Defects??

Hey guys, have any of you had issues with the finish coming off of your grips? Finally got back to the range today and noticed 2 spots where it looks like the finish is coming off....

I had an issue with my Raptor grips and Kimber was very quick in resolving my problem. Take a picture because they may ask you to send a picture.

Didn't yours break or crack or something like that?

Arland you may be thinking of Zoomy, he had a cracked bone grip and they replaced the set for him.

Yes, a chunk broke off while at the range.

Haven't dropped mine or hit it with anything. Other than having it out at the range and to clean it's been in the holster. I know it's not a big issue but when you pay $600 for something you kind of want it to be perfect for at least more than a month....

Here's 2 pics

I didn't drop or hit mine either. I called Kimber the Monday after this happened and I had new grips on Wednesday.

Had that happen to a unfired Pro Two-Time after Black Friday purchase. A little oxblood shoe polish covered that issue
