Bless your heart - and I don't mean that "the southern way." I know how much force it takes me to rack the slide of my SIG's, and if someone actually measure that amount of force and compare it to the Kimber it would help a lot. I think someone put a thread somewhere on that subject and it seems that there is not a real way of doing that measurement. I also think I've been told that the recoil spring is the same on both the SIG and the Kimber, so that sort of lets me know that the force necessary to rack the slide is going to be very similar between the two guns.I wish for Grannies sake and others someone would invent a device to measure the force it takes to rack a slide. If we can measure trigger break Im sure some smart person could come up with a way to measure a slide being racked.
Maybe it's been done already.
