The internet reputation of Kimber is vastly over dramatized and inaccurate. You are right, they run or they don't, which is true of all 1911s, but you'll find Kimbers tend to run. And run and run and run.I don't read a lot of positive things about kimber, unfortunately. Seems like they either run, or they don't.
So I was and will do a full write up review soon.Dont say that. What is the fluke? I have zero patience for finicky guns. They find themselves on armslist
I couldn't say no to the kimber. seemed like an epic value. I really want the range officer champion 4" 9mm, but didnt want to spend the extra money.
Worst case scenario, if the kimber doesn't run, i will sell it and move on with life. I don't read a lot of positive things about kimber, unfortunately. Seems like they either run, or they don't.
I didn't use a rest. It was all with my hands.When you say that the chamber was short, are you referring to unsupported case wall? I suppose that would be the visual indicator. You're suspecting that the projectile isn't in the appropriate position, relative to the rifling?
I'm going to do the same. The grips ar a bit slippery too. I plan on swapping the full length guide rod and plug too.Thanks
I think my kimber should be here tomorrow. worst case scenario, Tuesday. Im excited. I will post pics and whatnot once I receive it. I anticipate covering the gun in skateboard grip tape like i do every other gun i own
I picked up one today at Bass pro shop, I got the stainless for $599.97 then a$30 military discount. I did make it to the range and put about a 100 rounds through it. Very tight groups, no malfunctions. I'll probably change out the plastic mainspring housing and the beaver tail appears to be plastic also. But anyway I'm glad that I bought it.
