Review

Reassembly of the Micro 9 with the stock recoil spring is no walk in the park. This spring makes the task a bit harder. At least for me. The spring looks visually like it is very well made and is of robust material.

It took me 2 days to get the Micro 9 reassembled... I'm sure that's partly me and my 'tender' thumb and in my mind it also speaks to the need for a captured recoil spring assembly for this pistol, if that is even possible the way the pistol is constructed.

Anyway, I have not yet had an opportunity to take it to the range. The manual cycling of the slide seems a little bit 'stiffer' yet not by a huge amount, but that may just be me as well.

I look forward to the range session where I will be looking for the reduced recoil impulse experience, and will update with another review afterward.

Review

After shooting the Kimber Micro 9 my hand felt very much worked with the factory recoil spring. The gun's smooth trigger makes it easy to pop off rounds quickly but it sure is a snappy pistol and you do feel the recoil over medium to large pistols of course. My right hand was indeed tired from shooting. Read someone else's review on how it made the felt recoil softer so I ordered the recoil spring. Now I WILL agree with another person's review the reassembling of the recoil spring (which is longer than the stock spring) IS much more difficult than the original recoil spring. Ok I admit my fingers aren't callused or tough by any means but this was NOT easy to reassemble. Now for the good news. I took it to the range 11/20/2023 and shot 30-40 rounds and I can say it DOES seem to soften the felt recoil and was not as snappy. My hand did not 'hurt' after shooting. The gun cycled perfectly and I had no failures of any type (FTF/FTE). I did notice it was stiffer to rack the slide with the new spring.



This was a very good upgrade for the Kimber Micro 9 and thanks to MCARBO for producing a high quality 14 pound recoil spring. I know there is another manufacturer that makes a 22 lb recoil spring for the Kimber Micro 9 so good luck to anyone trying to compress that spring. If there are any suggestions/recommended method for compressing and installing the recoil spring please share and post. Now if only someone can invent a spring compressor. MCARBO - you listening? Grin.

Noticeably improved shooting experience

Review

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.
