The only thing I've done to mine so far is to quasi-dry-fire (I say quasi because I catch the hammer with my weak hand finger to avoid having it actually hit the firing pin) about 500 times. That has very noticeably improved the trigger feel already.
If you try that kit please report back your impressions!
What a coincidence. My other 45 is also a Kimber (with a very good trigger).
I've done that too, but I also recock it with the finger and you can run a couple of cycles per second and get the count up pretty fast. A glove or band-aid on the finger helps if doing a lot of cycles.
That was often reported to be the case on some of the pre-2013 models when shooting certain hollowpoints, but not the case on the new 2013+ version.
I would be interested in learning more about this . . . . .
LOL David! Me too.
Still patiently waiting for some information . . . . . . .
Not saying current 97 models aren't righteous .45s on the CZ-pattern; just reporting a historical fact.
Funny, though, my ancient Colt .45 has swallowed everything I've ever fed it, all day every day.
I believe he meant reaming the chamber rather than throating. Have you not reamed undersized chambers in the 97b to get them to feed reliably?
David at CGW has been very helpful with my conversion to SAO along with the cool 1911 bushing conversion.
Schmeky is David who owns Cajun Gun Works. He is one of the resident CZ experts. I may send him my new 97B to tune although it really doesn't need anything. His work is top notch.
Okay, good to know. Thanks.
In the 1911 design, which has no ramp, per se, throating implies a wide radius on the barrels lower edge to allow it to feed semi-wadcutters.
Obviously these are not the same.
