Just wanted to pass on a little FYI info for my Fellow Kimber fans, and those that may be thinking of one.
* All of Kimbers barrels are forged, in house.
* They don’t buy anything from Chip McCormick, Chip buys some parts from them.
* Kimber makes almost all their parts in house. They even have a screw machine that makes all of their own screws, etc.
* There are only a few parts that Kimber buys, such as recoil springs, which are Wolf, grips – a variety of sources, and the tritium inserts for their sights. The sight itself is Kimbers metal, but they send it to Meprolight, they turn around and install the tritium capsules and send them back.
Just a few things I thought may be of interest.
