    Default New member here, gun on the way

    Just ordered a CM9 from classicfirearms for $299 plus shipping. I should pick it up by the end of the week. Own several guns but this was actually my first new gun purchase. I can't wait to shoot it and hoping to get one that doesn't have issues feeding the ammo. I know it is part of the break in as I have a Kimber compact 45 that has the same issues and was told by them it was normal during the break in. Only about 150-200 rounds through it. I am guessing the Kahr is similar with the tight tolerances. We'll see.

    Let me be the first to welcome you -
    Welcome.

    And yes Kahr too says 200 rounds or so before you put it in to service. Can confirm, my CW45 was a bear the first 75 rounds or so, I don't think I had a string of fire more than 4 rounds consecutive - then got better and better until now after 700 +/- rounds smooth as butter with no worries at all when I carry it.

    Good luck and hope to hear back with a range report when you get a chance.

    CM9 is the perfect pocket pistol

    I bought a CM9 last summer. I got a good one. 775 rounds with not a single issue.

    I hope mine runs that well. Just picked it up this evening. Cleaned and lubed. Been working the slide tonight, probably a couple hundred times or more. Raining here the next couple days but hoping to shoot it this weekend. We'll see. I know whey everyone gets grips to put on them. I feel it in my hands just from racking the slide..ha.

    Welcome and I hope you enjoy your kahr. I have just over 400 rds through my cm9 but I did have one double feed on rd 397 which surprised me. No other failures. A breeze to carry.

    Got it Wednesday. Cleaned, racked, left locked back overnight. Shot 50 rounds yesterday evening as it was getting dark. Ran perfect. No failures and I was actually pretty accurate with it. I was definitely impressed.

    Goid news there. Mine has been excellent for more rounds than I know.
    The only thing better than having all the guns and ammo you'd ever need would be being able to shoot it all off the back porch.

    Want to see what will be the end of our country as we know it???
