    Micro 9 Covert
    I own several Kimber, Sig, S&W and other pistols and revolvers. I bought this as a small carry gun. I've read the various reviews and the repetitive "miss fire" issues and figured it would take 3-500 rounds... to break it in. However, I can honestly state that I brought the gun home, got in my RZR, drove out the gate into the NF, went to a safe spot to shoot and did so. I ran over 100 rounds of 3 different brands of ammo: Remington HP, Remington Ball and Horridly Critical Defense LITE through the gun without a single issue of any kind. That was straight out of the box. At 25' the gun grouped about 4" without any great effort. I think that will improve as I get used to it. Recoil is noticeable but not an issue. more

    Not without flaws
    Purchased the Micro 9 CSE edition a few months ago, and I can honestly say its great shooter. I haven't had any failures with the handgun and it's more accurate than I am. If I do my part, it hits point of aim with every... trigger squeeze.It is comfortable to shoot, light and thin enough to carry without being annoying or weighing my pants down.The reason for the 3 stars? Saying the finish sucks is being polite. Mine has the black finish on the frame, and just from carrying it in a leather holster it looks horrible. The finish has worn off in areas around the trigger guard, various parts of the frame, and don't get me started on the top of the frame where the slide rides.It doesn't even look like a wear from use. It's flaking and chipping in areas that make it look like the gun is abused or thrown around, which I assure you it never has been.The inside of the slide is completely worn, the area of barrel lock up has no finish left at all, the breech face is complelty chipped away, it just looks like a beater pistol after around 400 rounds and daily carry inside a IWB leather Desantis holster.Other than the cheaper than spray paint Kimpro finish, Ive has no issues at all other than wishing I had purchased another color. more

    Micro .380 - accurate, when it actually fires
    I have had many handguns over the years, and this by far is the worst of the bunch. This was my first Kimber, yes I had heard the rumors that they had quality problems lately, but decided to try one out since it was on s...ale. Went to the range and put about 100 rounds through it, but quit out of frustration at the continuous misfires and failures to feed. Either a round would not seat fully in the chamber, to where I had to nudge the slide forward with my thumb, or the slide would stay fully retracted with the next round staying put in the magazine. I called Kimber, printed their label (had to send it in my own box), sent it in. To their credit, I got it back in a weeks time. They polished and reamed the barrel and replaced 1 mag (out of the three I had). Went back to the range, and shot through two boxes of ammo and all three mags without any misfeeds; but I would not rely on this gun for a life and death situation, I just don't trust it. If Kimber took any pride in their product, they should probably ream and polish the barrels BEFORE they leave the factory. Heck, I have a KelTec .380 that has fired for the past 10+ years every time I've pulled the trigger, for 1/3 the price. Lesson learned. more

    No failures
    I bought the stainless version with crimson trace grips. Went to the range and fired 400 rounds from 8 different manufacturers without a single failure. I cleaned it before I went, after 100 rounds and after 200 more rou...nds. Around the 200 round mark the fiber optic on the front sight came out and was lost (customer service was very easy to deal with). Groups were fairly tight for a pistol of this size, although my shots were consistently 1-2 inches low at 5-7 yards. Reassembly took a few tries to get the hang of, but isn't too difficult. Overall seems well made, maybe overpriced but I'm happy with my purchase. more

    Kimber Micro 9 STG
    This is a superb firearm. The STG with Hogue grips fit my large hands well and offers great control, the extended grip gives your pinky a place to rest. Accuracy is surprising and it shoots more like a full sized handgun... with mild recoil. The fiber optic site is highly visible and target acquisition is easy. Quality is excellent, not a single mechanical failure during the break in period so far with 200 rounds through it and 400 cycles of the action. I fed a mix of 115 grain new brass through it without issue from a variety of manufacturers. Conceals very well, is fun to shoot, and is easy to clean. I prefer it to my full sized pistol. more

    Nice gun. Shoots well.
    Read both the good and bad reviews, and decided to buy the micro 9 with laser. I like the way the gun feels in my hand. It is small but has the feel of a bigger gun. Took it to the range and shot a hundred rounds of Winc...hester 115 gr 9mm without any ftf, fte, or misfeeds. Groupings were good and recoil is acceptable. Break down for cleaning is easy and quick. Reassembly is just as easy except for pushing the ejector down far enough, but with a small flat to screw driver to help it was easy. The only down side I saw was the mag is extremely hard to load. This did get a little easier the more I shot the gun. more

    She fires smooth and accurately
    I purchased the Desert Tan. At the range I produce tight groupings and have never had one jam or misfire. Excellent carry pistol. I am completely satisfied.

