Micro 9 vs Rose Gold Ultra ii

Been thinking about getting a Micro 9 in rose gold. Also considering a rose gold 1911 Ultra ii. Does anyone know if there is a big difference in the grip size of these 2 models? Have really small hand and short fingers. A little difference in size can mean a whole lot. Thanks.

The Micro 9 has a much smaller frame then an Ultra size Kimber. Your best bet is to visit a gun shop and ask to handle them. They don't have to have the particular model you're interested in as all Micro 9's and Ultra's will have the same size frames.

The grip sizes are night and day. The UCII has a nice sized grip and the Micro 9 is much smaller. I have to use the 7 round mag so my pinky finger will have a place to grip.

Wow, thanks. Can really see the difference when they are side by side. Thanks for taking the time to post that.

Marshall and Chuck had great answers. I think the Rose Gold Ultra comes with "Thin" G-10 grips, however the Kimber website does not say "thin." They are the same as the grips in Sapphire Ultra, just different colors. Thin grips makes it feel a little thinner..
