New Kimber 1911 Warrior owner - need advise plse

Hello All,

I would like to purchase a good holster for this new 5" 1911 that I just got. Any suggestions?

Also, what exactly should I order for additional magazines? Should I stick with Kimber or are there any other's out there at are comparable for performance?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

I've had great luck with the Kimber KimPro Tac-Mag, I have 20+ and never had a problem with one of them.

Many of us have tried Joes1911mags and you can't tell the difference between them and factory mags...

Any quality holster for a 5" railed 1911 will be fine, your preference leather or kydex.
As far as mags go, lots of choices, Kimber Tac mags are good and allow for a flush fit if you want, could be important if you plan on conceal carry. Both my Warriors have Ed Brown magwell's so I only use extended mags with large base pads. I use the eight round Tripp cobra mags in mine.

Wink My 2 Cents Worth!!

I have had great luck with Kimber magazines. My substitute standard is the Chip McCormick Shooting Star mags. They also have been good to me over the years.

I covered the holster thing in introduction sub-forum. Check there for witty enlightenment!!!

Congrats and enjoy your Warrior. Be safe!!
