The KIGER-9c – Anderson Manufacturing’s First Handgun

Anderson Manufacturing is most well known for its lineup of AR pattern rifles and components that can often be had for an affordable price. Today Anderson Manufacturing has just announced the introduction of its first-ever handgun offering the KIGER-9c. The KIGER-9c is designed for modern versatility and will be compatible with GLOCK 19 Gen3 aftermarket parts, and will also feature a forward Picatinny rail and a host of other modernized features that should make it an attractive offering for the defensive pistol market.

The KIGER-9c – Anderson Manufacturing’s First Handgun

Anderson Manufacturing, the leading producer of AR-15 lower receivers, has put decades of experience in precision firearms manufacturing into their first handgun, the new, 100% American-made Anderson Kiger 9c. Inspired by the wild mustangs of southeast Oregon, the Kiger is an independent, bold and powerful take on a compact, 15+1 capacity, 9mm semi-auto pistol.

Built on an original polymer frame, with over-molded front and rear slide rails, the Anderson KIGER-9c is a striker-fired handgun with strong lines from its serrated stainless steel, DLC-coated slide and barrel to its aggressive grip texturing and extended beavertail. Thumb and forefinger texturing has also been mirrored on each side of the frame and the trigger guard undercut for enhanced handling and ergonomics. A short, crisp trigger pull allows for confident, quick and accurate shots on target while an integrated, beveled magazine well with improved channel allows for reliable magazine changes. Under the barrel, a forward Picatinny rail provides easy mounting of weapon lights and accessories.

The Anderson Manufacturing KIGER-9c is available now directly from the Anderson Manufacturing website for a price of $429.00 which puts it on par with the current pricing of a stock Glock 19 Gen3 pistol but obviously comes with a lot more modernized features. Hopefully sometime soon, provided that the KIGER-9c is reliable, Anderson will come out with an optics-ready version of this new pistol.

The Kiger is the next step in our continued commitment to developing exceptional firearms at an affordable price, and we’re proud to offer gun owners a handgun that is 100% American made and 100% Anderson.”
