Maybe you guys can give some advice. I have a Kimber Ultra II. I have had some work done on it (pissed me off that I had to - it jammed on the last round of every magazine. The throat needed extra polishing), but once fixed it has been flawless and very accurate. However, the gun is less then three years old and it looks awful. The finish on this gun is as cheap as anything I have ever seen. For a $1,000 gun it has a terrible finish. It is scratched, it is worn,and it looks like a 50 year old gun. I have guns that are more then 20 years old that look better than my Kimber. I have a Taurus 92 that I bought in 1986 and it looks better then this Kimber. Has anyone else found their Kimber to have a lousy finish? I love the gun and worn out looking or not, I still carry it a lot, but it looks like I carried it through WWII.
