New here and with a new Kimber, a Pro Carry II in .45. Had my first range session with it Sunday, burned through 175 rounds and the gun shot great and accurate, ZERO FTF, FTE or any other typical nonsense. Very pleased.
I did have 2 puzzling occurrences which I didn't understand for a total of 3 bobbles in 175 rounds (pretty good for a brand new gun in break in I thought) but see if you can help me here. Twice I pulled the trigger and the hammer dropped and the weapon did not fire. First time I thought I had failed to somehow load a cartridge but when I racked it a round came out. The weapon was fully in battery. No indentation whatsoever on the primer. Put the round back in a continued to shoot no problem. Later it happened again, that time I was positive I had a round in the chamber and same thing, no mark on the primer whatsoever the round fired just fine a second later.
All my spent brass showed good solid primer strikes. I thought maybe somehow I was off the grip safety or something in the middle of the hammer fall, I don't know what happened it doesn't make sense to me, however it sure "seemed" like the hammer had been blocked somehow from normal operation. The hammer falls the two times it happened sounded a little funny to me, but I had been shooting it a lot so compared to actual fire they probably would.
Any idea what I did or what happened? I am pretty perplexed.
I intend to just keep shooting the snot out of it for now it's brand new it needs to see some more work.
The "other" bobble, on the last round of one magazine the slide locked back I thought I was empty I looked down and the last round was just sitting there on top of the magazine, loose. Not chambered or ejected, just loose right on top of the magazine. Weird. That was the only feeding issue I had whole session, not sure what happened there either. Maybe the second to last round stripped the last round out when it fed, causing the pistol to lock back after firing? That only happened one time, and it was a Mec-Gar 7 round magazine not the Kimber mag.
Any ideas or input appreciated.
