Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois JMalmy, congratulations on your first Kimber. If the gun is new clean and lube it before taking it to the range for the first time. Use the recommended ammunition 230 gr FMJ and break the gun in before considering any upgrades or modifications.

Smile Great Purchase

I would shoot it first before making any upgrades. Feel it out. Keep a journal of how it shoots, what type of ammo (grain, bullet type, etc). Once you put a few hundred rounds through it you will get an idea.

Welcome to the forum from StLou. My girlfriend just hit the 250 round plateau today without a single issue. It's a wonderful firearm so get out and shoot that Kimber and give us a range report..Good luck and enjoy.

Will do guys! The gun has about 150 rounds through it. So im guessing pretty much brand new. I have heard some stuff about springs and internals or whatever. I am only over curious because this will be my 95% carry gun here in the (HOPEFUL) near future. I was supposed to get myfinger print report this wk. Have a XD40sc coming wednesday but bought this kimber for my absolute carry gun. so yeah lol

thanks guys

So I'm assuming you didn't buy the gun new, did you get the owners manual with it. If you did then the answers about spring replacement etc. are in it, if you didn't then you can download a copy from Kimbers website.
