Micro Field Strip

Hello, new to the forum and new to Kimber. Recently got a Micro Carry. Went to the range this week and fell in love. I have shot 3-4 380's and the Micro is just in a different league. I came home and started cleaning. I had gone through the instructions and checked for video's. Closest I could find were for the Solo. I cannot get any movement on the takedown lever. I get the notch over the back of the lever and again no movement. Am I missing something? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois Bsmont33 and congratulations on the new Micro Carry. On new guns the slide stop is sometimes difficult to remove until it wears in a little. Make sure you're lining up the round notch in the slide with the slide stop and maybe use a piece of non marring plastic or something similar to help put pressure on the shaft of the slide stop.

Welcome BSMont. Wish I could help. Just somewhat difficult trying visualize your description. I am trying to figure just at what point you are at in the assembly. But i have not had issues. I can tell you that once assembled the motion in the slide release is barely preceptable. Again, trying to visualize at what point or step you are having the issue.

I think he's having trouble getting the slide stop out to break the gun down, not trying to assemble it.

Ahh. Seems you are doing in correctly. Slide back to the notch. When it is aligned push the nob on thee other side. The first few times I needed an wooden pointed tool, or end of a phillps (very carefully) to push it out enough to grip with my fingers. After the first few times and oil on the stem it was quite easy.

Success!!! Thanks for the help. My only thought was I was not getting into the correct spot. I tried again after reading the responses and I had no trouble. Clean and back together. I have enjoyed all of the help from the forum. Very informative.
