Sorry to hear of the Kimber issues but you've got a great dealer standing behind you. I'm still trying to pay of an XSE Combat Commander (the most expensive gun I've ever bought!), something about that slide length that begs to be carried. My second SA was a park'ed Champion that ate anything I fed it with everything from CMC Shooting Stars to $7 gunshow G.I. surplus and that conical bull barrel makes it fast to get back on target - I suspect you'll be well satisfied with yours when it arrives. If not just take advantage of that warranty.
I'd toyed with the idea of getting a Kimber Pro CarryII for the lighter weight but after all the Kimber problems I've heard lately, I think I'll just stick with my Mil-Spec and Combat Commander and call it good. Besides, there's a Makarov out there with my name on it !
