Smile Round Butts Are Sexy

Hello one and all.

Kimber Camp Guard 10mm arrival.
When I first seen weapon, it reminded me of hunting camp.
Black skillet,eggs,bacon & potatoes.Picked up the weapon and flash back to hunting camp again of.....black coffee in the morning & dark whiskey in the evening ran thru the ol’brain.Knew it was for me.

Disassemble & Clean.
Weapons fit is tight.To tight in my op.Slight machine marks in upper slide.Rest of weapon finish appears GTG.

Wrapping up pre fire mag & ammo ejection test.Hope to post soon.
Time to celebrate with my buddy Jose .Cheers.

Round butts are indeed sexy, that's a beautiful looking gun. I'm anxious to see your range report.

Thank you.

Pre fire mag & ammo test.Weapon cleaned and lubed every 100 rounds per manual with FP-10.All mags 10mm.

Ammo all 180 grain FMJ.Bullet profiles differ.Most round bullet profile to least.Sig,UMC,Fenix and Magtech.

Rankings by number of “winners” to feed and eject.

1 Sig Elite
2.UMC nickel case.
3 Fenix
4 Magtech.Total mess.

Magazines
1 Metal Form MET10797P
2 Mec-Gar
3 Kimber
4 Wilson 47NX

Test.Rack slide & drop slide with various mag ammo combos.

Sig & UMC ammo.All mags.High rate of successful feed and extract.

Fenix ammo perfered
1 metal form
2 Mec-Gar
3 Kimber FTF & go into battery 80%.
4 Wilson A phone call is in order.

Magtech ammo was a mess.
Kimber & Wilson mag.Extremely hi probability FTF & battery.If it did go in.It ejected at least.
Metal form slightly better then above results.
Mec-gar 80% successful feeding

Not a picture often seen on a “gun” forum.
Noticed something “different” with my wife as we where at the store.As all us men know.When this happens.Better figure it out quick or face the wraith.

Thinking thru the norms.IS her hair different? No.Is her make up different? No.Maybe new clothes or shoes? No.Then it dawns on me.New purse.

After thinking this thru.I comment.Honey you look absolutely stunning.
She winks at me.”I like your new guns also.”

I count my blessings everyday.

Please disreguard post #6.Live fire proven different from drop/rack slide results.

Closer to the 500 round break in.Per manual.Will reserve all judgement until then.

Reminder.This is my 1st kimber.Carried a 1911 in service.Own a few others.
First day(saturday) 250 rounds.It was truly eventful for me.I would like to start off........The camp Guard is extremely sexy.The grips are as beautiful as the come from a factory.Spent to much time examing them.For me,it’s not always about the destination.Rather the journey.Memories of past are priceless.

All results will exclude magtech 180 FMJ & Metalform mags.They did not play well with this particular example.

14th full mag down range.Issue with ammo,I believe.Wait until I hear back from manf. before posting issue.
18th full mag (kimber mag/sig ammo)Ejected brass locked in port.
28th full mag(Wilson 47nx mag/umc ammo)Fail to go into full battery 3rd round.

End result.98% Successful.250 round.Feed/Fire/eject.

Will post todays results soon.Thank you for your time & good shooting.

Left target is 25yds standing.Two hands.
Right target is 25yds.One hand standing.
