Kimber called this morning

My good buddy at Kimber's customer service called this morning and offered to send me a new gun in exchange for my old Solo. I elected to go back with the same thing a CDP LG seeing as I have 4 holsters, 15 magazines, 2 sets of springs. Hopefully I will get a good one this time. If not I will pester the Kimber reps, and rely on my Sig!

Wishing you the very best! There were many "firsts" in my life that failed" but I kept my chin up. Many of those failure I said to hell with it and went for a second course. Glad I did as things have a way of working out.

Called Customer service this afternoon to check on the progress of the replacement Solo. It's been ten days since they offered me a new one.
It sounds like they put in a new order at the factory because none in stock. The rep told me they have the new serial number but it has not been produced yet. Should be sent in a week or so.
Also got a RMA number for my Ultra CDP II .45 and sent it back this afternoon was told it should be a 4 to 6 week turnaround time. Went to the range yesterday morning before the heat set in here in Vegas.
The slide has a hesitation in the return when cycling.This has been recurring the last few times at the range, and yes it's been cleaned and lubed after every range trip. The rep had no solution and asked if I would like then to look at it

OMG, that's a lot of issues on multiple guns. Are the winds blowing sand? J/K, but we've owned four Kimbers and have not had any functional issues.

E-mail from Kimber my replacement Solo has been shipped! Should arrive on Tuesday! Lets hope they have made some changes to the assembly line for the better.
Meanwhile my Ultra CDP II is on its way back to Yonkers for some adjustments. The two should meet someplace in the midwest over the weekend..........
