Well, just thought I would post my experience with Kimber that I have had for a while now. It is a Custom II with Novak "Combat Wedge" night sights installed. The only other mod is the wooden grip panels. So far, nothing bad to report. In the first month, it had a couple of issues that turned out to be magazine related. I have five WC 47D's and apparently two had weak springs. I had one of my magazines that would cause a occasional feed malfunction and another that caused the slide to lock back with the last round laying atop the mag lips. Wilson made good on my claim and all five magazines run perfectly. I have heard plenty of "Kimber bad" rumors, stories, threads and opinions. My experience has been positive for over 4000 rounds of factory and reload ammunition. This pistol has fed every hollow point I have tried so far. It eats LRN, JHP, FMJ and plated bullets without error or issue. Maybe I got a defective one that works fine out of the box?
