RULES OF SAFETY 



NOTICE: Kimber Mfg., Inc. shall not be responsible 
for any death, physical injury or property damage 
that is the result of the proper or improper use of 
this product. 

1. Always treat this and any other firearm as if it 
were loaded. 

2. Never point this or any other firearm at 
anything you do not intend to shoot. Keep 
muzzle pointed in a safe direction. 

3. Never take anyone's word that a firearm is 
unloaded. Clear it yourself with finger off the 
trigger and the muzzle pointed in a safe 
direction. Remove the magazine, lock the slide 
open and visually check to ensure that no 
round is chambered. 

4. Always make sure the pistol is unloaded and 
the slide is latched open before laying it down 
or handing it to someone else. 

5. Safe Carrying Condition: Never carry this pistol 
cocked, loaded and ready to fire as this practice 
could easily result in an unintentional discharge. 
Do not carry a loaded gun with a live round in 
the chamber while walking, running or crossing 
any obstacle, where there is any possibility of 
slipping or falling as this could lead to a 
possible unintentional discharge. 

6 



6. Always make sure that this firearm is in top 
working condition and that no internal parts 
have been damaged as a result of corrosion, 
improper maintenance or dropping. If evidence 
of these conditions exist, have them inspected 
by a competent gunsmith prior to use. 

7. Never leave a loaded pistol unattended. 

8. Make sure that your backstop is adequate to 
stop your bullets prior to shooting. 

9. Make sure all other shooters and bystanders 
are well away from the ejection port. Empty 
cases are ejected under force and may 
cause injury if someone is struck. 

10. Obey all range rules at all times. 

11. Always wear adequate hearing and eye 
protection when using any firearm. 

12. While on the range, be sure to carry this pistol 
cleared, with slide locked open and muzzle 
pointed in a safe direction until ready to shoot. 

13. Always ensure that barrel and action are clear 
of obstructions. Shooting a blocked firearm 
can result in serious injury or death and 
damage to the weapon. 

14. Never drink alcoholic beverages or take drugs 
prior to or during shooting or handling of this or 
any other firearm. 



15. Seek a doctor's advice if you are taking 
medicine prior to engaging in any shooting 
activity. 

16. Keep safety on when pistol is loaded and 
cocked until ready to fire. Immediately unload 
and clear this pistol when shooting sequence 
has been completed. 

17. Never shoot at any hard or flat surface, such as 
rock or water. The resulting ricochets could 
result in physical injury, death or property 
damage. 

18. Never put your finger in the trigger guard until 
you are ready to fire. 

19. Always make sure pistol is unloaded before 
cleaning. 

20. Never force a jammed action. This could cause 
a round to explode resulting in physical injury 
and damage to the pistol. 

21. If firearm fails to fire when trigger is pulled, as 
a result of slow primer ignition (hangfire), keep 
muzzle pointed downrange for a minimum of 
30 seconds. If the round does not fire, remove 
the magazine, clear the weapon and examine 
the ejected, unfired cartridge. If the indent 
from the firing pin is off center, light or absent, 
take the pistol to a competent gunsmith. If the 
indent appears normal compared to other 

8 



rounds, assume a faulty round, separate from 
other cartridges, reload and continue shooting. 

22. Never use this pistol in any manner other than 
that for which it was specifically intended. 

23. Never indulge in "horseplay" while holding any 
firearm. 

LEAD WARNING 

Discharging firearms in poorly ventilated areas, 
cleaning firearms, or handling ammunition may 
result in exposure to lead and other chemicals 
known to cause birth defects, reproductive harm, 
cancer, and other serious physical injury. Have 
adequate ventilation at all times. Wash hands 
thoroughly after exposure. 

SAFETY FEATURES 

This Kimber firearm is equipped with several 
safety features which, if properly employed, can 
minimize the danger of accidental discharge. 

NOTE: Never rely on mechanical safeties to 
overcome improper maintenance or unsafe 
handling practices. Always point the muzzle in a 
safe direction. 

