Kimber Micro 9 Raptor issue

The slide lock on my Kimber Micro 9 Raptor is prematurely locking the slide back with ammo still in the magazine. I tried several different magazines, ammo and checked my grip to make sure I wasn't bumping the slide stop.

Anyone else had this issue?

Hi CPL, it may be a slide stop issue...If you tried different mags as well as ammo?

Yeah, I it happened on four different magazines, various FMJ, Speer Gold Dots 124gr and Sig Sauer V-Crown 147gr.

Slide stop groove might be on top of the spring.

Thanks, I may of had the spring under the slide stop. I torn it down for cleaning and made sure the spring was in the correct place when reassembling it. Iíll take it back to the range tomorrow and see if that may of been the issue.

Went back to the range today and I'm still having issues with the slide lock prematurely locking the slide back with ammo still in the magazine. I guess I'll call Kimber and see if my slide lock can be replaced.

Are you sure that you aren't hitting the slide lock? It isn't uncommon, on such a small gun.
Let someone else run it, to see if they experience the same thing.
