She just got back

Three weeks at Kimber on their dime, told them to bill me seeing I've had it a few years but no charge. Just ordered 300 rds of 124 gr HST's so will see how she works next week.

Good for you. I sent mine back and it returned just fine.
Shoot the hell out of it and please let us know the results.
I'm sure it will be just fine.

It's good to hear that Kimber took care of you, now we need a positive range report.

Wish Colt was as quick, waiting at least 3 months now for a Gold Cup repair.

Long overdue range report. Had 1 box of 124gr HydraShoks left , first 20 rounds yielded 1 ftf, switched to 124gr HST's, fired 50 rds getting 2 ftf then fired another 50 and quit. All ftf's were the same as before, about 1/4 inch from closing with light thumb pressure needed to close the slide. Seems no change from before. Not quite sure what to make of it just yet, kind of gisgusted with the thing right now, put it in a bag and will look at it when I have a better frame of mind. Although the rounds chamber easily I have been wondering if I should run a few boxes of ammo through a taper crimp die and try them.

Have to think maybe it just doesn't like Federal ammo....

Lube the slide rails or use some grease then shoot a box of Winchester 124 gr NATO it should be fine.
