This year, the Micro 9 joins ranks with the .380 Micro introduced in 2012, offering the same small-scale 1911 ergonomics, a single action trigger, superior safety features and all-metal construction.


The Micro 9 barrel and slide is machined from stainless steel for resistance to moisture, while the frame is shaped from the aluminum for integrity and strength. One of the most important Micro design advantages is a single action trigger with a short, smooth pull that ensures accuracy and confidence. The thumb safety, slide release and magazine release are pure 1911 in design. Other standard features include a lowered and flared ejection port for flawless ejection and a beveled magazine well for fast, positive loading. Sights are steel — not plastic — and mounted in machined dovetails for additional durability.

The Micro 9 is currently available in three models: Micro 9 Stainless, Micro 9 Two-Tone and Micro 9 Crimson Carry. Ideal for any shooter, the Micro 9 will set a new level of expected quality and shootability to the 9mm micro-compact for concealed carry, everyday carry and home protection. Suggested retail price starts at $654.

The TLE (Tactical Law Enforcement) II was originally designed with and for today's elite law enforcement units as a no-frills workhorse. Kimber has refined the TLE family by adding a flat top slide and an integrated mainspring lanyard slot to aid in carry and retention. New aggressively textured black and green G-10 grips complete the look of this defensive firearm and provide a positive grip. TLE models are offered in three different sizes, two finishes and three caliber options, and some are available with a Kimber Tactical Rail and/or a barrel threaded for suppression. Suggested retail price starts at $1,007.

Shooting 600 Yards with .300 Blackout

Shooting 600 Yards with .300 Blackout

The .300 Blackout cartridge was developed to provide greater effectiveness than a 9mm at short and medium ranges when fired from a short-barreled suppressed firearm. Just because the cartridge wasn't designed to go long doesn't mean Rifles & Optics Editor Tom Beckstrand won't take it there, using a large-format pistol, no less. Armed with SIG Sauer's 9-inch-barreled MCX Virtus Pistol loaded with Black Hills' 125-grain TMK ammunition, Beckstrand attempts to ring steel at 600 yards with help from Hornady's 4DOF ballistic calculator in this segment of “Long Range Tech.”
