Pro Carry Grip Screw

Wanted to try some different grips on my pro carry, now I just need to know if someone can tell me what the heck the screw type in the grips are. Are they hex, torx, or what? Before I strip the heads off, just thought Id ask. Thanks

The screws on my Ultra II are hex head. I would assume they pretty much stuck with the same screw setup across the board. A quick look at the pictures on the corporate web site would seem to verify that.

Well I got the news from my GS. Its actually torx, T10 to be exact. After getting the grips off I discovered that the sleeves and screws are fixed to the grip, so Im off to my GS to have him walk me through taking them out so I can use them with my new grips. What a pain, but at least Ill know what the procedure is for future exchanges

Strange, I just doubled checked to be sure and the screws in my Super Carry Pro are 3/32 hex, you would think they'd use the same screws in all their models.

I certainly thought they would. Guess it's a matter of, "when the screw fits"!

If I had to guess, Id guess that Torx replaced hex. My pro carry is 2013. Or could be as simple as whats available, or price

It sounds like the threaded bushings ("sleeves") unthreaded instead of the screws. The screws should come off followed by the grip. The bushings are supposed to stay affixed to the frame of the gun.

I had one bushing out of four do that and applied blue loctite to it when it went back in.

Thats what I did. All the bushings were stuck in the grips. Once out, I dabbed a little locktite on the and screwed them back in the frame, then all was good. Being my first Kimber, I wasn't sure how the grips were fixed. The last thing I wanted to do is force a part when not absolutely sure of fitment.
