Hi All- I just bought a Kimber Custom II. Traded an AR-15 upper plus my Rufer 22LR and 400 bucks.
The gun is new and got a Kimber 22LR kit for shooting at the Gun Club indoor range.
I looked at cheaper springfields, Armscorp and Smith wesson. The fred Bauers were out of my leauge.
What do you guys think of Kimber? It was the only one labelled "Made in Yonkers NY, USA". All the others were made in croatia, Brazil, Phillipeans etc.

You did well

Great quality. Ready to run out of the box. Nothing needs to be done to them but shoot them. Enjoy!

Why ask now?

You already got it, isn't it too late for a consensus? Rather than ask if it's good, go out shoot the damned thing, then let us know if it's good.

kimbers

are good, but you may experience a break in period where you'll run across a couple ftf's and fte's. All should be good after a few hundred rounds.

Oh, I'll drop the soap

And I use liquid soap, so it takes longer to pick up
