Good luck, I can remember years ago when I said the same thing. And when I said it about my 3rd ,4th, 5th etc etc etc, it never gets old it just gets harder. I've been jonesing for a new Kimber but can't find one that rings my bell, I'm kind of hoping to run across a K6 or Campguard in a LGS.

Thanks guys, I appreciate the replies. I went from a very high to a very low attitude when I got the gun home to clean it. If I didn't say earlier it's a used gun (bought from a friend), I was taking it apart and noticed the right side grip was loose. I took the grip off and the top stud came out with the grip and screw. Looking around in the box I found 2 small rubber gaskets and realized they had been left out after a recent cerakoting. Is this a pain repair or should I try to see if the company who did the recent work would repair? My friend offered my money back saying he knew nothing about it and hadn't had the gun out since the cerakoting. Advice?

Nah, 2 is not divorce worthy. 10-12 might get you close, but just spread them out over time, you should be fine. Any good smith should have that grip stub done in a few minutes, if you dont feel like trying it yourself. If there is not a video in this site, check out YouTube

It's not a difficult fix, clean the thread in the frame and on the bushing with a degreaser. Apply a little Loctite to the threads on the bushing and screw it into the frame. Let the Loctite cure before reinstalling the grip and grip screw. The o-ring should go onto the grip screw just under the head, it will act like a lock washer so don't over tighten the screw.

well.............the threads are stripped in the frame. The oversized bushing wouldn't work. Have it at a local gunsmith and we're gonna try to JB Weld into place. Fingers crossed, update to come tomorrow.
