Kahr Arms introduced the CW9 pistol with a new black carbon fiber finish for the grip.

“The textured weave provides a real 3D dimensional appearance to the 9mm and the textured grip feels more stable in your hand,” the company said in the announcement.

The CW9 features a 3.6-inch barrel and a matte stainless steel slide. The pistol measures 5.9 inches in overall length, a 4.5 inches in height, and weighs 15.8 ounces.

The Kahr handgun is equipped with a double-action only trigger, three-dot sights, and holds a seven-round magazine. The Kahr CW9 black carbon fiber 9mm pistol retails for $495.
