5th. new Kimber

Hi Y'all. Texas here. Thanks for having me. Hate to start off on a bad note but I'm a little ticked. Good news and bad news. Paid top dollar for Compact CDP today. My fourth or fifth Kimber. The good news is it functioned perfectly with all ball ammo. The bad news is the trigger just sucks. I don't how else to say it. My Ultra Carry that is at least 10 years old has a trigger that is light years better than this one. About 1/2 a mile of travel and heavy! Is this the new Kimber? Thanks!

Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois scattergun, I just bought a new Ultra CDP II a couple of weeks ago and the trigger on it is as good as any on my other Kimbers. I'd give Kimbers customer service a call and explain the problem you're having with. They're top notch and I'm sure they'll take care of you.

Welcome to the forum from Colorful Colorado!

Sorry to hear about your trigger issues. I have 2 Kimbers both purchased within the past year & they both have awesome triggers. I'm certainly not an expert, but sounds like Kimber needs to be called....

Talking Hey Ya'll!

Welcome to the forum from beautiful downtown Monroe, Georgia!!!welcome.gifwelcome.gifwelcome.gifCity of Monroe.jpg

Congrats on the Compact CDP!! For your trigger problem, I would go through the recommended break in procedure and re-evaluate the trigger after that. If you are still dissatisfied with it, then it is time to give Kimber Customer Service a call. Those folks have made a name for themselves by dealing with the issues of customer's pistols. Their goal is to make the pistol function to your satisfaction. If they have to work on it, it will meet your expectations when they return it!!

In the mean time, enjoy shooting your Kimbers and be safe!! If you have 5 Kimbers, why don't you send me one? You'll never miss it!!! My Pro Carry II needs a friend!!! Just address the package to:

Welcome to the forum.

Trigger work is pretty easy, for someone that knows what they are doing. The set screw can be adjust for the pre-travel. For pressure adjustment, I'd take it to a good gunsmith and have them take it down to whatever safe poundage you prefer. Or, maybe it's just gritty and needs a complete strip & clean.
