It is beautiful ! But I've been thinking about the Stainless Raptor II not the pro. I would have to change the MSH to match the front of the grip, that's my only beef about the gun that and the price because you could probably get more bang for your buck with a Springfield loaded stainless, might not be as purdy as the raptor but probably as I said more bang for your buck. Did I just open another can of worms with my big mouth and stupid ideas I'm looking to get a new full size 45 and the Stainless Raptor II is high on the list or maybe even a Springfield Stainless TRP or Springfield Stainless Loaded.

I think you should do a full blown Custom Stainless Raptor II versus Springfield Stainless Loaded, specs and photos.

That should keep you off the streets for a few minutes.

Mine is blued but that stainless is gorgeous indeed!!! I agree with the thought about the MSH... I got mine used and the original owner had sold the stock grips. I have since changed them out a couple of times, settling on Derwood MFG Riots for it since it is a competition gun. I would love to get my hands on a set of stock grips though. Hmm, I think I'm gonna go tell the wife that I am buying a set of Raptor grips. She knows I've been looking, I just wont tell her they are coming attached to a new Raptor. Whatcha think guys, good idea?

Depends on how this goes, but I'm gonna go ahead and say 'it's been nice knowing ya'! LOL

Don, that's an excellent idea. If she doesn't ask, the burden is on her, not you.

Why yes, yes it is... The Raptor is my favorite of all the Kimber models. I have every Raptor model but 2, the Grand Raptor and the Micro Raptor in Black. I'm sure you will enjoy yours.
