    List of what they fixed:

    extractor adjusted
    thumb safety replaced



    Apparently the thumb safety was defective as well.



    Who knows if they fixed it. I do know they shot the shit out of it seeing how dirty it is. I won't be able to shoot it for a few weeks though. :wtc:

    At least they fixed it, I give them props for that. Hopefully it works as it should now.

    not a fan of any "II" Kimber. What was wrong with it? Why did you send it in?

    Not so cool they sent it back dirty, but it is good that they put some test rounds through it rather than just shoving in parts and shipping it back.

    A little evidence is good, I admit.

    I'd still prefer they sent back a freshly cleaned gun and a sack of spent shell casings :big grin:.

    Most companies don't clean a gun after test firing it. They're too busy to do that.
    I wouldn't even worry about that. At least they checked to make sure it worked.

    I'm surprised they fixed it at all.

    Only cost to me was the $7 to ship it to them...although all they did was polish the feed ramp which I could have done myself.

    $7 for a polish you could have done yourself?
