I had one years ago. I would want to see darn good pictures of the feedramp.
If old school mags have been used, there is a possibility of ramp damage, as well as just plain wear to the feedramp.

Thanks, I'll get some pictures and post them later.

I just got to the range to shoot this DW for the first time!

I have several Kimbers but all are all steel guns guns with no aluminum. They all preform very well. I think Kimber makes great guns. I just would not but any aluminum 45.

Thanks, I decided to pass on it. I think your advise of not buying an aluminum 45 makes sense as I learn more about this platform
