Kimber Offers Raptor and Advocate Models in Micro .380 ACP Pistols

Yonkers, New York — January 15, 2015 — Micro .380 ACP pistols bring an unequaled level of safety, dependability and performance to concealed carry. The new Micro Raptor Stainless™ is a small and light pistol that features a flat top slide with a back-cut row of scales and scaled serrations in the gripping areas.  Scaled front straps and zebrawood grip panels continue the theme that gave the Raptor family its name. In fact, the Raptor design theme is so refined that it was granted a patent (D560750S). Micro Carry Advocate™ features include a black slide, silver frame two-tone finish and 3-dot tritium night sights. It ships with an extended 7-round magazine and is available with either purple/black or brown/black G-10 grips.

Kimber®blends quality with superior 1911 ergonomics and simple operation. Mild .380 ACP recoil and a smooth single-action trigger pull make them a pleasure to shoot — even for those with small hands. Weighing less than 14 ounces with a barrel length of just 2.75 inches, Micro pistols are also easy to carry and conceal.

Micro barrels are machined from stainless steel for superior resistance to moisture. Micro frames are shaped from the finest aluminum for integrity and strength. In many respects a miniature 1911, one of the most important Micro design advantages is a single action trigger with the kind of short, smooth pull that ensures accuracy and builds confidence. The ambidextrous thumb safety, slide release and magazine release are pure 1911 as well. 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.

Ideal for shooters with small hands as well as those who insist on mild recoil combined with enough power for concealed carry or home protection; Micro pistols are the right choice for many applications. Best of all, they offer unequaled Kimber quality, dependability and performance. Ten models are available from Kimber Master Dealers across America. Suggested retail price for the Micro Raptor Stainless is $960 and $796 for the Micro Carry Advocate™.
