Kimber Pro Crimson Carry 2-rust

After a week or so of carrying the pro crimson Carry 2, Iíve noticed that on the side that faces my body in the holster, the slide has droplets of water/sweat/whatever and a little bit of surface rust has appeared.

Anyone else have this occur on this pistol or any pro carry?

My rig is milt sparks summer special II

Short answer is "no." Do you live in or near a salt water environment?

Welcome to the site from Tennessee.


I live in SW Florida about 20-30 mins from the coast but not anywhere I get ďsalt in the airĒ.
Never happened to me before so Iím kind of at a loss.
I picked it up about a week ago, cleaned it well, oiled the outside and the rust appeared after a long day, and then I got the rust cleaned up, oiled it again with the old CLP with Teflon and massages some tetra gun grease into the slide as well. Not as much has appeared but some.
