Reports on two new Kimbers.

Hi everyone. Sorry I haven't posted in a while. It's been crazy at work.
I decide to post my experiences with three Kimbers within the last month.
One is my Warrior as compared to my friends.

I purchased a Warrior 4 months ago. I've had no problems with it. Shot perfectely out of the box and didn't have any functioning problems at all.

Now my friends gets his about a month ago and from the beginning would have several FTF. I found this interesting since I didn't encounter this at all with my own weapon.
We tried to figure out between the both of us what the problem may be.
We switched mags (Wilsons) between us. That wasn't the problem untill I shot it and realized it was operator error.
He corrected it, now he doesn't have any problems at all.

Next Kimber.
Last week I picked up a Pro Raptor II. SWEET!
Beautiful weapon. Fits comfortably in the hand, easy to aquire the sights and shoots great.
No functioning problems at all. The Warrior has an internal ejector while the Raptor has an external. Both work flawlessly.

Just thought I'd post my experiences with Kimber.
I'm a big Kimber fan and would not heisitate to purchase another one.

Stay safe.
When you have walked in my shoes, done what I've done, seen what I've seen, then maybe you can criticize.

Tony, glad to hear your pro raptor is working fine. I have one as well but it has a older version of the ext extractor so I am having some fte problems. Gives me hope that the new extractor will get my bird shooting like it should. Enjoy your new pistols. Ron
