Just bought my first Kimber.
Just bought my first Kimber it is a Custom II. Have not shot it yet but already very impressed with it. Any comments or feedback on this model would be appreciated. Thanks

Hope you like your Custom II as well as I do! I've had mine a little over 3 months. No problems what so ever! The only modification I have made is to put in a merc. guide rod to tame the recoil a tad. Since it is a little lighter than my old .45. i shot a caspin hand built race gun for 2 years. traded that for my Kimber and love it.
The only thing that I see as a "problem" is the ammo sensitivity. do NOT use reloads to "break in" the kimber, as per drections. a freind did and it jammed 7 times in 3 mags worth of ammo! I've never had a problem. I shot 500 rounds of Speer Lawman 230 gr. to do the break in period. After that i shot a variety of non +p defense rounds. I guess it depends on the barrel but mine seems to shoot Speer gold dot quite well!
