Got my new Kimber yesterday

I bought a new Custom II yesterday. Went to the range and tried it out. It seems very accurate but it has the worst trigger I've ever seen on a hand gun.
A lot of real rough creep before it shoots. I guess I'll shoot it some more to see if any other issues come up, then send it back to Kimber.

Has anyone else had the same problem?

Congrads on the new purchase!

What do you not like about the trigger on your Kimber?

I doubt Kimber will do any trigger work on Your Pistol , You might be better served by takein' the money You would spend on shippin' the pistol to and from Kimber and if You can find a good pistolsmith in Your area and get Your ignition parts worked over......could be something as simple as a sear spring needin' adjustin' to needin' sear , hammer , sear spring , mainspring , disconector replaced and tuned.......Some Hands can buy Kuhnhausens' two books on 1911s, buy the A G I videos on 1911s and replace all the needed parts themselves

Boosted the hammer with a screw driver, this took out most of the creep. Shot the gun. Slide locks back on next to last shot about a third of the time. Kimber is sending a new slide lock to try in it.

The new slide release did not correct the problem. I dimpled the original release and have put around 175 rounds through it without a problem. I want to run another 300 rounds before doing anything with trigger pull.
