New Micro .380...Outstanding.

Hey all, This is my very first post here in the forum. So salutations to everyone. I picked up my first Kimber pistol ever today, a new two tone desert night Micro .380 with desert G10 grips. It is a gorgeous piece and remarkably reliable. I fired FMJ, Hornady XTP, and Federal HST through her tonight and I cannot say enough good things about it. I was definitely skeptical in buying it because of the things I heard regarding the old guide rod, guide springs and extractor issues. This pistol has the new components installed, and after 150 rounds out of the box without cleaning, she runs like a fine swiss watch. Could not be any more happier. Hopefully I will get many good years of service out of it.

Welcome to the group, and to your Kimber. I was starting to worry that mine was the only trouble free Micro Carry.

It was first available from Colt in 1986 known as the "Colt Mustang" then in 2009 Sig began producing a copy they call the P238. When small carry guns became popular Kimber jumped on the band wagon with their version calling it the Micro Carry.
