New Kimber Crimson Carry II

So excited about my purchase. I cleaned my new kimber and am waiting for a nice day at the range. I wanted to remove the sticker for the laser (thi warning sticker. 1. It's very hard to get off. 2. Lots of residue left on the barrel.

Anything specially for guna I could use? Or anything you've used in the past.


Just concerned b4 I go and use something and it damages the finish!

Eh, I left mine on. For me, the UC2 was a "carry only" pistol, you know, for motorcycle rides, safely buying a Subway sandwich, and going to my cousins' weddings and parole hearings.

I figured in time the stickers would fall off, or wear off or keep some errant scratch from marring the pistol. I kept the "remove by owner only" sticker on the tank of my "48" and it kept the edges of my jacket from spoiling the finish.

If pulling the sticker off leaves adhesive, just use your normal gun cleaning solvent and rub with a rag. Hope you enjoy your CCCII.

Yeah, I would think some Hoppes#9 would take off glue and not harm your pistol.

Does it really bother you guys that much? This is a carry gun, and it will probably see holster wear, sweat, scratches and dings only to be shoved into a prima facie evidence bag as it's confiscated.

In a modern world that spends so much on "branding" and status, does the little sticker mean that much?

I hate stickers on anything, one of the first things I do is remove them.
