Part went sprong

Sunday I was cleaning my Kimber 10 II, my truck buddy. When I removed the firing pin stop the "cap" that is held in place by the firing pin stop that retains the external extractor went to pistol heaven, never to be found. I need to get a new one but I can't find the source for this pistol parts or schematic. I've tried Kimber, Numrich, STI, and a couple other places to no avail. They were apparently imported from BUL, but no help there. I have posted on another site but no one has any ideas other than a magnet which I have tried for 3 days. Any ideas welcome. I need at least a schematic to get a part number.

I did! They have no drawings or parts for Ten II, and didn't know who might. I was disappointed with the response but I can understand. I got the idea they didn't want to know about the problem.

I hate when stuff like that happens. Its been my experience that the only way to find something lost is to give up looking and buy a replacement. You should find the lost part within minutes after clicking the buy button.

Not Surprising If?

First are you talking about a really older Kimber pistol? Is "10" the model name?
If I'm understanding what has been lost it is the part that retains the external extractor on your pistol. If that's it? Not surprising cause Kimber has not had a 1911 with external extractor in production for a long time. About what year was your pistol made?
Have you tried Brownells?

I think you may have talked to a customer service rep without a lot of experience, not a bad one as has been suggested. You could call again and maybe get an older rep that knows which part you need but I would be very surprised if they actually had that part.
You might be better off calling and asking if it could be changed to and internal extractor? May not be possible I don't know.

Which part is missing.

I believe the gun Trigger is referring to is the "Kimber BP 10 II". It was a polymer double stack (10 rounds) frame with aluminum rails and a steel slide.

Let me clarify, you got a CS rep who did not have the necessary knowledge or experience to help you. You need to try to escalate to one who has more knowledge and experience.

In my business we call them "tiers"-- Tier 1 does easy questions, tier 2 does more complicated questions, tier 3 is the really wise, long time experienced, mature person who knows where the answer to every question is, and can help you find it.

Sorry to use the word "bad"... inadequately experienced is harder to spell.
