Question Competing with Pro Raptor II Single Stack Division

Decided I'm going to compete if I can get some sponsors.

My raptor is setup and sorted for how I speed shoot on my property but for competition and reading the rulebook last night it looks like I cannot do the barrel porting I was intending.

So at this point I just ordered a new Kimber brand magwell and grips to match. I draw and shoot 6rds on 3 targets in well under 1.8sec already so I should have an ok starting point just need to really work on reloads.

That said the last thing to complete this setup is I want to swap out the front sight to a red fiber optic. It shoots poa-poi exactly how I want with the oems sights so I want the exact same height.

Im happy w the rear, and considering other guns I have use them id like to keep the same and only swap out the front.

Thoughts?

Sounds like you're headed in the right direction. Compete with it for a while and figure out what/if you need to do anything more.

TruGlo and possibly Ameriglo have red fiber for Kimbers.

Another vote for Dawson Precision. I have put many on a gun with zero issues and they have great support if you have issues.