    Kimber experience
    I am extremely pleased with all aspects of this gun. Easily concealed, pleasant to shoot and I had in initial break in zero function failures. That being said here are issues with all of my Kimbers. Disassembly is a pain... . For the 3" & 4" .45 's save yourself frustration and look up 1911 Ultra tool. This is a guy in a work shop that has a tool enamel coated to pop out the barrel stop lever. Also has a magnetized bushing that slips over the guide rod to keep the recoil spring compressed, worth ever penny.All Kimbers I've had needed an adjustment to the extraction spring .The negative to this gun because it's compact the slide is very tight and reassembly after cleaning is an effort. Still the trade out is worth it. It's a real value. more

    Not fit for defense FTEs are common
    Even with premium ammunition you are going to fail to eject on a regular basis. I was offered half price for trade in value at Cabela's. I have serious buyers remorse.

    Kimber Micro 9 = FTF & FTE
    Bought the Micro 9 with laser from Cabela's over a year and had shot it multiple times indoor and outdoor with 115 gr Remington, Speer, and Anguila and this is how I look at it:

    Poor workmanship
    Bought the Micro 9 03/01/18 and shot it the next day with quality factory loads. I own 12 handguns from a variety of manufacturers and have never encountered so many problems with a new handgun. The Kimber 9 Micro failed... to feed 5 times out of 50 and failed to fire twice. The cleaning process is a complete nightmare. The firearm disassembles easy enough, however, putting it back together is a mission impossible. I believe the feeding ramp is to steep for clean quality feeding. more

    misfires!!!
    Bought gun, took to range, first 5 shots the gun never fired, tried different ammo, same thing. Finally on 10th shot the gun fired! Then the second shot it only didn't fire 6 times, It took nearly 150 shots with 3 differ...ent ammo types including Sig Sauer ammo, Hornaday and Remington ammo to get the gun to fire reasonably reliably. I took it home took it apart cleaned it. Took it back to the range and had several more although less frequent misfires, Now after nearly 500 rounds and 4 different cleanings the gun has gotten to the point where I would consider it to "reliable." OMG sure glad I didn't buy it and immediately start carrying it and then have to use it! I would be dead! more

    Great little gun
    I’ve got two of the 9mm, but just WOW, I love these little guns. My 5-2, 100lb wife can do 100 rounds no problem so that speaks to the recoil because she’s pretty recoil sensitive but these little guns didn’t bothe...r her at all. In fact she likes it better than her G19 because it fits her small hand better. more

    Poor manufacturing quality
    Bought new. Went to range to shoot it. Fired Remington Umc 115 grain ball and Federal HST 150 grain jhp. Used 3 different magazines. Fired 50 rounds. About every 5-6 rounds, extractor claw let go of spent cartridge prema...turely, leaving it still 3/4 in barrel and then began loading of next round creating a jam. This happened continually throughout shooting of 50 rounds regardless of which magazine or ammunition I was using. I called Kimber to explain problem. They informed me that the only option was to send them the pistol and therefore not have it for 5-6 weeks. You would think that they would pay a local gunsmith so I could bring it by and have it fixed in a day or two being that it was defective out of the box and I spent nearly a thousand dollars on it. VERY DISAPPOINTED!!! Save yourself the trouble and buy a Sig Sauer or H&K or Glock. The rumors that you hear about Kimber quality slipping are ABSOLUTELY TRUE!! more

    So far, no good
    I purchased the 9mm Micro on sale before Christmas this year. The initial indication from the web said it would arrive before Christmas. It did not. When it finally arrived, one of the mags would not fit into the gun. I ...called Kimber and they said they would send a replacement. 3 weeks later it arrived. At the range, I find 10% of my ammo fails to fire. And that remains the same with other ammo. An old character at the range tells me I just need to keep shooting and it will eventually break in...... So much for my hope this would be my EDC. I have very little confidence in this gun. If I could, I would return the gun. I will give It some time before contacting Kimber for assistance, but I have low expectations at this point. more

