Honest, no offense intended but you are preaching to the choir here. Your problem has been going on for months. I saw your pictures. It did look like poor finishing. You may just not know the whole story and maybe never will.
It sounds like your dealer is telling you what you want to hear but doing nothing. It is just possible that he bought a factory second from Kimber and is just not telling you. Kimber is a dealer direct line. I prefer not to deal with them even though I own a couple Kimbers for personal use. I have never had a problem with any Kimber myself and am very happy with mine.
If you really feel the way you do about Kimber, don't buy anymore.
If you can afford 8 Kimbers, this should not be the end of the world for you. What difference does it make if it takes ten weeks to repair if you have 7 others to shoot?
I sympathize with you but... You need to tell it to someone where its going to count. Write to some gun mags. Write to JD, Moderator at DC. He says he hates Kimber and doesn't even own one. See what 1911.org has to say.
