Thumbs up New Member- Pair .45's

Caught a very serious infection.... Called a Kimber trigger feel.
Once I felt it, My addiction was worse than the Colt Goldcup National Match affliction from 40 years ago.....

First I came across a Tactical Entry II, put it thru 250 without a burp. Bought stainless clips to add to it.

Then I thought I wanted a setup to put the can on it.... So I ordered,

A Custom TLE/RL II, again. Put it thru 250, but using the blue clips...
Now here is a fine tuned tight fitting auto...
and the spring tension in the clip reminds me of a 4 am toilet call..... pretty limp.
I had 5 hangs in the tube on the last round. Not a full chamber.
What's the general debate with the forum....
stay with the stainless clips. Or use another brand entirely... if this was a duty carry, I would not be happy.
I have a FNP 45 Tactical with 3500 down the pipe and never skipped a beat, clean or dirty.... The Trigger doesn't compare...
Love the trigger, as much as...... My Wife!

First, welcome to the forum. Second, don't et your wife see the last sentence in your post!
I usually don't put to much thought into malfunctions until I have about 500 rounds through a Kimber. Some magazines just seem to work better in some guns then others.I have blued and stainless that work in mine. If you're like most of us, you'll try several different brands before you find what you and your guns like.

Welcome to the KT, and I think your "infection" can be easily spread to others!

Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois Mfire1, it sounds like you've got a good case of Kimberitus.
