Range Report After A Trip To The Mothership

Don't mean to sound like a "fan girl" but 3 weeks after my Micro 380 returned from the Mothership, it has never shot better. Been to the range 3 times and each time I'm excited all over again by how smooth and easy it shoots. While I'm not the best shot, the adjustments they made have caused it to be significantly more accurate. It eats everything I feed it and is smooth as silk. This target was at 9 yards.

We also got to play with a Firefly (the knock off of a Sig Mosquito). The little 22 failed at every turn. We put 4 different types of ammo through it thinking it needed a heavier load but even the recommended CCI had multiple failure to load with every mag.

I'm really impressed with Kimber's service. What a fast turn around with so many new parts. It's like a new gun. It ought to shoot great.

Did you shoot any flat nose range ammo? My Micro .380 will not cycle flat nose ammo at all.

Glad to hear your Micro 380 is working properly. I know if I was having the problems you were having my accuracy would be off too. You were probably focusing more on the guns problems than your shooting.
