Slick, Invisible, Deadly: Kimber’s Micro 9 Rapide (Black Ice)



Kimber’s Rapide (Black Ice) just got even more slippery…for the bad guy.

When Kimber released their 1911 Rapide (Black Ice), the world got a lot more slippery for the Bad Guys out there. Kimber, long a leader in creating high-end 1911 handguns, already knew they had a winner in the Rapide (Black Ice). Certainly, 1911 fans everywhere agreed, but the “gun guys” among us were already raising our hands and asking when they’d have it in a micro version. Today, Kimber answered with their new Micro 9 Rapide (Black Ice).

You’ll see on first glance that the Micro 9 Rapide (Black Ice) takes design cues from the its big brother, adding a new level of refinement and elegance to the Micro 9 lineup. Of course, as with all of Kimber’s Micro 9 offerings, it boasts the utmost in comfort, concealment and function. The Micro 9 Rapide (Black Ice) is chambered for the 9mm cartridge, but includes many of the beloved traits that continue to make the 1911 Rapide (Black Ice) an overwhelming success.

Features include stepped cocking serrations, slide lightening cuts for quicker lock time, a distinctive V-shaped patterned trigger, eye-catching two-tone KimPro finish, DLC coated barrel for extreme durability in any environment, flush-fitting magwell, and front strap featuring Kimber’s Stiplex pattern for a positive grip. All in all, it is a striking showpiece that’s built to perform, all in a size designed to be carried with confidence.

The Micro 9 Rapide rocks a stainless-steel, match-grade 3.15-inch barrel, enhanced with Tru-Glo TFX Pro day/night sights, black G10 grips and a premium aluminum trigger that breaks cleanly at a factory-set 7 pounds. Measuring 4.07 inches tall, 1.08 inches wide and 6.1 inches long, the gun has a minimal footprint but maintains 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.; MSRP: $879.00.