TRIGGER GUARD 

The trigger guard is a loop of metal that surrounds 
the trigger, protecting it from damage or accidental 
discharge. 

9 



SAFETY LOCK OR THUMB SAFETY 

The thumb safety is located on the left side of the 
frame immediately forward of the hammer. To 
operate, pull slide to its most rearward position 
and release. Then push the thumb safety upward 
until it fully engages the slide lock notch. The 
slide lock safety cannot be engaged unless the 
hammer is fully cocked and the slide is fully 
forward (in battery). To disengage the safety, 
point in a safe direction and move safety lever 
downward completely. 

GRIP SAFETY 

The grip safety is located on the upper rear portion 
of the frame immediately below the hammer and is 
automatically engaged through spring pressure. It

prevents the rearward movement of the trigger. To 
disengage, grip the pistol grip firmly. This will allow 
grip safety to move out of contact with rear of 
trigger, allowing the gun to fire. 

DISCONNECTOR 

The disconnector prevents the pistol from firing 
when the slide and barrel are not fully closed (in 
battery). If the slide is not fully forward, the 
disconnector is depressed and disengages the 
sear so that the hammer cannot drop if the trigger 
is pulled. With the slide fully forward and the barrel 
locked, a spring pushes the disconnector into a 
recess in the bottom of the slide. The disconnector 
now engages the sear so that the hammer can 
move forward when the trigger is pulled. 

HAMMER SAFETY STOP 

The hammer safety stop is a notch on the hammer 
which prevents it from falling fully forward in the 
event of primary sear failure. It also prevents the 
hammer from hitting the firing pin should your 
fingers slip from the slide or hammer while cocking 
the pistol, provided the hammer has been moved 
past the stop. The safety stop is not a manual 
safety! Do not under any circumstances use the 
safety stop as a "half cock" position. This misuse 
can result in damage to the sear, and/or 
unintentional discharge of the pistol. The safety 



11 



stop position is an automatically engaging safety 
feature and should never be engaged by hand! 

AMMUNITION 

1. Use only high quality .22 ammunition. We do 
not suggest using sub-soonic ammunition. 
Don't oil cartridges. Don't spray aerosol type 
lubricants, preservatives, or cleaners directly 
onto cartridges or where excess spray may 
flow into contactwith cartridges. Lubricant or 
other foreign matter on cartridges can cause 
potentially dangerous ammunition malfunctions. 
Use only ammunition of the caliber 
for which your firearm is chambered. The 
proper caliber is permanently engraved on 
the barrel of your firearm; never attempt to 
use ammunition of any other caliber. 

2. Always use ammunition that complies with 
the industry performance standards established 
by the Sporting Arms and Ammunition 
Manufacturers' Institute, Inc. of the United 
States (SAAMI). For best results, we 
recommend quality Standard and Hi-Velocity 
ammunition. 

3. Firearms may be severely damaged, and 
serious injury to the shooter or others may 
result from any condition causing excessive 
pressure inside the chamber or barrel during 
firing. 



12 



Excessive pressure can be caused by 
obstruction in the barrel, propellant powder 
overloads, or by the use of incorrect or 
defectively assembled cartridges. In addition, 
the use of a dirty, corroded or damaged 
cartridge can lead to a burst cartridge case 
and consequent damage to the firearm and 
personal injury from the sudden escape of 
high-pressure propellant gas within the 
firearm's mechanism. 

4. Immediately stop shooting and check the 
barrel for a possible obstruction whenever: 

- You have difficulty in, or feel unusual 
resistance in chambering a cartridge, or 

- A cartridge misfires (does not go off), or 

- The mechanism fails to extract a fired 
cartridge case, or 

- Unburned grains of propellant powder are 
discovered spilled in the mechanism, or 

- A shot sounds weak or abnormal. 

- In such cases it is possible that a bullet is 
lodged part way down the barrel. Firing a 
subsequent bullet into the obstructed barrel 
can damage the firearm and cause serious 
injury to the shooter or bystanders. 



