so about a week ago after shooting i was cleaning my kimber cdp2 and noticed a crack in the frame when i was putting the slide stop in. thought that it was just a scratch at first then turned it over and same thing on the other side in the same place. so i then took the weapon back apart for a closer look and yes cracked on both sides. talk about sad. i then called kimber and they sent my info to ship it back to them and they said that they are looking forward to fixing the issue. but it will be 3-5 weeks at the fastest and that is the part that really sucks. i understand that things happen but they always seem to happen to me. the crack is 1/4 inch in front of the hole for the slide stop and was 1/4inch long on one side and 3/8 inch on the other. this is also where the thinest part of the frame meets the rest of the frame. the more i think about it the more i think that this may be a poor joint design for aluminum. i dont fully know though. before you ask the pro cdp is T7075 aluminum frame. so for aluminum that is as good as it gets. i always changed springs every 600-700 rds. always shot factory ammo federal, winchester, remington. never +p or hand loads. weapon never fired more than 150 rds without cleaning. and yes next time it will be a steel frame. nothing against kimber, i really love this weapon from how it carried to looks and firing. i just want her back. i will let you guys know more as i find out but how they choose to fix this issue will depend on my next firearm purchase.
