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!
