      Just bought a new Super Carry Custom HD - problems, but Kimber CS is tops!

      I saw this Super Carry Custom HD in a display case and had to have it. I love the gun, however, I quickly found it shot 2" high at 10 yds. I also discovered that the thumb safety had made a arcing scratch all the way through the finish. So I called Kimber.

      There was no hesitation. The immediately emailed me a UPS shipping label.

      While I would rather not have something like this happen, I suppose it does from time to time, but I have to say Kimber's CS is the best I've experienced.

      I am kind of puzzled though as to how a gun shooting 2" high at 10 yds gets out of the Custom Shop like that.

      Well, that clenches it, you are a 1911 addict.


      Good to see you around, but I warn you, if you hang around here too much I might have to see if we can put you to work.

      BTW, Congrats on the SC HD, if I had seen that before, even given my concerns on Kimber, I probably would have gotten one of those instead of my Nighthawk and just replaced a couple of parts.

      If you decide to move that one, I call dibbs.

      I also think so.

      I don't understand why shooting 2 inches high at 10 yards is such an issue. Mine shoots high at 25 yards, causing me to use a 6 o'clock hold. It is spot on at 50 and enables me to shoot some good groups at that distance.

      The safety scratch I can understand, but 2 inches high at 10 yards?

      2" @ 10 yds is not a big deal. Changing bullet weight &/or ammo brands can effect POI more than 2".
      As for the safety, that's one of those things. Levers that move/slide over the surface of something will, in most cases, result in wear marks of some sort. Though in your case, it seems a bit too quick.

      In the past, pistols like this one were sighted-in to hit the point-of-aim at 25 yards.
      That would make it shoot about two inches high at 10 yards, and at 15 yards also.
