Really stupid Kimber questions

Ok. First. Do the barrels have engraved numbers in them? Done with a hand engraver.

My Carry Pro when I take it down, when I remove the recoil assymbly I have to give it a wack. It hangs between the barrel and slide.

I bought the gun used. I'm trying to figure out if all the parts are factory or not.

I'm not that affluent on 1911's.

Thanks.

The one's I've had didn't. But I've seen other manufacturers have what looks like engravings on them with hand tools on the inside of the slide...specifically Springfield Armory.

Neither my Gold Match Target II or my Eclipse Target II has anything hand engraved on the barrel.

You may find that the slide has the last few numbers of the serial number electro penciled on the inside of this.

Barrels will list caliber only.

Normally only "hand fitted" 1911s will have the last three or
four digits of the serial number on slide, barrel, bushing &
frame.

I am confused, you need a pin to hold the compressed the recoil spring in place? then slide it out the front, lower the link then slide the barrel out the front to? or are yo udoing it differently?

Yes, they often do. Both of my currently owned Kimbers do.

Gold Match I - number etched inside of slide but not on barrel.
Rapter II - neither inside of slide or barrel has a serial number.

I use the tool to capture the spring. Then the unit should slide back and out to remove the barrel out the front. It takes a wack to get the recoil assy. out. It hangs in there. With the gun assembled there is no resistance.
