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 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.
I was looking to purchase a Kel-tec PF 9, which was hard to find. I went to all the local shops and kept seeing the Kahr CW line. The Kahr just fit my hand, but my budget said Kel-tec... When I found a PF 9 I was excited and ready to go purchase it. Once I held it I knew it would not be a fun gun to shoot. So I waited another week, decided to step up to a 40 cal Kahr and have been thrilled with it. For the extra $100 it seems like a real gun, not a toy. It's lite but sturdy. Very tight though, first 30-50 rounds, had alot of misfeeds. Last week I shot 100 plus rounds of cheap Walmart ammo with no problems at all. I am very happy with this pistol. - J. G.
