2 Kimbers in the house

Just found a Ultra Raptor II. Unfortunately it is used as no new ones to be found. Some holster wear on the front of the slide and wear on the railings due to use. Slide tight, trigger like new, no problem feeding all kinds of HP by racking the slide. Next up is a function firing. Broke it down for a cleaning as it was pretty dirty.

I like it though, $995 vs $1295.

P.S. Called local Cerekote dealer and if I tear down, they will do slide and frame for $196. Think that trip is happening pretty soon. If it turns out well, the Ultra Crimson Carry II is going in as I really don't like two tone guns.

Yea, not bad for a used gun. But, in a little while it will be good as new. Just a little refurbishment.

I miss read this earlier I thought you where adding crimson grips to this. That's why I offered to buy your old grips. I apologize. If that was mine I would put it in the holster and use and enjoy it. I purchased mine new and already have marks on it. Yours looks fine e to me. My ultra Raptor is my favorite Kimber.

Is no problem. But, at the price quoted for the cerekote, I think it would be good to do that. Besides, like I said the other one is next up if I like the coating.

I had a frame changed from tan to green with the cerakote and was very pleased with the outcome. I am sure it will look great when your done, please post before and after photos if you end up doing it.

Wink Way To Go!!

Nice snag there!! I like all things RAPTOR!!! Sounds like you found a deal. A bit of wear on a used pistol is not a bad thing. It could be that someone was just nice enough to break it in for you. If it shoots well and functions positively, you just saved the cost of 500 rounds of FMJ hardball to break your pistol in!!!

Shoot the hell out of it and then let us know how she shoots. Looking forward to it. Enjoy your new toy!!! Keep us up to date.

So, when you had that done, did any of the tolerances change and create problems? Did you have the internals done also?

I just had the frame done and I haven't had any problems with it at all. Here's a couple pictures

Nice job. How many rounds through it since you had it coated?
