Earlier Kimbers are better than the newer ones? How?
Internal extractor vs. external extractor?
Fit or finish?
I have ran every kind of .45 ammo out of my Series II Kimber. Zero malfunctions.
I also took it to a shooting class last year, and shot over 2300 rounds of ammo in 4.5 days, cleaned it once (competitor) through the week.
Again, the only malfunctions I had were 3, due to my stupidity of buying bulk "reloaded" ammo from Cabela's. The cases on some of the rounds were not properly resized, and the round failed to chamber. Had a bulge in the case.
Maybe I just got lucky, but that pistol was the best shooting .45 I ever had.
My Wilson wasn't bad either, but I traded it for the Kimber.
