Super Carry Range Report

My Super Carry came back from Kimber on Monday. According to the invoice they reamed & polished the barrel, adjusted the extractor & test fired 3 different types of ammo thru it.

I was able to visit the range with it yesterday.



I'm SUPER HAPPY to report that it was FLAWLESS with 100 rounds downrange!!!!!



Thanks to Kimber, but more importantly - thanks to all the members on here (esp Mike240) who helped me troubleshoot it as well as have patience while it was misbehaving.

LOL, you were misbehaving? LOL

Glad your baby is playing nice and you are a happy camper.

How do you like shooting with those grips? Pretty nice, huh?

Didn't get to shoot with them yet. I need the thin bushings & screws for them. Just temporarily installed them with the longer screws so I could post some pics for you.

Cool Cool!!

Ain't it just like those guys at Kimber Customer Service to fix your problem!!! I hope my Pro Carry's ailment turns out to be just that one defective Chip McCormick magazine. I talked to the CMC folks yesterday and they are sending me two new 8 round Shooting Star mags. If the problem is cured, I'll be extremely happy (like you)!!

I'm still gonna shoot that defective magazine though!!! I may even toss the hard drive from my old computer into the target pile with the magazine. Both items will get what they deserve........death by firing squad!!!

Why not break it down and see if you can fix it?

Nope Chuck, that ain't gonna happen. The hard drive never had a problem. It is from my old computer with the Windows XP operating system, that Microsoft no longer supports. That is why I bought the new one with Windows 8. I pulled the hard drive and donated the computer to Good Will.

Now, I'm going to destroy the hard drive beyond recovery, with all my personal info on it! 2guns.gif 2guns.gif fear.gif fear.gif

I meant the MAGAZINE, not the hard drive.
