For 2016, Kimber America introduced the Micro 9, which joins ranks with the .380 Micro introduced in 2012, offering the same small-scale 1911 ergonomics, a single action trigger, superior safety features and all-metal construction.
The Kimber Micro 9 barrel and slide is machined from stainless steel for resistance to moisture, while the frame is shaped from the aluminum for integrity and strength.
One of the most important Kimber Micro design advantages is a single action trigger with a short, smooth pull that ensures accuracy and confidence. The thumb safety, slide release and magazine release are pure 1911 in design.
Other standard features include a lowered and flared ejection port for flawless ejection and a beveled magazine well for fast, positive loading. Sights are steel — not plastic — and mounted in machined dovetails for additional durability.
The Micro 9 is currently available in three models: Micro 9 Stainless, Micro 9 Two-Tone and Micro 9 Crimson Carry. Ideal for any shooter, the Micro 9 brings a new option to the 9mm micro-compact market for concealed carry, everyday carry and home protection. Suggested retail price starts at $654.
