Got my Kimber Stainless II Long Slide in 45.

Upgrades coming…

Shoots good. Feels softer than my 5”. Finish is excellent. Fitment is good. First mag ran without a hiccup. Slide locked back on empty as it should.

I took my 5” to the auction house. Didn’t feel the need for it with a 6”. I heavily modified the 5”. I’ll do this one differently.

The 5” 45 Stainless II at the top, followed by my 9mm Rapide, followed by by 10mm Stainless II

Not sure what all I’ll do to this one. I did order another set of Southern Trapper “Battle Axe” grips. Magwell cut purple/blue dyed gator leather. I put that same set on my Dan Wesson. Really like them. I think the black was too plain. There were other colors but I like the color on stainless.

Those Southern Trapper grips are on a Black Friday special for $112. They are usually $149. If you want a set of leather grips, it’d be a good time to order. I might try elephant leather next.

That's an interesting site.

What it looks like now. What I did to it... Replaced the grips with the Southern Trapper "Battle Axe grips. Its blue dyed alligator leather bonded to hardwood. Installed new Klonimus checkered, stainless mainspring housing with integrated magwell, Mecgar mag with extended polymer follower for smoother operation and support all the way to the chamber and base plate extension.

That is a true BBQ gun. I'm impressed.
