    Which extractor did Kimber have issues with, internal or external?

    How can one spot the difference if looking at a gun?

    "You can buy a Kimber external extractor "kit" from kimberparts.com. Or, you could call Dennis at Kimber and ask for him to send you one if you don't want to spend any money."

    "I just spoke w/ Kimber again about ordering a spare extractor kit and then got into a general discussion about internal vs external extractors. They said that now Kimber has gone back to the internal extractor and I could send them my slide assembly and they would replace the entire slide w/ an internal extractor style. No charge (just S&H)...cool! I can't think of a reason not to take them up on it.

    Apparently they designed the external extractor for the California market. The extractor does have a red indicator that sort of shows if a round is in the chamber. That apparently was a requirement of the gun kooks out there. After all was said and done they wouldn't approve the external extractor design so Kimber went back to the old design.

    I guess thats the old "give them an inch..." thing."


    Cali fucking shit up as usual!

    take a picture of your slide from the right side, and we can tell you very easily. Also, series 2= Series 80 1911. read a bit about the difference of a Series 70 and a series 80. Series 80's are not very highly regarded.

    Also, Shwartz safety System FTL. Open up the slide, hold it upside down and look for the button, then do google it.

    If you can, I'd see if you can find a nice Series 1 Kimber, or a Series 70 1911. It's just not worth the trouble especially at how much you spent to work on that 1911, which I think is a little too much for just a Series 2 stainless Kimber.

    it's okay for a starter 1911, but I don't think that is what you were hoping for spending that much money on it.

    I hate to sound like I'm raining on your parade, and I hope you can find something helpful from this.

    Jesus Christ, he just bought it and all of you are jumping his shit about FTE/FTX, when he hasn't even fired it yet :rofl:

    Just shoot the motherfucker, man, enjoy it, if it needs fixing, fix it AFTER it breaks, not before.
