Some of the first guns shipped with the "WAVE". A LWT Kimber Pro Carry and a stainless Kimber 40 rechambered in 10mm both with Brown beavertails, Heinie sights and BCP ignition systems.

Those darn things DO get better looking the more you see them!

What are the chances that these will void Wilson Combat's service policy? Have you dealt with that issue at all?

My WC will probably be needing a refinish in the next year or so and before that it will get some type of frontstrap treatment.

I think abnranger is referring to the fact that it almost looks like these pistols now have "finger grooves" as a result of the WAVE modification. I'm certain that this is only a visual illusion, but I can see where one might draw that conclusion -- especially from the last photo.

GTO,

The full size frames have 7 arcs totaling 3 and 1/2 S's. The compacts have one less arc making for a total of 3 S's. 7 vertical rows of waves for each frame.

The MSH has almost 6 arcs making for 3 S's, with 4 vertical rows of Waves. This is for the full size MSH, the compact will be a bit less. The start of the waves on the MSH start under the grip safety, so part of the first arc isn't cut. This is done so the arcs can finish close to the bottom of the MSH. The pattern and size of the waves is the same for the MSH and frame. Hope this helps clarify.

abnranger,

There are not really bumps on the frontstrap. It is an illusion caused by the wave. I asked the same question when the first pics of the wave were posted because it looked lik teh frint surface was wavy along with the milled wave pattern. If you do a search you will fnd a pic that shows the front strap taken from the mag well up to the triggerguard. It is indeed still flat. I believe this picture is on Dane's webpage too.
