The family is complete (at least for now) The newest addition is my Pro Raptor I picked up earlier today.

Warning, Take special care not to move then flat spring in the frame when replacing the backstrap. Let me tell you, this was a headache and a half to figure out. On all of Kimbers I replace the backstrap with an arched backstrap and tactical magwell, they feel better to me. Well, I got my new Raptor and replaced the backstap as usual, assembled and called it good. About an hour later I load up my mags and notice my hammer swings freely, WTF??? So, I take it all down and start to diagnose the problem, I screw with spring and safeties over and over, take the slide off and then can't get it back on. I disassemble and work on it some more, now I can get the slide on, but not off. WTFA??? After about an hour or so of assembling, disassembling, moving springs and safeties in and out. Finally, fixed, I did a full safety and function check, good to go.

Have a laugh on me today!!!

The family is complete as I said earlier, CDP Ultra II, Pro Raptor, Full size Tactical.
