2017 9mm CDP returns from the Mother Ship

It came home Friday.

Kimber Statement:
Extractor Adjusted.
Recoil Springs Replaced.
Refinished Barrel.
Chamber Reamed and Polished.
QC Inspection.

Looked over the firearm and some interesting changes.

Kimber definitely had their grinder at work around where the slide stop meets the frame and in the internal frame.
Very sloppy workmanship! Where the part of it was not even smooth.

Today ran Freedom Munition 124 grain round nose.
All stock Kimber parts.

No change.
Stove pipes and double feeds.

Very accurate.

I'm at a loss.

If Kimber replaced the proper spring, then it has to be crummy, underpowered ammunition.

Returning to the range tomorrow with spotlessly clean gun.

If more failures its going back again.

Good luck at the range, I doubt it's your problem but I would try some different types of ammo.

Been looking around trying to find an answer

Kimber stated:
Fired 3 mag of Buffalo Cartridge Co 9mm 124 Grain FMJ.
(1143 FPS).
Buffalo Cartridge Company | BCC00016

And
1 mag of Federal Hydra Shoc 124 Grain JHP.
(1120 FPS).
https://www.federalpremium.com/ammun...dra-shok/p9hs1

While the problem Ammo has been:
Freedom Munitions 9mm Luger 147 gr RN New
(900 FPS).
or
Freedom Munitions 9mm 124 gr RN New
(1065 FPS).
and
Freedom Munitions 9mm 115 gr RN New
(1120 FPS).

So do we have Underpowered ammunition for this firearm.

Or too heavy a recoil spring.

As cousinmark pointed out in another thread:

"Hope things go better? Will be watching for the report.
I wanted to mention that I had originally installed the .38 super Wilson Combat kit in my PRO CDPII 9mm and had a few instances with standard pressure ammo where the slide made it back too soon and caught the spent casing. My pistol had been running 100% with the stock spring though. I went with the Wilson to avoid the 800 round change interval. At that time Wilson<script id="gpt-impl-0.10307878020002931" src="https://securepubads.g.doubleclick.net/gpt/pubads_impl_146.js"></script> did not offer a 9mm spring for the 4" pistols. Once they became available I ordered the 9MM spring and have had zero problems. The spring will work with the other components that came with your kit and runs $12.00 or so. I'd suggest running some tests with the stock rig if you have any problems when using that .38 super spring. Like I say it was a little too strong with the ammo I was using and messed up the timing by a hair. I believe it would be ideal with +P ammo but haven't tested the theory?
Good luck :-)"


Flat-Wire Recoil Spring, 4" Compact / Professional 9mm, Chrome Silicon, 13 Lb on order with Wilson Combat.

Sorry to hear of troubles.

DGM,
I have the CDP Pro in .45 acp and it has been great out of the box. I also put the Wilson Combat flat wire recoil spring kit in mine. Of course you are shooting 9 mm and I guess that is the rub. I feel for you. Hang in there I am sure between you and Kimber CS you will figure it out. I am curious as to why all the stove pipes
