Hey eveybody I have a question:

I just completely disassemble my 5" Kimber. Now the trigger seems to have a fair amount of play/movement in it. It wasn't there before. It moves side to side or up and down.
Everything still functions correctly. Didn't actuallly fire the gun with live ammo, but with snap caps everything seems to be fine.

Any ideas??

Unless you did something far more drastic than simple disassembly, the trigger should not loosen up just from taking the gun apart. Perhaps there was oil or grease in the action and you cleaned it out, allowing the parts to feel and sound loose where before the oil cushioned them.

You could also have gotten the flat spring in wrong, and not have enough tension on the trigger, but that should be easily felt, and the grip safety should not work right.
