I bought a tube of Froglube after reading all the accolades about that stuff. Froglube turned out to be one of the worst lubricants I've ever used and I ended up tossing it in the trash and went back to buy original Lubriplate. Glad it's working well for you!

I know it is a pain but they will take care of you.

Don't believe everything you read on the internet. All of my original factory magazines function perfectly!

Steve may be along to offer advice.

I just had the same thing happen with my new Springfield range officer,9mm 4 inch barrel. Called sent it back, they reamed the chamber polished the feed ramp and tuned the extractor. Three weeks and it runs like a champ. I know it sucks,first time I ever had to send one back but like everyone say chit happens.

I have a Pro carry in 9mm that I had similar issues when it was new. A gun smith told me that I needed to run “wet” until I hit the magic breaking number of rounds. I did this and now no hiccups after around 5 to 600 rounds.
Just a thought.
You might try it, don’t know if that will fix the issue. Or send it back to Kimber.
