Kimber Launches the All-New Micro 9 Rapide Black Ice 1911 Pistol
TROY, AL, November, 2020 – Kimber Mfg., a premier American firearms manufacturer, is expanding its line of Micro 9 models with the addition of the new Micro 9 Rapide (Black Ice). New for 2021, the Micro 9 Rapide (Black Ice) takes design cues from the highly coveted 1911 Rapide (Black Ice), adding a new level of refinement and elegance to the Micro 9 lineup, all while enhancing comfort, concealment and function.
The Micro 9 Rapide (Black Ice) is chambered for the 9mm cartridge but includes many of the beloved aspects that continue to make the 1911 Rapide (Black Ice) an overwhelming success. Features include stepped cocking serrations, slide lightening cuts for quicker lock time, distinctive V-shaped patterned trigger, eye-catching two-tone KimProTM finish, DLC coated barrel for extreme durability in any environment, flush-fitting magwell and front-strap featuring Kimber’s StiplexTM pattern for a positive grip.
The Micro 9 Rapide (Black Ice) is a striking showpiece that’s built to perform, all in a size designed to be carried with confidence. The Micro 9 Rapide (Black Ice) also features a stainless-steel, match-grade 3.15-inch barrel. To further enhance the firearm’s shooting performance, the Micro 9 Rapide (Black Ice) includes Tru-Glo® TFX™ Pro day/night sights, black G10 grips and a premium aluminum trigger that breaks cleanly at a factory-set 7.0 pounds.
The Micro 9 Rapide (Black Ice) provides the functionality of its 1911 counterpart in a smaller and lighter package. Measuring 4.07 inches tall, 1.08 inches wide and 6.1 inches long, the gun has a minimal footprint while maintaining the familiarity of the 1911 platform. The firearm’s weight is ideal for concealed carry at a mere 15.6 ounces thanks to its lightweight aluminum frame. In short, the new Micro 9 Rapide (Black Ice) is what all other micro-style guns should be.
