Adding this new spring from MCARBO significantly softened the felt recoil when shooting my Kimber Micro 9 Rapide Dawn. During a range day - you could feel that you’re shooting a Micro pistol. After installing this stronger recoil spring this Micro 9 now shoots and feels like a full size pistol. In addition to being my EDC it is now my favorite pistol to shoot at the range.
Note: The slide feels heavier to rack
Back story: I was about to purchase a Wilson Combat SFX9 when I was introduced to the Kimber Micro 9 Rapide Dawn. By comparison, the Kimber’s trigger was heavier and the recoil was super snappy, however with the addition of this MCARBO recoil spring and MCARBO trigger kit, my Kimber Micro 9 shoots and feels like WC SFX9 at 1/2 the cost. I’m really pleased I took this leap of faith.
