Kahr CM9
The Kahr CM9 is a pocket pistol chambered in 9mm.
The CM series is an economical version of Kahr’s PM line, which Kahr designed and recommends for concealed carry.
Kahr is able to reduce the price by equipping CM pistols with a conventional rifled barrel instead of the match grade polygonal barrel and many components were constructed by metal injection molding (MIM), a process that involves powdered metal to be pushed into a mold and then it’s heated so the ground metal fuses together. This process is cheaper than machining parts.
Also, there are less engravings on the gun. Lastly, Kahr is able to reduce price by shipping pistols with one magazine instead of two.
CM pistols feature a stainless steel slide, which was milled from a solid block, and a black polymer frame. It has a double-action only trigger, adjustable sights, a short three-inch barrel, and uses a five-round magazine.
