Default Kahr?

I got to fire a Kahr .45 today. It felt surprisingly nice. But I had never heard of Kahr. Anybody have any experience with them? How do you like them? Etc.

Yah good guns. The p series i think is the more expensive model. My buddy got the cm9 and i love shooting it. Triggers alittle different feel to get use to.

Hi Saidan, Kahrs are good guns. Is there a model you are looking at, or just the price range?

The Kahrs are upscale self-defense handguns. What makes them different: the smoothest DA trigger pull in the class, but also the longest; the patented offset feeding ramp that lowers the bore axis; and the uncommonly slim grips relative to the frame, good for smaller hands.

Because of the longish trigger reset, the Kahr is hardly a speed shooter. But it is very enjoyable on the range. You know you are holding a fine piece of machinery.

I have had a Kahr P380 for several years! It is a fine pistol and easy to conceal!
My best friend has a 9mm Kahr and has had it for several years.
No complaints here!

Had my PM9 for several years now & carry it daily. Great gun, great trigger, superbly accurate & ultra reliable except with Winchester PDX-1. Do not use PDX-1. It shuts the gun down & must be dismantled to be cleared (or use a big-a#* screwdriver, which is dangerous). They are expensive but worth it. Have used it in BUG matches too & it is so easy to shoot & does well.

Did you check out kahrs site yet?? I bought my first one off a PO'd cw9 owner almost 6 years ago. been a great pistol for me. Had to look them up to see what I bought so cheaply . Liked it enough to buy a pocket pistol from them, cm9 and last year a tp40. That is now my primary CC piece. The 45 versions will use 1911 mags , some with a little un-needed metal removed , some as they come. depends on the mag. Like so many smaller pistol there s whiners and likers and like all makes there a few turds get out. So far mine have a few thousand rounds thru them and are 100% reliable.

Do you know what model you shot as they make 3 size's and 5 models of the polymer 45 soon to be 6 models. The lower price CW45 and the higher P45 are the most popular. but the TP and CT are great carry pistols too. My favorite.

Visit kahr talk too.

I rented a, I believe a CW9. I really like the feel of the gun when I'm not shooting.

Shooting was a different story. It beat up my hand. But it was a fine shooter and I could probably get used to it if I shot it more.

I don't begrudge the gun. It just wasn't the most comfortable shooting in MY hand.

Sometimes I still think I should rent one and see if I can get used to it, because I like the feel of it when I'm holding it.

We have both a Kahr CW9 and CW40.
Not a bad pistol but you have to run 200 rounds thru them to have a good smooth action.
Instruction book that came with them states this also.

Wife likes the 9 as it's light and easy to carry.

Sort of like a slimmer glock with a smooth revolver type trigger and reset or like a sig p250. Not my favorite but I do enjoy shooting a buddy's when when go to the range together. I think his is a cm9. I almost got a cw45 a couple of times when they were in the $360 range but I passed and picked other guns. While I like the trigger it is totally different than all my other semi autos and that is why I passed, I think


Never enough guns or ammo
