    oh, and by the way is the frame cut for a ramped barrel?

    the Ciener design (which the Kimber is) is not designed to work with frames that use ramped barrels.

    form Kimber's site:

    Environmental concerns are very important to us here in Oregon.


    .....but I don't recycle my Wolf casings! (many many 1000s of them)

    Marvel kits work on both.

    Kimber kits only work with frames not cut for ramped barrels. I would ask Bobby if the frame is cut for a ramped frame or not. He has said in the past that he will not make Alloy frames cut for ramped barrels anymore because they were....defective.

    I would ask, seriously. I in my dealings with him he doesn't seem to know his arse from a hole in the ground.

    No, I would just ask Bobby in a Email "Is the frame cut for a ramped barrel?" (Save the email)

    I would not trust his "Sure...It'll work."

    I won't have time to build it till after Christmas. I just mailed the check off today so the frame won't be here for 10 working days or so. I've ordered frames from Bob before and the turnaround time is around 2 weeks. it will take me about 4 hours to build, test fire and get up to speed.
