I still would like the Warrior but I seriously can't stand rail on 1911s.

Do any of you folks know if Kimber has plans for non-railed Warriors?

not likely
its modeled after the the gun RECON gets and they have been adding a rail to their 1911s

my opinion

Maverick,

I am with you on this. If it is ever offered without the rail, I am all over it.

Find a used Series I and upgrade the sights. You'll only be spending about $700 - $800, compared to $1050 for a Warrior. I realize there are some subtle differences, like finish, but I'll give you an example. I picked up an old Custom Classic, put on some tritium A/0 24/7 tritium sights, a Wilson Bulletproof Extractor, a Wilson ejector, a GunRunners guide rod and Ed Brown spring plug, a Kings match bushing, and an Ed Brown beavertail. It's a much better gun than the Warrior, and it cost me about $900 after that gun and parts.

I concur, although my own taste is for Heinie's.

Me too, but I wanted to try something different, and the price was cheap. I'll probably switch to Heinies here soon.

No rail and no nutter butter grips and I'll take one, too.

No, it's not. It is a civilian version of the ICQB pistol issued to a USMC unit attached to USSOCOM.



+1 To say "modeled after" is correct, but it is MCSOCOM, DET 1 - a part of USSOCOM

hahaha thats great!! Wish I had the cash to buy multiple 1911s!!

I don't understand paying 1K for a 1911 without front strap checkerring, stipling, nothing. seems to me that price is in the cusom zone.
