New Kimber owner in SW Michigan

Hello all,

First time Kimber owner and first time 1911 owner. Picked up my new Custom II Two Tone this past Saturday. I realize it's like the lowest cost 1911 in the Kimber line, but the money I saved went to 2 other guns.

Weather is starting to improve so I see a trip to the range coming soon! Can't wait!

Looking forward to learning as much as I can and if I can offer any help to other members, I'll surely do so.

Welcome from Northeast, Pa. Your custom II two tone will shoot just as good as any other Kimber. You can't beat that gun for the money. Congratulations and enjoy it.

Another welcome from Ohio! Is that an OSU shirt you're wearing? And you live in Michigan?

Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois leemata. Do yourself a favor and give your two tone a good cleaning and lube it before making that first range visit. Also stick with the recommended 230gn FMJ ammo for the break in period.

Born and raised a Buckeye in NW Ohio. I've lived in Michigan for over 26 years and still can't stand those skunk weasels!

GO BUCKS!

Was wondering about any break-in steps.

Thanks for the tips Chuck. Just so happened the big brown truck dropped off 300 rounds of 230g FMJs this afternoon.I plan to read the manual and had already planned a field strip / clean & lube first.
