Henderson, NV – Hogue Incorporated is proud to announce the newest additions to their line of rubber OverMolded firearm grips. “We are very pleased to have added a grip for Kimber’s immensely popular Micro 9 to our catalog,” said grip designer Pat Hogue. “This pistol was built to be a smaller version of the classic 1911 making it a very popular choice for concealed carry. While the firearm is perfect for shooters with smaller hands, for those wanting to hold the firearm with a full grip we also offer our extended magazine base pad. The grip and base pad work seamlessly together to add an additional finger groove allowing a full hand grasp on the firearm.”
Hogue’s rubber grips are known for their long lasting durability and comfort and the Micro 9 grip is no exception. Designed to offer maximum comfort to your shooting experience, the Micro 9 grip complements the firearm’s natural aesthetics. The pistol grip feels soft and resilient in your hand, yet is molded with reinforcing inserts which engage directly with the firearm frame and grip screws for a rock-solid grip-to-frame fit. The finger grooves lead into a gentle palm swell that has been carefully designed to fit naturally in the hand for instinctive handling. The grip is textured with Hogue’s familiar Cobblestone™ pattern that provides an efficient non-slip, non-irritating grip on the rubber.
Hogue offers an extended magazine base pad for the Kimber Micro 9 as well. Once installed on the base of the firearm’s magazine, the base pad extends the grip on the pistol to create a third finger groove for full hand support. The base pad provides extra grab for quicker reloads and well as protects the magazine during quick reload ground drops. The base pad is only compatible with Kimber’s 7-round magazines.
Both the grip and the base pad are built from a long-lasting durable thermoplastic elastomer compound. This rubber ages very gracefully and keeps a firm, grippy feel throughout the life of the grip. It will not harden, split or crack with age or use. The Micro 9 grip has an MSRP of $26.95 for black, and $29.95 for OD green, flat dark earth, aqua, pink and purple. The extended base pad has an MSRP of $9.95 for black and $10.95 for the matching colors.
Hogue grips are manufactured in their family-owned and operated facilities under the direct supervision of the Hogue family.
