Thoughts From Ultra Raptor Owners

I'm considering an Ultra Raptor 9mm. Before I pull the trigger I'd appreciate the feedback from anyone that owns one and how you feel it compares to other 1911's you own.

I just sold mine to another KT forum member. It was a fine 1911, I never had an issues with it and shot it enough to know. I'd say those with larger hands may appreciate it more as the grips are fuller than many other guns I've handled.

I agree with AZ. I also have a 9mm Ultra Raptor and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a Ultra sized 9mm. Never had a failure an will eat anything you feed it.

I bought AZGuys's Raptor just this past Saturday. Been looking at the pictures and dreamin about shooting it while it makes its way in an Easterly direction to my FFL.

Have to say, they are one of the nicest looking pistols I've ever seen and am so glad I got up early Saturday morning 😎

Steve C, my Ultra Raptor is .45 so this might not count. The Raptor line is one of the best looking and possibly one of the most popular model lines that Kimber makes. I own several Kimber Ultra's that are 9mm so I don't really need another one but if I did I would not hesitate to purchase a Ultra Raptor 9mm. You will be glad you did just be aware it won't be your last.

I have a ultra stainless raptor in 45 acp, and a ultra cdp in 9mm. Either way you can't go wrong. Like previously posted, beware they're addictive!
