Remove the rear sight
Pardon my ignorance, but how exactly do you do this? I see a roll pin, but is it as simple as getting a hammer and punch, drive it down to the inside of the slide (after the firing pin and spring are removed first I assume) and then sliding off the rear sight? :confused:

That's not a roll pin, bit a tiny allen grub screw.....

Buy a standard firing pin. I like USGI M1911 firing pins. Remove the Kimber Series II firing pin. Insert the replacement pin. The firing pin interlock has no place to drop down into on this pin and the firing pin will never be locked out.

If you remove the Series II parts in the slide you have to remove the sight. Nothing is hurt by leaving these parts in the slide and frame and it makes warranty service easier as you can retrofit the Kimber firing pin before service.

I don't see any reason to do any of this, though. I've done it. I've gone back to the interlock.
