kimber attack

I don't think iv'e ever seen so many people basically attacking kimber 1911s.......wow ...is this a tactical move from the competition. Does anybody have anything positive to say about kimbers or is it that everyone expects to much out of a gun because of the price they have to pay for them. I have seen the same problems with many other handguns and i dont mean to be cocky but maybe everyone should quit crying about every little problem they have. Sorry if i have offended some of you but im getting sick of hearing the crying.

this is true i guess its a place to vent, I had owned a cdp2 and had zero problems with it and now im going to get the tactical pro 2 myself.Im hoping its every bit as good as my cdp was.

I have had no problems at all with my Custom Stainless. Flawless from day one. You are right the other makes of pistols have problems too but it seems you se more bit++ing about the kimber. Oh well can't keep everyone happy.
The new warrior is next on my list. Ron

hey if its good enough for marine special ops !! why not? I also like the raptor even if it is a bit overdone. I picked the tactical pro 2 basically because its bushingless and im lazy, i dont like to remove the bushing every time i clean it.

I have two . . . a "Warrior" and a TLE/RL II s/s, both are new and both are very accurate and reliable. No problems at all. I think they're great.

I have owned good and not so perfect Kimbers.

My 4" SS Compact has had some growing pains related to the external extractor and RC springs.


Since installing a new wolfe 4" Kimber RC spring and XP extractor spring it is now alsmost perfect. 1000+ rounds now with 0 malfunctions.

My only bitch about this kimber was the factory springs.

I have a CDP Pro and a Eclipse Target Model that have both been 100% reliable for me. My nephew bought a Eclipse Custom with new external extracter and has had many extraction problems. His rear sight has also drifted to the left all on its own. I guess sometimes it is the luck of the draw. :roll:
