    King's ambis are retained by a head on the hammer pin. Aren't the Kimbers? But that safety does not look like MY King's.

    I'm sure that the Kimber ambi is. Given that this part rested in my parts/junk box for years, guess I really can't say with certainty which brand it is. Thought it was Kimber as it was in Kimber packaging... maybe somebody with sharp eyes and a sharper memory than mine will come up with the answer!
    I'm retired. That's right, retired. I don't want to hear about the cop who stopped you today or how you didn't think you should get a ticket. That just makes me grumpy!

    Despite the nasty weather today, I did get out and shoot it. Could not believe that I got the sights right on when installing them, but here's the proof.

    At 15 yards, it shoots right to POA - I had the sight at the bottom/center edge of the rectangle:



    Starting at 3 yards and backing up to 7, firing as rapidly as I could reacquire the sights:



    I think it will do. I'll probably be replacing the rest of the springs just on principle, and might tackle a new extractor as the extraction is erratic. The 10 round Wilson magazines were pretty hard to lock in on a closed slide, and I had two FTFeed malfunctions (one on the second round, the other on the third round of another mag) that a tap on the rear of the slide fixed. I'll keep shooting with them, but if I can't get them to work right it isn't much of a handicap to use 9 round mags - the Metalform 9 rounder that came with the pistol works just fine.
