Just wanted to check in and say hi. First 1911 and first Kimber, but a long time 1911 fan. Hoping to learn everything I can about my new pistol!

Thanks

Thanks. I enjoy the camaraderie of forums without the bullying and attitude.
My first Kimber is a Stainless Pro Carry II. Pretty basic, but I thought it would be a good start as well as a good carry gun. Unfortunately, it showed up with a defect in the coating on the aluminum frame (I started a thread to keep this one happier).
Here's a pic of the bad spot under the slide stop. Hard to imagine this got past QC, but it happens. I'm sending it back, but I'm seriously considering moving to an all steel gun. Eclipse or Pro TLE maybe...

I can understand wanting to move on to another model, but don't give your on your PCII until Kimber has had a chance to solve the problem.
