    I'm not one to turn away from a better, easier to use sight that helps my aging eyes. My eyes aren't getting better. I'm glad sight technology is. My preference is to have the gun machined to...

    This thread begs the question; what is the life of the recoil spring in the various models? Is there a standard or suggested round count published by Kahr? I recall from many years ago that the...

    Kahr put a dimple on the inside bottom of the slide when they went to the new sight cut. That's the easy way to tell which sights fit which gun.

    I would say that a previous owner refinished this T9 as I don't think Kahr made the T9 in a black finish. What do you mean by a "date code"? The serial number??

    Beautiful gun. Congrats. I think...

    The pictured K9 is an early one. You can tell by the frame. Rare may not be exactly the term but nickel Kahrs are not numerous and fairly hard to find. I don't know which process was used.

    Early K9s were carbon steel, not stainless, and coated in a variety of finishes. Those finishes were usually black but a few were nickel plated. These are somewhat rare. Kahr switched to stainless...

    I've bought from them in the past with no trouble. They must have changed but not for the better. A shame.

    The S9 get a polygonal barrel and night sights. Not much of a radical change IMHO. I wonder when or if Kahr will make a optic ready model.

    I've had several forms of the Thunder/Firestorm. I've only kept one model, the T-22. The Thunder Plus as I recall was acceptably accurate and reliable. My biggest complaint was that it didn't...

    My binary conversion is a bit weak. What's that in real money? $100 or so?

    Not quite on topic but I was amazed to get my tiny federal refund last Saturday. Took a week! That's the fastest ever.

    You're saying a T9 barrel fits into a K9 slide and operates just fine? I always thought there we differences between the two.
