What, if any, modifications have you made to your Kimber?

I have added a Crimson Trace Laser Grip to my Custom Stainless II and finely adjusted the overtravel stop on the trigger. That is it. It has a fantastic trigger right out of the box. No creep, no grit, just a glass breaking smooth 4 lb let off with no overtravel. In other words, absolute perfection!!! :cool::cool:

What have you done?

I am going to put night sights on my CCCII. The all black sights are tough on my old eyes and it's harder to acquire the front sight. I don't shoot with the laser. I find it distracting, but it would be cool in a low-light situation. I suppose replacing the mags doesn't count as a mod. Other than that, I have no plans to mess with it. I'm with you, I like it just the way it is.

On my Super Carry Pro I installed a WC Stainless Extended Slide Release, WC Flat-Wire Recoil Spring Kit and a set of Raasco grips.

I changed grips on mine just to personalize it. Don't plan to do anything else.

i was having issues with my old eyes., so i decided to try the high visibility sights with various colors. nite sights seem to difficult for me to pick up especially in dark ranges.
these sights from hiviz, tru-dot, dawson, etc are very easy to see and usually use a different color for the front sight.

anyway fyi, i was removing the rear sight from my cdp ultra and found out (the hard way) that the grip safety plunger spring is held in by the sight. where it went i have no idea.
the good news is that when i called kimber they sent a new spring at no charge. great customer service!

That's great info. Nothing like contributing on your first post.

Mods on Pro Carry II

I don't like using the "paper clip" tool to hold the guide rod spring back so I'm considering doing a swap to a Wilson Combat guide rod, spring and bushing.

I also don't like the "idea" of a plastic (even though it works fine) main spring housing, so I'm considering putting in a machined MSH with a mag well. I like the look of the mag well too. And with that, I'd want the mag well cut grips.

And maybe Wilson Combat magazines just because they are supposed to be more reliable. (The one FTF out of 1000 rounds has me in a tizzy.)

I'm happy with it now, but I'm not opposed to being happier.:)

I put vz grips on my ss ultra raptor and thinking about swaping out the msh with an eb chainlink msh and that will be it
Yeah, there are a lot of mag well choices but the Ed Brown is the one I like. The chain link looks better than the checkering.

I do not like ambi safety's, or traditional beavertail grip safety, so I change em.
I also like thin grips.

(( NDZ Performance - Custom Billet Laser engraved accessories for firearms, auto and powersports )) sells a take down tool. I bought the short and long one together, I think they were $20.00. They are basically just a couple of plastic sleeves but they work great. Check the video's on YouTube. Unless you just want the Wilson guide rod.

So far the only change I have made to my Ultra CDPII has been to add a Crimson Trace Laser Grip in the Rosewood. Oh, also bought two Kimber Pro-Tac mags. Still working on my break in rounds...I hate cold weather.

If I was going to change mine that's what I would buy! Looks more expensive than it is.

The Wilson Combat Flat Wire Spring Kit eliminates the need for any kind of tool to take your gun down. The NDZ tool is simply replacing a cheap tool with an expensive one.
