Anyone bobbed a Kimber?

Hello all,

I have a Kimber Pro CDP II, and while I really like the gun, I want a bobbed frame. Has anyone sent out a Kimber to get bobbed? Who does good work without a long waiting period? I would love to get on a list, but do not want the gun gone for 8-12 months. I would love to see some pictures of any that have been done, and if it were a Pro CDP II that would be even better. Thank you for your time.

Here's 2 CDPs off another forum.

Neither of them sent theirs to Kimber. They both did them themselves with the jig.

Jimmie,

I did not know there was a jog for this. Do you know where I can find this jog, and how hard it is to do? Definitely food for thought.

Brownells or Midway sell the MSH and the jig. You need a way to cut the frame and drill the hole. Those that have done it say it's not hard at all. I imagine it's cake if you have the right tools - I do not so I can't say for sure.

Thank you for this information, I would love to speak with someone who has done this to see how involved the procedure is.

Not to push traffic off this site, but if you join up on m1911.org, there are many guys over there that have done it and would be happy to help. Being a dedicated 1911 forum and all...
