Thread: Kahr Owners Group

  1. Hello,
    I'm new to this group. I ordered a CW9 and it came in today. I can not find documentation on what type of ammo is acceptable for self defense carry. Is there any place that tells me if I can use +P or +P+ rounds in the CW9?

    Welcome Compact 9mm! To answer your question yes you can fire +P or +P+ in your CW9. Here is a good read on your firearm. KAHR ARMS CW9 9mm One thing I picked up on their review was...'Kahr Arms emphatically states that the recoil spring must be replaced after 3,000 rounds. I suggest more frequent change if +P or +P+9mm ammunition is fired.'

    The CW9 is rated for +p+ and shoots it quite well. I haven't been able to find this in writing from Kahr, but I've found several reviews that say it is. Some of these reviews were in the gun magazines and some were on the web.

    I highly recommend Corbon 9mm Luger +P 115gr DPX for defensive purposes. This ammo is known to achieve excellent expansion at the reduced velocities typical of short barreled pistols.

  5. Thanks for the feedback.

    Thanks for the information and the feedback. I also have a Kel-Tec PF9 that is in the shop for service. I will get to the range this week and try our the Kahr with some Winchester White Box and a few Power Balls.

    +1 on bicycle tube for grip

    Did the same to my MK9. Works perfectly.

    If you want more bang....why didn't you buy a 40 or 45 caliber gun? Duh!!!

    Hi all, new to the group. I've owned two Kahr's. The first was a K9 Elite...I really could not believe how smoothly it shot. I could shoot it one handed almost as good as I could with two hand grip. I finally talked myself in to selling it...because I had a terrible lust for a Nighthawk. But, I still have my MK9...I carry it quite often if I'm only wearing a shirt for concealment. I bought it because it's all steel. I wanted that so that I could shoot all the hot stuff I wanted and it would help hold down the recoil. It's a very accurate gun even though it's only got that little barrel, I can shoot it too both one handed and two handed as the trigger is that smooth. I never feel under-gunned when wearing it. And as I have a fair to middling dunlop, it's easily carried with IWB or OWB or pocket carry, with no issues. I did however add Pearce Grips to the Mag's so that I'd have a tad bit more grip with which to deal. Additionally, no matter what I've shot in it, it goes bang each and every time.

    Welcome to the forum, gonkrzy!

    We have the same taste in handguns [smile]

    So far, though, I only have the MK9 with Pearce grips, which I absolutely LOVE. Shoots GREAT, grip size and angle is more comfortable than any other handgun that I own, and conceals easily. It is my everyday companion.

    The K9 Elite is on my wish list as well as a 1911 style handgun (a Ladyhawk would be the bomb!). Glad to hear that your experience with the K9 Elite was extremely good ...

  10. howdy from Peachtree City, south of ATL. 3 Kahrs here, the CW9, PM9 and CW45. All shoot sweet, all are dependable, all have had ZERO issues. All carry much easier than the wider and heavier Springfield xd9sc or xd45c that I had.

  11. Grip extension for 8-round magazine

    I just recently bought a CW9 and a pair of 8-round magazines to go with it. Unfortunately, though, I didn't get the magazines with the grip extenders. Does anyone know if it's possible to purchase just the grip extension? I can't seem to find 'em online.
