    I come from the hills of WV
    I took my new Kimber Ultra Carry 2 to the range today.
    I had only 2 minor problems.
    1 I noticed that my shots wer grouping to the left.
    Which i believe to be from a weak grip.
    2 After about 5-6 mags occasionally the slide would not
    lock back after the last round was fired.
    Any ideas? Things I should try on my next range trip?
    Also this gun is chambered in 9mm and has an 8 round mag.
    Thanks

    For the slide not locking back you probably need to try some different mags. As for it grouping to the left that is all you. :supergrin:

    As far as i know Kimber is the only co that makes mags for the Ultra Carry.
    I looked online last night and was unsuccessful at finding any other mags.
    As for the groups, like i said i believe its from a week grip. Im use to shooting
    my glocks which have a bit wider grip than the 1911.
    Once i discovered the problem i gripped the gun a little tighter and it helped with the issue. I went thro 200 rounds with it today and will be spending more
    time at the range with it before i will be comfortable carrying it on a daily basis.

    Others will chime in but I'm quite sure any officers size mag will work in your UC2. The Wilson 47 OX would be a good choice. Again I'm not positive but seeing your frame is aluminum you need to choose mags carefully, if you stick with a polymer follower you won't have to worry about gouging the feed ramp.
