I think my wife bought me a Desert Warrior for Christmas. I am so excited I can't stand myself. I have been searching for extra mags, IWB holster and other stuff. I can't decide on the holster. I am not sure if I will put away the G23 for the Kimber or just alternate what I carry. Are the Kimber mags OK ot should I get anather brand????
IMO the kimber mags are better than they used to be...BUT I would buy some Wilson Combat mags...for the price, it is a great piece of mind.
IF your hunch is right...congrats, and enjoy...
I've tried different brands of magazines in Kimbers and Colts, and the best I've found are the Wilson Combat 8 round with flat steel base pad, like these for $30 from Midway:
Wilson Combat magazines at Midway USA
You will put away the G23, for awhile at least. I use the KimPro Tac-mags they work perfectly.
I use various Wilson mags, and CMC Powermags with my Kimber.
what about the IWB.....i like the Milt SParks Versa Max 2
I'll second the Kim-Pro mags. They have been flawless for me. The Wilson 47D's are very reliable from what I've read but I have no first hand experience with them. Wilson is also coming out with a new mag that might be of interest as well:
You can't go wrong with the VM2. Here's a link that may have it in stock. They are a little more than ordering directly from Milt Sparks but if they have it in stock, you can get it now as opposed to possibly having to wait 6 months. And really, less than $30 more isn't that big of a deal.
If your wife did in fact get you the Desert Warrior, congrats on a great gun and an even greater wife!!
My ESP tells me you are getting a Davis 38 Derringer instead, sorry..Might look into life insurance for sure..:image035:
You will love the Kimber of which I have 5. Just shoot them till they are 100%, and in my experience with mine and others I know who have them, it takes a bit.
I know where you can pick up a VMII without the wait. :smile:
$280 for a VMII?? ( 1 2)
The Desert Warrior is a great weapon. It's my primary home defense handgun. When I do carry it, I use an HF1 from Tucker Gunleather.
I use only Wilson Combat mags in both my Kimbers.

With the original grips and the Insight M3X mounted.
With Kimber rosewood grips.
I have 3 Kimbers....
Pro Carry HDII in .45
Pro Carrry HDII in. .38Super
Eclipse (full size) in 10mm
The .45 was the one that I've had the magazine issues with....bought Wilson's & no more problems.
Get some Tripp Research Cobra Mags, even higher quality build than Wilsons (pricier though), can't even see where they welded it!
I love that holster.

Fine leather work in those pics. I wish you hadnt posted them. Now I have to give the Tucker folks a call and spend a few bucks. Hate to wait 6 months,but it looks like it will be worth it.
