Thread: First time with a CM9, or any Kahr for that matter

    Smile First time with a CM9, or any Kahr for that matter

    After much research on a concealed carry pocket pistol, I finally decided to purchase the Kahr CM9 (mostly from the great reviews on Kahrtalk.com!) I have a Glock 27 already, but it's still a little bulky for my to carry especially when wearing summer clothing. So I decided to get a 2nd gun as to have a choice on my daily carry.
    After reading the manual, as well as reviews on here, I took my new gun to the range today for the 200 round "break in." I completely expected for the gun to malfunction at least once or twice in this break in just from reading reviews from everyone, but I am happy to report that I had ZERO malfunctions! I used some Wal-Mart special Winchester 9mm target practice ammo that was $24 for a box of 100 rounds. I also only used the factory supplied magazine. Prior to heading to the range, I wiped the gun down and got rid of all the factory preservative gunk and oiled a little bit on the slide rails. I also racked the slide about 100 times to get it a little loosened up.
    At the range, I pumped the 200 rounds through in a little under an hour and couldn't be more pleased. I have always been a fan of Glock because of it's known reliability, but I am now a fan of Kahr for they seem to have hit the same nail on the head.
    I was also very pleased with the accuracy of this weapon. The longer trigger pull seemed to help me center in on the bullseye, and I hit it almost every time.
    As I left the range I purchased some Speer Gold Dot personal protection ammo, and I am more than confident that this gun will perform should the need arise.

    I was pondering over one just today, glad to hear of your favorable experience. I had to have the CW45, but the CM9 is on the list!

    Welcome to the forum bwigginit. Glad to read another great review of the CM9. I think Kahr really has a winner on it's hands with this little jewel. I hope they bring out the CM40 and 45 soon.

    Thanks for the report and I bet you continue to enjoy your new Kahr. I bought a used PM40 first after shooting a borrowed PM9 and am very happy with it, then bought the 9mm CM9 as soon as they came out. Great little pistols.

    Glad to see you had a great first time with the CM9. I have fallen in love with the mine. The only thing I would recommend is pulling off that plastic front sight (it's amazing how flimsy it is mounted) and order a single Trijicon metal front night sight from Kahr's website. Huge upgrade and only $30.

    Thanks for the tip on the sights! Will have to look into that. I just ordered another 6 round mag from cheaper than dirt.com. Just hoping my wife doesn't find all these firearms receipts!

    I guess I sort of took the opposite approach. I shot and bought a PM45 first (does that get me any brownie points with Bawanna?). I loved it, and still carry it by preference whenever clothing allows.

    But I soon decided that I really wanted a PM9 as well. I mean how can you not love a pistol as small as that in a serious/legitimate caliber that you can really carry in a front pocket? Oops, no caliber war intended.

    So to complete my collection of calibers, I'm waiting/hoping for a CM40 to arrive from Kahr. That would be sweet. :hungry:

    I too purchased a CM9 (about 4 months ago) based in large part on the information available and favorable reviews in the KahrTalk forums. Couldnt be happier with the CM9: Super-reliable; performs as advertised. It goes everywhere with me now.
