You must be talking about Bud's Gun Shop! They are good to deal with, nice place, friendly people I've been there a few times.
I agree with Chuck's post and would like to add some points of interest. How did you come up with the idea that your brand new 380 Micro would need a whole list of modifications to be reliable? I will say up front I don't own a 380 Micro but I have fired a good friend of mine (Snowtao) a good bit.
You asked: "so out of box what can i do to make this gun more reliable?" Simple answer: Clean it and LUBE the crap out of it. LUBE, LUBE, LUBE is the Key Word. Yes, I mean run it WET.
I have a few Kimber's and I've never had to modify or change any internal part to make any of them reliable. You just have to chose the model version that the external looks appeal to you the most because the internals will all be the same.
IMO your asking for a list that does not exist.
There are a lot of 380 Micro's for sale on GunBroker.
