Kimber Micro 9- Weird Primer Strikes

My EDC gun is a little Kimber Micro 9. I’ve only had it for a few months but I really like this little gun. The one issue that I have is the primer strikes. This gun has yet to have a FTF of any sort. Runs like a champ. BUT when you look at the primers on the spent casings, you would swear they were light primer strikes. There is barely a dimple in some of them yet every single one has fired.

Is this an issue I should be concerned with? I kind of wonder just because it’s working now, could these become actual light strikes later on?

Would like some thoughts and opinions from those more knowledgeable with gunsmithing than myself.

I don’t have any on hand to post but have a 10mm that barely marks the primers at all, let alone dimple, and they go off :man_shrugging:

Will try to get a pic up this weekend. I will have to dig a few out of the reload pile.
