Kimber Launches Micro 9 Version of its Popular Rapide Black Ice 1911


Last year, Kimber launched an updated 1911 that drew massive attention. The Rapide Black Ice featured variants in 9mm, .45 ACP and 10mm, upgraded with enhanced components in a very stylized package. Now Kimber updates the line with the Micro 9 Rapide Black Ice. And it’s every bit as cool as the original.

The Micro 9 Rapide takes design cues from the original. As such, it adds a new level of refinement to the Micro 9 lineup. The Micro 9 Rapide comes in 9mm. It features stepped cocking serrations and slide lightening cuts for quicker lock time. A distinctive V-shape patterned trigger, two-tone KiimPro finish and DLC coated barrel enhance performance. A flush-fitting magwell and front-strap with Stiplex pattern help deliver a sure grip.
