Hello from Florida

I just found you guys. I used to shoot my Dad's 1911 when I was a kid and hadn't touched one in 40 years. A friend let me shoot his at the range a few years ago and I remembered how much I liked it. I bought my first Kimber a week later and now have 4. I have other guns and as my Login indicates, I like'm all. I'm not big on wheel guns but thought if Kimber makes it it must be smooth so I tried a new K6s a few weeks ago. Hence my search for some experts... Stuck cylinder straight out of the box. Sorry for sour grapes on my intro but I'm not happy with the 5-7 week turn around time I was given for a new gun. I was just looking to see if anyone else had the same problems and it looks like there may be some issues with that gun. I hope to learn more about the 1911's from you guys. Thanks!

Welcome. I've been interested in that gun, but I've never seen one.

Welcome to KT.

Seems cylinder problems are, sadly, not uncommon.

Welcome to the forum from Northern Illinois. There have been a couple similar issues reported with the K6, but Kimber Customer Service is great and I'm sure will make this right for you.
