Try Personal Defense Weapons in El Dorado Hills. Both owners have been through numerous Armors schools, including Colts. They know there stuff.

Any 1911 armorer should be able to do the job. Kimber is just a brand, the parts are the same.

Well considering they said no I guess they aren't able to do the job lol. Here's a quote from the smith "There is the chance that I will have to cut the original sights off the slide, as both Kimber and Springfield have a tendency to put the sights in with hydraulic power"

I' am sending it up to Action Gunsmithing in Grass Valley. Seems like a good guy. I have had a few good recommendations. I' am shipping it tomorrow or Friday. I'll let ya know how it goes and post picks when it gets back.

Try Action Guns, They installed Meprolight night sights on my Kimber and did a good job. Cost was 50 bucks and turn around was over night.

I just bought a Kimber Custom II. Pick up date is on the sixth. I'm glad I found this thread. I plan to shoot it first and then decide on whether I want to add sights or not. I'm looking forward to your review. Where did you buy your sights and which ones did you get?

Thumbs up Done

Update ....

Just got an E-mail from Russell at Action Gunsmithing in grass Valley and it seems he's already done Hell it's only been 9 days since I sent it to him. He cut my extractor some and tuned it and put on the XS Big Dots. I'll post some pics when I get it back.

Default great job

I think I put some pics in another thread but here...Russell did super work super fast for a great price I think I ended up paying $61 for sight install, cutting and polishing the extractor and shipping back. I 100% recommend him.
