Magazine releases after 1st round is fired

Just bought the new micro 9 with built in lazer grip, I cleaned the gun and took it to my range. I used first the extended mag that came with the gun. Loaded 7 rounds of magtech 115 grain and to my disappointment the magazine was released slightly after the first round fired which jammed the next round in the chamber. I thought I must have somehow pressed the release mag button while gripping the gun. I tried it again after clearing the jammed round and it happened again. I pulled out that mag and decided to use the flushed mag that also came with the gun, 6 rounds in that mag I shot the first round and it happened again.. I am a right handed shooter as well as left handed. Don't know what is going on, I am concerned because I cannot depend on carrying this gun until I find a solution this mishap. This has never happen with any other gun that I own. I have not tried firing it with my left hand because I was totally distraught about what had just happened. Has anyone had this issue with there micro 9 with lazer grip?

My brother recently purchased a Raptor Pro 9mm and the same thing was happening to him. He sent it back to Kimber and they took care of it. It wasn’t the magazine, sorry I don’t remember exactly what the problem was but they will fix it for free.

Chuck - this is exactly why I use other magazines than the Kimber magazines.

My Sig P938 had the same problem with Sig magazines. It's a known issue with the P938 but I have never heard of it with the M9, however the two guns are quite similar (and will even take each others mags).

A trip to Sig and they replaced the catch spring in the gun I forget the technical name now, but it's not the mags it's a spring that causes the mag to snap in that is in the gun itself. Easy fix for them, pure warranty for you other than the hassle.

If that were the only problem I had with that Sig I would still have it, unfortunately not even close.

Welcome to the forum!

Come on OT57....You can't keep blaming most of the Micro 9 and other models issues on the mags. I have 10 that function great for my M9 and another 20 or more for my other shooters that have never had "ONE" issue....

Sure I can! That may not be the issue, but I can still blame Kimber magazines. Since I got rid of them, no issues. But I will stop whining like a little girl now!

I have several of those black 8 round 45 mags that Kimber used to give you with a new gun. I have had them since 2004-05, never taken them apart or cleaned them and they still function flawlessly.

Okay I give up! It's not the magazines. I still won't ever use a Kimber magazine, but they work great! How's that for a patronizing answer?
