Micro 9 on its way...

I finally pulled the trigger (pun) and have a new Micro 9 inbound, USPS says it'll arrive today at my LGS. So I imagine by the time they call me it'll be late tomorrow or Friday. I got what I felt was a pretty decent deal on a Desert Tan (LG) for $579 shipped. I also ordered an N82 holster and a Sig P938 7rnd magazine. Will work the magazine to fit the Micro 9. I liked the style and fit of the Sig mag better than the Hogue plus it gives me another mag.

1st time owning a brand new gun from the factory, so I've been reading up on break-in procedures, etc. Basically plan to field strip, clean, polish the feed ramp, work the slide back and forth quite a number of times, dry fire (or use dummies) a number of times, take it to the range, become acquainted with her with many rounds.

If you have additional helpful information don't hesitate to share.

You gotta helluva deal. Practically stole it. That's the same one I was looking for here in town when I decided to buy a Micro 9 but no one had it and I settled for the SS LG. I had to give 629 for it.
Wanna trade? Straight across? Mine is already broken in so that will save you a lot of work, time and $.😀

Nice deal. Have you considered the new 8 round magazine Kimber offers? I bought a couple and like them.

Cucamonga... It was not easy finding someone the Desert Tan for a decent price. MSRP was $790 and seemed like a lot of folks were near $700 or were just out of stock. I do like the one you ended up with (was my second choice) but this one caught my eye being a bit different than most color-wise. Plus my full size 1911 Kimber is the Classic Stainless but with black grips so a big brother to the looks of yours - again wanted something a little different.

I haven't yet, mainly because I was concerned about the size continuing to increase (albeit not by a ton). Maybe a consideration though. The other thing I liked about the Sig 7 round was how the pinky extension flared out - in hopes to help with gripping (and shooting) a subcompact 9.

Wow, that's good to know Chuck! Hopefully I'll pick it up Friday or Saturday and will definitely be reading through it!

You could get a head start by reading it online.
Just kidding about trading. Just trying to express my jealousy in a funny way.
