No.  You can send it back to Kimber for custom shop work and refinish... or do as I and others have, add skateboard deck tape to the front strap... I prefer it over my TLE II with factory checkering.

BTW, not trying to sound like a dick, but this is a pic thread, please ask questions in the forum instead of here.

Finest pistol I've owned, Kimber Warrior II. The original grips look bad ass, but I got nasty blisters consistently on my hands.  What a pussy. Put a new trigger and rosewood on her.

Sold my Warrior about a year ago before it continued to have more problems:

Runs great. One of the best 1911's out there in my opinion!

I picked mine up thursday and have yet to shoot it. Hope it runs like my other kimbers. I had originally wanted the regular warrior but now i guess i can color coordinate my setups.

If you guys want to make recommendations, I'd appreciate it as this is my first 1911 and I don't know much about the platform other than it is a 100 year old design that people still trust. Without further delay, pictures!



lol, I'm actually in the exact same boat. Just bought a new Warrior for $900 yesterday, my first 1911. Any suggestions for stuff to do with it would be welcome.


Question: Are those OE looking grips aftermarket or was elbow grease involved to make them look that way? I like the color contrast and would like to keep the grips my warrior will be coming with.

Sweet 45! Who makes those grips?

Bone Stock.

Will eventually add a magwell and possibly change the grips.

Here is the new Desert Warrior.  First time to the range.  50 rounds.  Flawless.  This gun is tight like a custom.  Accurate.

Am I the only person who installed an arched mainspring housing on my Desert Warrior? And I saw only one magazine well funnel. A worthwhile addition for sure.
