    Pincus wasn't knocking Kimber. He was knocking 3" 1911's of any make. As JD said, slide mass and dwell time adversely affect timing.
    Pincus isn't an Internet hero, he's a well known instructor at a respected school. I'm not a groupie, I'm just not so dismissive of his résumé. I see him as one of several reliable opinions to be considered.

    I have owned three Kimbers and still have two of them (an older full size and a newer Ultra CDP II) and I have not had any problems with either one. I wouldn't have any reservations about getting another one, and probably will do exactly that at some point.

    I have a full size Kimber that I carry on a daily basis, except in the summer when I'm wearing shorts and a tank top. I have put a lot of rounds thru it over the years, and have had NO problems whatsoever with it. Just my .02.

    Yep. If you look at the feed ramp of a sub-compact 1911, it's almost vertical. That's the cause of almost all of the feeding issues. I don't honestly know why some of them are jam o'matics, while others will feed anything you give it (like my Ultra CDP).
