I do not think it's too much to ask with today's manufacturing processes and I will give Kimber the chance to make it right.
I really like the S&W 1911 E-Series with the round butt, scandium frame in black.

You can't compare full size 1911's to these smaller guns like the Micro Carry and M9. The design is well over 100 years old, the design has been refined and all the problems have been worked out. These smaller guns are new to the market and still having the rough spots worked out. 2000 trouble free rounds in a full size 1911 is nothing, I have many Kimbers with over 5,000 rounds some with over 10,000 and one at 26,000+ rounds. It's simply a matter of keeping shot records, keeping them clean and doing simple maintenance like replacing springs when called for.

That's a serious mark on the nose of that round, wow.

I'd be calling Kimber CS ASAP

Cant speak for everyone but this weekend we shot for the first time two Kimber Micro 9s and everything functioned perfect. I have a CSE model from Cabelas and our oldest son has the desert tan with the laser grips. I cleaned mine before taking it out, oiled it and put a thin coat of grease on the rails, I dont think our son did anything to his as it looked dry to me but he's 25 and its his. I put 100 rounds of PMC Bronze 115gr and Im not sure what he was shooting but some of it was steel cased and some of it was brass. Over all a great day!

Hi Iím new to kimber handguns and just bought a micro9 equinox and I am having the same problems. I was using 115gr blazer brass and 115gr aluminum ammo and just at random the round would nosedive into the feed ramp and I have to eject the magazine to correct it. I shot 25 federal hst hollow points and they did not have that problem but then again not every full magazine of the fmj would do it either it was totally random. The magazines are extremely tight to load the last two rounds. Does anyone think it might be the magazines?

I suggest you continue to shoot the gun and get it broken in before attempting to fixing anything. It's just my personal preference but I find shooting heavier rounds like 147gr. seem to help get through the break in period. Most people shy away from them calling them "snappy" but they do the job. I wouldn't worry about playing with SD ammo until the gun it completely broken in.

As for loading the magazine I suggest you get an UpLula they save your thumb and make loading magazines a breeze. I use mine to load my .380, 9mm, .45 and .460 Rowland magazines.

Thanks for the reply and suggestions, the 147gr. sounds like it should work. But how many rounds do you guys consider a good break in period?

I fired mine for the first time a few days ago. I fired 49 rounds of 115gr. Remington. Toward the end of the session I had two FTE while fast-firing. The rangemaster, who was observing, felt that I was limp-wristing. This is probable, because when I was first firing I was expecting snappiness and used a very firm grip. When I found the recoil mild I relaxed my grip. Too much, apparently.

I would have just replace the ammo. Tons of choices on 9mm and when you find the one you like, then start making an inventory of it. My range ammo is the sig fmj 115 or 124gr works flawlessly. Actually I wouldnít care about it not unless thatís your defensive ammo. If your dedicated defense ammo doesnít have that issue, then youíre gonna be fine. Thatís my opinion.
