Ultra Carry Flat Wire

I was looking at my Kimber Facebook page this morning and noticed that one of the members posted that he just bought a FW for his UCII and I had a chat with him and found out where he bought it from...

It's a company called EGW Gun Parts and they're located in Quakertown, PA....I called them since I didn't see it on their website and talked to a guy named Cody who told me they do make it for the UC along with other 3" pistols...

The one's that they are selling have a closed end that will go into the plug and the cut end towards the guide rod...He also told me that in 5-6 weeks they will have the part with both ends of the springs closed and it will sell for $59.99...

With this FW conversion comes the spring, guide rod and new plug so the inner spring that comes on the UC guide rod won't be needed and the FW will last 10K and be around 20-22lb..

The picture is one that they make for a Rock Island and if you want to order one for your UCII, call Cody or Jim @ 215-538-1012.

The great thing about this news is that those would be lifetime springs for me because with so many guns to shoot I will be dead before I get 10,000 rounds through all of my Ultras.

I about screamed when I saw it this morning and didn't want to post until I talked to the company selling them...

I'm waiting to order one until I hear back from the member on the Kimber FB page since he is going to the range with his on Saturday...

Here are the pics that he posted on FB with the FW spring conversion kit...

One thing that I noticed was the plug looks black...It won't matter to me since my UC Raptor is black, but if you have a stainless model it will certainly be different...

I will ask if they make a stainless plug when I call to order...

Good work, looks like a winner. Same take down and install as the 4". I'll get one for my Ultra after others have tested it some.
