New here...hi everyone

Wanted to say hi just signed up. First Kimber owner (just purchased a Raptor Pro) after trying a co-worker's at the range. WoW so used to my gen5 Glocks and finally got to feel the difference, like night and day. Was fun and easy doing mods to the Glocks but after after trying the Kimber it was interesting how something right out of the box could feel so good and smooth and a great shooter as well. If anything I would change is grips, that's it I promise. Now if I could find a way to unload the Glocks so the wife does not find out...J/K I got my eye on another already lol.

Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois FAULTBALL and congratulations on the new Raptor Pro. There's one upgrade I would suggest, Kimber recommends replacing the recoil spring at 800 rounds. When it's time to change the recoil spring upgrade to the Wilson Combat Flat Wire Spring kit. You'll eliminate the need for the "L" shaped tool to take the gun down and be good for 40,000 rounds.
