Default Ordered 7/31, E-mail 8/13, Recvd 8/17 YES!

I think I was lucky enough to get one of the last "Rusty" Kimbers.
Mailed in my order end of July, and was notified by e-mail Friday the 13th that it was ready for shipping. Picked up by FedEx Monday, and at my door Tuesday.

Serial No. GM000486. Very light scratch on stock butt. However, significant surface rust on ejection hooks, and inside the bolt. Sights had touches of surface rust on Rear adjustment dials, and on the tightening knobs/bolts. Also a light speckling on muzzle end.

I can't believe how big this rifle is. I knew it was 10.5 lbs, but you just don't appreciate the size of this thing till you heft it up. Needless to say, I cleaned the barrel and bolt and fired off about 100 rounds, no problems. But then I realized that the surface rust on the bolt ejection hooks might mean bad news inside, so after shooting, I cleaned the barrel again, and took apart the bolt. Soaked it in some WD-40 (all I have at this time) and got most of the surface stuff off. At least the swatches were wiping clean.

My question is, should I buff/polish the bolt i.e. with a polishing wheel and dremel tool?

Should I try to take apart the trigger group and clean that out?

Thanks in advance.

Great group of people here, really made my decision to get one of these easy. And thanks to the great people at the CMP.

I've been out of town for a couple days and get home to find a FedEx tag on the door. Nothing on eStore or cc charge at noon on the 18th to delivery attempt today. I'll have to wait 'til evening to pick it up. SN 80. Suppose they are counting down with the serial nos.?

What happens if a rifle arrives and I'm out of town two-three weeks? Will it be returned to CMP and will they send it later?

Best bet is email customer service with the dates NOT to ship your rifle. Have them hold it until you're ready to recieve it.
