Ok , I'll bite for my first post here. #1 The gun was and is beautifully made and finished, absolutely no complaints. Kind of bought it on name only, I have a number of Super America rifles and do not recall hearing any complaints at the time.
#2 25 rds 148 gr golden sabers , 1 ftf
20 rds 124gr hydra shok
60 rds 124gr hydra shok
60 rds 124gr hydra shok , 1 ftf
120 rds 124gr hydra shok, 2 ftf
Gun was meticulously cleaned and lubed with Wilson Combat oil after every
Changed recoil spring just to see if it would help.
100 rds 124 gr HST, 1ftf and 1 slowmotion feed
40 rds 124 gr hydra shok , 1 slow motion feed
425 rds total fired all premium ammo.
All fail to feeds were with the slide held open about 1/4 to 1/2 inch from
closing, a light push from the thumb and the slide locked up and fired.
This was with 3 magazines , did not seem to care which mag was being
Gun is on its way back to Kimber tomorrow, even though it is 4 years old
CS Rep sent me a shipping label on their dime, nice gal.
I'm thinking it needs a good barrel throating job ala 1911. But I'll let Kimber have a go at it first.
