9mm mag fell apart

I just got home from the range. While I was there I was shooting my Ultra Aegis II chambered in 9mm. I loaded my pistol with the magazine that came with the pistol, racked the slide and all the ammo fell out the pistol. What the heck? One round did chamber but all the rest are on the table. I cleared the pistol and dropped the mag body. I found the base plate and the follower but the spring is probably in Chucks back yard or half way to Mars!

My question is, has this ever happened to anyone else or is this just my lucky day? Do you think Kimber would replace it? The pistol is not a year old, yet.

Cant wait to hear everyones reply.

Denny, I've heard a lot of comments made about Kimber magazines but nothing like what you experienced. I've got 7 Kimber 9mm magazines and never had a problem with any of them. I'd definitely contact Kimbers customer service, I'll bet that they replace the magazine. Next time I take the dogs out I'll check out my backyard for your spring, if I find it I'll mail it back to you.

As I was backing out my driveway this afternoon, I caught a glimpse of something shiny. The sun was just right to reflect a tiny flash of bright. However, it was too late and I ran over it before I stopped.
When I got back home, I remember it and went to see what it was.

Dude, you want your, now ill-formed, spring back??

WOW, I think you should win the prize for most creative magazine failure! Never seen or heard anything quite like that. I'll bet Kimber will send you a new mag.
