I'm really pleased with this .380: exactly what I was looking for. It is extremely light, small, and in particular is very narrow -- all of which lead to easy concealability. A bit pricey, but worth it. I've shot it once, and without a glitch of any kind over 136 rounds and two different types of ammo. Happy with the accuracy at 15 yards, as well. My understanding is that Crimson Trace is coming out with a laser guard for it, but a laser grip would be great -- hopefully, that's coming soon. Haven't decided upon a holster type yet (anke, IWB, pocket)...so far, just dropping it into a jacket pocket (though, coming warm weather will limit that). - E. A.
I give this pistol high marks. I am a fan of the 1911 45 ACP, and yet am always looking for a light conceal carry weapon in a minimum of 40 cal. This fits the bill. I have found the gun to be reliable and I can shoot it well. Keep looking for one lighter! I've not had jamming problems. I think many problems with well designed autos jamming is the ammo. - J. M.
Good choice, but violent to shoot in 40S&W. Own several of the larger frame, in 40S&W, and they are fantastic. Used one for CHL and had no problem even at longer range. The smaller gun is perfect for lady's purse or pocket. They seem less troubled by the smaller item.
The extended grip magazine from Kahr ( for their short handle or smaller frames ) will not work correctly. I do not fault them, as this is a difficult item and the price is still quite low.
I shall try to get this corrected by a local gunsmith, or perhaps just try to add a small dot of solder sufficient to move the magazine either forward or rearward ( in the manner of a 'shim' ) on the exterior front or rear surface, in order to effect a cure. Second, or follow up round will not feed from extended magazine. Of course, the average encounter, as per statistics, does not involve but some 2-3 rounds. - L. H.
I own and this in a .9 cal and Im very happy with the power and comfort. CW9 is a slim gun. I did Have to do a "spring" job on my gun though it would cycle for crap. But now its a ok. Trigger is very smooth in the Kahrs. I feel very safe with these guns. - J. C.
