New Kimber .38 Super & New Heinie Sights
Finally got my new .38 Super Target II last week, and sent the slide to Heinie for a set of Slant Pro Night Eyes sights. Got the slide back today, and took the pistol to the range. The sights are absolutely great. The pistol shot very good, with no problems with feed or ejection. Accuracy was 2-3" a 25yds. The only problem encountered was a couple of failures of the slide to lock back on the last round, probably happened 4 times out of 10 mags. Tried the Kimber factory mag, and a Chip McCormick Shooting Star mag, both new 10rd mags, with the same results of failure to lock the slide back. Will probably try the Wilson mag next. Overall happy with the pistol, sights, accuracy and recoil. Thanks for all your help and input!
