    Default Gen 2 Kahr trigger on YouTube....what happened?

    I was just killing time going thru various YouTube vids on Kahr pistols and came across this one...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fzOTSaeDSIA talking about the new safety lock like trigger. I have never seen one and this video is from March 2015. ????

    Maybe they realized that it didn't make sense to change the greatest, most unique feature of their product to be just like everybody else's.

    When the hammer drops? The internal hammer? Is she hammered?

    American Handgunner did an article on the Gen 2 guns in 2016, https://americanhandgunner.com/kahr-tp9-gen2-premium/ , but to my knowledge they are still vaporware.

    There are some Gen 2 tidbits in this post johnH made in an "S" series thread:

The new guns have an accessory rail, front cocking serrations, the Gen 2 mag catch (a bit easier to reach), and 3 dot versions of the C sights. They ship with two mags.

    As for why they are C based, Kahr wisely determined that the price point of a Gen 2 based on the P series would be higher than most buyers would want to pay. The C series dominates sales and I can tell you from working the conventions that probably 95% of folks asking about guns are after a C. The MSRP on the SW9 is $495, and the ST9 $460. Street will of course be lower.

    On the trigger, the decision was made to stick with the current Kahr trigger for the S series guns. A lot of shooters seem to prefer it. Again, I can tell you that from convention visitor comments. I hear a lot of people say they love the trigger compared to other DAO guns. Kahr guns have a smoother pull than most (if not all) of its competitors' DAO pistols. I think some of us with longer history in shooting tend to compare triggers of all handguns to nice 1911s (including yours truly).

    The first guns to ship will be the SW9 (CW/P sized), in 9mm. They are already being assembled at the factory. After that the ST9, my favorite of the two but I like T sized pistols. I asked about the next caliber and was told 45 is very likely. I would not want to set a time window for that as it is still being designed. I think an ST45 will be huge in the market. Think polymer framed, single stacked, in between an Officers and a Commander model 1911. Very flat. Very easy to carry. Still plenty of grip for your hand.

    Hope that helps, and holler if you have questions. I can tell you Crossbreed is on the ball to get holsters ready if you are wondering about that aspect of the new guns. They are local to me so have a connection so to speak...
    Regards,

    Ha! When she said that, I had to rewind and look closely at the video. If she makes a blunder like that and fails to correct herself, then everything else out of her mouth is questionable.
