Kiimber Pro Carry II--it's a keeper!




Just came back from the range where I put a box of 50 Freedom Munitions 45 ACP 230 gr RNs through it. It performed beautifully--no FTFs or FTEs--just pure joy. I really like the heft of the stainless frame. For me and probably most others it's much easier to re-acquire the target with gun of substance. Well done, Kimber. Must tell myself not to get too obsessed with Kimber guns--it could become a very expensive proposition...

I am very happy with mine. I bought her some Lazer grips.

Just bought my own Pro Crimson Carry II today! Went right to the range and out of the 200 rounds of Federal ball 230gr, I had 5 FTFs, no FTEs, and 3 times the slide failed to lock in the back position when a clip emptied.

Overall not too bad, though clearly it's either going to get smoothed out after another 100 rounds (that's what a few have told me to expect) or I'll deal with Kimber - everything I read says they offer great customer service.

Of course, after paying like $1200 for a brand new pistol, I'd prefer to have had no flaws. Yet I get that its just the reality sometimes.

I can't repeat often enough how much I love the unique styling of the pistol, how much of a joy it was to fire down range...
