Who is carrying the Raptor II?




The full size weapon, not the 4incher Thinking of using this as my carry...

I love the grips and serrations...

My Raptor II gets about 75% of the use as my daily carry off duty weapon and the Desert Warrior gets carried the other 25% of the time. No real reason behind the Raptor getting carried more, it's just my favorite of the two.

Sorry, I carry a Raptor II Ultra, 3" barrel, modified with Smith & Alexander SS main spring housing and magwell and magwell grips... the gun shoots flawlessly and is a dream to carry!!

I am rockin a Grand Raptor 2. On and off of the IDPA course. The VZ grips are tougher and much grippier than the beautiful wooden Raptor grips.

I carry PRII everyday and IMDAPOV this is the finest gun Kimber puts out. The Raptor series is very unique style and the only people who get it are the ones who carry one. A 45 is all I will ever shoot or carry and I would be perfectly content if when SHTF I would want me PRII

Carrying my Grand Raptor since I bought it. My Kimber Pro Carry II needs more break in time yet or at least it seems too. I am trying a different ammo to see if it was just the ammo. I had a couple of failure to feed. It appears to be the tightness of the gun. I can slap it into battery.

I just got my new Raptor last week. Put 200 rounds through it over the weekend with no issues. Got my VZ Elite Tactical Carry grips in the mail yesterday, sorry no photos yet. It will be my new carry weapon very soon.
