Thank you all. I will call Kimber on a replacement slide stop AND will order some Wilson mags.


Hello all, First time posting. Just received my new .38 Super Stainless Target II. I cleaned and lightly oiled it after I picked it up from the gun shop, and went to the indoor range. It appears highly accurate, and comfortable to shoot. However only 1 in every 8 or 9 magazines did the slide remain back after the last round was fired. I know there is a break-in period and will be patient with it. However after years of shooting my other pistols (that I sold to get the Kimber; a Beretta 92FS and a old Sig P220) I never had any instance of the slide not remaining open after the final cartridge was ejected.

Does this pistol need to go back to Kimber, or???

Oly, about a month ago, I was also a newbie to this forum. One of the first bits of advice I received was to trash the Kimber mag and get some Wilson mags. I was having the same issue with my TLE/RL and the Wilson mags have performed flawlessly so far.

The "old timers" here really know what they are talking about.

I am awaiting delivery of the same pistol, only in 9mm. Can't wait
