Well, decided to have a 9mm range day and took the Micro 9 STG and the Ultra CDPII(9mm) with some Armscor 124gr. ball and HST 124gr.
Started with 40 rds Armscor through the CDPII. Flawless and very accurate as I expected. Next was 35 rounds Armscor through the Micro 9. First round, bye bye front sight fiber optic sight insert..... the three light primer strikes
. All three fired the second time they were hit. Loaded up 40 rds HST for the Ultra and the remaining ten for the Micro. The Micro fired them all without issue, but had two nosedive FTF with the Ultra. I noted which magazines they were in and will have to test a bit more.
Things I learned:
1.) The Micro 9 is NOT a range gun. It beats me up pretty good. I shoot it well, but it is NOT fun......
2) I think I like the fiber optic front sight better WITHOUT the fiber optic insert....seems to be MUCH more clear to my old eyes.....(this may change as I have an appointment scheduled to explore different prescriptions in each eye to help with shooting).
3) I'm not sure what to think about the Ultra having the nose dives....It was perfect with the Armscor.....more shooting/observation needed.
And one question:
1) Does the Armscor possibly have hard primers? The Ultra had no issue, but three light strikes in 35 rounds with the Micro???? Apples and Oranges, I know, due to different hammers, firing pins and springs......
PS As far as accuracy, I have always been blessed with being a good shot, but ALL of my Kimbers make me look GOOD.....
