On the range:
Experts found the Micro 9 small enough for pocket carry.
The single-action trigger was also smooth and clean and actually felt
lighter than 7 lbs. because of the short, sliding trigger that is the
hallmark of the 1911.
At 25 yards, the average group was about 4.5 inches. Other pistols clearly
outperform this pistol in accuracy, but for its size and with a short
barrel of 3.15 inches, gun experts found it not too bad for a miniaturized
1911. This is because pistols of this size are manufactured for distances
not exceeding 7 yards where they are most accurate.
Over-all, the Kimber Micro 9 is an excellent pistol with its ease of carry,
shootability and its 9 mm chambering.
