Kimber Micro Pistol

Recommended Posts

I've got one, base model.

Prefer shooting it with the extended mag (medium sized hands)

Mags are affordable.

Fit and finish are top notch.

Zero issues.

Trigger is pretty good at mimicing a 1911 even though hinged.

Kimber now offers an improved recoil spring and guide rod, I am still on the original (wire coil vs flat spring with diff rod and cheap to replace if I recall)

It fits a great carry niche for me both in height and weight.

I launched the safety plunger and spring, called Kimber, sent me one for free.

The extras of flared and lowered ejection port, beveled mag well, slightly melted edges (on mine) are all nice features.

With the flush mag it is the same height as a G26

Rural King has them on sale thru 29 th.  Need to go pick up some feed to wean calves with, cool and raining good time to go pick one up. Watched several you tube videos of the Kimber and everyone said they were very accurate. How does it fit for a pocket carry?

Just another copy of the Colt Mustang. I have two Mustangs and prefer the original Colts to either the Sig or Kimber copies. Plus the Colt is usually a bit cheaper. But all three are great guns. ;)

I ankle or back pocket carry, works well.

There was a thread on thin pocket holsters, I'd check it out for front pocket.

I love my micro 380. I like it so well that last month I purchased two micro 9 m m customs, to give my grandsons some day. Not even going to shoot them. I also got a striker 9mm for grandpa, with is in lay away.

I trust Kimber that much.

Yeah got mine back in Sept and have not shot it yet. Need to slug the barrel for sizing my cast boolits and load some up. Life sure gets in the way of having fun sometimes.

I have no use for a .380, but those Micro 9s are mighty tempting.  Their early bad reputation was concerning, but one of my brothers has one and it runs like a sewing machine, and is inexplicably accurate.

The Kimber micro 9 mm is a beautiful gun, and I would love to carry it. But I got them as an investment to give to my grandsons some day.

I'm concerned about the hammer snagging on my shirt or on a piece of clothing trying to get it out of my holster. The reason I worried about that, in martial arts training that I was taught about 36 years ago, if a person is within 21 feet from you, and they rush you, you don't have time to pull a pistol. So I would never want to take a risk on a snag, so I bought a evo striker, so there is nothing to snag and I know if it is cocked without being obvious. Just saying. Having a bar for 15 years I have seen some pretty crazy stuff about 3 feet away.

I sell a lot of the 380 and 9. No one has complained. For the price difference, I'd get the 9.

I already own a Mustang and a P238 and I'm more than happy with them both.

      Hey guys so I’m kinda in a dilemma here. I normally carry a Glock 19 as my EDC. I’m a big guy at 6’6”. I have no problem concealing my Glock with everyday clothes. The only time I have a trouble is when I wear church clothes or like dress clothes. I was looking at getting like a subcompact or single stack to help this out. What do you guys recommend for this type of application. By the way I had a Glock 43 but hated it as I have big hands and kept getting slide bite. So I sold it and got my Glock 19. Let me know what you guys think would get and why. Thanks!

      The 2.0 trigger is an improvement over the 1.0 without doubt.  I promised I would shoot my 2.0 for a good while before monkeying with parts.......promise broken.  I put in the flat-faced, forward set trigger kit in this past week-end.  Just wow!  I have had at least a half dozen 'gun guys' try this trigger out, all with the same impression.  What an improvement.  Pull wt can be changed by reference to the Apex flow chart that accompanies the kit.  Mine by trigger gauge runs 3.3#.  One can bump it up to over 6.  Very sharp trigger break, no creep, no stack.  Great reset.  Can highly recommend it, and yes there is a difference that is worth the money.
