Kimber Eclipse Ultra ii locked up during shoot today.

Had been feeling rather good about my new Eclipse Ultra ii until today, have less than 300 rounds thru it. Had just started a course of fire, when it suddenly jammed in the slide locked position. The thumb safety lever couldn’t be depressed due to the plunger extending rearward under the thumb lever. I took a toothpick and could press the spring loaded plunger back into tube, however the rear of tube assembly itself seems to be drifting away from gun (I don’t know what holds this tube to frame?). At any rate, this has shaken my confidence in reliability of this model. Will try and contact customer service tomorrow.

/s/ .. :confused and disapointed.

Welcome to the site from Tennessee. I have several different Ultra models, never had that happen to me. I think a recent post had the same problem.

I tried researching several of the forums here at this site prior to posting, but could not find a similar problem, but THANKS for the reply!

Welcome to the forum Wackome, it looks like the plunger tube which is staked to the frame came loose. Contact Kimbers customer service and they will take care of you.

Must be a full moon thing? Or a production issue? There's a post a few days ago in this area where the plunger on a Raptor came "unstaked". That's an unusual thing to go wrong?
I'm sure the folks in Yonkers will get it sorted out for you Wackome, just give them a call.
