof internals.

Minus the Barrel cause I'll never shoot enough in a life to need a new barrel.

Poss a few other exceptions. Any thought or help from someone who has done the like I'm listening.

OK, I have to ask why, are the stock factory parts malfunctioning? Please don't tell me you drank the MIM parts koolaid.

Should be an interesting experiment...
I will keep my Boyz all original since that's the way I bought them and they haven't failed me yet...
If it ain't broke...I ain't fixing it...
Good luck and keep us informed and we love pics...

Though I hate Kimber uses MiM parts, all I own is Kimber. Go figure!!

I just want to for the ideal of owing the perfect 1911. Well machined Kimber frame and barrel.

And the ultimate in 1911 internals. Wilson Combat. This will be a no excuses perfect 1911.

I have owned Kimbers since 2002. I currently have I think 10 but have had more on and off and see a lot at my work for inspections etc. I have never seen or had a part break. I can get fine triggers to 3.5. Anything less than that and I would change internals too but a clean 4 pound trigger is all I need. I have done some work on others and the last half dozen Colts and Springers have been built with Harrison Design ignition parts and the other stuff is EGW.

Good luck.

doing research I found Wilson Combat will do the work for me. Ill call them tomorrow and ask some questions.

Good thing I saved some coin on this one, cause I see some of my dollar bills becoming property of Wilson Combat.

More to come!

Sorry I thought you were doing the work yourself.

You might consider Springfield Armory Custom shop. You can send them the gun and your parts for fitting and install. They work on Kimbers to and are known for excellent work in a reasonable return time. They have a price list on their site.

I just noticed you are in AZ too. There are some good 1911 guys here too. But unless you need a -3# trigger I still don't understand the need to dump all the parts. I would buy ammo!

Good luck
