    Kimber Micro Amethyst

    The Micro line of pistols from Kimber combines simple straightforward operation with the mild recoil and small size of a carry .380. Meant as a sort of miniature 1911 for everyday carry and dependable reliability, the Micro series and the Micro 9 series in 9mm are small and lightweight without sacrificing function or elegance.

    Standard Micro features include a 2.75-inch stainless steel barrel, 13.4 ounce weight, ambidextrous thumb safety, and a lowered, flared ejection port for flawless ejection.

    New for 2017 is the Micro Amethyst in an eye-catching purplish finish with tritium night sights.

    Kimber Micro pistols come with either a flush-fitting 6-round magazine or an extended 7-rounder. When it comes to ultra compact carry guns, it’s going to be tough to beat these.
