Sure hope this fixes it.
I promise when you get the new recoil spring installed I won't say "I told you so" LOL.

I also have a new SCP HD. Headed to the range tomorrow with 3 of the Kimber mags that come with it. (Bought 2 more) Will shoot some magtech 230 ball ammo to start. Let you know tomorrow what happens.

Cool Good Stuff!!

Go with the Wilson Combat flat wire recoil spring. It lasts longer than the Kimber factory spring and you do not need any tool to disassemble anymore. Continue using the sling shot method of charging the chamber. Last of all, give Frog Lube a try. I heat my pistols up with a hair drier (it opens the pours of the metal) and apply the Frog Lube. Once the metal has cooled, wipe off the excess with a micro fiber cloth. I've been using it for a couple of years. It simplifies cleaning and does not attract dirt. Best of all, it gives your pistol minty fresh breath!!! Works good for me!!!

Well, I managed to steal a few minutes at the range with the SCP HD. Only ran 75 rounds through it. I had no problems either from the mags or the pistol. This is my second Kimber. I had one of the first 3" SS, stolen from me, and had forgotten how sweet they shoot.

BTW, thanks for all the welcomes. Lineman73, I had already changed the spring to the Wilson.

Glad to hear you had a successful range trip manmarco, I think the SCP is one of the finest guns Kimber makes.
