Does anyone have one? I am getting the itch for a new gun and saw this one in a gun magazine. It looked good and received grand reviews. It is just the size I want and is nice looking. The person writing the review raved about it but is also on the payroll of a magazine in which Kimber spends hundreds of thousands of dollars advertising. I'm looking for opinions from people not on that payroll.
I have heard all good about Kimber's quality. The only thing bad I have heard is that they have very poor Customer Service after the sale. Anything else I should know before deciding to buy one or not to buy one?
I have a Kimber Ultra Elite that I have carried for nearly Ten years now with nary a hitch. Never had any dealings with Customer Service since I've never had a lick of trouble. When it was brand new the mags were a little rough so I took them apart and ran them in my vibratory case cleaner for 24 hours and that polished them to a fine satin sheen. Since then I've probably fired over 20,000 rounds without even one jam. I used to be a diehard Colt fan and at one time I had 13 Colts in 45 acp, 10 mm and 40S&W and they were all stainless Gold Cups. I had to do a lot of work on them to make them reliable so when Kimber started making 1911 clones I jumped on them with both feet and never looked back.
