    @187911,

    I'm confused. You mention threaded barrel, but your photo shows a ported/compensated barrel. Did you intend to attach a different photo?

    Default T9 barrel in a K9?

    @FreeMe,

    I've just jumped all over this, finally! I just placed a RA order with Kahr Inc. after speaking with Kahr CSR "Mark" about this.

    I just received an e-mail from Kahr: "Your request for return authorization is submitted successfully."

    Stay tuned ...

    Moreover, is having a ported CC self-defense pistol even a good idea?

    However, wouldn't it be neat if Kahr offered a non-ported but threaded-for-silencer option for this barrel!!??

    I meant to say ported not threaded.

    I’ve been using one on mine for years. The K9 doesn’t need a ported barrel but I like it.

    I have had the ported barrels on my P9 and P40 for years. I got the P40 one to help with recoil "flip" and like the extra length, too, so I got one for my P9.

    If they made one for my P45, I would buy one. I like the extra length.

    Make sure the barrel you are ordering is for your particular pistol. I don't remember, but I think that there were different versions for the P9/CW9 and the K9.

    The port forward of the sights is less messy with powder residue on the front sight than the Mag-Na-Ported ones and throws the flash forward and up. The flash is more like an unported barrel, not bright like the Mag-Na-Ported ones, though I didn't find the latter bothersome, but I never fired it at night, just in a dark range.

    Picture 1 of my Kahrs and picture 2 of the P9 with the 4" ported barrel firing the Federal Micro HST 150-grain ammo. I took several stills from video and this is representative of those shots. Picture 3 is the same ammo in my wife's Glock G43 with standard barrel. The Micro HST is standard pressure with good penetration and expansion... what I wanted for my wife. I like it, too.

    The powder used is very low flash. Some of the FMJ is VERY BRIGHT, but nothing as bright as the Mag-na-ported P40.

    Dang! That was over 6 years ago and I didn't do any exercising or anything with my arms.

    About 3 years ago I started exercising and using my treadmill for walking at 4 MPH for maybe an hour or so after exercise and added to my execising dumbbells and last year early, I got a punching/kick bag and started using that.

    I quit everything the start of last December and need to get going again. My shoulders... both torn rotator cuffs... and my knees rheumatoid arthritis, I guess... started really bothering me. Deep squats with dumbbells got my knees hurting and I'm not sure if it was some of the supplements that I had started taking for COVID prevention... NAC and Quercetin. Those might have got gotten my immune system into overdrive and attacked my knees.

    Anyhow, I stopped everything and quit the NAC and after my vaccinations quit the extra quercetin, too. It's going to be hard, but I need to get back into my exercise regimen after 4 months off. I was punching and kicking the Everlast bag and learned that kicks don't connect if you're too far away! Your opponent won't be intimidated by your foot pausing at full extension just 6 inches or so short of striking his face or chest. It's nice to have a target for resistance, too. I hurt myself several times with unrestrained kicks at nothing.

    I even got a 15-lb purse/kettle weight to practice bowling approaches because the last time I tried bowling... about 3 1/2 years ago, in the second game something popped and I had to quit... pulled hamstring, I guess... game over. That was after about a 10 year absence from any bowling, because of my injured shoulders... ski falls back in 1983/84 while in Europe.

    I'll be 75 in June and I'm trying to stay fit so I can do just about anything, but be able to run more than a minute or two. This all started when I went to hop up a retaining wall about 5 feet high to get into the uphill neighbors yard for something. I almost did a hard faceplant... no upper body strength! I tried twice with the same results, so I knew that I needed to start exercising! I WAS up to 25 pushups and will be lucky to do 15 now. I tried after a few months and could do 17, 18, 19 in three days, but that was tough. I usually give out around 22 or so, but was managing 25 before stopping.

    Even with all of my aches and pains, I can kick over my head and block and punch a bit. I can claim to have studied karate on Okinawa back in 1967/68, but I only went to a few classes before giving that up because of our LONG 18+ hour flights and TDYs to 'Nam. I wish that I could have followed up with that. I'm a wee bit old now, but I would like to have options besides shooting someone.
