You could try Brownells too, but I'd be surprised if anyone but Kimber has parts for the Micro.

Wonder if a Colt firing pin would work?

I have been searching and can't find one...You're probably right Steve.

That or a Sig, but either would probably require some fitting.

I'm just wondering what happened to the original firing pin ??

The Micro is so new that I know it wasn't worn out...

I doubt that anyone but Kimber will have a firing pin for the Micro Carry, when the firing pin on my Sig P238 broke Sig was the only place that had them.

Reports of long waits for customer phone service just to be able to order a part are disappointing, indeed.

Perhaps a long wait will eventually result in Kimber fixing it for free. I am just trying to be optimistic.

When I first bought this micro it wound not fire, so I took the slide off and checked the firing pin and noticed it was to short to hit the primer, so I removed it and saw it had no damage, so I think someone put the wrong pin in and that's why I need the exact measurement of the pin to make sure. Thanks
