unreliable kimber 1911

i just recently purchased a kimber custom II 1911. i fired 9 rounds out of it and it jammed twice. when i try to chamber a round it jams as well. kimber told me that this is normal for "high end guns". i tried different ammo and different clips, with the same results. kimber told me the bugs will work themselves out. is this customary for a high end gun. a gun that doesn't fire is a worthless gun. a brand new $800 gun should not malfunction. how do you "break in" a gun that doesn't chamber a round, aand since when is this normal???

Hey 13 stars, Hope you have your problem remedied by now........I shoot Kimbers in both .45 & .38 for competition. NEVER have I,nor would I accept a gun that will not function ! Neither should you .
I saw your post and couldn't help but sympathize in that I finally tried a plastic XD in 9mm. The darn thing is a POS,despite most folks telling me how great it is !
It is in Springfield's "fix it" shop now and either it works or it "hits the road". May be a philosophy for you also ! Best of luck !
