Please note this Q&A is designed to provide a basic overview of the firearm buying process. This does not cover everything you may need to know to legally and responsibly purchase a firearm. In addition, many states and localities have their own additional restrictions, procedures and/or policies for purchasing firearms. The best resources for additional guidance are your local FFL dealer and Law Enforcement agency.
Yes, however the physical transfer of a firearm must take place at a licensed firearm dealer.
Federal law generally requires firearms to ship to licensed firearm dealers so that background checks and other paperwork can be completed. During the purchase process you will be asked to provide the contact information or license for the dealer you would to use. Most dealers charge a fee for receiving and transferring firearms in this manner, usually ranging from $35 to $75. Other steps may be necessary to facilitate the transfer due to local laws or their own policies. Because of this we strongly recommend that you contact the dealer you plan to use and clarify their process and any fees before you purchase a firearm from us.
The details vary by state, locality and store, but in general you’ll have to complete some paperwork and undergo a background check before the dealer can actually transfer the firearm to you. The process usually takes about 20 minutes but can vary widely, so be sure to check with the dealer to clarify their processes and what they will need from you. Once the paperwork is done, the background check is passed and you’ve gone through any required waiting periods, the dealer will release the firearm to you! This completes the process and the firearm is now yours to legally and responsible enjoy.
A Federal Firearm License (aka FFL) is a license issued to businesses or individuals by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (aka BATFE or ATF) to conduct commerce in firearms. FFLs conduct the required background checks and paperwork related to the purchase of firearms.
Ultimately it is your responsibility. Your local gun store and law enforcement should help answer any questions you have, but in the end it’s your responsibility to know the laws related to firearms that would affect you.

For a hard copy
Each pistol has its own recommended spring weight and replacement schedule.
Please refer to your manual for that specific information. They can be purchased directly through our online store.
We recommend using quality American-made ammunition. Choose from trusted names like Federal, Winchester or Remington because ammunition by these makers has proven to be of consistent high quality. Our function testing is done with Federal 230 grain FMJ.
+P ammo manufactured to SAAMI specs is fine to use as a defensive round or for occasional range use only. Our pistols are rated to handle +P ammo. However, we do not recommend a steady diet of them, as they are rough on the pistol and will accelerate the wear on the gun and may shorten the life of the recoil spring.
The use of reloaded or remanufactured ammunition may be dangerous, and any issues related to its usage are not covered by warranty.
We ship one magazine with each pistol. You can purchase additional magazines from your local dealer or through our online store.
Doing any of the above mentioned things can result in damage to your pistol, perhaps rendering it unsafe to fire. Always read the manual and follow Kimber’s recommendations for optimal performance.
It is safe to dry-fire our centerfire pistols.
