    Thanks - this one a keeper - that's my problem they are all KEEPERS!!! LOL !!! Just kidding - I keep the rare, one offs, discontinued or customs - I'll post my KAHR gun porn on another thread. This T9 is going to get passed down for generations is my hope. Keep your eye on the KAHR website - every now and then they just blow out all their sights for like 50% off - I ordered about $200 - $300 of sights both old and new style. I may offer sight replacement services for members of the forum here if people want - had a alot of down time at work since this whole pandemic thing started and ordered a Wheeler Sight Pusher and started hobby gunsmith tinkering. I'm a USPSA/IDPA competitor and was already having to tinker with my competition guns. I guess I should ask if anybody has tried the CARBO springs in their KAHR's?

    I too have a Wheeler and do my own sights. I might be interested in a set of the old dovetail style sights for my blunt-nose PM9 if you'd be willing to part with a set.

    Kahr put a dimple on the inside bottom of the slide when they went to the new sight cut. That's the easy way to tell which sights fit which gun.
    Judging by today's left wing, looks like Senator Joe McCarthy was right after all.

    OK, the mystery deepens KAHR customer service told me the production date on this T9 was March 2003, they could not tell me if it left the factory Black Diamond DLC but they did say that it has never been back to KAHR once it shipped out. I own many factory Black Diamond DLC KAHR's - and this one looks like a factory job not aftermarket or done by anyone else. Also this appears to have been never fired, the original magazine has never been loaded. The girl at KAHR said she is going to try and get some more info for me on this and will email me. She did tell me it was coded KT9 and from what I know the original owner was NYPD Captain, Chief, Big Wig , etc.

    It sure looks good. It's a shame you don't have the box. But given the condition I'd be happy with it anyway. Might be an idea to search for other boxes in the same serial number range to see what their labels say. With or without the mystery, you got a bargain there. If you have any contacts in the NYPD, or know someone who does you might ask for help. Big force I know but there's not all that many Captains.
    So, you going to try the old dovetail sights? Or at least push those out and compare em to both types before deciding?

    Thanks - I was not expecting an unfired gun or one that was basically factory new. As expected, the Factory NOVAK's are dead. Even though DLC is suppose to be scratchproof, I've had DLC guns I've had to "fix" with a black sharpie - I'm tempted to push out the factory Novak's and replace them with a new set but I know from experience I won't be able to just "push" them out - it's gonna take a considerable whacking with a hammer and punch set to get those out. I DO NOT want to mess up the finish and maybe have the matte stainless showing in the dovetails. I know I'll never need the night sights, this won't be my carry gun - I have a P45 Black Diamond DLC for that. I saw a pic of a K9 Black Diamond DLC with the same wood grips - that's gonna be my next search - LOL!!! Anybody with a Black Diamond DLC K9 looking for a sweet sweet Matte Stainless Steel K9 for trade ????
