Hey guys,
I have a deposit on a Kimber Custom TLE II which I will be purchasing in a day or two. Does Kimber ship it's handguns with two magazines? I only noticed one in the box when I looked at the TLE in the store. Am I getting cheated out of a mag, or should I only be getting one. Many of you have said that the Kimber factory mags are problematic, but if I am sopposed to get 2... then I want 'em anyway!

Thanks!

Mine only came with one. And I was stupid enough to order two more factory mags. But, they make decent range mags for topping off during IDPA.

Both my Pro Carry purchased several years ago and my TLE purchased last Spring came with only one mag. Both were worthless; I'm glad they only shipped one :hrm:

Both mags are in the little ziplock bags with the rest of the stuff that came with the pistols (except the bushing wrench [TLE] and the spring securing take down pin [Pro Carry]) in case I ever sell them.

Get a few Wilson or McCormack mags for every day use. See the numerous threads on the subject for preference. :D

I think you'll find that the new style mags that now ship with Kimbers will work just fine. BTW, Kimber is now also shipping in a snazzy new type of plastic pistol box with sliding clasps. Much nicer than and more usable than the old style ones.

I prefer the original boxes. I've got scars on every knuckle from opening them. You could always tell a Kimber owner by his hands.

Not to mention they worked great for shipping my Baer back for repair. :D
