Not too familiar with the Kimbers, run a dry patch through it? The manual should say what to do...

Now to be serious... when i first bought my Kimber, I stripped it and gave a good scrubbing. Oiled it and then of course... loaded it. it runs fine with no issues so far after 1050 rounds through it.
