Kahr CW9

Description

The Kahr CW9 is a semi-automatic small-frame pistol chambered in 9mm. Kahr is one of the premier manufacturers of pistols and has lines for major calibers such as .45, .40, .380 and, of course, 9mm. The CW9 stand alone whereas others have a handful of sub-models. What makes it different is it’s larger than the other models.

Otherwise it has similar features including a locked-breech system where the backwards force is absorbed by the slide rather than the frame. The overall width is 0.90″ making it easier to conceal. It has a double-action only trigger that sets off the action with a longer pull. It doesn’t have a safety, but it’s less likely something other than a trigger finger will pull a double-action trigger all the way back. It also has a passive striker block, which is an internal safety that prevents the gun from accidentally discharging if dropped. And it comes with adjustable three-dot sights.

Kahr recommends the CW9 for concealed carry.
