New slide

Hello to all...I recently purchased my first kimber. It's a super carry custom(2-tone 5")...I purchased the firearm with a few blemishes on the slide. Probably due to holster wear and tear. I have looked and looked and can't seem to find anywhere that I can purchase a new slide. I don't want aftermarket and I don't want to cerakote because I assume that depreciates the gun. Any suggestions?

Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois, you're not going find a slide for your Super Carry Custom. Contact Kimbers customer service and talk to them about having your gun refinished, they can make it look like a new gun.

Yep, agree with what Chuck posted. Kimber can refinish to better than new.

For the most part I don't think Cerakote hurts the value, not for your everyday type firearm. You wouldn't want to Cerakote a Python, Classic Smith or antiques like that.

I'm sure Kimber can help.

Getting a slide only cerakoted costs $35 plus shipping both ways.
