    Question for Kimber Ultra Carry owners

    When it gets time to change the recoil spring on your Ultra Carry do you get a new outer recoil spring from Kimber and change it yourself, get both the outer and inner springs from Kimber and change them both yourself, send the entire assembly to Kimber for them to change both springs or do you buy a new assembly from Kimber?

    I am reaching the point in round count when I will be needing to change the recoil spring, and the manual is confusing as to how best to go about doing it.

    Thanks.

    Ron,

    I just let the local 'smith' do it. I purchase a lot of ammo and guns at the same place and they cut me a lot of slack for such items.
    Mine is way out of warranty...so it doesn't matter.

    Hey Ken, thanks for the reply. I don't have a "smith" I use so will probably just have my dealer order a new recoil assembly. It cost about $45, but I figure that is not too bad every 6 months or so.
