    Well, I now have 300 rounds thru my new Kimber Stainless TLE II without a single problem. This includes 50 rounds of my own hand rolled JHP's.

    I know to some this comes as a shock as there is no way possible that such a crappy company like Kimber and all their MIM parts could be running like this. Don't worry, I am sure I will have a FTF, FTE or something sometime.:rolleyes:

    It's obvious your gun is defective since it is operating properly. No problem, send it to me and I'll properly dispose of it...:D

    Of late I have been carrying one of the really, really crappy 3 inch Kimbers - I must be delusional or something...:D

    I've been looking for broken MIM parts (as research to see what parts break most often).

    Send me your handgun, and I'll try to break some parts.

    I've never had a Kimber.

    I suspect a troll.
    Such a ridiculous claim!

    Mine is defective as well, I took her out on the 29th (had to shoot a 1911 on the anniversary) and put another about 200 rounds through my TLE. Bringing the total to 572 so far.

    And again not a jam, sputter, or cough. This was my best 25 yard group with concentraited sloooow fire. I just wish they all looked like this at this distance:

    There's exactly 500 rounds through my Pro Carry II now and as unbelievable as it may seem, it has not broken yet. :rolleyes:

    Also the 122 rounds of +P 230 grain Hollow Points that I fired through it so far haven't jammed or blown up the gun yet.

    Mine is definetly broken :rolleyes:

    Why the hate? Did someone force that Kimber on you?

    300 rounds downrange? Give it a chance to disappoint you. You probably haven't even dropped it yet! ;)

    Make sure my "chunck" [sic] doesn't have Kimber stamped on it! :p
