Kimbers this and that. I finally figured out people who started all that chatters are the people who can't into Kimbers. So they give themselves a reason to hate on Kimbers.
So in closing, I too, am still waiting on my first malfunction.
I was on a shooting team while at the Air Force Academy, and we had about 12 Kimber target models, these guns were beat up and abused, guys who didn't have their own gear would shoot these guns, putting probably 500 rounds through each one over the course of a 3 hour team practice session. twice a week. only time they were cleaned was before a match (2 - 3 times a month)
not once did we ever have any malfunction of any kind.
about 5 or 6 of us bought our own Kimbers, I had mine worked over immediately (pictured a few posts above), but some guys left theirs bone stock so they could also use it for carry, and even brand new, theirs never malfunctioned.
If anyone has problem with Kimbers, I'd have to question either the ammo, or the magazines.
