Following the launch of the Micro .380 semi-automatic pistol last year, the Kimber of America company announced the launch of a full 9mm-caliber subcompact concealed-carry handgun this year at the SHOT Show.
Dubbed the Micro 9, the new Kimber concealed carry and backup pistol is built around an aluminum frame and a stainless steel slide.
Available in a two-tone and in a fully stainless variant – and even in a “Crimson Carry” model with a built-in Crimson Trace laser – the Kimber Micro 9 semi-automatic pistol is a hammer-fired, micro-sized 1911-type pistol and sporting a single-action only, Match-type 7lbs (3.1kg) trigger.
It is merely six inches long and comes with a single-stack six-rounds magazine. The ramped stainless steel barrel is 3.15 inches long and sports a 1:16” left-hand twist rate. A 16 lbs (7,25 kg) recoil spring is coiled around a full-lenght guide rod.
