Waiting on delivery

Hi Everyone-I'm new to the forum here but was wondering how long it takes to get a new Kimber. I ordered a stainless 2 target 45 cal 5 Dec 2015 and still have yet to see it. The dealer can't give me a straight answer and time for my purchase permit runs out in early May. Am I being unreasonable or is Kimber backlogged due to demand? Any advice would be appreciated. Dave

your LGS may have to put in a certain size order to Kimber before they will ship. I recently had a lgs tell me they had to order a certain dollar amount before Kimber will ship. I am in Commiefornia so I cannot tell you if it the same in every state!

Welcome to KT from Northeast, Pa NJDIGGER. I find when it comes to buying a Kimber your best bet is shopping online. You can save hundreds compared to your LGS. Chuck found your gun on GunBroker and I bet it's cheaper.

NJDIGGER, I have found it easier to locate and buy Kimbers through
Gunbroker and the price is better too. Good luck

Thanks for the tips guys. My first Kimber and my research indicates it's a quality item. So I guess I'll give it more time. Going forward I'll purchase out of state and transfer to lic. ffl dealer(what we have to put up with in NJ!).

I ordered my Stainless II Raptor through my LGS and got it in a week. Each authorized dealer gets an inventory list each Friday afternoon with the inventory that will be available the next week. Pin them down, if they don't tell you I suggest you go elsewhere.

Njdigger and dynhd1 welcome to the site from Tennessee. I don't understand why anyone in this day and time in our high tech computerized world would wait for a local gun shop, pet store or whatever product you are needing to get your item.
I love GunBroker, bought a lot of guns from Gunbroker sellers, it is quick, easy, they have what you want, almost always cheaper than LGS, if seller is not in your home state it saves State and local taxes. A couple of shipping issues were caused by the United States Post Office, nothing lost just misrouted.

Buy yourself a Stainless and or a RCP on GunBroker or GunsAmerica and get to shooting!
