Went to the range today armed with 100 rounds of Freedom Munitions 9mm Luger 147 gr RN New.
Fired 50 rounds and stopped.
40 of the 50 either "Stove Piped", "Stove Piped and Double Fed", and none locked the magazine back after last round.
Once again switched shooters. Same result....
All that being said ammo very accurate.
Magazines 1 Kimber and 10 from Joe's Mag Mania.
Upset to say the least.
Went to the Range counter and purchased 50rounds of Federal "White Box" 115 Grain FMJ.
Slow fire. Rapid fire. Firearm functioned perfectly!
Well I decided on 3 things.
1) ordered Wilson Combat Flat-Wire Recoil Spring Kit, 4" Compact/Professional .38 Super, Chrome Silicon, 15 Lb. This is 1lb. heavier than Kimber Factory 14 lb.
But calling Wilson to verify correct purchase.
2) The gun is going back to Kimber.
Any firearm this expensive should run on any ammo.
3) Calling Freedom Munitions re: 147 gain round nosed new ammo.
My personal feeling they are not providing sufficient charge for the 147 gain 9mm ammo.
This exact ammo has malfunctioned on 2 separate purchases.
But this exact ammo runs absolutely perfect in my Micro 9.
