yea It was pretty wet when I bought it. Have field stripped it since and gave it a quick wipe down just getting familiar with it. Going to give it a good scrub prior to taking it out next time.
Supposed to lightly oil, correct?

I don't know what others here will say. But if you get a gun used, I'd be generous with the oil and let it sit for a day or two. Who knows what spots they've missed... When I got my Colt Combat Commander I could tell it hadn't been properly oiled in many months. So I generously oiled it (after a proper cleaning of course), let it sit for 48 hours, and then gave it a good wipe down. My Colt likes lots of oil, but not so much that it's dripping down the sides.

Hope that helps...

Right on. I shot one for the first time this summer and was amazed. I thought it was the smoothest 1911 I've ever shot... until I shot a Wilson Combat. Now It's on "the list".

That's a good model.

Kimbers are great 1911's.

Here's mine:




Since buying my Kimber, I've added a Crimson Trace Laser grip and boy are they fun to shoot.
