Which one?

If you were going to purchase a Micro 9, which would you choose and why?





Side note:
I had a bunch of fail to eject today with my Raptor. 380. We are going to clean, lube and try again next week. This is the second time this has happened with this firearm, they have already replaced all the guts the last time, so next week it is back to the range to see if it works like it should otherwise I am DONE with this.

Agree with the Kid. Ya get the melted treatment, night sights and laser for about an extra $250 over the cheapest Micro 9 models.

IMO, as long as you're absolutely sure the Micro 9 is the gun for you to carry, get it all.

Helluva deal. I paid $920 for the wife's Micro 380 CDP LG 2 years ago.

No matter what ya buy... you'll always see a lower price come along.

The trick to getting the best deal is to buy the gun ya really want instead of settling on a gun that isn't.

I would give a serious look at a Stainless Ultra Carry in 9mm, nice pistol for the money.
If your heart is set on a Micro9 then my answer is below.

I agree with the guys unless you don't want/need the LG, in that case I like the Stainless Raptor Micro9.

Kimber Micro 9 SHOT Show Special 9mm with Holster and Two Magazines

It is a good value and is very user friendly with Hogue Grips. Two mags is a plus. The accompanying holster will work until you find one you prefer. The price is good.

Is that the same gun you've been struggling with for the past year or so?

If I wanted the Stainless look I would go with the Micro Raptor and if I wanted black I would get the Micro TLE. I like night sights on a carry gun and both have them. Both have some sort of frontstrap texture which I also like.
