Kimber Introduces 2017 Mid-Year Micro and Micro 9 Line Extensions

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.
