New Member From Prescott, AZ

Well Chuck says I'd better introduce myself so here goes. Dale from Prescott, AZ. Just purchased my 4th Kimber ... .45 4" CDP, .45 3" CDP, Micro 380 and the new Micro 9 Raptor. All, until now, have been fantastic! Just posted on the Micro 9 site about the new one. It handles all 9mm rnds that I have, from 124gr to 50gr .... except the safety engages every 4th or 5th round. No, it's not my grip. Changed grip position, changed hands and it still happens. There is no way with the web of your hand tight against the bearver tail that recoil can cause your hand to engage the safety. Nope, something wrong with the design and I hope they will fix it when I return it.

Welcome from southern Cal.! I am sure CS will figure it out. Sorry to hear of your trouble. On the positive side it looks it will eat ammo for you. Hope you stick around on the forum always glad to have new members input. We like pictures too. I have a CDP Pro myself it was my first Kimber purchase.

Welcome from Mobile AL. I'm sure you will be happy with Kimber customer service. They certainly did with my wife's. She had a problem with the safety. When she got it back, it was almost a new gun. We've never had better customer service from any company. Hope you have the same experience.
