Default New Kahr

Got my first Kahr last week. I wanted a pocket 9 so I got a CM9. After reading all the horror stories about Kahr I was apprehensive to say the least. But due the size and weight of the Kahr, thought I would give it a try. Cleaned and lubed it then went to the range. I shot 200 Rounds WWB to break it in as Kahr recommends. I had 1 FTF the first 50 rounds. The next 150 were flawless. Great shooter. I am now a Kahr fan.

They are good guns. Just follow the owners manual.

Good choice . I have pocketed one for the last 3 years. Still zero issues after 1500rounds. I see you have learned that the pistol is a good one . I really think that the breakin is waaay more about owner break in than handgun breakin. Ammo can also make or break a small heavier recoiling pistol.

Try a free from a bike shop piece of use 1.75" inner tube as a grip aid. 200 rounds in one setting ?? You have a great grip on you.

kahrs tend to be like lay's . You can't have just one. Save up !!

Great once you get used to it. Smooth,long and predictable. Much better than the garbage trigger on the bodyguard it replaced. I think it is the best of any small guns I have shot. I bought it for pocket carry. In a weird sort of way (except the trigger). It reminds me of my Glocks. Simple ,well built and reliable. But not like the Glocks, very comfortable in my pocket no matter what I'm wearing.

ontime I don't know whats the best one to buy . I would like to own one of the all matel versions but don't know what I would use it for. To heavy for me to carry to Purdy to just hang around. Guess it has more to do with how you carry other than in a pocket . The cw9 I have is the first one I bought and works very well as a iwb sized pistol. It is for all practical needs the small size as a shield but can be bought in 9mm, 40 and 45 . I can say the tp series is a commander sized pistol that an easy shooter but don't expect to find one to handle. Just not a typical kahr on a shelf.

If anyone has ever held a 1911 and likes the feel and grip angle but want something with out a safety and short SA trigger for defense then Kahris it. The TP series had the same size thinness and grip angle of a commander and then gets smaller from there.

glockrenegade The trigger pull on a kahr is a very smooth no stack 3/8 stroke DA type trigger. Full release needed for a reset. If you ever had some trigger time behind a really good old DA revolver trigger or custom tuned da revolver trigger than your close to a kahr trigger pull, just shorter. Many of use change the stricker spring to a wolff RP spring. That and a few hundred rounds fired will leave you with a trigger pull between 5 and 5 1/2lbs. Brand new they are around 6 to 6 1/2lb brand new but some say 7 lbs !! It not a target pistol anymore than the average shooter is a target shooter. Bit it simply works well.

"Horror stories"? I had a really weird problem with a 45acp Kahr, but customer service did the company proud and I was very satisfied.

My 9mm Kahrs, on the other hand, have never given me any problems. I, too, had a failure within my first box, but never again. I am always surprised that the recoil is so much lighter than the other guns of the same size. I've owned 5 Kahrs, own a P380 and CM9 right now, and would love a P9 someday soon.
