Both of our pistols operated with a standard-length guide rod and swinging barrel link. One benefit of that is working the barrel link drains energy and disperses felt recoil. Note the texture of the synthetic grips.
Lots of pistols are shipped with Novak-‘style’ sights, but the Double included genuine Novaks. Note the fully rearward position of the sight.
The mainspring housing and the front strap showed 25-lpi checkering. The black grips were a perfect match for the frame and were perfect for as many different sizes of hands as we can imagine. Both pistols offered a raised contact area at the lower edge of the grip safety, but the pad found on the Double Star’s was bigger by about 40%.
The raised area on the grip safety of the Double Star Combat Pistol (bottom) was larger than the one found on the Kimber Desert Warrior. Both were functional, but individual preference may lead you to choose one over the other.
