I just got my first Kimber, a Desert Warrior. While reviewing the manual I was confused by a few terms used in the Lubrication section. The manual does not do a good job defining the following lubrication points:

Disconnector on top of the frame
Barrel Hood
Barrel locking lugs inside slide and on barrel.

Any clarification would be apppreciated,

The disconnector is the small "button" that protrudes from the top of the frame, just behind the magwell. The hood is the small square extension at the top/rear of the barrel. The barrel lugs are the "bands" in front of the chamber, and the corresponding slots in the slide forward of the ejection port.

Perhaps if someone has pictures of these lubrication points that they could post up it might help this fellow out.

Thanks to RickB for the anwsers, that should get me buy.
The picture suggestion would also be welcome.

I'm an experianced hunter with a nice collection of long guns and
a black powder handgun (10 wedding anv. from my wife).

My Kimber is my first "smokeless" handgun. I have to admit that
I fell in love with the 1911 design. I will be cleaning it today to
prepare for it's first shooting this weekend. It feels a little bit
like Christmas!

Regards,
David

db, if your Kimber is new you might want to be a little generous with your lube at first. A little extra can only help when shooting those first shots. Oh, and welcome to the site.
