Anyone know how difficult the slide pull is? The wife is not the strongest woman on the planet.

Not bad at all. But the trigger needs some work.

Have her hold the pistol close to her body, better leverage. Then tell her to grip top of slide pull the slide as she pushes the lower. This is how my daughter does my XDM.

My Micro .380 was very easy to rack and was a VERY good little pistol.

My micro 9 the slide is easy to pull back - easier than other 9mm pocket pistols that I have owned. And the trigger on mine is quite good. I have the 2 tone model (stainless frame, blued slide). I've not done it yet but I do intend to put night sights on it. Earl

Same here. My wife and I both have the Micro .380 and she does not have strong hands or a lot of upper body strength. I taught her the push/pull technique and it allows her to rack the slide on most of our pistols. (Can't talk her into shooting one of my 1911's) She also has a S&W M&P Shield but carries her Kimber because it hides in her purse holsters better.

I'm glad someone else asked about these. I'm considering a Micro 9 for myself and I'd like to hear comments on accuracy and reliability. And how closely does the feel resemble a 1911? Not too worried about how stiff the slide is LOL.

As said, mine is .380 but the frames are the same size. A little info:

Mine is accurate enough for a pocket carry pistol and has been reliable. I've owned 2 of them so far, liked them both. It has the same pointing ability as a 1911 so if you like a 1911 you should like the micro. As for feel, it feels good particularly for me with the extended floor plate as that gives your pinky finger a place to rest. It won't feel quite like a 1911 though since it's much smaller and unlike a 1911 there is no grip safety. Operating characteristics other than the grip safety are the same as a 1911 and will feel familiar.
