Two new Kimbers in one week ! A report...

After reading many reviews and reports, I was somewhat skeptical about purchasing a Kimber. However, upon seeing the Ultra Carry ll, I really wanted one. Purchase complete.
A few days later went back to the store and purchased a Micro 9 STG at a sale price. Both pistols are 9mm.

Procedure before heading to the range: Disassemble clean and oil parts as needed. Operate both slides 100 times and dry fire both (snap caps ) 100 times to break in trigger mechanism.

Range report:
1) Ultra Carry ll 9MM
150 rounds Federal 115 FMJ... Not a hiccup, No FTL, FTE or FTF
Average grouping for 8 rounds 1.5 - 2.5 inches @ 7-10 yards
2) Micro 9 STG 9MM
150 rounds Federal 115 FMJ... Not a hiccup, No FTL, FTE or FTF
Average grouping for 7 rounds 2 - 3.5 inches @ 7 yards
Trigger pull is much lighter and smoother on the Ultra Carry ll compared with the Micro 9 STG, both were very crisp to fire.

Happy with my new Kimbers

PNK, welcome to the site from Tennessee. Usually the addiction begins by buying a Kimber then the next follows within two to three weeks but 2 in one day your addiction is already in Stage III.

Welcome to the forum Northern Illinois, and you are not the 1st, nor I suspect the last person on this forum to buy two Kimber's in a week. Let us know how that 1st range session goes.

Congrats on your TWO new Kimbers from Orygun.

We all know how prolific Kimbers can be, but yours are already breeding!
