Congrats!
The Raptor is one of the best looking guns Kimber makes.
Glocks were awesome in the 1990s if you were a cop.
They were lighter than a 3rd generation steel Smith and Wesson and almost as reliable.
Trigger was terrible and had a grip.modled after a 2x4.

A 1911 is the Lord's sidearm.

NOPE! I've never changed ANY of the MSH because they are plastic. I've never been bothered by that fact. I have a few Kimber's that the previous owner changed the housing but the only one I remember that has been changed for sure is my Raptor Ultra. I know might be more but it's a NO ISSUE for me.
However if I was inclined to change the MSH Ed Brown parts would be a top contender.

WHAT THE HECK IS A flat chain link replacement
MSH= Main Spring Housing
Chain Link= Style of tooling on a stainless steel Ed Brown firearms MSH instead of the factory Kimber "plastic" MSH.

RIA makes a 911 style pistol in 10 mm called the tac ultra. Nice weapon got it a few years back & yes all 10'1 got a kick but the RIA is no beast by any means. I am sure the Kimber is nice yet you can buy two RIA's for the price of one Kimber. Is the Kimber better? Yes I would say. At twice the price? Nay!

Matches the slide & frame perfectly
Paul, I have a Fusion Chain link msh. It was on my Raptor 5鈥. It did look good but for me it didn鈥檛 offer enough grip. I switched it out with a Nighthawk that was checkered and it was much better for shooting and comfort. Obviously this is my opinion and you might love it. I just wanted to give you some feedback before you spend your money on new one.

1911s are addicting. you will find if you keep looking that you got a good deal on you raptor and there are many 1911s that are very nice that will cost an arm and a leg. My first was a TLE, then Pro Carry then solo then a Dan Wesson, then a Les Baer, add a couple of Tisas 1911s and im still looking.

I ordered the Ed Brown flat chain link. Will let you know my opinion once I get it installed. I have no issues with grip with everything being stock. More for aesthetics ,Thanks for your input.
