what will it be when it grows up ?
I guess it's as grown as it's gonna get...so, 45ACP
looks pretty solid.
Kimber makes good guns
It's 7 + 1 in the pipe. I use Chip McCormic mags...had some feeding issues with the factory Kimber mag. Good shootin little CCW. It's my first Kimber, but probably not the last. Oh yeah...it is a 45.
if you dont mind and how is the recoil
Eventhough it has aluminum frame, the recoil is not bad at all. I was pleasantly surprised the first time I took it to the range.
I had the same problem with my ultra carry 2, have you had any problems with certain JHP not wanting to load with your chip mag?
Of course, the only JHP rounds I have fired are Winchester PDX1. 20 rounds
How long have you had the kimber?
I have fired 200 rounds FMJ and 20 JHP. Only one failure to feed with new mags in 100 rnds. Still in that 500 rnd break-in period I guess.
You’re going to have to get some FLITZ for the barrel for what ever reason they like to surface rust alot. You could do a quick web search for videos do you tube about how to fix it.
I have Flitz gun and knife wax. I don't have any on the barrel though. I have a layer of Ballistol on it. It should protect just as good I would think..? U?
Yea, mine started up after I took it hog hunting one day and had to tromp through bout a mile of salt water because the kayak sat to low with me and the boar. So I got online and found alot of people have had problems with them right out the box rusting on the barrel. Just a heads up.
I appreciate it. Congrats on the boar BTW.
He treed me, I borrowed a friends 12 gauge the extractor broke and I only found that out after I fell in a hole and the dam thing went off (finger off the trigger weapon on safe) and it fired when I fell. Then out comes the boar mad as hell and up the tree I went. The kimber took him right down though. Long story short my friend’s shotgun is now at the bottom of the river I kayaked in on (wasn’t going to carry the weight of a gun that was F'ed six ways from Sunday.
That's one hell of a story! I bet that was an interesting experience!
