This Like-New Full-Size 1911 was originally purchased by myself new in June this year, has not had any rounds fired through it (aka: "Safe Queen"), and is complete with the all original parts and accessories (EXCEPT for the original mainspring housing; see NOTE: below). I am selling this Kimber 1911 Stainless Raptor II as a bundle to come with all of the following:

( 1 ) new Kimber Full Size 9mm Match Grade Threaded Stainless Steel Barrel w/ Link & Thread Protector (SKU 4000006)
( 1 ) new Kimber Stainless Steel Flat Mainspring Housing w/ Magazine Well & 20-LPI Checkering (SKU 1100000A) {Installed}

( 4 ) new Nighthawk Custom Government 1911 10 round 9mm Magazines w/ Base Pads (SKU MG0039)

( 1 ) new Kimber PVC Patch

- The original 8 round 9mm magazine, all original documentation, accessories, and hard case are all also included.

NOTE: There are ( 3 ) areas that have cosmetic scratches on the slide, and one of the Nighthawk mags did not have any text on it (see pictures). Also, the original Mainspring Housing is not included because it was misplaced during our PCS Move (Aaargh...!) See the official Kimber America website for further information on this 1911 Raptor II:

I am parting ways with this awesome handgun and gear to make room for larger caliber pieces. My asking price for everything is $1500 $1300, to include shipping from my FFL here in GA to your FFL anywhere in the U.S. (no overseas). Method of payments are PayPal, U.S. Money Order, or certified bank draft/cashier's check (no trades please). Let me know if there are any questions or concerns, as I can be reached via PM or in this posting. Many more pictures are available and more pictures can be posted as requested, so please let me know what I can do to assure you are confident in your purchase. Thank you for looking, have a great weekend, and stay safe out there.

OK, last group. If you need more, just let me know. NOTICE: I focused in on the scratches for better clarity. THX!

HA! Good to go in regards to the "idiot scratch". The LGS did this to it right before the sale, which knocked the new sale price down to $1300 for me this past June.

Hated the fact that it doesn't even have a round fired through it and it shows scratches from the LGS showing me the differences between a Kimber Custom II and a regular Series 70 1911. The Sales Manager took off the $200 because the Sales Rep damaged this Raptor II and (apparently) a couple of other 1911's in the shop.

I would try to buff them out, but I don't want to make things worse (plus, I wish to be up front with everything on this pistol).

Excellent pics.

Arland would probably snap that up if it weren't for the idiot scratch (standard term for the scratch, not the person).
Exactly what I was thinking.
If I wasn't ready to pounce on a SA35 soon when one is found, I'd have this one on the way. On stainless, that idiot scratch would not be an issue to remove.
Nice bundle, fair price. Shouldn't last long.

Idiot scratch and the two notches on the other side. How they happen?
Either one, I’d get them ironed out no problem. Wish I had the money.

I had my two other Kimber 1911's "stacked" on top of this one trying to set up my photo shot of them next to each other and they slipped/fell over, resulting in the two scratches on the right side under the serial number.

Google and YouTube "surfing" now for best ways to buff out/remove light surface scratches from stainless steel...

I’d be careful and/or sell as is. I resurfaced my Ss Raptor pro and it is tedious to get it right.
They look deep btw.

Noted...

Some of the "How-To's" do not leave a pretty final product. Will leave as is, and let the potential Buyer perform (or not perform) the buffing/smoothing.

It is wisdom, feedback, and good opinions from fellow forum members that I greatly appreciate. Bravo Zulu!

UPDATE:

Price Drop down from $1500 to $1300 for the complete bundle all together w/ shipping. This is only due to the scratches on the frame (see pics and previous forum traffic above).

Let me know if there are any questions, comments, or concerns via this post or by PM. Thanks to all for looking and for forum contributions. Stock Up & Stay Safe!

A few extra pics of the frame to help out. Decided against trying to smooth them out for fear of making things appear worse. Thanks for looking!

Alright, just got back in from PT (sorry for the wait). Left the Raptor II with our Unit Armorer this morning and explained the situation (scratches on frame, not wanting major work done, no damage to anything else, etc.). He's a fellow Gunny, and he is an awesome gunsmith as well off base. I'll quickly upload what he was able to do in the roughly 10 mins he had before he had to go "choke someone"...
