Hey, Tig . . . in all this time of thinking that the Kimber mags could not be dismantled to be cleaned, I was reading the Colt Instruction Manual and it explains it very plainly. It is not difficult to do, so I cleaned seven mags in about an hours time.



A piece of cake when you take it one step at a time ! ! !

Great! I've got a half dozen or so that you're welcome to clean for me, lol! What kind of shape were yours in after you got them apart? Did you try the GunScrubber method?

If you dismantle the mags according to the instructions, the Gun Scrubber is not necessary. The mags that I cleaned were not too dirty. Just put a 3" square cloth on the end of a cleaning rod, run it through the mag a few times, and just watch the powder come out on the rag.



I've just returned from a gun show here in Mesquite, and as we mentioned the other day about the difference in Kimber 9mm cost and 45 cal, I couldn't find any 9mm 1911s, but the price on some of the Kimbers has dropped to $765. I take it back about not finding a 9mm. There was one that was nickle plated, had all kinds of serrations on the front and back of the grip w/a beautiful tan colored wooden grip. $1300.00



I found a Hogue Grip and two more 1911 mags that fit my Kimbers and Colt. Can't wait to get to the range next week and fire that Colt w/the Hogue grip. Life is good, isn't it ? ?



Five big bullets for the fantastic CDP II. My, what a good gun.

OK, Tig . . . send 'em to me. I'll clean 'em and ship 'em right back, all at the every day low price of zero. Can't beat a deal like that.

Hey Keyman!

How can the rest of us 10,000 Kimber owners get in on that most generous offer of yours? Can' beat FREE! Just kidding, it really isn't that hard to take the mags down and clean them once you do it a couple of times and they learn who the master is! It is also a good time to check the spring and other parts for wear.

I've just noticed the ratings at the left of the message. What's the deal on that ? ?

If you get a high enough rating, it qualifies you to get tons of junk mail that you don't want and a nice Christmas card.

Can we please get this back on topic? The Off Topic Chatter thread is better suited for this type of discussion. Thanks!