13 



5. Bullets can become lodged in the barrel: 

- If the cartridge has been improperly loaded 
without propellant powder, or if the powder 
fails to ignite. (Ignition of the cartridge primer 
alone will push the bullet out of the cartridge 
case, but usually does not generate sufficient 
energy to expel the bullet completely from the 
barrel), or 

- If the bullet is not properly seated tightly in the 
cartridge case. When such a cartridge is 
extracted from the chamber without being 
fired, the bullet may be left behind in the bore 
at the point where the rifling begins. 
Subsequent chambering of another cartridge 
may push the first bullet further into the bore. 

6. If there is any reason to suspect that a bullet is 
obstructing the barrel, immediately unload the 
firearm and look through the bore. It is not 
sufficient to merely look in the chamber. A 
bullet may be lodged some distance down the 
barrel where it cannot easily be seen. If a bullet 
is in the bore, do not attempt to shoot it out by 
using another cartridge, or by blowing it out 
with a blank or one from which the bullet has 
been removed. Such techniques can generate 
excessive pressure, damage the firearm and 
cause serious personal injury. 



14 



If the bullet can be easily removed with a wood 
or brass dowel, (using hand pressure only, never 
"hammer" a bullet lodged in the bore) clean 
any unburned powder grains from the bore, 
chamber and mechanism before resuming 
shooting. If the bullet can not be dislodged by 
using hand pressure, take the firearm to a 
gunsmith. 

7. Dirt, corrosion, or other foreign matter on a 
cartridge can impede complete chambering 
and may cause the cartridge case to burst 
upon firing. The same is true of cartridges 
which are damaged or deformed. 

8. Don't oil cartridges, and be sure to wipe the 
chamber clean of any oil preservative before 
commencing to shoot. Oil interferes with the 
friction between cartridge case and chamber 
wall that is necessary for safe functioning, and 
subjects the firearm to stress similar to that 
imposed by excessive pressure. 

9. Use lubricants liberally on the moving parts of 
your firearm. Avoid excessive spraying of any 
aerosol gun care product, especially where it 
may get on ammunition. All lubricants, and 
aerosol spray lubricants in particular, can 
penetrate cartridge primers and cause misfires. 
Some highly penetrative lubricants can also 
migrate inside cartridge cases and cause 

15 



deterioration of the propellant powder; on 
firing, the powder may not ignite. If only the 
primer ignites, there is a danger that the bullet 
may become lodged in the barrel. 

LOADING 

Keep muzzle pointed in safe direction and follow 
all safety procedures at all times. 

Practice these steps with an unloaded pistol or 
dummy ammo until you are completely familiar and 
comfortable with the procedures. Use live ammo 
only when you are prepared to shoot. Always 
use clean, dry, high quality ammunition (of the 
proper caliber) that meets industry performance 
standards. 

1 . To release the empty magazine from the frame, 
hold hand under magazine and push the magazine 
catch which is located on the left side of the 
frame behind the trigger. This will cause the 
magazine to fall free of the magazine well. 

2. To load the magazine, place the round at 
the top (open end), push down and back 
making sure that the back of the cartridge is 
facing the rear of the magazine. Repeat this 
procedure until magazine is fully loaded. 



16

FIGURE 3-LOADING MAGAZINE 



3. Place the magazine in the magazine well in the 
frame, with the rounds facing forward, and 
push up until magazine is fully seated. A click 
will be heard when this is done properly as the 
magazine catch engages. 

4. To chamber a round, hold the pistol in the 
shooting hand without touching the trigger. 
Make sure it is pointed in a safe direction. With 
the thumb and forefinger of the opposite hand, 



grab the serrations on both sides of the rear of 
the slide and pull it fully rearward, then 
release.

