This is an amazing all metal carry pistol. Weighs in just over 20 oz, and is very shootable. I can hit man-size targets all the way out to 30 yds, which is amazing for a pistol this size. The trigger is all Kahr, and smooth as glass with a crisp break. I love the fact Crimson trace makes the replacement laser grips, rather than the system that hangs off the end of the barrel. I have the Elite model, which rounds all edges for super smooth holstering and easy mag changes. All in all, I'm still amazed you can get a 40 S&W in a package this small that's built like a tank, yet carries so well inside the waistband. - J. G.
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.
