First 150 rounds

First time out with my Mirco two tone. It came with the new flat spring setup. 100 rounds of Winchester white box and 50 rounds of American Eagle (both 95 grains).

Not a single issue. Every round chambered, fired, and ejected flawlessly.

I am impressed how this gun feels and functions. Spent a lot of time fielding questions from other shooters too.

Excellent!!! And amazing accuracy for such a short barrel! Do you know if that's just a different spring or did they redo the rod too?

I have a S&W J frame with. 2" barrel and it's not this accurate. I'm not sure on the rod. It's 2and 1/16 inches long. I only knew it was new after calling Kimber CS because it did not meet the description in the manual.

Glad to hear your Micro shot well, sounds like a keeper :-) Thanks for the spec on the rod as well. It'll be interesting to see how mine compares?

...just checked, mine is right at 2 1/16" and came with the traditional spring.

Congratulations on you new Micro two-tone. Glad to hear it's performing great and has a new flat wire spring.

Excellent! That's exactly how a new firearm should function.
