Kimber Desert Warrior TFS

Just ordered one, I get on tuesday. I was wondering if anybody has had experience with one, they are beautiful pieces. And was wondering how the higher sights will affect accuracy from what I can tell they are not that much higher. This is kimber #6...lol all 1911's

Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois, the height of the sights shouldn't effect accuracy of the gun. How about visiting our "New Member Introduction" sub forum and introducing yourself to the membership?

Welcome from Northern Illinois. I don't have one but wouldn't mind one, just can't have a silencer in Illinois, so the value would be wasted on me.

Pics of your new gun would be appreciated.

Welcome to the site from Tennessee. IMO the sights ARE pretty tall compared to combat sights. I have been looking at and thinking about buying a Warrior SOC TFS but have not pulled the trigger on buying yet. I do want to get a Kimber with threaded barrel but have not decided which one it will be.

EDIT: Got a good deal (less than half the price of Warrior SOC TFS) and bought the TLE PRO TFS. Sights are tall but not a problem.
