Ultra Carry II

Are the grips on the Ultra Carry II in 9mm larger than the grips on a Micro 9?

Here’s a pic I found on the web for comparison. Ultra Carry and Micro .380, which is very close in size to the Micro 9.

there is about a 3/4 inch difference, meaning one more finger completely on the grip.

I used an Ultra CDP (same size frame as the Ultra Carry) with slim grips to teach 2 small ladies to shoot. Neither one had a problem holding the gun, they both went on to buy Ultra CDP's in .45 and shoot them easily.

Girlie hand is my wife holding my 9mm Stainless Ultra Carry.
Hope this helps? What size is her hand...no idea. She is right handed.
Pistol has a Crimson Trace grip.

I have small hands and replaced the grips on on my UCII with G 10 thin grips. The gun feels better now. Remember if you go that route you have to replace the original grip bushings with the thin style, it’s no big deal to do.
