Just got my Kimber II back......

from having minor work done to it. I got the pistol barley used in excellent condition. I figured that I was going to end up carrying her, So I swapped out the sights for some Tru Glo Tritium sight front and rear. I also decided to get here Cerakoted too. Here are some before and after shots. I'm going to replace the grips with some Amboyna burl ones.

Before


After











Cheers
Ron

Where did you get the recoil spring plug? My Coonan has a similar one (same, perhaps?) and I haven't seen others like it. I'm pretty sure Coonan doesn't make them, they simply get them from somewhere, but I do like it. Maybe because it's a bit different, but not "LOOK AT ME!" different.

Haha, actually, you don't have a lot of occasion to look at a handgun from THAT angle all too often. I hope, anyway. But I like it. Someone selling those?

VZ grips look phenomenal, but I don't care for the cheese-grating experience. I'm guessing I am in the minority, as they are wildly popular.

I do like your two-tone look. I've always enjoyed the contrasting colors like that on a handgun.

That does look like the one on my Coonan.
