Hey there everyone,

I'm the proud new owner of a Super Carry Ultra +. I have a few questions for those in the know..This is my first .45, owned or fired. I've fired many different 9mm and .40/.357 sig pistols, but never a .45 prior to my 1911.

My first thought is it is snappy to say the least. I expected more snap from my 1911 as compared to my FNH FNS-40. Would you say my 1911 has more or less recoil compared to other .45 pistols? I am waiting on a FNX-45 tactical, and I was curious what I should expect when firing these two very different pistols.

I also suffered from the same loose grips as many other owners who have recently posted. I used blue Loctite, so I will see how it goes the next time I go to the range.

I am open to any and all advice anyone may have to a brand new 1911 owner. Obviously it is very different from my striker fire polymer .40, so I surely could use some words of wisdom. Thanks in advance, everyone!

I also have a Super Carry Ultra Plus. Had a few minor issues with FTRTB and FTF. I also had a grip screw issue. I contacted Kimber and they sent me a small o ring to place between the screw and the grip.
I hope you didn't Loctite the screws into the screw stud. I used blue Loctite on the stud but not the screws or inner thread of the studs themselves. Your are going to love the pistol once you break it in
I stand corrected. Red Loctite may be ok on the OD threads of the bushings. Then Blue on the threads of the grips screws.
I have installed one O rings but haven't tried the pistol to see if it works.
Your still going to love the SCUP:)
