New TLE/RL II owner

I recently purchased my first Kimber and first 1911 style handgun. It is a TLE/RL II in 10mm. Initially had a little trouble with it: would not consistently load any ammunition, tried different magazines, different ammo, so I took it to the dealer and he experienced same thing where about 1 out of 5 rounds would correctly load, so he called Kimber and they said to send it back, so it was sent back and now that it is back I am very pleased with it. The included work order indicated they reamed and polished the barrel, refinished the feed ramp, and adjusted the extractor.
Overall I am now very pleased with the Kimber and their service, I have a little over a hundred rounds through it from this past weekend and look forward to many more.
PS: Since the photos were taken it has gotten a wipe down with a silicone cloth.

Cool Hey Here!! (It's a Southern Thing!!!)

Welcome to KT from beautiful downtown Monroe, Georgia!!!

Congrats on the new TLE!! Nice looking pistol!! Really like the grips, too. Are they original? The catalog shows black and green G-10s. I'm kind of fond of blue grips on black pistols. I have a Pro Carry II that I installed a set of Hogue Blue Lava G-10 grips on. It looks very similar to your TLE.

Glad to hear that Kimber took good care of you and your pistol. They definitely stand behind what they build. In addition, there Customer Service people are some of the best in the industry.

Thanks for posting the pictures. We like that kind of stuff. How about a detailed range report with some target pictures? That would be nice to see also.

Shoot the hell out of that TLE, enjoy it and be safe!! Looking forward to hearing more from you in the future. We have a nice pack of folks here. Willing to help and always ready to have a good time!!

Yes, the grips I added on my own, it did come with the green/black ones. I'll have to take pics next time I'm at the range. Thanks everyone and I am definitely looking forward to more range time with this.
