Kimber Super Rimfire



Log in to see fewer ads
I bought a SRF about 7yrs ago and though I liked it very much it has stayed in the safe for the last 5yrs. The problem is it doesn't have last shot hold open.
I hate hearing it snap on a empty chamber so I just don't shoot it.
I was wondering if anyone has heard of a fix on the these awesome pistols ?

Count your shots, then you will know when the magazine is empty.

Are there really only four people who own this gun?

The Cierner conversions that Kimber based their 22 conversion on is the same way. My best guess has always been that the alloy slide can't handle the battering that it would receive from hitting the slide stop.

So can the firing pin be damaged by "dry firing"?

I don't think so. The way the breech face is indented for the cartridge base the firing pin will not reach the barrel face.
