Cool Lefties Left Out

Will a Lefty ever find the required thumb safety for his Micro 9? A sweeping search of the internet unearths little; and a visit to Kimber online, produces "Zero"

My wife is a lefty and we couldn't find one either. She ended up picking up a Springfield 911 with an ambi safety.

We found some Sig 938s have ambi safeties as well.

Thanks for the info Chuck. I got the numbers from the website, but nobody is home on the weekends; add the fact that it's Christmas weekend....... well, that's why I asked here. I've been shooting the Micro 9 quite a bit at the range and it's beginning to become a part of me. But because of the safety being on the "wrong" side, it's not a good idea to use it as my EDC CCW; even with the greatest amount of adaptation and practice. I can compensate and master almost all other unmodified weapons; but not this particular design.

Lefties left out? Oh, I thought you were to going to talk about a MAGA rally.
Never mind, carry-on.

Yes. Lefties will find their thumb safety on the Micro 9 Raptor, CDP and SEs.

Well, don't just tease all us Lefties! Tell us more! Specs! Pix mean it DOES happen, so tell us the tale!

(Although my Micro9 came with the ambi -- do they not do that any longer?)

There are 5 Micro 9's listed on the Kimber website that come with an ambidextrous thumb safety.
