+1More likely, because they're Kimbers. Ammo sensitivity doesn't make parts fall off the gun.
This.I never really understood why every agency doesn't issue Glocks... at an officer price of $398 per, and at an agency price of presumably way less than that; you get an ultra reliable weapon at 1/3 of the price of the problematic Kimbers.
Then, in 15 years, you can resell the Glocks to the local gun shop and order new ones, and recoup probably 65% of the initial investment.
Interesting that they made the information about the trade-in public, I wonder how many buyers will be lining up to buy a used LE gun at a markup that they a) know the wholesale price of; and b) know are problematic...
