Back in early November I mentioned that the front sight on my Stainless TLE Pro had come loose. As usual, I contact the very nice people at Kimber Customer Service and they sent the usual pre-paid shipping label. Unfortunately, Kimber has been very busy and were not able to return my gun prior to 12/15/16. We were going out of town on the 16th for Christmas with family. I requested they hold the gun until January. That part didn't happen and I received notification on the 16th that the gun had been shipped.
If you don't have a My UPS account, you need to get one. I signed on to my account and rescheduled delivery for today. It cost me $5.00 to have UPS hold my package for almost two weeks. So, the gun is home and I feel much better.
Now to the gun info. I returned the gun because the front sight came loose and I could not get it to stay. Kimber performed the following:
1. Inspected and evaluated for claims report.
2. Replaced slide stop
3. Replaced front sight
4. Replaced plunger tube
5. Replaced recoil spring
6. Replaced grip safety
7. Replaced firing pin
Test fired with:
3 mags of Buffalo Cartridge 230GR FMJ
1 mag of Federal Hydra-Shok 230GR JHP
Can't wait to get to the range. May be my imagination, but the trigger seems a little smoother and lighter.
