Got my first Kimber yesterday. Been look for a good CC and read up on Kimber. Haven't had a chance to shoot it yet. Been shooting Springfield .45 XDM for a while. Big Sporting Clays and Trap fan. Use Beretta Silver Pigeon for that. Looking forward to expert advise here on how to get most from Kimber.

Again welcome to the forum, I'd suggest reading your owners manual then cleaning and lubing the gun before making your first range visit.

Thanks Chuck. Planning to do just that. I'm going to give the stock mag a chance before I switch it out but pretty sure that's first change.

Welcome to KT from St Lou and congrats on your new shooter...

I wouldn't poo poo the factory mags just yet. I have between 25-30 Kimber factory mags that have thousands of rounds through them without any issues. The others are from Joe's Mags...

Cool Hey Ya'll!!!

Welcome to KT from Monroe, Georgia!!!

Congrats on the Kimber Pro Carry II. Great choice! I have one in .45 ACP that I really like. I've added a few items to personalize it. Just to make it more ME!! Trijicon night sights, Ed Brown snakeskin main spring housing and Hogue Blue Lava G-10 grips.

As for Kimber factory mags; I have never had a failure from one. The only one I have ever had fail was a Chip McCormick Shooting Star that repeatedly failed to feed. So I adjusted it! It has never failed again as you can see!! I now use only Kimber factory mags.

Adjusted CMC mag. Not one failure since the adjustment!!
