Default What is the Slimmest 9mm right now?

Anyone know what the current slimmest 9mm handgun model is right now?

I'm thinking of getting a CC permit here pretty soon and my Glock 19 is still pretty uncomfortable with an IWB holster. Feels like a shoved a brick down my pants.

I'm a pretty big guy, so that may be why.

Ive done some research and I think the Kel-Tec PF9 might be the slimmest...

i would bet the colt new agent would be on top. i would opt for it in 45acp rather than 9mm. it does come in both. its 13/16" wide



mine in 45acp. its just barely wider than the magazine-clip

Kahr's are very slim. Pretty easy to find the answers you need with a little Google and a visit to Bud's online to find current 9mm models...

Every add that Kahr runs in the magazines right now are about how slim their pistols are. I know that Walther has some very slim pistols as well.

The Colt New Agent specs

Model 0781OD

Overall Length: 5.72"
Barrel length: 3"
Width of slide: .910"
Width of grip (including stocks at magazine well): 1.135"
Trigger pull: 4 pounds
Magazine capacity (.45 Automatic): 7 rounds
Twist: 1 turn in 16 inches.
MSRP: $885

If thats not your cup-o-tea, another slim firearm is the Walther PPS

Model: PPS
Caliber: 9mm
Length: 6.3"
Height: 4.4"
Overall Width/Width without slidestop lever and takedown buttons: 1.04"/.91"
Barrel Length: 3.2"

Trigger Pull: 6.1 lbs.
Frame: Black Polymer

Personally, I'd go with the Colt, even though the Walther is a hair thinner.

Well, so far the PF9 is still the slimmest 9mm with a width of .88"

I'm going to look into that Colt New Agent. I was wanting a .45, so maybe I can kill two birds with one stone...

if you dont like the trench sight the defender is the same gun with regular sights but not the slim grip panels.
