Another Report

I always hate to brag but with everything I read on this forum and others about Kimber's don't work, 9mm won't run right and 3' 1911 are just wrong I now have at LEAST 3,000 rounds through my Ultra Aegis and 1,500 through my Ultra Raptor with every single round loading, firing and ejecting perfectly.

The last several weeks, I've just run 3 mags through each one at my range sessions with 124 grain Federal HydraShok and I'm done. I carry the Ultra Aegis every day and the Raptor is on my night stand.

I feel safe

On a side note, I have about 750 rounds through the P938 I bought a month ago and like it more and more. I keep it in a pocket in my car door and while not all that pleasant to shoot with the snappy-ness of it and it's a bit hard on the hands I've been spending more range time with it and it's also cycled everything I have run through it.

I don't buy what the keyboard commando's try to sell about Kimber or any other product. It's good that you've proven them wrong. Way to go!!

I should have added that I'm running Kimber mags in both, I pre-load mags for a week or so, starting with 7 rounds and then add an 8th a few days later. Never had a problem.

I think your results are more the norm, but most people only bark when there's a problem.

true.... On some other forums someone mentions Kimber as a possible purchase and people scream NOOOooooo

I'm a fan boy, I admit it, but they are so damn pretty
