Headed to the range

Field strip showed that it had been test fired. No gunk, found it pretty dry.

This is what I found in the frame rails.
Found my mood frame just a little smutty. I cleaned her up good.
Got her all cleaned up and applied one drop on all rails frame and slide. Let's see how she do.

Most NIB firearms were test fired before casing and shipping and very seldom cleaned from my experience and that does include Kimber.

My other Kimber's were were fired and not cleaned as well. I don't have a problem with that at all. I am happy they do.

Wilson and Brown fire close to 90 rounds from each gun they make before they ship them out, a mix of hard ball, HP and wad cutters. There is a procedure they go though, rapped fire, limp wrist, mag removed, pretty intensive. Wilson also recommends that for the first 500 rounds DO NOT take down the gun and clean it. They are not worried about the gun not functioning dirty.

If you search Larry Vickers or Wilson Combats vids, there is one on a gun they built for Larry. Found the testing phase to be very interesting.
