I'm not buying this drama, sorry, no pics & plenty of bitching,......I've owned 1911s with cheap blue jobs that never rusted no matter how dry they were and how wet & salty my sweaty hands were, the only DOCUMENTED rust I've seen on Kimbers have been some barrels, the alloy, although technicaly "stainless" does tend to gather mild surface rust if not oiled propperly in some cases.
I've got a number of friends with Kimbers and they are all great guns, if I wasn't all stocked up with Colts I'd go out and by a Kimber, any old used Kimber right now.

Google "Kimber Rusted Barrels" or "Kimber rust" and see what you come up with.

You all know what I paid for it but I know what they're going for too. I'd probably let it go for $750. Know anyone interested?

I know a guy who is looking for his first 1911 and I figured that would be about the price range. I'll hit him up on Monday and see if he is interested....

I'll of course need 70% as a finders fee. j/k

Wait a minute. You got it for $650, got it all rusted up, and you want $750?

I also spent a good amount of time cleaning the surface rust off and oiling it. The oil is staying on there as it gets checked regularly to make sure. There is no rust on it now. I just wasn't wowed by the pistol enough to keep it. I can buy 2 quality guns for the same amount of money which is what I will probably do.
