I just picked up a copy of the Nov/Dec American Handgunner. Featured on the Cover is Kimber's DESERT WARRIOR. Missing is the much ballyhood external Extractor! I seem to remember much Discussion about how superior the external Extractor was to the old fashioned internal Extractor.

Wha' happened? Is Kimber admitting that the old fashioned, much maligned internal Extractor, as designed by JMB, is in Fact superior to their new-fangled exterior Extractor?

Cheaper?

Whenever a Manufacturer makes a Change in an established Design, I can tell you two Things. One for "Maybe," and one for certain!


1) Maybe it's an Improvement.

2) For certain, it costs less to manufacture!


I think that Kimber has answered the int/ext Debate. When it absolutely positively HAS to work, they revert to the Design which God and JMB gave us!

Much ado over nothing...

I have a Friend who has had to send his S&W 1911SC back three times to cure FTE problems. Somehow, I doubt that he's unique!
