P380 Black Rose

The Kahr P380 Black Rose is a semi-automatic pocket pistol chambered in .380 ACP. The Black Rose is a special edition of the standard P380. It has “Black Rose: P380 Kahr” engraved on the left side of the slide and a rose engraved on the right.

The Black Rose has identical features to the standard model that includes a locked-breech system where the backwards force is absorbed by the slide rather than the frame. Another feature that helps resist wear are the stainless steel inserts lining the inside of the frame. The black polymer frame has a textured grip and is very lightweight at around 0.63 pounds. The overall width is 0.75″ thick, so it’ll be easier to conceal in a pocket or holster. It has a customized match grade barrel made by Lothar Walther, which fires accurately even up to 25 yards. It has a double-action only trigger that sets off the action with around a five-pound 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 it is dropped. And it comes with adjustable three-dot sights.

Its caliber .380 ACP is smaller than 9mm and has a shorter range and less stopping power, but it is an ideal cartridge for a concealed carry gun because its recoil is manageable with a small frame.
