I had a cook out yesterday for my son, his wife, and a friend from work. My friend brought his new prize, a $2,000.00 Kimber Custom to shoot on my range. To be honest, my Glock 21 and Colt MkII Series 70, looked like a Raven's Arms next to it. The thing is beautiful. We shot on my 25 yard range. The Kimber shot 1.5" groups with 230 Grain Fiocchi ammunition. I got 3" Groups with my Glock, 2.5" groups with my Colt. The difference was my Glock and Colt went off EVERY time we pulled the trigger. The Kimber failed to go into battery once every magazine, usually about the fourth or fifth shot. Then we switched to Golden Sabre and again the Kimber outshot my Glock and Colt. Of course that was when it didn't need a "bump" on the slide to go into battery. My son and I just looked at each other. No one want's to hurt another person's feelings, but would you trade an inch and a half accuaracy for a pistol that does not work? The Glock and Colt shot 3 inches at twenty five yards. How big is a man's chest? I tried, tacfully, to tell my friend not to carry this gun for work. These gun's are target gun's, not combat guns. I'll take an out of the box Glock, or Makarov anytime. The Kimber's tolerances are just too tight for combat.
