Kimber Micro magazines falling out

Hey guys,

I just got to try out my extended mags from Kimber this weekend, and the magazines would fall out.

It seems there is a lot of play with the magazines even the standard 6 rd magazine.

Only one of the extended magazines would fall out consistently. Is this a design flaw in the magazine or maybe the gun's magazine catch? Has anyone had this issue resolved through Kimber? I plan on calling them tomorrow.

Gun and magazines are all very new. About 200 rounds in at the moment.

Tedpro, welcome to the site from Tennessee!
Not sure about the magazine issue. I don't own a Micro so I will allow others to answer.

I have not experienced this with my Micro extended mags. I agree somewhat loose fitting. However, this did happen for the first time with my relatively new Sig P938. That extended mag also feels somewhat loose. It happened for me the very first time last time at range. No issues previously 4 times. My thought was that maybe as I was gripping my little finger was pulling the (loose) magazine back and causing it to disengage. (only happened a couple times). When I go back to the range again in a week or so I am going to pay more attention to both the Micro and Sig to see if my grip pulling the magazine to the rear is causing the issue. However, again, it has not happened with the Micro carry and at this point it is my theory until I go back to the range and concentrate on the mechanics of my grip while shooting. In any case, not a good thing.

Tedpro,

Welcome to the forum from Northern Illinois. I have a couple of the extended mag's, so far with no problems. One does seem a bit 'loser' though this does not seem to have manifested itself in the form of a problem.

Keep us up to date.

John

I know this is an old thread but im curious to know what the resolution was. I just bought a Micro Carry .380 and after about 50 rounds of ammo through it the factory 6 round mag falls out with every round.

I wonder if my FTF problem is mag related. Every 2-3 rounds

So try holding it with only one hand or so that youre not covering the bottom of the mag with your hand and see if it pops out. I am thinking that the first couple FTF's may have been related to the mag poping out too but since I had my hand covering it I didnt notice.

My mags don't drop out; the rounds just don't feed consistently.

Clip Falling Out

My clip has dropped out, just a fraction of an inch. Then the gun does not fire. The problem is me; my thumb hits the magazine release the way I grip the gun. Had to be conscious of my grip.
