Not surprised. Somebody that had one on here already posted it shot loose and came off.

That's a bummer Rick, hoping for quick turn around.

Yep, me too. I was going to spend the morning shooting the dang thing tomorrow too. No real biggie, it's not like I don't have anything else to shoot.

In my email to Kimber CS, part of my heading title was "Return to the Mothership". I got a return email from "Remi" in CS thanking me for my Mothership humor, as she was having a stressful day and enjoyed a laugh. When I scrolled the list of affected s/n's, I could see why.

The slide has been removed, ready for the RMA and the big silver bird.

Those RMA customer service positions have to be difficult talking to unhappy campers all day every day. Good on you.

Does anyone have any info on exactly what the issue is, or what the fix is? Is it just the mounting screws coming loose? Or is it something more serious? I have both an Aegis and a KHX with optics plates, so both slides are going back, but if it's just a matter of tightening the screws periodically, the whole recall seems like a waste of time.
