Raptor magazine

My brother just ordered & received an Ultra Raptor ll. After he got it home he found out it had a Chip McCormick magazine. I told him that was unusual, if not unheard of. Anyone know if Kimber ever ships their guns from the factory with aftermarket mags, or did someone in the pipeline pull a fast one ?

Look at the bright side--maybe the McCormick works better...

Or maybe Chip McCormick makes Kimbers magazines and one of their branded ones got mixed up in a shipment to Kimber.

I thought this forum was better than that answer.

Uncle Chuck is probably correct but did your brother call the vendor and see what they have to say?

Devildog, I was only asking a question! I wasn't making fun of you. We have all been lied to before and I myself would wonder if I was being told it was new when it was actually used. Used things are being repackaged and sold as new all the time.
None of my Kimbers ever came with anything other than a kimber magazine, and just one of them at that. Just saying I would be suspicious. Besides you yourself said maybe someone in the pipeline may have pulled a fast one.

Exactly the answer I was hoping for. I only have a couple Kimbers myself & only one was new. Both came with Kimber factory mags.

No, the FFL is actually my friend & although I would swear by his honesty, I can't vouch for the guys he has working there. I will mention it to him next time I see him.

I know I have seen gun shops wipe down guns on display because who wants to see a dusty new gun. Maybe the magazines were inserted in the wrong 1911 by accident after a quick wipe down. I guess it’s also possible a customer switch them without the shop knowing. Also what Chuck said is a possibility. Like you, I have only received Kimber magazines with my Kimber purchases.

I have to agree with JC45 - Actually happened to me at a local gun shop. Call Kimber customer service and ask? They are pretty good and you may get a "Freebie" from them.
