As you stated, I also must remain aware of my grip. I...

I'm not sure about that Matte Black. IMO, it looks "Raw" for an expensive Kimber. I'm also noticing more Contrasting lettering, Color filling, etc. being used by the manufacturers as of late.

I might caution against lapping compound. It seems it's easy to apply, but a bugger to remove completely. IMO, as I previously stated, I would lubricate and cycle the gun for a few hundred rounds....

I own a 992 also. It is a tack driver, very nicely finished, and has a very crisp S/A trigger break. D/A is brutal, but a good workout for trigger practice.
