    I took my Kimber to the range yesterday and put 150 rounds of Lawman 115grn TMJ through it and noticed that some of the extracted rounds was hitting me in the face. I dont think that is normal. Any suggestions??

    Kimber is kinda picky if someone tries to fix one of their guns and later has to be sent in for some other repair.

    Would that violate warranty?

    Kimber has voided their warranty for a grip change!

    Any sort of an issue like that on a brand new gun should be addressed by the manufacturer under warranty. Take advantage of it while you have it...

    There is a reason I don't have a Kimber in my stable.
