Kiger party!

Anderson Manufacturing is now selling the new Kiger 9C Pro 9mm striker fired polymer framed pistol. The Kiger 9C Pro sports features that should be appreciated by beginner and expert shooters alike. Its contoured frame with grippy and assertive texturing includes an undercut trigger guard in addition to a Picatinny slotted dust cover in order to mount accessories like lights or lasers.

The Kiger 9C Pro’s slide is milled out from a 416 R stainless steel billet and finished with a black DLC (diamond like coating) finish. The slide has extra work on it such as lightening cuts near the muzzle in addition to coming from the factory milled for use with any optic that uses a Trijicon RMR footprint. The RMR footprint is compatible with the Trijicon RMR itself as well as the Trijicon SRO in addition to red dot sights made by Holosun and many other manufacturers. This means that Kiger 9C Pro shooters a wide amount of mounted red dot choices. Besides using this popular footprint optic, the Kiger 9C Pro ships from the factory with steel, blacked out suppressor height sights as standard, allowing you to co-witness your dot with the backup sights.

Inside of the slide is a 416 R stainless steel recessed crown match barrel that measures 3.91 inches long. Like its slide, this barrel is also finished in a black DLC coating. This barrel has a 1:10 barrel twist like many other leading 9mm handguns sold today.

Working With Mini Shotshells

When someone asks a store clerk for 9 mm ammunition, generally the clerk can zero in on the customer’s needs by asking a couple questions: Target or defense? OK then, 124- or 147-grain projectiles? And, away the happy customer goes with a box of cartridges.
