Enjoyed the video and a comment from my own experience. Some months back I purchased a new CDP pistol and after a through clean, took it out to the range for a test drive. My new CDP ran fine on the two types of jacketed bullets I fed it but jammed about every other time I ran my hand loads through it with cast lead bullets. Not good! Took it home and again cleaned it well and took it down. Took my Dremel tool, a felt bob and polishing compound and proceeded to polish the chamber and fed ramp to a mirror finish. Now my pistol chambers and fires anything I fed it. Just a heads up for anyone shoot lead through theirs.

Great video. Just when you think you "know it all"....... NOT!



Don't be that guy!

The bit about breaking the chamber edges on both sides was new to me and makes perfect sense. Wonder why the factory does not fully "finish" their guns?

Love my Kimbers, but DANG!

hahahahaha trust me i learn new things daily. sometimes its just about keeping cost down. less machining needed in the process, if you look at the high cost models they already come chamfered. this is not only in Kimber but alot of manufacturers.
