New member, new kimber owner. Already need help!

New here, from STL, Missouri. Just brought home a kimber micro 9. Preformed a field strip, cleaned and lubed it up. Put it back together and the slide is locked back and is not moving at all. I know what I did wrong. I'm having trouble fixing it. Read a few posts about this happening to other people but not sure how they fixed it. Please help! Also joined because you guys sound like a great/fun group with lots of useful information. Thanks guys!

Welcome from Southern California! I cannot help you with your present problem. I do not own a micro 9. I am sure some one will chime in with the correct answer for you. As soon as you get her issue solved you will like your Kimber purchase. I bought my first Kimber because I could not pass up the great price. I bought my next three Kimbers because I am hooked.

You say you know what you did wrong? What was it that you did? Seems crazy, but is the magazine in?

Magazines not in. I put the slide stop in when the slide was too far back. It seems to be totally locked up.

Welcome to KT from St Lou....Sounds like you have a small issue with your Micro 9 that can be resolved without sending it back..

If ya want, PM me your contact info and I can walk you through it or even meet up with you to fix it...

I work in the Lou and live in Fenton by the Gravois Bluffs Gander Mountain so I can't be that far from you...Let me know and good luck.

Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois, I'd suggest you take Marshall up on his generous offer to help. Aside from being the forum clown he's very knowledgeable when it comes to guns and it's going to beat a 4 - 6 week wait to get your gun back from Kimber.
