Okay, I'm playing with it slightly, if my bro let's me keep it a few days, maybe I'll scan :smile:
It's a single plunger held in by the sear pin, with a channel that runs along near the disconnector.
The cut in teh slide is thinner than the series 80 parts, and more forward (towards the barrel) It's an oval, instead of a circle.
It takes a regular grip safety (I had a drop in off an enchanced colt, it worked fine)
This particular Kimber's sear spring wasn't set to push the grip safety out, easily fixed, but still curious.
That's all I saw on a cursory look.

what are the signs a Kimber has this feature? other than complete disassembly can it be seen from the outside or at least with nly field stripping? I don't see anything like you describe just looking down the magwell at the disconnector but I'd like to be sure it doesn't have one. box doesn't say "II" or anything.. I just got one that was on layaway for two months and was thinking it was an old enough one to not have this feature but I may be wrong. I was looking for the standard 80 type plunger; which it, of course, doesn't have.

thanks,
Eugene

The series II guns should say it right after the model name. The other way is just like the series 80 way, lock the slide back and look for the plunger there in.

O.K. just got a little excited there for a minute and wanted to be sure. If it looks like the 80 then mine's ok.

thanks,

If your Kimber is a Series II model, it will say so on the right side of the slide following the model name.

If it just says the model name, it is a Series I but will not say I.

I have a new Kimber Stainless Target II and have had no trouble with anything so far. My Series II drop safety works just fine.

I am not yet through my breakin rounds yet but having no problems in the first 150 rounds, I think the odds are that the rest should go smoothly.
