Thread: No more kimber for me!

  1. #11
    My Glock was made circa 1997 and has approx. 12,000 rounds through it (probably more). It has never missed a beat! It has seen its share of crap ammo though. I inherited this gun from my father, who used it as his duty weapon in Cherokee County GA.

    I am agreeing 110% with you folks!! My Glock 31 has over 3,000 rounds thru it and it has never ever missed a beat, no misfeeds, no stovepipes, no NOTHING! I can't say the same for my Sig P220 & especially my Kimber 10mm. It's true about "Glock Perfection"

    I reload target ammo for my girlfriend's Glock 17, and still not able to give her good practice on how to clear jams - they are extremely reliable! She's run more than 1,500 rounds through it so far. (An extra tip - when you do buy a new Glock, and let your girlfirend shoot it first, it quickly becomes hers! - she was gracious enough to let me shoot 5 rounds with it).

    I have a Kimber Ultra Raptor ii which I carry daily. I wouldn't trade for anything else . this one is perfect. Few fte's during the break in period. but all is good. Runs like a clock now. Couldn't ask for a better weapon...

  8. Sorry to here about your Kimber. I have both the Kimber Ultra Carry II and the XD45. I like both and both are fine shooters, but I got to say I love my Kimber over any hand gun I own.

    I have an XD40 sub compact and It is the most reliable pistol I have ever owned including my Kimber 1911 45 ultra carry. In my opinion you can't go wrong with the XD.
    Good shooting.

I filed the damn thing all the way down to where there is barely a hair of distance left to engage when the magazine is empty. Im still not 100% confident in the gun past the 1st round. I've actually been saving my money for a new Kimber :/ I want a Pro CDP II.

    Alost forgot: I have over 1000 rounds through it, 3 Magazines, tons of different ammo and it happens randomly with each and all combinations.
    You do have a lifetime warranty with your XD. Any problems call the company.
    I am not sure if they will honor the warranty once you take a file to it or not.
    Best of luck.

    I shot my brother in law's new Kimber the day he bought it, jammed twice on me. They may be fine when broke in, but malfunctions don't help my confidence in a gun.
    Conversely, I have a Glock model 30 with 3500 rounds through it, and no malfunctions of any kind.
    That's certainly no scientific study, but these things do form a persons opinion of which gun to carry.
