Let's Try Building The Perfect Kimber ... For You

We're all Kimber fans but we all know as good as Kimber is they haven't yet built your perfect gun. Now's your chance to build that gun, follow my guidelines closely. You can only use any model gun Kimber offers on their website or in their cataloug and you can use any options that they offer on any other model. In other words combine any gun with any option to make your perfect gun.

Chuck to me the Super Carry Pro is the perfect Kimber. I would like to see a SCPHD finished exactly like the SCP. Also a Stainless Raptor II with a MSH that matches the front strap like the SCP matches. Add a carry melt and that would make the perfect Raptor.

Paint the frame on the Stainless Micro Raptor Satin Silver add carry melt and you got the perfect Micro 380 or Micro 9.

I'm pretty easy to please. An ultra tactical ll with a carry melt. Now if I could get something custom done by Kimber it would be checkering on the front of the trigger guard.

My ideal carry gun would be the Ultra Tactical. It would have the Turnbull charcoal finish, 24 LPI checkering on front strap, trigger guard and main spring housing from the CCP. Cocking shoulder rear sight from the Super Carry line. High cut under trigger guard and premium aluminum match grade trigger from the Classic Carry Elite. To complete the gun I get a pair of black and Silver smooth stipple/scallop grips from the Kimber shop.

I know that the rules said what Kimber makes and would make is what I added also but there are after market MSHs that look similar to the raptor engraving. I replace all of my main spring housings with metal and this one for my stainless ultra matches pretty well to the other Raptor cuts..

Before shipping to the dealers: take all the Solos off the shelves and ream and polish the chambers and feed ramp, adjust extractor, replace slide stop and spring, replace recoil spring, test fire 10 - 8 round mags and 10 - 6 round mags with recommended premium ammo then clean, lube and repeat if nessesary. If all is good then include in the box a prepaid shipping label with an RMA number just in case. Oh, and a lifetime warrantee would be nice. Now that would be cool. I'd buy another one.
Not bashin, Marshall, just suggesting. I know you're watching.
