Does anyone have any prolems with their finish coming off of their Eclipse's? Mine seems to practically rub off after cleaning. I am very careful not to rub too hard. It really ruins the beauty of such a fine piece!

Mine gets dull looking as well. I saw more dulling when I used Gun Scrubber or Action Blaster. I basically stick with Hoppes and Tetra now to clean. Try wiping it down with a soft , clean cloth. Any oil based cleaners like Hoppes or WD-40 like Freeze N mention will brightener' up. Just keep it out of holsters!

The black parts will get dull looking after cleaning. That is normal. Rub a little oil on it and it will look good again.
If the finish is literally coming off when you clean it, that is not normal and I would contact Kimber about it if it were my gun.