    Feels great! I love shooting this gun very accurate for such a small gun not as much recoil as I expected either. Looks good and really easy to stirp and clean. After shooting this little hand gun my wife and I both went... out and bought one. Definitely worth the extra money. Doesn't feel cheap and plasticity more

    I went back and forth as to whether I should buy another 9mm. Turns out this is not JUST another 9mm, but, THE 9mm to own. It is a compact, but fits nicely in my man hands, and is easy to control. This Kimber Micro 9 is ...a work of art. You will not be disappointed! more

    Great package that has some warts
    Many FTF's and FTE's. When removing a loaded magazine, the top rnd would pop out of the mag. Having had a couple of other Kimbers, I knew that the extractor needed to be adjusted. Easy to do and test. After I tuned the e...xtractor, it runs awesomely!Easy carry size, the laser is fantastic for a CCW and 7 rnd capacity is good.I plan on adding some glow in the dark to the easy to see site's, which are bigger and better than the sites on the Sig P938 more

    Great personal defense pistol
    Amazing little pistol. It will stay on target at 10 yards with the crimson trace sight. Recoil is negligible for a 9mm. My only issue is disassembly. It has the characteristics of a 1911, but I can’t disassemble it for... cleaning without damaging the frame. Great value at the sale price. more

    micro 9
    Picked up one of the first Micro 9 stainless about a year ago for my wife. It just was not right from the start. Ran about 200 rounds for a good brake in, but got worse. Sent it back to Kimber not real happy, but gave th...em a chance to get it right. I'll have to say they did a great job, rebuilt it in the custom shop and shoots as well as any firearm I own. What bothers me is that they replaced every part on the pistol. I just don't know how it will stand up in the long run. We've ran about 250 rounds in it with no malfunctions of any kind. So for now its a great shooter. more

    The Micro( with Crimson Trace is a great carry gun. The fit and finish from Kimber is what you expect from Kimber, smooth quality products. The coats seem good and gaps and tolerances work tight and well together. The 9m...m version I bought has the power I was looking for but capacity is limited. I do wish Kimber or the aftermarket would offer options and more accessories. But overall great product and a smart buy. more

    Micro Desert Tan 9mm
    I also own a Kimber Ultra Two-Tone 1911 45cal and wasn't happy with the cleaning procedure of it but decided to give it another try and bought the Micro Desert Tan 9mm. I love the looks of the guns, the accuracy and the ...concealment of them but the cleaning procedure is terrible. They actually warn you in the owners manual to be careful putting the last little item on that holds the barrel and slide together and I was but still scratched the gun. This is a very poor system for a company that sells high priced hand guns. Take some advice from Glock and Sig Sauer. They sell quality firearms that are as easy to clean as they are to shoot. more

    Very nice pistol with one major flaw.
    I loved this gun in the store but unfortunately I hadn't ever shot one before nor had I known anyone who owned one. If you can get over the very very stiff trigger pull, then this guns for you. Do yourself a favor if you...'re considering this gun, have the store put a dummy round in the gun and aim at a target and squeeze the trigger. Research the options for adjusting the trigger before you assume you can have it worked on by a gunsmith. For me, it's a point and shoot piece. more

    Best Conceal Carry
    Kimber has a great quality name. With the Crimson Laser Factory Installed, the price was great for a balance between a pocket gun and a small carry gun. So I got accuracy , 9mm stopping power and a 7 shot clip which exte...nded hand coverage on the grip. The weight helps balance the kickback and the slide was easy enough for my female companion to rack a load. I will likely still keep the LCP II as a pocket gun but when wearing a coat, this is the perfect gun. My female companion, after using the Kimber, purchased the same model for herself. K more

When I switched to premium ammo like Hornady Critical Defense and Speer Gold Dot among ...others, the pistol shot like a dream. Flawless performance with the premium ammunition. The gun is very easy to conceal and the recoil was minimal. I love this pistol. more

