Chuck is correct; they just refinished the slide on my Super Carry Ultra + a few months ago. Turned out perfect, cost for the refinishing work was $110; worth every penny, as now the gun looks brand new.

Thanks guys, I installed a ambi Saftey...first time working on a 1911 and I used a screw driver and put some scratch marks on it. Super minor but OCD. It was the master carry pro.
How does it work. Send to them and they send back or they send back to a FFL

DOH (slapping forehead) "used screw driver and put some scratch marks on it."

I can't even talk about it and "that's all I have to say about that" (in my best Forrest Gump voice.)

Call Kimber's customer service and they will tell you how to do it. You can send it directly to them and they can send it back to you, no FFL involved.

I remember way back when Chuck pointed me in the direction of obtaining the proper tools to work on my Ultra. Forget who, but someone told me to just use a screwdriver.
The scratches you put on your gun was the exact reason I went with the right tools for the job.
Cheap enough insurance to avoid messing up my gun.
Plus I feel like a real gunsmith.

Wing nut....you are 100% correct. Stupid of me. While they are very minor, I know they are there, plus I want front strap checker also if I can so all the more reason.

I hear you. You might want to ask them about the price of front strap checkering. It takes deep pockets for that. I went with the tape and it’s worked pretty good for years.
