Red face New to the Forum. Have a question...

I had a Walther PK380 and could rack it no problem. I tried racking a Kimber Micro at the store and had no problem. When I received the one I purchased from the factory it is VERY difficult to rack. Is it just that it has to be worn in or would/could this be corrected? Thanks for your help.

Welcome. But I cannot begin to speculate. We are not comparing a Micro 380 to the effort required of the Micro 9 are we?

Disassemble, clean, lube shoot it and it will break in and slowly become easier

No, it's not a 9, it is definitely a micro 380. But thanks for getting back to me.

& 427Malibu, sounds like a good idea. I'll do that and hopefully it won't take too long to wear in! I love this piece! Thank you!

427 Magnum, just wanted to make sure you got my reply. Still trying to figure out the forums, etc. I'll try your suggestions and take it to the range and see if I can get it worn in. I love the piece! Thank you

Welcome to the forum from Northern Illinois. The suggestion above is likely the right approach. Give it a good cleaning/lube and shoot the heck out of it.
