Wow! That is a sweet looking piece right there!
Great looking piece, she should serve you well! Mine just topped 5000 rounds, and it's still going strong!

I'll post a range report this week.
As to the baloney that often is found on the net I offer my five year old Kimber Eclipse which has never had a problem. Go figure!

As said before in this thread - shoot it with the ammo uyou want ti carry and use quality mags. After a 300 to 400 round brak in and a good cleaning and lube - you should be good to go.

Excellent, excellent acquisition!! Should really be a pleasure to shoot. My three Kimbers are outstanding handguns. As has been said, just follow the break-in instructions and you should be golden. BTW, I use Wilson Combat mags in all my 1911s. Nary a hiccup!

And um...yes -- yes you WILL regret it. The only sensible thing to do really, is to give it to me. That will save you the heartbreak and regret. I'm just trying to help. ;)

I had one regret when I got my first Kimber. That would be the urge to buy more. Now I have three.
I lubed them a tad heavy on the slide rails right before shooting during the break in period. All has been well since.
Enjoy! She's a beautiful piece.
