    i have the CW9 and really like it.

    they say to shoot at least 200 rounds to make sure everything is broken in (sometimes it malfs within 200), but i havent had any problems.

    i actually brought it out today and put another 100 through it :coold:

    my range buddy bought a CW9 a while back. It's nice and slim. It took 300+ rounds to get the thing to stop stove piping and chamber properly when he got it new. If you have big hands, it'll feel like shit.

    Eventually he sold it and got a G19.

    I personally wouldnt even take one even if what given to me.

    G26 ftw

    IMHO it would make a good carry gun. its slimmer, shorter and lighter than a G26, but for those pros you sacrifice magazine capacity.

    cw9 uses some MIM parts to make it cheaper. also the front sight is perm. fixed.

    I'd prefer a gun that I know is going to fire every time so I'd say Glock.

    I really like the glock 26. Although it is bigger, heavier than say a pm9 it conceals easily. It can take glock 17 mags so you can load it with a 10 round mag for carry and have a spare G17 mag for 17 round of back up. In fact I like to put a +5 dasepad on it for 22 rounds and at 140mm it fits in the pocket easily.

    The glock 26 trigger can be improved with kits or drop in parts to make the trigger a little lighter, more positive so it does not feel like there is rubberbands in there, and to shorten the trigger reset so you can fire the gun mechanically faster. Lots of aftermarket sights avaliable. It is just a great platform.

    I like having several 9mm glock models because it makes it easier to standardize on mags and spare parts. so if you already got a glock 17 or 34 for a full size gun a glock 19 or 26 makes a lot of sense for a carry gun.

    And the barrel is a standard twist instead of poly.

    And it shares the upgraded trigger assembly from the Kahr T9.

    I'd go G26 or G19. I have a coworker who bought the CW9 and it jams/misfires on him all the time with various types of ammo, and he has run a good 500+ rounds through it.

    weird. i think i've put slightly over 300 rounds through mine with zero issues.

    limp wristing? shitty mags? shitty ammo? :dunno:

    Several types of ammo with all the same problem. From Wolf to Gold dots. I think it has a weak striker spring.
