Cool UPDATE!!! Going Back To Kimber

New Micro 380 CDP, weird issue:

With extended mag, tried WW,Rem,Prospec, no difference, gun has 300 rds fired.


Shoot 7, slide locks back;

Insert Extended Mag;

Cannot retract slide the last inch or so to release;

Push Mag release will not release Mag;

Force mag out with more pressure, Mag releases.

Happens greater than 75%.

I don't notice this with 6 rd mag.

[has new spring & guide rod]


Going back to the cradle.


The fix:


Extractor & Mag follower adjusted
Replaced: Thumb Safety left & Right,Ambi hammer pin,Hammer, Sear, Recoil Spring, Slide Stop, & Slide Stop Spring
Refinished barrell
Chamber reamed & polished.

Will take it the range ASAP.

How many extended mags do you have? Just wondering if it does this on all extended mags? Problem only when using extended mags? Wonder why not on the 6? Yeah..I am full of questions, brain trying to figure it out.

Sounds like a bad mag. If the 6 rounders load fine the 7 should too their the same from the latch up just longer.

I only have the 1 extended, they are hard to get hold of. The Kimber rep said it was a new one on him, something different with the mags I suppose, stay tuned........

Mags..have you tried ordering anymore? I got some for our Micro Carry from Academy Sports, shipped from Macon, I believe.

Got some 9mm from this place: they arrived in just a few days, http://www.nimrodswares.com/magazines/

CDNN Sports has mags galore. They run specials from time to time and sell a Colt Mustang 7rd mag (that fits the micro just fine) for $19.99 and the pinky extension is much larger than Kimber's and is great for the range. The regular price is $29.99. I have three Colt 7rders and love them. You don't have to get Kimber mags from Kimber unless you just want to have that brand name and the higher price.

Apparently this issue was so bizarre that a significant number of components were changed out. Kudos to KCS for the 2.5 week turn around, details to follow with range report next week, gone fishing.
