I did the tape deal the first time and it worked fine.
Now after field striping and cleaning 5 or 6 times... it's no problem at all.
At first I was gripping with the right hand trying to pull the slide up to the take down notch. Now I learned to just lock the slide, then release... letting the recoil spring slowly pull the slide itself to the take down notch. Much easier than pulling the slide against the spring.
Looks like I'm late to the party but Happy Birthday and congrats on your Kimber! Those Raptors are just drop dead sexy!
Happy birthday, nice looking Kimber!
Remember not to engage the Schwartz safety when you are putting the slide back on. Otherwise you could damage the safety.
Just looking at that beauty makes me want to break out my Colt Officers model, dress it up a bit and start carrying it again!
Very nice pistol. May it give you a lifetime of happy service!
And Happy Birthday!

beautiful pistol, I saw one at a gun store and it was lust at first sight
