Assuming you are referring to a 1911 Kimber pistol, the best way to clean it is as follows:

– First, make sure the gun is unloaded. Remove the magazine and clear the chamber. Point the gun in a safe direction and pull the trigger to release any leftover tension in the springs.

– Next, remove the slide from the frame of the gun. For many models, this can be done by pressing down on the slide stop (the lever on the side of the frame) and then sliding off the slide.

– Once the slide is off, remove any trapped dirt or debris from inside it using a toothbrush or cotton swab. Be careful not to damage any of the delicate parts inside.

– Next, move on to the barrel. Take a bore brush and attach it to a cleaning rod. Run the brush through the barrel a few times to remove any built-up residue.

– Finally, wipe down all of the parts of the gun with a clean cloth soaked in gun oil. This will help protect the metal from rust and corrosion.

Reassemble the gun and you’re done!

Assuming you are referring to a Kimber 1911 handgun, the best way to clean it is as follows:

  • First, remove the magazine and clear the chamber. Point the muzzle in a safe direction and pull the trigger to release the hammer.
  • Next, disassemble the gun by removing the slide stop and then sliding the slide off the frame. If your gun has a firing pin safety, disengage it at this time.
  • Once disassembled, begin by cleaning the bore of your gun using a brass brush and bore solvent. Run patches through until they come out clean.
  • Next, clean all other parts with a good quality gun oil or solvent. Be sure to pay special attention to any areas that appear to be dirty or corroded.
  • Finally, reassemble your gun and apply a light coat of oil to all moving parts.

With proper care and cleaning, your Kimber 1911 should provide years of trouble-free service.

First, you’ll need some basic supplies: a soft cloth, gun oil, and a small brush. Make sure to remove any magazine that may be inserted, and clear the chamber of any ammunition. Once you have your supplies gathered, you can begin cleaning your 1911 Kimber semi-automatic pistol.

Begin by running the cloth along the exterior of the gun, getting rid of any surface dirt or debris. Then move on to the moving parts of the gun, using the brush to clean out any build-up that might be present. Be sure to pay special attention to the area around the hammer and trigger mechanisms.

Once you’ve brushed away all of the debris, use the gun oil to lubricate all of the moving parts. Wipe away any excess oil, and reassemble your gun. When you’re finished, your 1911 Kimber semi-automatic pistol should be clean, lubricated, and ready to use.

If you have any further questions about ammunition or firearms, please consult a certified firearms instructor or dealer.

Then, you need to soak all of the parts in solvent for about an hour.

After that, you’ll need to scrub all of the parts with a brush to remove any residue.
