The Third Time is NOT the Charm!

Still jamming. I think it has to go back to the Mothership. I'm calling Kimber when they open.

Cost of bubba barrel and trigger job shouldn't set you back more than $300 for Kimber to replace.

Just kidding.

I recently sent my Solo back to Kimber. It was preowned and the original sale was back in 2012 I think. No questions or BS. Turn around time was less than a week after they received it. My one-time experience with Kimber service could not have been easier or faster.

Be sure to report back. Cheers.

Geez Chat, I read the first line of your reply and it trigger a thirty point rise in my blood pressure. I instantly got dizzy and fell out of my chair. My girlfriend heard the crash and came over to attend to me. Well one thing lead to the next and she took my hand and led me to the bedroom. I couldn't shake your comment out of my head and a horrible case of ED resulted. She got angry and left me! Even worse, she took the dog. Only later did I read the part of your post that said, "Just kidding." Here I sit alone, lump on my head and not even a dog to kick. Thanks buddy.

Just got got an email from UPS telling me my pistol made it back to the mothership. The anticipation is killing me. Will a Kimber gunsmith pick the thing up and work on it or will my "bubba kitchen table gunsmithing" cause him to drop it like a hot potato and shout in an unmistakable New York accent, "No friggin' way!" Stay tuned.
