    If you ever decide to buy a Kimber send me all the junk parts... In Fact, this goes out to all of the people who read this post... Ill take those cheap, brittle, easily breakable MIM parts...

(little over excitement) i will have to test it though to be sure, as i have done lots of rifles. and yes the distance was 50yds +
    have the target if you want it, shot low and left consistant, but groups none the less.

    Did you try 45 cal shot shell to check grouping?

    You wanta be careful with any gun that if you pull the trigger may fire more than once,there is a guy being prosecuted for having a machine gun due to IIRC a worn sear,he borrowed the gun to shoot and at the gun range the weapon fired a short burst LEO at the range approached him and his weapon was confiscated ATF ran tests got it to fire more than 1 shot with a single trigger pull and DA said under the law you have an automatic weapon and filed charges

    Please, know what you are talking about (Yes, this means the stock firearm in question as well) if you are going to spout out suggestions.

    Just my opinion but I would get rid of the MSH and get a steel one.

    Are you waxing sarcastic and insulent, simply because I didn't suggest pulling the MSH (if plastic, I certainly do), or because I called a spade a spade and impuned the substandard, Indian MIM parts in your gun? I'm not saying the guns are patently bad, depending upon intended use, nor declaring endemic issues. Simply, that when considering modding the gun, use quality parts. How that speaks to knowing, or not knowing of whence I speak, seems unclear.

    I'm sorry, but I can't send you all the parts I've pulled out of Kimbers, Springers, Armscors, Norks, Para's, Taurus' and others of similar pedigree. They all go straight in the circular file. However, I know of several pistolsmiths who do keep them, albeit in a different drawer. Check around, I'm sure that at least a few will take you up on your request to rehome. Best of luck.
