Chambered in .380 ACP and 9mm respectively, the Kimber Micro and Micro 9 each sport a stainless steel barrel and slide as well as an aluminum frame. Both also feature a single action trigger with a short, smooth pull. Meanwhile, the thumb safety, slide release and magazine release are pure 1911 in design. Other common features between these two lineups include an ejection port that is lowered and flared and a beveled magazine well for fast, positive loading. In addition, the sights are steel, not plastic, and mounted in machined dovetails, giving the end user added durability.
“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,” Winslow Potter, Kimber’s director of product management, says in the press release “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.”
