Just got it yesterday and I am ready to fire it but I can't seem to get the slide stop out to perform the required cleaning before firing. Any suggestions?
Thanks. That helped a lot.
actually I found a wire looking thing that is supposed to relieve the spring tension on the barrel when inserted into a hole in the recoill spring guide rod. I just discovered this little tool by accident in th box. A paper clip could also be used. So I got it apart, cleaned it and fired it. VERY IMPRESSED. The very first shot at 7 yards knocked out the X. All further shots were very well grouped. Had no problem with recoil with such a compact gun. I LIKE IT.
I have a Kimber Pro Carry CDP II and it comes apart just like yours - the video posted below is good and should help you - your gonna love your Kimber!
That's so wierd. Mine came with this little booklet called the "Instruction Manual". It had the whole process in it from start to finish.
Please, for everyone's sake.. RTFM!
Enjoy your new pistol, shoot safe!
You actually don't have to do a full cleaning before your first shooting. I just bought a brand new Pro Raptor II and the manual just says to run a dry patch through the barrel to get the oil out before firing. I could tell the gun was oiled up from the factory. Fired 200 rounds through it and then I did a good cleaning.
I think it explains slide stop removal in manual. You just have to align the stop end with the small notch in the slide , then push it from the other side of slide so it pops out enough for you to grab and pull out.
This thread is almost 4 years old and I haven't heard of the OP since I joined.Wrong kind of thread to revive.
