Kimber’s Micro 9 group of ultra-compact hammer-fired pistols will see three new models on deck for next year.

The 1911-like Micro 9s are a series of single-action 7-shot handguns chambered in 9mm that the Yonkers, New York-based company have been expanding over the past few years to number over a dozen offerings. The pistol’s 3.15-inch barrel produces an overall length of 6.1-inches. The three newest models include two Exposed Slide Variant pistols and a KHX model.

Both ESV’s use ported slides, tritium night sights, diagonal ball mill slide serrations, black G10 grips, and a 30LPI checkered front strap and mainspring housing. Weight, empty, is 15.35-ounces, kept light with an aluminum frame.

The Micro 9 ESV Black uses a black frame and slide with a gold titanium nitride coated barrel.

Price on the Micro 9 ESV Black is $799, suggested.

The Micro 9 ESV GRAY has a charcoal gray frame and slide with rose copper TiCN coated barrel. Like the black ESV, it has an MSRP of $799.

The KHX Micro 9 has ledged fiber optic sights, hex-pattern front and rear serrations on the slide, Hogue G-Mascus G10 grips and mainspring housing, and Stiplex pattern texture on the front strap. The KimPro II Gray-finished aluminum frame couples with the stainless slide to produce an all-up empty weight of 15.6-ounces.

MSRP is $815.

The new Micros come as Kimber has also unveiled a line of striker-fired compact handguns, the EVO, as well as DA/SA variants of their K6 revolver series.
