Stainless 11 9mm question.

Just bought this gun and the condition is very nice. Shot it for the first time and empty shell didn't eject, this makes me think it's the extractor. Anyone else have this problem?
Also would like to buy a couple more. I have 4 of the Kimber ones but not liking them to much, problem with the last shell sticking.
Is there a Kimber store like the Glock store?

Welcome to the forum from Ohio. There is no Kimber store, but if you are having a problem, call Kimber customer service. They are the best and will take care of whatever you need.

Cool My 2 Cents Worth!!

What Steve said about Kimber Customer Service!! Those guys are miracle workers. They will work with you to cure your pistol's ailments!!

For helping to diagnose you problem, you need to gather information, such as: what type of ammo are you using? Does the problem occur with all magazines or just one? Have you cleaned and lubed your pistol, per Kimber recommendations? Is the pistol broken in yet? (requires 400-500 rounds of FMJ ammo usually). Are your magazines clean? With this info, the Kimber folks can pretty much determine what your problem is. They will advise as to what adjustments you can make or advise you to just pack it up and send it on an all expenses paid vacation to beautiful downtown Yonkers, New York!!! If that is the case, the vacation will do wonders for your pistol! It will come back like a whole new pistol!!!


BTW, welcome to the forum from the booming Southern metropolis of Monroe, Georgia!!!

I don't quite understand your questions? Do you want to buy a couple more Kimbers or 3rd party extractors? The first thing I would do is tear it down according to the manual, clean and lube where needed. Then buy some reliable factory load ammo and see it you still have a problem. Dirt and ammo can cause a lot of bad issues. Of course you should call Kimber first as they know a lot more than me but if you have some time it is always good to get it as clean and lubed as possible.

Rereading your OP, are you having problems with four guns? Maybe you are asking about magazines. A little more info on your problem would help.
