    What would a replacement slide cost

    I'm sending SWMBO's Kimber Ultra Carry II slide off for some work. I'll ship it UPS for insurance and tracking but I don't know what it would cost to replace the slide if it were to get lost.

    What would be a reasonable amount to insure the package?

    True. But is $250 to little or $1000 to much? I guess I could go for the full replacement cost.

    Call Kimber to see what the replacement cost of a slide would be. Or you can do as you mentioned, insure for the replacement cost of the gun.

    When figuring replacement cost, don't forget the cost of the sights, I don't believe they are included with a replacement slide.

    I'd just go for whatever it would cost you to replace the entire gun. It won't make much difference in your shipping costs, but will make a huge difference if you need it.

    Ditto SIXTO - I would insure it for the value of the complete firearm.
    Chances are great that if the package is lost they are only going to reimburse you for the exact replacement cost of the slide though & not the complete firearm.

    In other words if you ship an item valued at an actual "dollar value" of $50.00 and you over-insure that package for $5,000 - & the package gets lost or the contents get damaged...you ARE NOT getting $10,000 - Typically you'll be getting the replacement cost for the lost or damaged item no matter what it's been insured for.

    Thanks guys, I'll insure it for the MSRP of a replacement - $1,156.00.
