At last

After 5 months of waiting,(and lurking here),my stainless custom ii 9mm turned up yesterday. Cleaned and lubed it last night and took it out this afternoon to put a quick 50 rounds through it. Federal 125g rnfmj. Used the Kimber mag and a nighthawk custom mag. I don't think I've ever gone through 50 rounds so quick!Every round went flawlessly. After reading mixed reviews I was prepared for a few teething problems but I couldn't be happier. After a few more packs of factory ammo,I'll try some hand loads. Love'in my Kimber.

Congratulations on the Stainless Custom II and the successful first range outing. If it took 5 months for you to receive the gun I can't imagine how long it would take to return it to the factory for service.

Wow!!!

5 months??? They must have put that Kimber on a REALLY slow boat from Yonkers to Australia!!! Glad to know that your new Kimber is working well "Down Under"!!! Always glad to see folks BUY AMERICAN!!!

Thanks for the range report. Be sure to get us some pictures. A pic of a kangaroo holding your Kimber would be good!! Enjoy shooting your new pistol. Be safe!!
