Thats good advice, thanks. Any other advice for a new 1911 owner?Tarheel said:My father-in-law has the same gun, I would not shoot HP through in the break in and also the slide needs lots of lube. This is a super tight gun and needs lots of oil in the break in or will not shoot well.
Good choice from another Super Match IIe and Glock M23 owner. You will not be sorry! As previously stated, the Super Match is "tight as a tick" and requires "attention to detail" during the break-in period. The Kimber Super Match is not a Glock M23 when it comes to care and feeding. Read and follow the owner's manual instructions on cleaning and lubing to the letter except for one point - apply twice the amount of lube! IMHO Shooters Choice FP10 or Break Free CLP are the only lubes to use. Please post a range report and good, safe shooting!PhoneCop said:My first 1911 since a 1911A1 I carried in the Army MP Corp.
Been very happy with my Glock 23, but I ordered a Kimber Supermatch II because I wanted one.:rock:
Watch for the range report once it arrives.
As I stated, but I appreciate your concern...Puffy said:I hope you get an internal extractor!
PhoneCop said:Per the Kimber Catalog they both have the tactical extractor, but mine arrived with the internal extractor, the pictures show different extractors, what did yours have?
Holy Smokes! Your not kidding-Tight as a Tick! But I've had much less trouble removing ticks than I had removing and replacing the barrel bushing!OpsMgr said:As previously stated, the Super Match is "tight as a tick"