    Very satisfied with this high quality pistol.Great for conceal carry,lightweight yet acceptable recoil. Love the 3 dot white iron sights for day and the crimsomtrace red laser for night and day. Great smooth safe 7 # tri...gger. And the two included mags 6 and 7. Very accurate shooter. The Kimber custom shop has hit a home run with this pistol. Racks easy after 200 rounds in case the lady shooters are interested. A Very good purchase. more

    wouldn't bet my life on it
    i bought the micro9 cse, intending to use it as a carry gun. it's a beautiful pistol, and is quite accurate. many people recommended a 500-round break-in with 147 grain ammo. well, i did that and found that only one prem...ium brand of ammo initially was reliable. everything else caused it to jam, a problem that gradually disappeared as i neared the magic 500. the manual recommends cleaning it every 100 rounds. my experience has been that my kimber starts jamming at that point. it's a pleasure to shoot otherwise, but as a concealed carry gun? i wouldn't bet my life on it! more

    Kimber Micro 9mm
    This gun is exactly what I wanted for a CCW. It is the right size and doesn't rock my wrist. The one item that should be improved is the 7 round magazine. And a second magazine should come with the original purchase .

    Excellent little gun
    This is a great little gun. Bought it a few days ago, been to the range put 200 rounds though it already. 147 grain for the first 100 and 115 grain for the 2nd 100 both Winchester. Cycled through without to many issues. ...Only thing I had happen was the slide would stay open on occasion (5 times total 4 with 147 1 with 115) as if it was out of ammo but it just simply didn't cycle properly. No jams to report. The crimson trace on off switch on the handle could be a little better it kept coming on despite me turning it off several times. All in all I really enjoyed shooting it. 7yrds roughly 3inch group not my best but certainly not my worst... more

    Best in Class in my Opinion
    Discreet carry conceal weapons exist by the dozens. Ruger, S&W, Sig, Colt, Kahr, Remington and I've owned one or more from each of those (except Colt). The Kimber Micro 9 CSE is one of the finest shooting, comfortabl...e and reliable. Price wise, Sig & Kahr are up there with this model, though the ones I had came with night sights. Went to the range for the 4th time with the CSE comparing it to the the P938, K9 and R51. All I can say is: I am very impressed with this. If it had the extended mag from the P938 it would be near perfect. It has a better finger extension. The CSE is easier for me to have repeat accuracy and follow up shots. It happens to have a longer sight radius which may be the advantage.The CSE trigger feels better than the P938. It is not an inexpensive firearm like a BG380 or LCP, but it is a 9mm but carries as easily as those. I've owned them as well and I would go for the Kimber again. Bought mine at the Turkey Friday sale and saved $100 so it was reasonable. Bought replacement night sights at the Kimber website on sale around Xmas. Go try one, compare it to the P938. As hard as I try, I cannot be as accurate with the P938. more

    Great little gun
    Purchased the Micro 9 CSE while on sale. Have been to the range twice shoots great, recoil is light for a small carry gun. Have been looking for a small 1911 style carry pistol and this is it! Like the 7rd extended mag t...hat comes with the CSE give good support and the G10 grips really able to keep secure for follow up shots. more

    Excellent handgun!
    After having a Ruger LCP for a while, I decided to upgrade to a different pocket sized carry gun. As I am fond of the 1911 design, I decided to look mainly at the Kimber micro, Sig P238, and Colt Mustang. I preferred the... look of the Kimber a bit more than the Sig and Colt so when they came on sale at Cabelas, I picked one up. I cannot be happier with this pistol. I have many Sigs and Colts and love them, but this is my first Kimber. This gun has never malfunctioned on me and is vastly easier to shoot than the Ruger LCP. I can actually shoot this pistol about the same as my full size 1911's which is usually unheard of for a gun this size. The gun is larger than the LCP, but it still can fit inside a pants pocket just fine with a holster. I would recommend this pistol to anyone looking for a discreet pocket carry gun that is easy to shoot. The only thing I wish was different was that it came with two magazines from the factory. more

    More Info on the Micro 9 cse
    I've had my new Micro 9 for a couple of weeks now and have been very pleased with it. I've tried several types of ammo including very inexpensive aluminum cased and it handles them all flawlessly.

