Hello from Wisconsin

Hello all, new member here and a proud Kimber owner. While it wasn't the new in the box I wanted, I couldn't pass up the deal and a chance to own a Kimber. I'm no pistol shooter I'm learning fast, so looking to learn and find out what I am doing wrong.

In any case, I now own a Kimber tle 2 four inch version in .45.

Welcome to the forum from Southern California! Sounds like you picked up a Pro model in that it is a 4". I love the way the pro model handles and shoots.

Welcome to the forum from Northeast, Pa Mike2112.

Nice gun you choose. Read the manual. Keep it clean and lubed and shoot the hell out of it. If you limp wrist this gun it's going to fail.

If you don't know how many rounds have been shot you may also need to replace the recoil spring. Kimber recommends replacing after 800 rounds on the Pro models.

Have fun with your new Kimber, you're are going to love it.

Welcome from Northern Illinois. The TLE Pro is a great pistol, let us know what you think after your first range session.
