Frustrated with Kimber

First off let me say I love Kimber products and have own many of there 1911's over the years. My problem is I ordered a Kimber TLE in 10mm north of 8 weeks ago through my dealer....and well nothing. There are other 1911 TLE's 10mm out there but I am locked into my dealer because I traded with them to obtain Kimber 1911 TLE in 10mm. The Dealer says he calls and they keep saying 2 more weeks. CRAZY.
Just a Rant.
Thank you for listening.

I waited about 8 weeks for my KHX and Kimber kept telling my dealer the same thing..”2 more weeks”. For the most part I’m pretty patient so I didn’t get too ruffled by waiting. It’s funny how we have all become so accustomed to instant gratification that when we have to wait it drives us crazy.

Waited 8 weeks for Kimber to send my new Solo CDP LG (replacement for previous jam-o magic Solo). Frustrated I called CS and said. " 8 weeks! Heck I could have built one myself in 8 weeks! I'm calling Leslie!" Got a call the next day and was told my new Solo was shipped and in the mail.
Coincidence? Or case of the sqeeky wheel?

That's a squeaky wheel gets the grease scenario. They probably bumped you up to preclude more phone calls and emails. Good for you!!

Thank you for listening.

You could have avoided the whole problem by just buying from GunBroker and probably would have saved money at the same time. I know it would have saved a lot of time waiting.

I won't order a firearm without a firm "in my hand" date. GunBroker vendors are really good about it. Otherwise, I see it in the case and walk out with it in my hand. Maybe it's just me, but I have no patience for "someday" delivery dates.

Maybe If you would have been more patient the replacement one they were going to send would have been a good one....um nevermind lol

I agree a "in hand date" would be a must. After 8 weeks and still getting the run around I would be down there getting my trade in back and canceling the deal.
This day and time I can buy any gun I want from my recliner wait 2, 3, 5 days tops and have the gun in hand. I don't even consider "ordering" from a local dealer.
