Micro raptor extended mag issues

I bought a micro raptor about two weeks ago. I ordered 2 7 round magazines in for it (Kimber made). I just got the magazines in the other day and took it to the range today. One works flawlessly (so far) but the other is giving me issues. The bad one fully seats in, I can pull on it and it will not come out. But during firing it will randomly pop out. At first I assumed I was hitting the mag release with my support thumb since it's such a small gun. I tried shooting it one handed with my hand no where near the release and it still happens. The mag will just shoot out randomly. If I'm using a firm two hand grip so the mag won't fall out it has fail to feed issues because, I assume, the mag is not seated all the way up in the mag well. Any thoughts? Love the little gun and have only had issues with this one magazine. Should I call Kimber or try just returning the one bad mag to the company who I bought it from (online , eurooptic)?

My thoughts are, return the magazine. Try another.

I don't have a Kimber Micro, but I do have a Sig P238 which is very similar. I had the same problem with the mag release - initially thought it was my grip, but it also happened when my husband shot it.

Tried getting a new magazine & the problem seemed to be fixed for awhile, then recurred. I took the mag release assembly apart for an inspection & cleaning - didn't help at all.

I finally called Sig & they had me send it in. They replaced the mag release spring & it has been flawless ever since with all 3 mags.

I have a Micro with 4 extended mags. Never a single issue with the 7 rounder. Send it back and have it replaced if you can. There must be a flaw in the Mag.

I had similar nag issues once with my solo. Brand new extended mags didn't work right. KIMBER sent me 4 more. Call them and send the mags back.
