I've had the warrior now for about 2 months and have put at least 500 rds through the gun and had maybe one (maybe none) FTF with assorted 185 & 200gr LSWC's with charge weights varying from 4.5 to 5.0 grs of Bullseye. No Problems. Maybe I have to start shooting 230gr hardball and see if I get a FTF?
Also, I need to make a couple minor changes to make it perfect. 1) have Ed Brown install a Memory groove Grip safety 2) have either Ed Brown or Kimber put some checkering on the frt strap and install a Mag well.
Questions will arise as to why I didn't get a TLEII RL because that gun has the checkering but I don't like that one because I absolutely hate the meprolight sights that they put on those guns. The Novaks or imitation Novaks on the Warrior are exactly the style I want.
Question: I plan on having Ed do the strap and beavertail and have Kimber refinish the gun. Has anyone had Ed do checkering on their gun? Impressions of his work?
I actually had a somewhat negative experience with the Kimber custom shop as I had my Tac Custom II fitted with an Ed Brown safety and got it back with a ding in the corner of my magwell. Not bad enough to make me send it back, but it does tell me they were not terribly careful with my gun. It also made me question whether Ed Brown would have possibly fitted the safety BETTER than possibly Kimber did (since it's their safety)
