KIM­BER MI­CRO 9

Concealed Carry Hand Guns - - THE ARMORY -

Kim­ber knows a thing or two about pro­duc­ing 1911 pis­tols, and the Mi­cro 9 bor­rows many de­sign el­e­ments from John Moses Brown­ing’s orig­i­nal. For starters, its sin­gle-ac­tion de­sign offers a crisp trig­ger pull, and the grip an­gle is com­fort­able and han­dles re­coil ef­fec­tively for very fast fol­low-up shots. The alu­minum frame is light­weight but durable, and the bar­rel is made from ma­chined stain­less steel.

The Mi­cro 9 comes with a set of ex­cel­lent black steel sights with the rear dove­tailed to the frame and the front sight pinned. The fin­ish on the var­i­ous mod­els is durable enough to with­stand the abuses of daily carry.

Weigh­ing in at just 15.6 ounces un­loaded, the Kim­ber is one of the light­est guns on the list, but the rather rounded grip de­sign and the beaver­tail make shooting this gun com­fort­able and pleas­ant. Stan­dard magazine ca­pac­ity is six rounds, but there’s a seven-round magazine avail­able as an op­tional ac­ces­sory. For a light sin­gle-ac­tion semi-auto, this is a su­perb carry op­tion that’s built to Kim­ber’s high stan­dards.
