Kimber Expands Their Micro/Micro9 Line Of Pistols

Kimber just released a Press Release on their expansion of the Micro/Micro9 series of pistols.

 

 

YONKERS, N.Y., April 17, 2017 — Kimber Mfg., Inc., a leading American firearms manufacturer, today announced the expansion of its Micro and Micro 9 products line to include six (6) new variants. The Micro and Micro 9 are premium micro-compact carry pistols chambered in .380 ACP and 9MM respectively.

The Micro/Micro 9’s barrel and slide are machined from stainless steel for superior resistance to moisture, while the frame is shaped from the finest aluminum for integrity and strength. One of the most important Micro/Micro 9 design advantages is the 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.

“We couldn’t be more proud of the marketplace performance of Micro and Micro 9,” said Ryan Busse, vice president of sales at Kimber. “With the platform’s increased success, comes augmented consumer demand for the addition of these new line-extensions, which we’re happy to meet.”

The Micro/Micro 9 platform blends Kimber dependability with superior design, offering sought-after small-scale 1911 ergonomics, a single action trigger, superior safety features, all-metal construction and American-made quality.

“The Micro and Micro 9 are truly exceptional platforms that offer the user adequate stopping power combined with the stunning looks and reliability that people have come to expect from Kimber,” said Winslow Potter, Kimber’s director of product management. “We’re working hard to build products that better suit our customers’ specific applications and individual personalities, and these six new Micro and Micro 9 line extensions do a good job in helping to tell that story.”

The new Micro/Micro 9 models follow Kimber’s formula executed in other platforms, and include; the Micro Desert Tan (LG) (MSRP $747), Micro Rose Gold (MSRP $1,013), Micro 9 Rose Gold (MSRP: $1,061), Micro 9 Midnight (LG) (MSRP $790), Micro 9 Desert Night (LG) (MSRP $790), and Micro 9 Woodland Night (LG) (MSRP $790). These models will be available from Kimber Master Dealers in the coming weeks.

    “New variants”? Smh. What they really mean is new colors. Anyway, they must be selling quite a few of these micro and micro 9’s to add 6 new colors. Pretty impressive for pistols with an obsolete manual of arms and crippled capacity that run $800 and up.

      I got one on GunBroker without a laser for $475. It’s been flawless with all ammo types the first couple of trips to the range. And it has the same capacity as any comparable pocket size .380 or 9mm. It’s noticeably smaller than my LC9.

      Rural King sells the stainless version for $579…

    I’ll stick to the Sig P938

    • Sean Glenville

      I wish Crimson Trace/SiG would release some laser grips for the 938 like the Micro 9 has

      I actually just swapped my P938 for the Micro 9 for carry gun. I like them both, but the Kimber has a few features that I like a bit better.

        What was better about the Kimber for you?

        • kipy

          I like that the Kimber ships with a metal trigger(never understood why Sig uses plastic on an all metal gun), is not ambi safety, and I think the trigger pull is a bit better on the Micro 9. I know these are pretty nit-picky things but when you carry it every day I think it’s worth upgrading. I do think the Sig-lite sights are definitely better tho. The Kimber I ordered came with the Crimson Trace grips for like 630$, which I thought was a pretty good deal at the time.

    I would’a gotten one if it was doublestack… and not made by Kimber.

    That rose gold model is pimp-tastic!

  • Marcus D.

    Reading that marketing malarkey makes it sound as if Kimber designed this gun, ignoring the fact that this is an ancient Colt design first marketed in 1983, the only difference being that Kimber, as did Sig, decided to produce it in 9mm instead of just .380. The only original design out there is the Springfield EMP; while I could be wrong, I understand that the EMP is a true 1911, re engineered for the shorter cartridge, unlike this Kimber.
    What I would really like to see either of them do is to add an additional round, but I guess it is cheaper to use Colt’s drawings than to engineer a slightly longer grip.

    Threaded barrel?
