Chickadee, it's good to hear your Super Carry is running smooth and looking good. It is also good to know Kimber Customer Service delivers when needed.
I'm not sure I could (or would want to) find and piece together all the things you tried, so would you mind summing up what the problem turned out to be? Was it the ramp? Barrel? Extractor? All of those needing a bit of metal taken off?
failure to chamber 1st round in a full mag (slide not fully forward, cartridge at slight angle & not fully caught by extractor)
Troubleshooting & Repairs
Had others shoot the pistol - problem repeatable regardless of shooter
Tried different slide lube - no improvement
Kimber sent me a new recoil spring - no improvement
Kimber sent me a new mag - no improvement
Pistol sent back to Kimber - they reamed & polished the barrel, adjusted the extractor
Not sure if it was the barrel or the extractor, but something they did fixed it! Based on Mike240's assessment I would guess it was the extractor adjustment.
If everything seems under control, you're just not going fast enough.
