Welcome to the forum from The Lou...

Many will say 500 rounds, but many will also say when you have zero issues with it...

I always put 500 flawless rounds through mine before it hits the edc rotation, but that's just me..

I haven't read my owners manual yet to see what is recommended but before I go out to shoot it I would check. In fact I think I'll check now.

Welcome to the forum from Ohio!! I'm in the 500 round camp. Clean and lube before firing it and repeat every hundred rounds or so and you should be good.

Didn't see anything in the manual about recommended break in count. But I did see were they say if you use +P ammo you may have to replace the recoil spring a little more often. So I assume it's OK to shoot +P.

Kimber says no break-in required, read in another post someone called and asked. Go shoot and have fun. Mine has been running perfect from the get go. 300 rounds now.

Must have missed that page in the manual...

Welcome to the site from Tennessee! Congrats on the new Micro, clean and I say add extra lube should be good to go.
