Kimber America | Kimber Press Releases


For Immediate Release


YONKERS, N.Y., November 13th, 2019 — Kimber Mfg., Inc., a leading American firearms manufacturer, recently announced the addition of two new Micro 9 models to the Micro 9 pistol line.

New for 2020, Kimber adds two new models to the Micro 9 family, the Amethyst and Triari, both chambered in 9mm. “The Micro 9 line of pistols is design for those who demand a dependable and compact concealed carry handgun with several options for style and performance,” said Tom Scott, Senior Marketing Director. “These new models signify our commitment to this category and offer unparalleled ergonomics, design and performance.”The Micro 9 Amethyst addition includes all the features consumers have become accustomed to across Kimber’s Gem Tone Line. The Micro 9 Amethyst features a Purple PVD slide with laser engraved border, purple PVD small parts, KimPro II Silver Frame, Purple and Black G-10 Grips with 3 vertical serrations, and standard night sights.

The Micro 9 Triari features aesthetically pleasing, fully functional, deep relief laser engraved, stacked cube front and rear cocking patterns on the slide. It also features a Stiplex front strap pattern, and grips with the stacked cube pattern for enhanced grip and control. Also included are a red fiber optic front sight, green fiber optic rear sight, KimPro II frame, and a match grade trigger, chamber, and barrel. The Triarii were part of the Roman infantry and were the most experienced warriors acting as the last line of defense. “Going to the Triarii” was a Roman saying that implied that everything else had been tried and found wanting. The Kimber MICRO 9 Triari calls to the Triarii, as the last line of defense, and what is called on when all other attempts have been exhausted. “Go to the Kimber Micro 9 Triari!”

The Micro 9™ group of pistols put legendary Kimber dependability into a small 1911like platform. 9mm power and simple operation make these pistols the ideal choice for many shooters. All Micro frames are shaped from the finest aluminum for integrity and strength. Micro 9 design advantages are a single action trigger with a short, smooth pull that ensures accuracy and builds confidence. The 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 integrity. Each Micro 9 includes an extended 7-round magazine.

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 9 pistols are the right choice for many applications. Best of all, they offer unequaled Kimber quality, dependability and performance.

The Micro 9 pricing is as follows: MICRO 9 AMETHYST MSRP $1061 MICRO 9 TRIARI MSRP $788
