I have to say I have heard many mixed things about kimber so I bought this with an open mind. Well im about 1000 in and I could not be happier with it its not cheap by any means but it shows fit and finish is amazing and in the hands of someone who knows what they are doing its pretty much a surgeons tool
Kimber Warrior issues,

As far as I am concerned, the Warrior is an excellent 1911 variant. The magazine issue is correct. First thing I did was givemy Kimber mag away and purchased eight Wilson Combat mags. The holster issue is not a problem. It fits fine in my Fobus and drop holster as long as I am not using my tactical light. Last, the creep can be self adjusted, just read the manual. Bang!

A nicely made weapon that functions as a 1911 should - flawlessly. The only malfunctions I've had with this weapon were related to the poor quality Kimber magazines that are included. I replaced them with Wilson Combat and have had no issues. The only other challenge can be finding a holster (at least when I bought the gun), 1911s with a rail are still a bit rare. A little side note: when you rack the slide the gun rings like a bell - nice sound.

A Warrior it is,

Bought the Kimber Warrior at a local brick-n-mortar store a year ago. For the first 600 rounds, there were a few FTF (Failure to Feed) issues. Once the gun is broken in, it's been performing perfectly.
The gun is very accurate is an understatement. At 20 yard, I can paint a tight 2" group on the target using factory ammos. I am also able to hit a 15"x10" steel target from over 100 yards away with it. The felt recoil is less than what you would expect from a .45 caliber pistol due to its weight. This gun is heavy!
This is not a custom-shop gun so it is not priced like one. However, it performs almost right at the same level as those that cost $2K or more.
My only complain is that the trigger has a slight creep to it. Other than that, it is a perfect gun for me.
