micro 380

Called kimber last Friday at 4 pm for a flat spring upgrade. Received Monday afternoon. Swapped spring and guide rod Tuesday morning, shot 2 seven round mags to test. Slide locked on 6th round on both mags. I know it worked fine with old spring. I guess I'll lube and shot the heck out of it to see if the spring settles in, if not I'll call kimber. Anyone else run into this?

My suggestion would be, do what you said. Clean it good, lube it and shoot it. Use several different ammunition because some of the micros are picky. Flat nose seemed to be the worst in mine. Document it, as in, number your mags, write what ammo, which round, which mag it locked. That way if it continues to do it you can help Kimber narrow down the issue. It probably just needs to wear in. If it keeps doing it then call kimber. They will send you a RMA and make it right.