17 



Do not "ride" the slide down to the forward 
position. Fully release the slide allowing the 
recoil spring to move the slide unhindered. 
Keeping your hand on the slide may cause a 
misfeed, or stop the slide from fully closing. 
Racking the slide will cock the hammer, strip 
off the top round from the magazine and 
chamber it. The pistol is now fully loaded 
and ready to fire. Keep muzzle pointed in a 
safe direction and engage thumb safety 
until ready to shoot. 

Always unload pistol immediately after use 
and before storage. 

NOTE: Our 1911 style Rimfire handgun was 
designed to function best with Quality Standard 
Velocity or Hi-Velocity ammunition. 

When cartridges fail to feed, check the following: 

A. Substandard ammunition. 

B. Cartridge overall length too short or too long. 

C. Bullet nose too blunt. 

D. Slide is short stroking. Ammo charge is not 
to SAAMI specs for .22ILR. 



18 



UNLOADING 

1. To unload, first remove magazine as in step 1 
of previous section. 

2. If all of the rounds from the magazine have 
been fired, slide will not automatically lock in 
the open position. Alway visually check to 
see that the chamber is clear. 

If magazine is not removed prior to this 
procedure, any rounds left in it will be 
chambered, which could lead to an unintentional 
discharge. The pistol will fire with a round 
chambered and the magazine removed. 

3. Since the slide does not automatically lock in 
the rear-ward position as a result of firing the 
last round from the magazine, ypu must rack 
the slide completly to the rear and engage the 
slide stop manually by pushing upward into the 
slide stop knotch. Visually inspect the chamber 
to ensure that it is clear. 

4. Point the pistol in a safe direction. Release 
slide forward onto the empty chamber by 
pulling slide fully rearward and releasing or by 
manually rotating the slide stop downward past 
the slide stop notch. Ease the slide closed. 
Repeatedly allowing the slide to slam closed 
on an empty chamber will cause premature 
wear and loosening on a 1911 such as the 
Kimber. 

19 



5. Pull the trigger allowing the hammer to free fall 
forward on the empty chamber. Do not "ease" 
the hammer down by holding or blocking it. 
Doing so can mar the sear tip which will result 
in a substandard trigger pull. 

6. To remove any remaining rounds from the 
magazine, push the cartridges forward until 
they clear the retaining lips. 

BREAK-IN PERIOD 

Before firing the pistol for the first time, Field 
Strip and clean the firearm following proper 
procedures, (see DISASSEMBLY, CLEANING 
and LUBRICATION and ASSEMBLY Instructions 
in this Manual) Kimbers firearms are quality custom 
pieces. Our firearms are hand fitted to tight 
tolerances. For proper Break-in of the firearm 
shoot 200-300 rounds of Quality Hi-Velocity .22 
LR Ammunition, cleaning and lubricating the gun 
every 100-150 rounds. 

FIRING 

Always wear eye and hearing protection when 
shooting. 

1. Point muzzle in a safe direction. 

2. Load pistol as previously directed. 

3. Grip the frame firmly, depressing the grip safely. 

20 



4. With your finger well clear of the trigger, rotate 
Thumb safety downward. 

5. Place index finger on trigger, take aim and 
gently squeeze rearward until hammer is 
released and falls forward striking the firing pin. 
Be prepared for loud noise and recoil. 

Note: This is a semi-automatic pistol and will 
eject the empty cartridge, recock the ham 
mer, and chamber a new round. It will con 
tinue to fire with each subsequent pull of the 
trigger until all rounds in the magazine have 
been fired. 

6. Continue procedure until magazine is empty 
and slide is locked open. 

7. If all rounds have not been fired and you wish 
to stop shooting, remove the Magazine, 
immediately engage slide stop and follow 
procedures for unloading previously described. 

DISASSEMBLY (FIELD STRIPPING) 

This product should be cleaned after every use and 
when exposed to dirt, sand, etc. When not in use, 
clean at least twice per year. 

Perform all safety checks to Clear the pistol 

1. With the pistol unloaded, the magazine 
removed and the hammer down, depress the 
recoil spring plug, with the supplied wrench, 

21 



or your thumb and turn the barrel bushing 
clockwise, towards the right side of the pistol 
until the recoil spring plug and recoil spring 
are free. Be careful, the recoil spring and plug 
are under tension and can fly out with 
sustantial force. 

