When I modified a 8rnd solo mag to 7 rnds, I only cut 1/2 a coil at a time . It's easier to cut more than messing up by cutting less. The only thing I buggered up was the mag sleeve. That's why I say less is better.

I too, cut half a loop at a time.
Another question. I just received a set of Meprolight Tru-Dot sights for the Micro 9. The front sight is VERY dim. Is that normal?

I replaced the OEM guide rod spring for a flat 21-22 lb springs from Galloway. Ran 50, 124 gr Lawmans through it...flawless. Then ran 18 various self defense loads of different grains through it. It had FTF on the last round. That sucked! The heavier spring seems to help with muzzle flip and seemed to reduce the violence of the action over the 11 LB OEM spring. I just got he gun back from Kimber because the magazine was dropping or falling out. they put a new mag ejection spring in the gun. it's very stiff now but seemed to help. I"m still convinced Kimbers problems is with its's magazines and mag release. So, Ive ordered Sig magazines that will work with minor alterations. any suggestions?

... Sounds like you have a Micro 9, are you sure the 11# spring is stock for a Micro 9??? I believe that is the spec for the .380s??? This is a Micro .380 area but there are several Micro 9 threads wrongly posted here so be sure you're not cross pollinating Micro data? There have been a number of reports of Sig P238 magazines being modified and working fine in Kimber .380s. On the Micro 9 there's a different area for those little beauties and that may be a better place to ask your question about magazine compatibility.
Good luck :-)
