New Micro 380 Owner

From Georgia.
Recently purchased a new micro 380 for my wife. Started looking on forums to see if there were any major issue to be addressed before we get to the range. I saw the threads about the recoil assembly, flat spring vs round. Called Kimber and have a new guide rod & flat spring coming. I also read about the slide stop pin working its way out but Kimber said there is not an updated slide stop pin. We will wait until we get the updated recoil assembly before heading to the range. I'm sure I will have more questions later

Welcome to KT from Texas. Glad to have you.

I have a Micro 380 fetish myself. You'll like the new flat spring set up. If you have problems with the slide stop coming out, you'll know what to do. Take your shoes off and make yourself at home here.

Welcome to the forum from Portage, Indiana. Put a little oil on that new micro and take it to the range with some quality Ammo and have some fun while your waiting on your new parts. I have a Micro Raptor and it's all stock and a great shooter.

Grumpy1, welcome to the site from Tennessee.

I think you should clean, LUBE well, and shoot it as may not even have a problem. Use quality ammo.
