Am I the only one with Micro 380 good luck?

Admittedly, my Micro 380 is a very recent acquisition. Purchased a couple months ago. But, I do have a little over 500 rounds, using six brands of ammo, and so far - fingers crossed - from the very first shot, every round has loaded, fired, and extracted successfully. Am I too optimistic too soon? Are there others with this level of early good luck that saw that good luck remain consistent? I do have a newer version with the flat recoil spring, for what that's worth.

ARE there any longer term success stories with the Micro 380. I really, really like how it shoots and hope my optimism is not unfounded.

Howdy from Houston Texas PCovers !
Welcome to the forum. I had some issues when the gun was new that I would not consider to be concerning. It came with the old style spring and Kimber sent me the new style. Ended up sending it back to Yonkers for a Spa Day and it came back with some of the issues resolved but was still having some Failure to Extract (FTE) issues occasionally. I adjusted the extractor and did a little smoothing of some of the rough edges on it (extractor) and the gun has been doing great since then. I have probably 700ish rounds through it so far. Love the gun !!

Hey, welcome to the forum from GA. Glad to hear that you are having such good success with your Micro 380. It's what I'm hoping to say one day too, hopefully soon. Mine started out fine, but after a few weeks started having failures and it's been back to Kimber twice. It has well over 1000 rounds through it. It's showing improvement but not ready for prime time yet. I think it will get there. I love the pistol, fun and easy to shoot, very accurate, easy to conceal. I hope you have continued success with yours.

Other than a broken firing pin, mine has been flawless after breaking it in. I now have close to 400 rounds without any malfs. My confidence has been restored.

Mine is nearly 500 perfect rounds. It has been on my hip for the past 4 days for 12-15 hours each day. I've had no issues.
