Is the kimber Custom TLE/RL2 frame the same as the warrior frame? I notice blade tech makes a holster to fit the Warrior, with a surefire x200, but not one to fit the TLE RL2 with the surefire X200, and im wondering if they're the same frame, if the same holster works for both.

Yes and no. The Warrior is Series I, and the TLE/RL is Series II. But, that is an internal difference. In terms of external differences, I never noted any. I use the same holster and the same Surefire Laser/Light with my Warrior as I used with my TLE/RL. Unfortunately, I sold my former TLE/RL and so I can't take precise measurements of the two side-by-side.

Yep all Kimbers with the Roman Numeral II as a suffix to the model name have the firing pin. This has lead to Kimbers made before the II suffix & firing pin block being known as "Series I" or "Pre-Series II", even though they bore their model name only and never had the roman Numeral I suffix. The full size Warrior models, and the various sizes of LAPD SIS commercial models are the only Kimbers currently produced for commercial sales without the FP block.
