Kimber Pistol

I'd take a hard look at one. My experience is that they are very good guns and aren't complicated by a FP safety system or an external extractor.

Strangely enough, my (pre series-II) Classic Custom .45 came with a "series 80" type firing ruger p 90 with the tell-tale relief cut. It is the original firing pin which came with the gun, from the factory. Possibly Kimber had run out of "series 70" firing pins and used whatever the vendor (McCormick, I believe) had available. Who knows?

I bought the gun as a "beater" and instructional tool. I got a decent deal on it ($500) from the original owner (friend and co-worker) who had shot about 500 rounds through it (200 gr SWC target ammo) before falling on hard times. I figured after the MIM started falling apart I'd rebuild it as a custom carry gun or work gun. Well, that was several thousand rounds of hardball and full-power RNL (and ever some ruger p 89 junk) and the gun is still ticking without any breakages. I've made a few minor changes to suit my kimber 1911 hand gun needs. The changes are



BAS Scopes

After zeroing, you may use the hex wrench supplied with your scope to remove the windage and elevation drums and then reposition
them so that the zero ( 0 ) lines up with the indicator line on the spindle. Any further windage or elevation
adjustments can be made more precisely by calculating the amount of clicks from the zero point the windage and elevation
drums have been moved.
BAS Scopes rheostat, located at the top of the eyebell, controls the degrees of illumination. To prevent accidental discharge in shipping,
a plastic insulator has been placed within the battery compartment. To remove the plastic insulator, unscrew the battery cover
and remove the plastic from both sides of the battery. Replace the battery, being careful to insert the battery positive ( + ) side
up. Replace the battery cover firmly to assure that it is water tight. The illumination feature is activated by depressing and
releasing the small button located beside the battery compartment. The button should be depressed until a click is felt. The
first click will be the illuminator s least bright setting.

This idea is good, I think it is very novel.
