    Finally bought the Micro9 I'd lusted for for years. At 66, believe me when I tell you you only live once. I love the look, the heft, the 1911 pointability, the whole 9 yards. BUT........ For whatever reason, the safety engaged at least twice per mag while firing. I only put 3 mags thru...

    My first day at the range with the brand new Micro 9 was for a CCW class. It did not go well. All the problems of not feeding , jamming, failure to return to battery, and failure to eject happened. I was disappointed with the new purchase so went back to the range with different magazines (all...

    I'm very new to handgun ownership, so while reading please take this in consideration. I have taken several training courses, including a conceal carry course. After some research I purchased the Kimber Evo SP last week. Took it to the range and the gun seems to be off. It's seems to be...

    After going to the range the first time and reloading my three magazines, twice, my old man fingers hurt bad. So I am in the market for a speedloader to ease the pain!:) Do you have any recommendations based on YOUR experience? I have looked at the MakerShot (~$12.50) and the Uplula...

    I bought a new Micro 9 Crimson Carry on Friday. Shot 98 rounds of factory ammo yesterday. According to my owner’s manual, reloaded or even remanufactured ammo voids the warranty...such as it is. I realized a lifelong goal this year and starting loading my own ammo. So far, 9mm, 45ACP, and...

    I decided it’s time to join with other Kimber owners, now that I’ve purchased my 2nd Kimber pistol. Adding to my Master Carry Pro 45ACP, is my new Micro 9 Crimson purchased Friday. I just started reloading this January, and decided to add another 9mm to my collection, and for potential carry...

    Hi, I'm new to the forum here an I have a question. Currently, I don't want to carry "cocked and locked." I understand it's safe but for the time being I don't want to. So, I want to carry my Micro 9 will a full mag and empty chamber. I have practiced drawing my weapon, chambering, and...

    I bought a Kimber Micro 9 for my daughter to celebrate her getting her Michigan CPL. She decided she wanted to get her license and took the steps to get it all on her own. This spring she went and took the class and a couple of months ago applied for her license, which she got a few weeks...

    Hi everyone. I'm a new member to forum looking for some advise on which Kimber to get. My wife has a Kimber MICRO CDP (LG), which is a very sweet handgun. I'm ready to move from Glock 42 to a Kimber. I'm interested in 9mm and have largely narrowed it down to the MICRO 9 CDP (LG) and the...

    What is minimum you have to do to be able to remove and then be able to reinstall the sear spring on a micro 9. For example can I just remove main spring housing or will I need to break it down further. I am familiar with 1911’s and I know the Micro 9 is similar but yet a little different. I own...

    Hello! I'm Nicefish's wife and, as was recommended in a reply to his intro message, I've decided to join the club here at Kimbertalk. My husband is always looking for a reason to buy his next pistol and he's finally found the way to do it without me complaining: convince me that I need another...

    This was only my 2nd time shooting this brand new Woodland Night. If you saw my first post a few days back, I had some issues with it during my first trip to the range, where I only had time to shoot 42 rounds. Multiple FTFs, etc. I'm glad to say that I was able to put 143 rounds through it on...

    I'm interested in carrying a "pocket pistol" and would like to hear your opinions about the Micro 9 and its competition, namely, the Sig P938, S&W Shield, and Glock 43. Other comparable models are also welcome, but these are my top contenders. I'll have a separate thread for pocket 380s. Thank you!

    Long story short - it was a disappointing trip on several fronts. A summary for those that don't care to read my whole long-winded post (TL;DR) : This is my first Kimber, I only had time to shoot 42 rounds before the range closed - and had several FTFs, a few ejected casings that hit me in the...

    Just got my first kimber a basic 2 tone micro 9 . I will be taking to the range for the first time in the next day or 2. I have read a lot on the kimber being ammo finicky and have seen a friend with a ultra carry have it stove pipe and double tap. I normally shoot Glocks but this is such a sexy...

    Hi everyone, first time on these forums, and I thank you in advance for your advice! To get right to it... I have had a kimber micro 380 as a carry gun for some time and definitely liked it. However it has been sold to make way for a micro 9 which I am very much looking forward to getting...

    Bought a new Kimber micro 9 Crimson in desert tan. This is not my first Kimber or my first Crimson. Never had any issues with the others. The micro 9 is a different story. Cleaned and oiled before taking it back to the range like all pistol parents do..:) This gun consistently jammed. Left one...

    Guys, new to the forum and this looks like a great place to meet other Kimber owners and share information. I have a Kimber Micro 9 and I think there is something wrong with the safety or the sear. If I put the hammer at full cock, the safety works like a champ, however, if I put the hammer up...

    I have fired about 300 rounds though my Micro 9, about 100 of them through a modified Sig 938 7-round magazine. The 938 mag fed various ball ammo with 100% reliability. I found Winchester Ranger 147gr rounds and Speer Gold Dot (uncertain bullet weight) to be unreliable on the 6th and 7th round...

    After seeing the posts on modifying sig938 mags, I had to try it. I'm pretty good at breaking things on my first attempt at anything. I was very reluctant given the price of these puppies. Anyway, follow instructions that have been given by others, take your time, square up the corners...
