With that in mind, I bought my second Kimber on Thanksgiving day. The Micro 9 SS was another beautiful gun that anyone would be proud to own. That is where the love affair ends. I could not believe how badly this pistol shoots for me. Had I read the comments on this forum, I would never have bought this thing. Seems like everything that has been discussed here is wrong with mine.
I cannot get it to hit POA. The mag falls out while shooting. I painted the sights with floro paint. Put a handall grip on it. Bought 8 round mags. Tried concentrating on my grip & trigger dynamics.
It is now in the hands of the Kimber techs. I hope they can come up with a fix. I cannot in good conscience carry this gun or suggest it to anyone. I have a Sig P238 & a Colt Mustang. Had hoped this one would join those in my carry rotation.
Sorry for the rant, but I am not a rich man & buying a $600 paper weight is not a good thing.
I am amazed at how many people buy a Micro9 maybe incorrectly assuming it is just like a 1911 but in fact it's not it is just made to "look" like the 1911 format. I think some of that is Kimber's fault.
I suggest strike a deal with factory, trade up to a real 1911 Ultra, it is really not that much bigger.
