Sometimes they make one just Right or so it seems to me this time!!

My first handling of my new Ultra Raptor II was tentative! It was easy on the eyes and somewhat Stout but short in the grip department . Racking the slide seemed overly compressed and heavy ! I had read various posts of having to break things in with 2,3, 500 rounds of 230 gr FMJ because the tolerances were so tight etc . I wanted a pistol that would wear well and shoot well for EDC . I have bought and sold and re bought numerous pistols to try and find a good mix of characteristics that fit me regarding weight ,capacity ,caliber ,size and reliability . You guys know the drill ! This weapon is so fun to shoot ,accurate and so far reliable. The heavier recoil spring seems to tame the recoil and keep follow up shots right on target . The sights are easy to acquire although smaller than what I am accustomed too i.e. Big dots ! I just can't wait to get enough rounds down range {400-500} so i can make it my EDC !

Again, congratulations on the new Ultra Raptor II, that heavy recoil spring will lighten up a little bit as you get the gun broken in but it's needed to help control that smaller lighter slide.

No they made at least Two Right!

Only 250 rounds so far but mine has been 100% perfect. And looks badass.
My bad, one with target is CDP Ultra but it has also been 100% perfect.

May as well make it at least Three Ultra's that are Right

Third Ultra done right by Kimber. Sapphire Ultra.

On my next Kimber I really need to try and buy something besides an Ultra model?

I guess it is not to bad for an old guy that can't see as well as he used to.

Good to hear! Raptors are my favorite a kimber in the 'looks' department. I'll probably have one someday.
