    Put 250 rds through it last week. No issues when firing. Sometimes a bitch to chamber first round though due to mag.

    Factory night sites. Overall very happy with it.

    i've been having a lot of FTF issues with my kahr cw45

    im hoping that it'll get better after the break in period, i put in about 75 rounds and every other round was not feeding right. :rant2:

    i would have to rack the slide a bit for it to fall into place

    were you shooting reloads? I used American eagle and some monarch that was on sale. I just had to bump the mag to get the slide to close when chambering number one. After that it was fine.
    That shit happens when I have to buy the shitty reloads at the range

    I had a lot of problems with my Kahr P40. It was an awesome caliber and gun (and size) but I would have a jam every 5-6 rounds. It was rare to make it through an entire mag without a jam. IIRC it was usually a FTF. I polished the barrel a little and that helped and I noticed that when I was holding it VERY tight then it did better... if you limp wristed it even a tiny bit it'd jam every other round. Ended up trading it off because I got sick of it.

    I have a Kahr CW9. I've been thinking about selling it. I've only got like under 200rds through it and hardly ever shoot it.

    my first pm9 was a lemon, even after polishing the barrel and break in period it wouldn't go into battery. The frame eventually separated from one of the metal inserts and Kahr replaced the whole gun. Second one runs great after polishing the barrel.

    nope, american eagle. its frustrating.

    great size, but i'd be better off pistol whipping someone than shooting if it came down to it

    i'll go through this break in period, although rediculous.

    if not kahr will be getting it in the mail

    I wonder why Kahr is embraced as a "premium" brand and yet I constantly read about all the problems they have. My dad got my mom a new Kahr and they got rid of it pretty quickly.

    I have a "shitty" Taurus PT-145 and the thing has been rock solid for the 1500+ rounds I've run through it, is easy to operate, and cost less than half of what a Kahr does.

    This isn't to make a debate, it just baffles me how people choose what's "good" versus what's "bad".

    The only reason I even considered a Kahr was because at the time there wasn't any Kel-Tecs so an automatic that small was going to cost $500++ and there wasn't a lot of selection. I don't think I'd buy another one unless I just found a great deal on a PM9 or something. But I'm in the market for another CCW gun and more than likely I'll be buying a Kel-tec PF9.

    love my CW9, it goes everywhere with me. are you dropping the slide catch or racking it by hand? you have to drop the slide catch and let the spring do the work. if you try and rack it by hand it will jam most of the time.

    Got a CW40 for my 21st birthday and was planning on making it my carry gun.

    Well, not so much anymore. After less than 200 rounds, the chrome or whatever finish on the barrel started flaking away :ugh: And right off the bat the gun would have problems with the slide locking or not locking back whenever it felt like it. It did have numerous FTEs and I did have to bump the slide pretty often with around the first 200 rounds but it did seem to clear up afterwards.

    Not to mention the terrible customer service. It's just been a terrible, terrible experience with that gun and company.

    My brother picked up the PF9. Its nice, no issues. Trigger pull is heavier than the PM, also it seems to kick a little more. I think its because the slide is higher. Overall you can't beat it for $335

    A good friend of mine that took the CCW class with me has a PF9. I love the size and the weight but it's not a real joy to shoot (only shot it a couple of times). If it wasn't so small and lightweight I'd probably never carry it. But anymore with the kind of clothes I wear and with my build I can't comfortably conceal a big gun so if I didn't have a gun as small as the PF9 I wouldn't carry at all in most cases. But even though it wasn't really enjoyable to shoot I'm still excited about getting one and putting quite a few rounds through before I carried it. And for $335 or so (I haven't really checked prices much, I know he paid about $325-350 OT) I can't really lose... if it was $800 I'd probably be doing more research.
