Three (3) days the first time. I'd have really been impressed if they'd fixed it. Still failed to extract.

About ten (10) days the second time. Still failed to extract....

Shoot it immediately upon receipt. Call Kimber for a call tag so it goes back the next time at their expense.

Turn Around

Just got my Kimber Custom II back tonight. :) Was having FTE's. They polished push rod, reamed barrel chamber, replaced extractor with a .120 and polished the feed ramp. The work looks good to me. :cool: After doing a little research on this site I am going to clean and lubricate it up tonight and maybe shoot tomorrow. I am also thinking about carrying a little oil to the range and apply more oil after the first fifty rounds or so just to make sure it does not dry out. I am approaching 600 rounds so that may assist in the "breaking in" process.

Turn around time was exactly 2.5 weeks! Pretty good if all goes well. :cool:

Update: 11/10/05- Just got back from the range. Shot about 84 rounds. One FTE due to my limp wristing a shot. The pistol shoots like a dream. Incredibly accurate. Now the spent cartridges are ejecting and banging against the walls at the range.:rock: :rock: :biglaugh: :biglaugh:
