A couple of months

Before I can even start thinking about carrying the Micro.
Apparently so. I called today and no magazines (nor recoil springs) will be available sooner than that.

An Auto, without a magazine? That's got to hurt sales.

I have one but I am not going to carry without a back up.
The spring is possible concern as well.

Sig p238 standard mags function fine. But they cost twice as much! Also you can pick up a 12 pound Colt Mustang spring at most places that sell them.

$50 after shipping, ebay/paypal fees, and obvious mark up is not even too much, but I am not in hurry so I can pass.

THe Mustang magazines are mentioned here as well: https://www.kimbertalk.com/forums/kim...magazines.html

The original Colt magazines for the Mustang can be purchased for a little more that $30. Maybe I'll try one.

By the way, I stopped by the range on my way back home. I shot 75 rounds, 50 FMJ and 25 Fiocchi JHP and the little mouse proved once again to be a fantastic shooter (other that I had a one failure-to-extract with the first magazine).