    Kimber Micro .380
    This undoubtedly the best pistol I have ever purchased. It is far more accurate than I expected from such a small pistol, and the recoil, while significant, is less than expected. No failures of any kind through 300 roun...ds of break in. more

    Nice, it fits
    Picked this up for my wife, she's left handed but learned to shoot right handed; didn't take her long. She loved the look of the gun, shooting it feels great and it is accurate. I'm real happy with this firearm for her. ...The first 'out of the box' , would recommend cleaning inspecting even though it is ready to go. It seemed it racked easier once we shot some rounds through it and cleaned it. READY TO GO; RECOMMENDED. more

    Micro 9
    The Micro 9 is a very attractive pistol. It shoots well, it's easy to carry. I have not had any problems with the functionality of the gun. I also own a Sig P938 which I prefer over the Kimber Micro 9 . The Micro 9 doesn...'t come with night sights, an extended magazine, ambidextrous safety, or a lifetime warranty. I bought 2 kimber extended magazines, but they don't fit as well as my modified P938 magazines, the finger extension is too narrow and leaves a gap with the Kimber extended magazines. I like the gun and recommend it, but I think there are better choices for a pistol in this price range.. more

    It is light weight and smooth! Not much recoil! Its laser red dot helps with precision! I love it!

    Lives up to my previous Kimber experience
    I've have a Kimber Pro Carry 2 1911, but I wanted an additional weapon for concealed carry. It seemed natural to get something with similar trigger action, so I had familiarity with it. I felt like the Micro Advocate acc...omplished this and from the first time I fired it, it felt like an old friend. Additionally, the G10 grip was longer and more secure in my larger hands. Also, it's thinness and light weight adds to the comfort of concealment. Finally, though Kimbers get slammed for "break-in" period, I have put 300 rounds through it with 0 (nada) FTF or FTE. I love this little companion almost as much as my 1911! more

    Kimber Micro (s)
    I purchased a Kimber Micro .380 and a Kimber Micro 9 recently. One for my daughter, and one for my wife. When Christmas arrives, they will certainly want to go to the range. Great, well made guns for small hands.

    Excellent craftsmanship, solid, lightweight and compact. Aluminum frame hands down over Tupperware guns, very tight. Good groupings at the range. Only one failure to feed out of 50, could have been OE. Only small negativ...e is no dots on the sites on the stainless, have to jump up in price for that. Very happy with this purchase. more

    Micro 9 MM purchased online
    Quality hand gun, I also own a 45. I haven't been able to purchase extra clips not until later October. Cabela's Website was somewhat misleading. Detail listed the .380 with night sights, I wanted the 9 MM. Selected the ...9 MM, the site showed a picture of one with the laser grip. I purchased the 9 thinking it came with the night sights naturally for a lesser price than the one with laser sighting. Now I have to spend more money to get what I wanted. Next time I won't use your web site. more

    Best carry
    Bought the Micro Stainless 9mm. Shoots great no miss happ's at the range. Shot great even with cheap ammo, owned two sigs this gun is far better. Easy to take apart and clean the sig 290RS is very hard to get apart. This... gun has a nice thumb safety, which is great if you carry, looked at Smith & Wesson but does not have a safety. more

    Defective
    Purchased new at Cabellas. First day at range, the slide lock pin pops out when slide is racked. Sent to Kimber for repair. After over one month, the gun has not returned. Not what you want from a high priced gun.

    Hands down the best shooting 380 small frame I've ever shot well worth the money. Get the extended 7 round mag for even better feeling grip.

    "Born in your hand"
    Literally feels as if it was born in your hand. I experienced a short break in period (~ the first 30 rounds) with a few failure to load & eject. After that, she flawlessly launched almost 200 rounds of assorted JHP ...and FMJ ammo down range. Accuracy was great, hitting the bull from various distances all the way out to 25 yards! And did I mention this thing is comfortable? Recoil is mild and I could've shot all day without causing a sore hand. Extremely light and well balanced. I chose the Advocate bi-tone model with G10 grips, night sights, and extended mag. The night sights provide nice target acquisition and I like the extended mag allowing my pinky on the grip. I'm sure you can get a Sig P238 and be happy but this was my choice and I don't regret it. If you're not scared of the price - it's worth every penny! more

    Micro CDP Rocks!
    This little gun shoots crazy accurate! Small groupings, and soft recoil, not much more than a .22 magnum. Very comfortable in the hand, controls easy to reach. Trigger is fantastic. For any of you with weak hands or tend...ency to get trigger finger/thumb due to previous injuries, this slide is easy to rack, easy to take down, and overall a great little gun. Stick to Remington HTP for most reliable feeding for self-defense rounds. Tough choice, between the two, but I think i prefer the Micro CDP for daily carry over my G42. Now if I could just get the holster from Kimber I ordered weeks ago..... more
