3/20/18... 99%

I haven't had a chance to get my Micro out for a while so thought I'd give her a go today. I did field strip and check to be sure the oil from the last cleaning over a month ago was still in place. it looked pretty much all there so I used a little paint brush to coat the rails. I brought two six round magazines and 100 rounds of Fiocchi (blue box) 95gr FMJ. About half way through the second box of ammo I had a light strike on the primer of a round. The cartridge fired just fine on the second try and all the following rounds fired fine as well. When I cleaned her up I pulled the firing pin and everything seemed fine, after reassembly she fired a pencil nicely on all three shots :-)
...target was at 7 yards

Possibly the primer wasn't fully seated.
