Kimber Micro 9

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:

  • Micro 9 Two-Tone
  • Micro 9 CDP
  • Micro 9 Raptor
  • Micro 9 Crimson Carry

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:

I have the Kimber Micro Crimson Carry version with the factory installed Crimson Trace lasergrips, 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 with Crimson Trace Lasergrips.

Will the Micro 9 fit in a Kimber Micro 380 holster?

Unfortunately, it won’t as the Micro 9 is larger and longer than the 380. It really requires a holster specifically made for it.

Will the Micro 9 fit into a Sig P938 holster?

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.

I really want a holster with a thumb break for my Micro 9. Do you have anything that would work?

Most of the MTR Custom holster models listed below are available with an optional thumb break that can be added on. Any of the Don Hume holster models listed below that are shown with a thumb break are available to fit the Kimber Micro 9.

It's important to note that the Micro 9 is a single action pistol meaning that it will only fire when the hammer is in the cocked position. As such, both MTR Custom and Don Hume only offer thumb break options for the Kimber Micro 9 that function when the pistol is carried with the hammer cocked (commonly called the "Cocked & Locked", or "C&L" position). This means that the thumb break will ONLY snap closed when the hammer is in the cocked position. The thumb break actually goes over the back of the slide when the hammer is cocked, between the firing pin and the hammer. If you prefer to carry your Kimber Micro 9 with the hammer down, then a holster with a thumb break WILL NOT work properly for you.

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.

What's the best holster for a Kimber Micro 9?

As we've mentioned before on the website, answering the question of a "best" holster is nearly impossible as the answer is based entirely on opinion. And, that's probably not the question to be asking. The question to to be asking is "what's the best holster for my needs".

As the Micro 9 is very popular for concealed carry, most shoppers are looking for a CCW holster. Based on that, the IWB holsters for the Micro 9 are the popular holster style that we carry. However, depending on your needs, any of the holster models shown below are excellent options for a Kimber Micro 9.

Any model listed below is available in a Kimber Micro 9 holster version.
