I have been reading from this site using Tapatalk for about 1 1/2 years but never really joined until today. I have been a member of Calguns.net for over 8 years, but if you have a Kimber go to who know Kimber. So here I am. I currently only have one Kimber and when I was purchasing it I knew it had to be my first 1911. I went to several LGS and most of them just kept trying to get me to purchase something other than Kimber (But I stuck to my Gun - Pun intended) and went with a full size Custom CDP II. I've had it now for just over 2 years and have put about 1200 rounds through it, but I seem to be having the same issue as many other people here (F2F). I have attempted to fix this issue in a number of ways but it still has not resolved my issue. Here are the steps I have done:
1) Switched to Wilson Combat model 50 mags
2) Switched to Kimber KimPro Tac Mags
3) Replaced Guide Rod and Spring with Wilson Combat Bullet proof Rod and Flat wire 20lb spring
4) Replaced all springs
I have not attempted to replace the Extractor yet but it seems like the only then left to do.
I love this gun and everyone that shoots it loves it as well, but as of now it seems to be getting worse as the other day I went to the range and went through 80 rounds and it jammed about 15 of the 80. One was so bad that I could not rack the slide until I removed the magazine.
Any insights would be helpful.
By the way I like the KimPro Tac mags better than the Wilson ones.