2. Ease out recoil spring and plug. If recoil 
spring does not come out easily, remove plug 
and leave the spring for step 6. 

3. Cock the hammer and push the slide rearward 
until the semi-circular tab on the back of the 
slide stop aligns with the semi-circular 
disassembly notch in the bottom of the slide. 

4. Push inward on the end of the slide stop shaft 
on the right side of the pistol and remove the 
slide stop from the left side.

FIGURE 7-GUIDE ROD POSITION FOR ASSEMBLY AND DISASSEMBLY 



9. Pull the barrel forward clear of the slide. The 
pistol is now disassembled for cleaning 
purposes (field stripped). 



Do not drop the hammer while slide is 
removed from the pistol. 



23 



ASSEMBLY 

To reassemble, follow steps in reverse order. Align 
the barrel linkage block with the slide latch hole 
in the frame. The alignment can be seen through 
the hole and hole in the block can be aligned by 
moving the slide very carefully back and forth 
until it drops into place. Align the linkblock hole 
first, insert the slide stop shaft and then rotate the 
slide stop upward until it aligns with the 
disassembly notch. Then push the slide stop 
inward until it is properly seated. 

CLEANING 

Always run the cleaning rods from the chamber end. 

1. Disassemble pistol as described in previous 
section. 

2. Run a wet patch through the bore. Let soak a 
few minutes. ( Always read the manufacturers' 
directions of the bore cleaner you are using.) 

3. Run a dry patch through to remove loose 
crud/deposits. 

4. Run a wet bore brush through the chamber 
end of the barrel a few passes. 

5. Run a dry patch to remove the dirt. 

6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 a few times until the 
patch comes out clean. 



24 



7. Lightly oil the barrel. NOTE: Run a dry patch 
through the barrel before firing to remove oil. 

8. Wipe off all dirt on all bearing surfaces on 
slide and frame. 

9. Clean breech face and all parts (an old 
toothbrush or similar nylon brush works well). 

10. Follow lubrication directions before re- 
assembling. 

LUBRICATION 

1. Use a High Tech Gun Oil such as Shooters 
Choice FP-10 or similar quality oil (grease is 
not recommended). If oil contains Teflon be 
sure to shake well before using as the Teflon 
settles when left overnight. 

2. Lubricate the following internal parts of the 
pistol: 

a. Slide and Frame rails - Oil. Do not over oil! 

b. Disconnector on top of frame - Small drop. 

c. Barrel Hood - two drops, spread on hood. 

d. Slide Stop pin - one drop, spread with 
finger. 

e. Outside of Barrel - Oil. Do not over oil, 
spread with fingertip. 



25 



h. Cock Hammer - one drop in between the 
hammer and frame. 

i. Assemble gun. Rack the Slide 5-6 times, 
dry fire, wipe off excess oil from gun. 

j. Make sure, if you have stored the gun with 
oil in the barrel and chamber, that you run 
a dry patch through the barrel to clear it of 
the oil before you fire the gun. 

3. Reassemble as previously described. 

The key is moderation . Not enough oil and your 
gun may not function properly and lead to undo 
wear, too much oil and you risk attracting 
damaging dirt and debris to the bearing surfaces 
causing undo wear and potential functioning 
problems. All metal parts even Stainless Steel 
should be lightly lubricated because 

RUST IS NEGLECT! 

Cloths impregnated with silicone are good for 
this purpose. 

SPECIAL NOTE: The frame and slide on your 
Rimfire Pistol are Aluminium. Take special care 
to read all directions of cleaning solvents to 
assure it is safe to use on Anodized Aluminium . 

4. For long term storage or if you live in a 
particularly damp or salty area, a good quality 
rust preventative should be used, even on 
the Aluminium. We recommend Shooters 
Choice Rust Prevent or equivalent.
