Okay guys, took the new K6 and my Micro 9 to the range today.
For the K6 I bought a box of Remington .357 125gr, Remington .38 130 gr and a box of Federal .38 +p.
I started with the .357... WOW! What a kick!!!! Surprised me but I like it and was still able to get a nice grouping with 4 almost on top of each other.
With .38's recoil is much more manageable for me and still very accurate. I'm actually amazed at how accurate. Sights are good for me. I don't seem to have issues with just the black sights. The trigger is amazingly easy and smooth for a double action. I put 106 rounds thru it and only had 1 small issue. After the 1st 6 rounds when I went to reload, a round wouldn't go into one of the cylinders. Finally realized there was some kind of sticky debris in the chamber. Cleaned it out and no more issues.
Overall I am very pleased! Picks and short video below.
As for the frustrating part, I'm very disappointed in my Micro 9. It may be going back to Kimber again. At one point in the middle of a mag, the slide only 1/2 cocked the hammer. Then on the next mag, last round failed to fire and was jammed so bad the range officer had to bring over a soft mallet to get it to move into position. We fired the round and then the casing wouldn't eject. Slide completely stuck again. RO had to help me with a rod into the barrel and soft mallet again to break it loose. Hubby just isn't confident with me carrying the 9 anymore. When it works, it's great. Accurate, easy to shoot and carry but I guess you do have to be able to rely on it. Will see what Kimber has to say.
Gotta play with video to get it to upload. Will do that later.
