    Default Gunbroker Auction Question...

    I need a second opinion. Is this accually a MK40 "Elite" or a regular MK40 with night sights?

    I can't say for sure but I thought Elite's had Elite on at least one side.
    This shows sold now so maybe a moot point.

    Looks like a regular MK40 to me.

    Yep, in script on the extractor side dust cover.

    The elite mk should be more melted than standard, tapered mag well, and polished internals. Might say elite, might not. Either way, it sold for a good price.

    Thanks all. I thought that and was hoping that maybe Kahr released some MK40s without the engraving.

    I won the auction. I read the title and the details carefully, but didn't realize it wasn't actually an Elite model and his description was incorrect until afterwards. I emailed him to ask him thinking maybe he just used stock photos he found or something, but he admitted he made a mistake and took an extra $35 off, so I got it for $330! Not what I wanted, but for the price, I'm happy.

    You did fine, real fine on that one. The Elite in script looks kind of cool but other than that and a bit of cosmetics it's the same gun.
    With the night sights and all you done good.

    Enjoy.

    You'll still like the mk. I carry an MK9 daily. You still did well! Congrats!

    You got a good deal. You can make your MK40 shinier than an Elite with increasing grits of sandpaper and some polish. The "Elite polish" isn't really all that shiny.
