I just traded a Glock 32 and some cash for a brand new Kimber Desert Warrior. I only had enough time to shoot 50 rounds through it, but I did not have any problems. I would like to know if anyone has had problems with their Kimber Desert Warrior. Thanks in advance.

I have one, I like it a lot. It didnt start out as love though. It had to go back to Kimber for a fail to feed. They Reamed the chamber, polished the feed ramp , polished the breech face, tuned the extractor and tuned the slide stop... It runs like a sewing machine now and I cannot say enough good things about Kimber. You will love your new weapon! Wheres your pictures?

I have to agree. BUT I haven't seen one in person yet. If I find one and I take a like'n to it I might have to bring it home.

Got mine today. Added a M6X. VERY nice.

eta: $1100 at a gun show. Shoots good. The M6X works very well. adds a little weight so follow ups are decent. Shoots much better than I do of course. Finding a holster is going to be a bear with the light though. The M6X is a bit larger than the M6. I have a holster coming from blade tech (without light) for now. A pouch for the M6X would be nice for evening carry. Any ideas folks

What is a good price for one of these ?

I would love one -
Back when I was in the corps the MC armorers still put our together.

These are supposed to be AWESOME......

Check out AJC Sport Shop. That's where I got mine, and they've got the best prices I've seen (listed on their site).

I got mine for $999 and havn't had any problems with it yet!!!

Got the regular Warrior. There is more black {think: asphalt jungle} where I live than sand, or dusty colors.

TLE RL II with a paint job? I started out not liking them but they're growing on me fast.
Link Posted: 2/11/2006 4:08:42 PM EDT
The shop close by my office has one and I have to admit, it's growing on me.

For those guys that have had them for awhile now, do you regret getting them? Do you wish you got a regular Warrior instead?

What did you guys pay? I am going to check tommorrow at a local shop for one and I dont want to get ripped.
Link Posted: 2/15/2006 6:42:05 AM EDT
$1025 was the best internet deal I've found. Had a local FFL bring it in for me for $15. I've seen a few here who've done a bit better, but I think I did okay. Locally they were $1200.

i had to jump on this bandwagon, that dang pistola is too good lookin' to pass up
so i pulled out the plastic and grabbed one up this morning. looks like i'll be eating
wish sandwiches for a while but i had to get a desert warrior while there was one on the
shelf at the local gunshop. hope the weather is great tomorrow so i can punch some paper.
i'll post some pic's later this week.

oooops! image is too big, but here it is.

I just got mine a few days ago, fun to shoot. Pics Later.
Link Posted: 3/1/2006 5:43:19 AM EDT
These look great!
My question is, are the lower frames
polymer/plastic? I don't care if they
are. The light mount grooves look
cast/molded. I'm just curious...

that make it look that way in
the pics.
Later!

I have a regular Warrior. Got it as soon as they came out, never had one problem shooting Remington 230 and Winchester 230 ball. I only have about 350 rounds though it since I have been shooting other recent projects. Shot it today during lunch and shot a nice little ¾” (center to center) 5 shot group at 10 yards with WWB 230gr.

Original Warrior in black. It's a night thang!

FWIW,

I have a G17 set-up w/ M6 light I tote in a Safariland 6004 gunbucket, and with a tad of tension adjustment on the 6004 my Warrior w/M6 rides just as well in the same bucket as the Glock 17. Go figure--!
