Over the last few years, there has been a significant resurgence in the popularity of smaller single action 9mm pistols. This was kicked off with the introduction of the Sig P938 in 2012, which was based on the success of the smaller Sig P238. The 938 was a huge success for Sig, and other handgun manufacturers took notice. For hardcore fans of single action shooters, the concept of a miniature 9mm that operates like a 1911 has always been intriguing for those scenarios where one can’t carry a true 1911.

In 2013, Kimber introduced the Kimber Micro 380, which was an immediate success. However, within a month of its release, Kimber fans were asking for a 9mm version of the Micro 380. In 2016, Kimber answered those requests by introducing the Kimber Micro 9.
The Micro 9 has the exact controls as those found on the Micro 380, but is actually slightly larger than the 380. Very much like the same path Kimber took when the Micro 380 was released, Kimber also introduced the following Micro 9 variants:
So far, the Micro 9 has had very favorable reviews. Its distant Kimber pistol relative, the Kimber Solo, had a reputation for being extremely finicky with ammo, but the Micro 9 seems to eat most all 9mm ammo relatively well.
Most pocket 9mm pistols have a reputation for being great for CCW, but not so pleasant at the range. Various reviews so far seem to indicate that the Micro 9 is manageable to shoot and performs well for its diminutive size.
Here are some commonly asked questions that we’ve seen regarding the Micro 9:
#1 – I have the Kimber Micro Crimson Carry version but I’m having trouble finding a holster for it. Do you have anything to fit it?
Yes, any of the holsters listed below are available in a version to fit the Micro 9 Crimson Carry.
#2 – Will the Micro 9 fit in a holster made for the Micro 380?
Unfortunately, it won’t as the Micro 9 is larger and longer than the 380. It really requires a holster specifically made for it.
#3 – Will the Micro 9 fit into a holster made for any other similarly sized single action 9mm/380 pistols such as the Sig P938 or anything similarly sized?
While the Micro 9 and the Sig P938 are very, very close in size, they aren’t an exact match. Depending on the holster brand and how closely the holster is finished, the Micro 9 may or may not fit in a holster made for the P938. It really just depends on each individual brand.
#4 – I really want a holster with a thumb break for my Micro 9. Do you have anything that would work?
Most any of the MTR Custom holster models listed below have the option where a thumb break can be added to the holster. However, it’s important to note that, since the Micro 9 is a single action pistol model, MTR builds their thumb break models for use with the pistol being carried in the cocked and locked position (hammer cocked). If you are interested in a thumb break configuration with the hammer being carried down, please contact us before placing an order.
#5 – While I see several holster models listed below for the Micro 9, I don’t see any Don Hume models being displayed? Does Don Hume offer a holster made for the Micro 9?
As it stands right now, Don Hume does not offer any holsters to fit the Micro 9, but they are working on offering fits for the Micro 9.
#6 - I have the new Micro 9 Stainless model, but I'm having trouble finding a holster to fit it. Do you have anything that will fit?
For starters, all the Kimber Micro 9 variants are built on the same frame, so any variant will fit a holster made for the base Micro 9. So, to answer your question, yes, we offer holsters to fit the Micro 9 SS model.
Any holster listed below is available in a version to fit the Kimber Micro 9 9mm.
