Howdy all,

Posted this on another forum, so I am hoping someone bites and helps me out.

Does anyone know of any 1911 makers that make an officers model with an unramped barrel?? My full size Kimber II uses an unramped barrel and it is stupid reliable. Eats everything I feed it.

My current officers model, a Kimber Ultra CDP II, uses a ramped barrel, and is pretty reliable with feeding, but every once in a blue moon I have to help it home as a round will get half way up the ramp and need coerced. Looking for an unramped model to cut down on this. Could it also be that the recoil assembly needs replaced?? 8 year old pistol with considerable range time.

Any and all help appreciated. Thanks all!!

Wilson Combat, and Les Baer all use unramped barrels on their Officer 45s.

If I recall correctly, Officer's need more frequent recoil spring replacement than larger 1911s.
BTW, steel framed Officer's are bunches nicer to shoot than alloy guns.

Thanks Moon! I’ll start there. Cheaper to do that than go through the headache of selling and buying again. Or trading, what have you.

Let you all know how it pans out.

This fairly new Office is ramped and runs as it should.
We load but have not had time to take it to 50 yds and lob some at 100. :D

Grips are .350" thick in this pic.
Will thin it to .300" or thereabouts after adding some other colors etc etc......
Scottish stuff.
Might look better with stainless grip screws?

Question:
Will grips that fit the frame fully wide on a Ruger fit other quality Officers?

Thx
