Master Carry Pro

I have a new Master Carry Pro that fails on going into battery, stove piping and ejecting cases into my eyes. At 300 rds now, includes Corbon ammo. I just think this is a paper weight now!! I would never use this as a carry weapon.

My older Kimber Classic Custom works flawlessly. I think that Kimber changed quality control a while back. I am a QC aerospace tech and have seen these type of problems come from management changes. I have worked at G.E. Aircraft Engines so you know I'm not a trouble maker.

I will send this arm back to Kimber for repair/retire. I do not like how one has to put a special tool into the spring mechanism to break it down.

Welcome to the forum trailboss, it sounds like your problem could be with your extractor. Here's a link on Wilson Combats site that explains how to check it.

feedramp wear

This my have been discussed before but being new to Kimbers I have been wondering if there is any documented number of rounds fired before the aluminum feed ramp wears to the point of causing feeding problem's.

v35b, I think your concerns are a little unnecessary. Yes, aluminum is a soft metal but it can be hardened, to a degree, with alloys. I don't know if the gun makers, Kimber in particular, do that or not. But, keep in mind, copper is also a soft metal. I would be willing to bet if one could cycle the same round, in the same position, over and over again, it would be the copper that gave in first.

Returned to Kimber

As an Update, I just shipped the pistol off to Kimber for repair. I will let you know the outcome, due in February. I hope they fix it because my full size is to heavy for all day carry for me in my CrossBreed belt holster with extra mag. I could use my Galco spider rig, but only in winter because I don't wear sport coats in Texas summers.

Kimber Factory Repaired

I got back my Master Carry Pro from the Kimber repair shop in January. I just got back from the range and am happy to report flawless action. I used factory and reloaded ammo. Rapid fire as fast as I could squeeze.

Kimber work preformed

1) Adjusted the extractor
2) Modified the ejection port

I now feel comfortable to carry this as a primary self defense firearm.

thanks for following.

I'm just curious do you know how they modified the ejection port?
