    love 1911, have a couple two, three, the kimber has been the most unreliable with multiply FTF have about 400 rounds thru it, and very picky about magazines in it... Taking it to range this weekend will update the to see if it magically stops having errors..kimber 1911 small.jpg

    I own 10 1911's of different makers and this is just my first Kimber. I did a lot of research and I was not sold because of all the reported issues they seem to be having. Then I came across some information about Kimber not installing the best recoill springs for optimun performance from factory. The reports suggested that by changing the recoil spring for a stronger one would fix 90% of the issues. I took a chance and bought one because to be honest, Kimber makes great looking guns! I am still testing mine but so far, changing the spring and polishing the ramp seem to solve the problem. Hope you can sort out the issues.

    I am happy to report that the Kimber is running like a champ! I have put 500 rounds through it since installing Wolff springs and it hasn't malfunction whatsoever! If you don't mind spending an extra $7 in springs, you wont be dissapointed!
