Kimber 2016 Lineup and Changes

I hinted in my previous post that Kimber is rolling out a new Micro 9 pistol and making some significant changes to their 1911 line.

These changes include updates to some existing lines as well as dropping some older models.

The standard black 1911 Custom II, Pro Carry II, and Ultra Carry II are all being dropped from the line. They are being replaced by the two tone variants that have been available this fall. They are also adding 9mm variants to this two tone group where the current offerings have been available only in .45 ACP. Continue reading

Kimber Micro 9 – Subcompact 9mm

Kimber is releasing a new 9mm subcompact pistol in 2016 called the Micro 9.

The pistol will look like a larger version of the Micro .380 and is expected to start shipping in March of 2016. The Micro .380 is similar to the Sig P238 and the Colt Mustang. The Micro 9 looks like it will compete with Sig’s P938 and other subcompact 9mm pistols.

The three variations initially available are below.

Micro 9 Two Tone (part number 3300099) – MSRP: $654.00

Micro 9 Crimson Carry (part number 3300101) – MSRP $894.00

Micro 9 Stainless Rosewood (part number 3300158) – MSRP $654.00

We will find out if ambidextrous models are coming as well. I’m sure that will be desired by some shooters.

We’ll post more info tomorrow on other changes to Kimber’s line. There are a bunch of 1911’s being updated!

Any more news on the Micro 9 series will be updated here. We’ll have orders entered soon but don’t expect shipments before March.
