    Congrats!:cool:

    I just picked up a Pro TLE last weekend. I'm very impressed with the quality and performance of the gun. If all continues goes well, she'll become my primary off-duty pistol

    Kimber makes a great 1911 and I have owned two for years and never had a problem. Might be a good time to consider reloading and discover another fun hobby that saves you money.

    Ok, I have shot about 400 rounds through it now and had some questions. first, is it normal for the barrel hood to get scuffed up? it functions fine, just wondering if that's normal? Second, I was reading that i should change to recoil spring evey 800 rounds, is that really necessary?

    Greetings,
    Yes the bbl hood will get scuffed and with the 7 1911's that I own ,all show "wear" or "scuffing"on the hood.As far as the round count before changing recoil springs,call Kimber and ask.That's what I did with my Les Baer.Staying with what the manufacturer recommends works in your favor if you ever need to use the factory warranty.

    Regards,
