3/15 no problemos :-)

...another 100% with my Micro. This is the third time in a row with absolutely zero issues. Today was with 100 rounds of Fiocchi 95gr FMJ (blue box) at 7 yards. I did lightly oil the frame rails before heading out as it's been 3 weeks I think since the last outing and cleaning. I believe I'm at around 600 rounds with the recoil spring I have installed.
...kinda like having a hot stripper girlfriend that has learned to cook some and do a little laundry!!! There's nothing wrong with that :-)

Glad to hear that your micro is coming around. I'm having a better time on the range with my micro too. Last 2 times out with 50 rounds each time & no failures! Plenty of lead to the head though! My P238 throws the cartridge either over my head or high over my right shoulder. My face & head take a beating with the micro! Guess it needs an adjustment, but I'm just happy that it's shooting more reliably.

Some look at the glass and say it's half empty. Others see the same glass and say it's half full. I look at the glass, and say, "That glass is twice as big as it needs to be!"

Well, you may have a point there bobtuba? I suppose it depends on what you've got in that glass :-)

Looking good Cousinmark !!

Looks like yours, Starnovi's and mine have settled in and started performing as they should. I carried mine to the lake this past weekend. It is soooo comfortable in the DM Bullard holster I have for it.

Keep shooting and sending in these positive reports !!

Good to hear that you are finding your Micros to operate reliably. Provides me hope that my replacement Micro (to be received in a few weeks from Kimber) will do as well.

Do you suppose the vast majority of Micro .380s are good and we just hear about the few bad ones? Logic tells me that is the case, otherwise Kimber would have pulled the Micro .380 like Remington did with its R51.

However, I bet most folks just fire a few rounds through their Micros after they get them and don't really know if their munchkins are reliable or not. Then down the road, the 1 yr. warranty expires and Kimber is off the hook if anything goes awry. It pays to go out and shoot several hundred or thousand rounds through a new firearm to see what you have. Kinda expensive thing to do though.
