Kimber Wish List...in case the factory is spying on us

Kimber to my knowledge has never been a participant on a forum. But it would seem to be a wise business move to at least browse the forums to see what people like or dislike about their products. So, in the off chance KMI is "spying", what would you like to see produced, improved or modified etc direct from the factory?

I have a few but will start with this one for now. We have all been led to believe that KMI produces ALL the parts for their 1911s in house either final machining of forgings or through MIM process. Therefore there is really little reason why their mag guides/wells do not match or blend better with the frame. Or dont bevel the frames on the models you put mag guides on. Simple

Since they appear to have cornered the market on Meprolight sights, why not put them on every gun. I haven't met anyone who prefers an all black set of sights over one with night sights or at least white dot.

Include TWO magazines with each gun. They can't be that expensive to make.

For the price we pay for the Kimber brand, I would like to see a recoil spring that doesn't have to be replaced after a few months of range practice.
We all know they are available through Wilson and other manufacturers...
Also, maybe a different coating on the slides that will last longer..
I have a PC2 9mm that the slide looks like it has ten years of service and it's only 2 years old..

I agree with ya Gator..
Add $20 to the cost of the firearm and save me the trouble of ordering another online or driving to the lgs to buy one..
Keep the cable lock and send an extra mag please...

Feds and lawyers require the cable lock, but I agree, Jeff.

Night sights or a fiber optic front sight.
