Kimber 1911 Experts: Passive Safety Question
I understand that all Kimber 1911 pistols with a Roman number II rollmarked on the slide have the Series 80 style passive safety.
Where are the pistols that pre-date the "II?" Are they all the hands of collectors, or what?
I like Kimber's quality, but I don't like an added-on-after-the-fact firing pin safety, that is not needed, that requires extra machining, and adds unnecessary parts.
