Wink To Modify or Not?

What, if any, modifications have you made to your Kimber?

I have added a Crimson Trace Laser Grip to my Custom Stainless II and finely adjusted the overtravel stop on the trigger. That is it. It has a fantastic trigger right out of the box. No creep, no grit, just a glass breaking smooth 4 lb let off with no overtravel. In other words, absolute perfection!!!

What have you done?

I am going to put night sights on my CCCII. The all black sights are tough on my old eyes and it's harder to acquire the front sight. I don't shoot with the laser. I find it distracting, but it would be cool in a low-light situation. I suppose replacing the mags doesn't count as a mod. Other than that, I have no plans to mess with it. I'm with you, I like it just the way it is.

On my Super Carry Pro I installed a WC Stainless Extended Slide Release, WC Flat-Wire Recoil Spring Kit and a set of Raasco grips.

I changed grips on mine just to personalize it. Don't plan to do anything else.

i was having issues with my old eyes., so i decided to try the high visibility sights with various colors. nite sights seem to difficult for me to pick up especially in dark ranges.
these sights from hiviz, tru-dot, dawson, etc are very easy to see and usually use a different color for the front sight.

anyway fyi, i was removing the rear sight from my cdp ultra and found out (the hard way) that the grip safety plunger spring is held in by the sight. where it went i have no idea.
the good news is that when i called kimber they sent a new spring at no charge. great customer service!

That's great info. Nothing like contributing on your first post.
