Kimber 3200242 Ultra TLE II 7+1 45ACP 3"
by Phillip S Date Added: Saturday 01 September, 2012
After a 80 days of layaway, I finally had my first Kimber. While the weapon operates flawlessly, I learned the hard way to inspect the weapon THOROUGHLY before accepting it from my FFL. On first inspection, I noticed the front checkering showed some slight damage on one side, with the finish showing bare metal. Knowing how hard these guns are to come by and knowing that Bud's had been out of stock since I first put mine on layaway (and still out of stock 2 months later), I decided the wear didn't warrant sending it back. It was only when I got it home that I realized the damage was more extensive, with chips in the finish on the trigger guard and handle... all on the same side of the gun. I'd be more upset if I wasn't already planning on using it as my daily carry, which would eventually show wear anyway. Just be warned, the last couple of guns I've purchased from Bud's have lacked the quality finish you would expect when buying NIB. You can look at my S&W 686 review if you'd like another example. That said, I will continue to purchase from Bud's as their service and prices are unbeatable... I'll just be a lot more diligent in my inspections.
