There is a time and place when the statement, “Go big or go home!” makes total sense. However, when it come to concealed carry, size (or rather the lack of) makes sense. Kimber has earned its place as a premium manufacturer in the firearms industry through quality offerings that perform when you need them most. Now, with the expansion of the Micro and Micro 9 lines, Kimber has six new premium micro-compact carry pistol variants chambered in .380 ACP and 9mm.
Here is the full release from Kimber.
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).
