Kimber has released a new high capacity micro 9 to compete with the growing number of this style firearm. The R7 Mako is an 11+1 or 13+1 capacity gun that is designed for concealed carry. Barrel length is 3.37 inches.
There are some things about the Mako that are a little different, however. For example, the pistol has an ejection port that is a side-only ejector. On the other high capacity micro 9 pistols, the top is more open.
One thing that I’m pretty stoked about for this one is that for what seems to be the first time, Kimber is releasing a gun that seems to be on par in the price department with the others in this category.
There are two options.
The optics ready version has an MSRP of $599. The other option has a Crimson Trace 1500 Reflex Sight pre-installed with an MSRP of $799.
I’ve watched a few videos of folks shooting this little pistol and I’m pretty happy to see its performance so far.
Stay tuned because I’ll be getting my hands on one next month.
