RH Cocking stud

Thought I would post this again for those that have an early Kimber 82 with a RH Threaded cocking stud. You never know when they may be un-obtainable again.

Thanks for posting that, I saved it for future reference. For those who are unaware, JnP Springs makes both the left and right hand threaded studs, stock up on a few if you haven't already.

The original RH thread cocking stud was switched to a LH thread cocking stud on or about April 16, 1982. Trying to date a KoO by serial number is not a reliable proposition as records have been lost and serialization protocols varied widely over the years. While collectors have seen certain trends, I date them based on generally accepted production change dates, such as the April 16, 1982 cocking stud change date above.

The next major change after April 16, 1982 was the adding of the independent bolt stop button on or about September 3, 1982. So basically, if you have a gun without an independent bolt stop, your gun "probably" has the RH thread cocking stud. If you could magically learn that your gun was made between May and September of 1982, you "probably" had the new LH thread cocking stud.

So while the "early" KoOs had the RH cocking stud, it can't be said that all 82As have the RH stud? Some of the later 82As have a LH stud?
