    I recently took my XDE 3.3 in .45 to the range along with my P227. While the smaller gun didn't bother me it was definitely more of a handful than the 227. I did feel that my P40 was snappy, but I've never shot a .45 as light as the P45.
    I've only got the Covert to compare against, but I'd say that the .40 is quite "snappy". The P45 seems a bit muted/dampened in comparison.
    I can't say if one is more harsh than the other, but, with it's abbreviated grip, I'm slower getting the Covert back on target. To help with that, I use a magazine extension on the Covert. It's the only Kahr pistol I do that with.

    No dealing with that on the 45

    Regards,

    Thanks Greg. I may have missed it previously but that's the only Kahr I've ever seen a flat trigger on.

    Greg, can you give us info on that trigger? Does it move the break point forward? Reason I ask is that I have a P40, and my trigger finger contacts my support hand before the trigger breaks.

    It doesn't move the break point, but it does reposition your finger some. There are more photos on this here: http://www.kahrtalk.com/showthread.p...997#post412997

    I don't see any PM9 coverts anywhere. If anyone knows where I can find a recent production NEW one (with the night sights!) please let me know!

    Nice video on the Covert and comparison in size. I usually carry the CM 9 without a grip extension, but occasionally carry it with a Gallaway extension giving me 8 rds. The extension does add a little length if that is something you desire. It does fit very nicely in my size Lg Hand. And I just weighed it and does not even register on the scales. So the benefit is you have a 9mm Micro 9mm and is just a little bigger than some 380's, have one of the lightest weight guns you can fine in 9mm. And a longer extension Plus 1 more round. And the fact that the Kahr is a very mild shooting gun especially for the small size and low weight.
    That said, would I like to have a Covert. Heck yes.

    I am also interested in finding one as well. The longer barrel would be a nice addition while keeping the same height.
