WTB Recoil Spg. Guide From Old Kimber Conv. Unit

Just a shot in the dark, but are there any Kimber Forum guys could help me out? I lost the recoil spring guide from an older 22 LR conversion kit sold be Kimber but made by Ciener Conversions. The newer Kimber kit are no longer made by J. A. Ciener for the past 4 or 5 years. Help Please, Kimber no longer has parts for their older units.

Have you tried ordering one from the factory? Scroll down the parts list to "recoil spring guide rod"... $12.50.

I would if I could determine if Ciener is still in business.

No thank you, I tried to help, I located a website for you and posted a link. I'm not going to do the work required to determine if the place is still in business. I've given you a link with their address, phone number and other contact information on it what you decide to do with it is on you.

The guys voicemail is as old school as his website...

"Don't leave a number because we can't call you back" "Please visit our website"

He still has you wait two weeks for a money order to clear since he doesn't accept credit cards and then he will ship your item..

Super Mod...please give me a little me credit for having a bit of intelligence since I did spell all my words correctly and did use punctuation where needed. I did call his website several times previously and got a four or five year almost unintelligent recording, after which I called two gun stores in the Cape Canaveral area and neither person with whom I talked knew anything about the status of J.A. Ciener or his company. The reason for my original post was to ask for help from our Kimber Forum members. Was your curt response necessary?
