Excess oil wiped off, here it is before grips
and after grips
Those are the Crimson Trace grips the Kimber had worn for years; they'll need to be zeroed for their new home. And it'll be two-tone for a while, maybe forever; this is a carry piece so a bit of wear(ok, a LOT of wear) on the upper isn't exactly a big deal.
Parts used from the Kimber:
Complete upper(including the fiber-optic sights I added)
Sear & disconnector
Hammer, pin & spur
Recoil spring guide rod and plug(forgot to add this earlier)
Other parts used in the new frame:
GI grip safety
GI thumb safety
GI magazine release
Plunger tube & innards
All pins except the pin linking hammer & spur are new from the rebuild kit(stainless Officers)
New recoil spring
If possible I'll hit the range today(nice having a good indoor not too far away) and try it out. Very carefully.
