:wavey:


I am thinking maybe against my better judgement of getting another kimber.
When they get tuned and work well they are a real pleasure to shoot.
I leaning towards a SIS model or one of the warriors what do you think would be a better choice? I want to stay away from the swartz safety this time.:dunno:

Does the SIS not have a FPS?

That is my understanding that the SIS and the warrior are the two kimbers that do not have the FPS.

I am not a big Kimber fan, but I have good things about the Warrior.

Between the two,......I'd choose the Warrior.
The SIS just seems tacky! :dunno:

I know they used to be pretty good. The latest production Warriors have seem to be very bad. Read the 10-8 forum. The top smiths and trainers now recommend folks avoid them.

I like the SIS Pro. The fullsize just doesn't do it for me. Can't stand the front slide serrations.

I have a VERY early production Desert Warrior (mine is OD green?). Its a remarkable pistol, and one of my all time favorite 1911's. Most of them I've seen are a kinda tan? dirt? color? Once I put in a Wilson Combat slide stop, and "cleaned" the KimPro finish off the feed ramp, its been 100% reliable. If I was buying a Kimber today, it would be SIS Pro. Yes the SIS serrations are hideous, but Kimber won't stop making them that way, until one day AFTER I buy one!:faint:

To simulate the feel of a SIS, rub your hands with vaseline then try to manipulate your gun.

The SIS just seems tacky! :dunno:Understatement! But you could always cover up the S I S slide with 6" of electrical tape.

Nice,........ I've wondered, could it be possible to tig weld slide serrations then
have them machined flat? Wonder if it would be worth the cost or would all
the heat build up trash the slide?

My warrior has been my favorite 1911, accurate and very reliable. It's a little older model, though.

The only thing the SIS is missing is a extra "SY".

I'll let folks read what the top guys are saying and let the folks make up their own minds about that.

My personal opinion; I don't buy Kimbers.

I have never had any problems with Kimbers.
I did, however, just sell my Custom II.

Bought a Les Baer Monolith :supergrin:

I like mine. Shoots great, but not less filing.

Of the two I would pick the Warrior as the sights on the SIS were way to tight to give a quick sight picture plus the finish on the SIS is to slick for handling. I wonder if the SIS Unit use the SIS 1911s' out of the box or take them somewhere else to make sure they can use them better?

I just picked up a SIS/RL last week and I absolutely love it, aside from the slide being a little slick...but what do I know it's my first 1911 definitely won't be my last though

I passed up the sis due to the engravings. thought about adding something to cover them up, but why buy a gun you are not happy looking at or racking. I loved the added weight.
