I've never seen or even heard of this micro kimber! I was too busy at lunch today to get my solo. Now I'm thinking of that micro. Saw one for 609.00 but decided on the Solo still.
That Lil micro is sweet though.
Is it made by kimber? Or is it some other maker with the kimber stamp like that pepper blaster?

The Micro Carry was announced by Kimber 2 years ago and is finally making it into production this year. They're slowly starting to appear in some shops and on places like gunbroker.com.

Wow that's big!
The Micro is made by Kimber. It's a small pocket .380.

Looks like a sweet piece! Will definitely be in consideration as an addition to our Kimber family. The solo was just a bit too small for me but this one looks like it would fit quite well in my hand....would probably fit better in my conceal carry purse too :)

I think if Jeff really cared about you he'd buy you one.

Aww heck no!!!
She had the Solo and sold it because she wanted the Ultra Carry...
If she wants anything else she will have to buy it our tell me where to buy it for her....:confused:
{I know my place in the household}
To each his own, if my girlfriend wanted one I'd get it for her, just saying.

Yeah, the Micro is made in the Kimber Custom Shop. It has rounded edges, night sights, a laser if you want and weighs only 13.4 ounces!

It is a sweet little 1911. Ankle holster?

I still think it's a Solo only in 380.
It's 3 1/2oz lighter but all the other specs are similar..
I don't think so Jeff, I think it's modeled after the Colt Mustang like the Sig P238 is.

I'll give you a hint, Jeff. I've been married for 44 years and I have survived that long by learning to say one very short, simple sentence: YES DEAR!!!!! Sometimes I say that, then go and do what I want and claim that due to short term memory loss, I forgot!!! :eek::eek::eek: At 62, it works pretty good for me!!! ;);)

Try it! It is amazing how well it works!! Oops, did GiGi read this?? If so, this stunt may not work for you!!!! :D:D

My local dealer has 3 of them and I have been tempted. When we put it side to side next to a Sig P238 the similarities were striking. The safeties are identical as is the overall fit and feel. I'm sure it's just a kwinkie dink but I love conspiracy theories. Helps keep me paranoid.

Check the triggers on them if you can, the trigger on my P238 was heavy (8 lbs or so) and gritty. With use and a little tinkering I've got it smooth and down around 6 lbs but I'm not finished with it yet. I'd be interested in how the triggers compare.

We love our P238 but the trigger is definitely set for a safer pocket carry, not target shooting.

I picked one up for the Wife she likes it (got it as partial payment on a trade) but doesnt like it for carry
with the Cocked and Locked style of gun. VS other 380 that have long DA revolver style trigger pulls.

I have shot it its small for sure and trigger is nice smooth and it cycles
flawlessly.

SAFTEY DOES WORK.... here is a lil video of it running
(video is on FaceBook for some that doesn't work well)

Does have much better sights than her LCP she carries (has CT grip also)



Overall nice small gun in 380, it feels like a real gun in the hand
VS the LCP :)

I'm still waiting for one to magically appear at a LGS.
