Help Kimber Ultra Covert II Crimson Trace

Hi, I have the Kimber 45 APC as stated as above.
Being a newbie, I paid $1656. 12/13.
My first handgun. Not doing my homework
I paid $125 over retail at GM and was too late by 3 day price match. Then when I called Kimber
to register the pistol and it was made in 2011. That pisses me off
I blame myself. Stuff was missing out of the case.
Now the problem is the crimson trace laser. It was made in 2011.
Called them and they will send out more tools and laser stickers.
I was at the range and tried to line up the laser and a person had a
Laser bore and still had problems. He suggested taking it to a gunsmith.
i also have the Sig S MK 9mm Navy Seal(made 10/13) came with 3-10 round clips and added the rail green CT laser cool. Next on my list is the Sig Sauer's P320 or heading for another Kimber competition with 5 in barrel.

I love my Kimber feed it about 250 rounds few misfed and a hot one defective
from the factory good ammo. I see how this could be dangerous.

Any suggestions
Thanks Mark D.

Welcome to the forum from Ohio. I'm a bit confused by your post. What are you looking for suggestions for?

Wow, Mark. Sounds like that was just a bad day for buying a gun. Like you said, homework. Sorry man.

I have the laser grips on mine. They come factory preset at 50'. If you are trying to focus it on a shorter distance you will need those micro-tools that normally come with the gun.

Good luck and welcome to the forum.

I'm a little confused?
The first part of your post is a RANT because you feel you over paid for your gun.

Then your missing the Allen wrench needed to adjust your CT laser sight.

Finally what's a "hot one defective from the factory good ammo and what do you see that could be dangerous?

Yes buying a Kimber is dangerous, it makes you want more!
What you paid for your gun will make you value it more, I have about 1200 bucks into an Ultra carry II I had custom work done too,
Get the proper paper work and read the manual.
Get the proper allens to adjust the Laser.
Just one hot load? how did that get in there?

OH! welcome to Kimber talk!

As for buying a "new" gun that was made in 2011, it shouldn't matter since that gun will shoot just as well in the year 2278 if it is properly cared for. Besides, 2011 was a good vintage.

As for being shorted on parts, well that sucks!

As for paying too much, well....$125 to learn a lesson ain't bad. I pay more than that to learn not to drive so fast.

Thanks Every One on my Kimber Ultral Covert II

I was using Winchester 45 APC FLJ.
When it jammed, I was not sure how to ejected it.
One of club members came over and tilt it to the side and racked
it and the shell ejected. The brass casing was over lapping the bullet and
it was exposed in the eject chamber.

Thanks everyone and you are right. I spend $40,000 for my 10 anniversary
Jeep Rubicon with my name on my widow sticker stating especially made for Mark D. No more whining just gratitude.

The Gun Show is coming to the S.A.F.E. ACT Sate Syracuse, NY in April.
This is so frustrating criminals do not have to register there handguns or so called assault riles. But can load 15-18 40+ in there clips???
