New from So Cal

New member from Caliornia. Just bought my first Kimber. Pro Carry II SS in .45 acp. I was looking for a change from my Glock. I rented a few different guns at the range, I think a couple of Sigs and a Kimber. After shoothing the Kimber I knew I had found my next gun.

I was a little uneasy about the change at first, having only ever owned a Glock 30 and revolvers. But boy do I love the way these guns run. I havenít shot mine yet, it is still in gun jail. I will be going to the range on Monday or Tuesday to shoot it some.

I have been reading the forums about installing the wilson combat flat spring kit, or the NDZ take down kit. I think one of those will be my first mod.

Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois Onelung. I'd suggest you read your owners manual* then clean and lube the gun before making your first range trip. Hold off on any modifications until the gun is fully broken in then go with the Wilson Combat flat wire spring kit. With the kit installed you won't need any tools like the NDZ to break the gun down.

Welcome to the forum from Northern Illinois. I completely agree with Chuck. Get it broke in and then update to the Wilson Flat-wire, you will not regret it.
