About 2 months ago I bought a used Kimber Pro Carry II at a large sporting goods store. It was priced at $550 but I got a discount of 10% because of a used gun sale they were running. They applied a couple small discounts to the remainder and I wound up paying $490 for the gun. This particular sporting goods chain now puts trigger locks on all their guns and will not remove them for inspection of the gun. So about all I could inspect was a few minor generalities and the feed ramp. Since the ramp is integral on this aluminum frame I made sure it was OK. Gun was about %90 because the whole thing is matte black and the finish was a bit thin on the slide. I get it home and then I see it has an external extractor. I guess I missed it on inspection cause I wasn't looking for it and I'm an idiot. Turns out Kimber tried external extractors on some models around 2000. Lot of problems with the design and a lot of complaints from owners. After some research I find out Kimber abandoned the ex extractor and went back to the standard extractor. If you had a complaint about the Ex Extr you sent the gun back to Kimber and they replace the whole top end with standard extractor gratis. I call Kimber and they want $275 for that repair / replace now since the freebe deal is no more. I brought the gun back to the store and they recite their no return policy. The place is right down the street from me and I buy a lot of guns and stuff there. Finally they tell me they'll send it to their gunsmith, which they apparently did. I get a call from the store 2 weeks ago and they tell me their gunsmith wants $600 to fix the gun. They won't pay $600 to fix it but they'll send it to Kimber and pay the $275 "is that OK with me" they say. So with any luck the gun may be on the way to Kimber for the repair. Wish me luck.
