New guy

Not only am I new to this forum, I am new to forums. I have recently Joined the Kimber family with the purchase of a Pro Carry II.

My main concern with it arose yesterday, with an accidental discharge (AD). From condition one while in the process to clear the gun, when I took the slide safety off it fired. Has anyone had this problem? I am 99.44% no finger was on the trigger.

Welcome to the forum from middle Tenn. Never heard of this on any 1911 from condition one. I suspect your finger was on the trigger and you just didn't realize it. Good luck going forward, be careful.

Welcome from Mid Michigan. For added safety when clearing a cocked and locked 1911. Do not engage the grip safety when clearing the chambered round.

Eeek! So no one was hurt but something must have gotten damaged! I hope you were outside when it happened. Wow, welcome to the forum!

Welcome to KT from Northeast, Pa.
If you didn't touch the trigger than you should be calling Kimber CS tomorrow. Good luck and be real careful.

Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois Hawgman86. I don't know what your level of experience with a 1911 is. If your new to the gun then I'd suggest you have someone like a range officer check it out. If it proves to be faulty then give Kimbers customer service a call.

Empty or loaded you never point a gun at something that you're not willing to destroy.
