DefenseReview got to handle the new Kimber Warrior 1911 pistol (.45 ACP) at its debut at SHOT Show 2005. Basically, it’s the civilian-release version of the U.S. Marine Corps (USMC) ICQB/MCSOCOM Det 1 pistol, although there are some differences. For instance, the Kimber Warrior utilizes an integral M1913 tactical light rail, instead of the Dawson screw-on rail that the ICQB/MCSOCOM Det 1 pistol uses. Also, the ICQB pistol features Simonich/Strider Gunner Grips, while the Kimber Warrior pistol utilizes grips with a different cut pattern. It would appear that the Kimber Warrior also does ulitize an Ed Brown grip safety. However, both pistols utilize a Kimber Series I safety system (Series 70 safety system), which DefRev prefers to the Kimber Series II safety system, utilized on the Kimber Custom TLE/RLII 1911 pistol.
