I am not looking to start an argument here, but I have two Kimbers and have never been more pleased.

My Tactical Pro II is 6 years old with 3,000+ rounds through it. Never had one failure of any kind.

My CDP Ultra II is only a month and a half old with 370 rounds through it, and it has never had a failure either. This has become my every day carry gun.

I have never needed to contact CS so I cannot comment on that, but as far as their firearms go my first hand experiance has been great.

Two very satisfied, and, I may add, lucky Kimber owners.

Have either of you read the thread "Kimber of my discontent." ?

How would you feel if you had a problem Kimber which they

couldn't fix?

I just read that thread. I've always felt if Kimber placed as much resources in Quality Control as they do in Marketing, they would have a first class company with a first class product.
