If according to every gun expert (every member) on every forum out on al gore's internet, my NIB Kimber should have jammed, FTF,FTE,FTW, and just plain sucked at the range. Why must every forum have mounds of post stating how (use any 1911 firearm maker here, I'll use Kimber since that's what I have) Kimber needs 500 rounds to just test it out. Throw away any magazines that come with it and buy some "name brand" magazines at 30.00 + a pop. Then if those don't work, buy some other "name brand" internals, springs, what not. I shouldn't even think about carrying it till 10k rounds. Then when all that is done don't carry it in case it fails on you? What the hell are we supposed to carry if everything gun sucks and every magazine sucks and every style of carry sucks? Both my Kimbers ran perfect out of the box. The crimson perfect and the custom II 200 flawless rounds. I wonder how the hell we won any wars at all with all the crying going on about faulty magazines, crappy guns, and what not. Moral of the story, get a gun, carry it,don't carry it shoot it or not, whatever. just enjoy it.
