Anderson Manufacturing, a relatively young company within the firearms realm, released the Kiger-9C Pro pistol at SHOT Show 2023, as an upgraded version of its Kiger-9C pistol. The compact Kiger-9C Pro pistol is said to bring versatility to your everyday carry.
The Kiger-9C Pro was supposedly developed with feedback from consumers in mind. It has the polymer frame from the Kiger-9C with the optimized beaver tail, aggressive texturing, undercut trigger guard, and a Picatinny rail that is forward on the frame under the barrel. The frame updates give enhanced controls, and the Pro version has an extended magazine and slide release.
Chambered in 9mm, the striker-fired Kiger-9C Pro is a short-recoil operated semi-auto pistol with a 416 stainless steel barrel and slide. The slide is skeletonized for a reduction in weight with three ports on each side and one on top, all located frontside. The rear sides of the slide have serrations for ultimate handling and easy manipulation.
The frame has an aggressive stippling grip, slide texture, and cuts, the user can be confident in the grip regardless of the conditions. Additionally, the frame rails are over-molded to enhance the overall rigidity. Between the frame and the fluted, crowned barrel give it better muzzle velocity and accuracy.
The Kiger-9C Pro steel slide boasts a suppressor-heigh front with a dovetail rear sight. On top of that, the Pro is optics-ready with a Ruggedized Miniature Reflex (RMR) pattern optic cut on the slide. The Pro has a fluted 3.91” long barrel with a DLC-coated barrel with a recessed crown. The steel chemistry combined with the SLC coating makes it strong, heat resistant, and durable.
The pistol has overall dimensions that make it perfect for everyday carry. At just 7” long, 5.5” tall, and 1” wide, it’s compact and discreet. With all these features of the Kiger-9C Pro, the overall package weight is just a pound unloaded, and just 1.6 pounds fully loaded with a 15+1 capacity.
The Anderson Manufacturing Kiger-9C Pro comes from the company with a 15-round magazine, carrying case, target, and a lifetime warranty. It has an MSRP of $539. It also appears that the company has a suppressor-ready (SRS) series Pro coming soon that will have a threaded barrel.
