Kahr MK9

The Kahr MK9 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. Kahr also has several lines of small-framed pistols chambered in 9mm.

The two Kahr guns most comparable to the MK9 are the P9 and PM9. But what makes it different is its stainless steel slide and frame and wraparound nylon grip. Also, it is the heaviest weighing 1.39 pounds (about a half pound more). Kahr recommends the MK9 for concealed carry.

The MK9 uses a locked-breech system where the backwards force is absorbed by the slide rather than the frame. The overall width is 0.90″ for easy concealment. It features a double-action only trigger and 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.

It comes with adjustable three-dot sights (for night sights add about $100) and two magazines: a 6 round and a 7 round extended magazine.
