    Kahr mk 40

    hello everybody, I am new to this forum and pretty new to ccw. I have been carrying for about 6 months. I carry a Glock 27 and am very happy with it but have recently been looking at Kahr MK 40 .
    They are so thin and small I know they would be a lot more comfortable for me to carry IWB which is how I carry almost all the time. What does everyone think about them? Any information will be appreciated.

    I have an MK9 and I'm extremely happy with it. Kahr makes very nice handguns for CCW. They are among the most concealable large caliber handguns around. Having said all that, however, an MK40 would seem to be quite a handful in terms of recoil & muzzle flip, if my Springfield XD40 is any indication. But you should try one out and see for yourself...

    Has it been 100 percent reliable? that is very important to me. How many rounds have you run through it? Did you have the normal break in problems during the first 200 rounds that I have been reading about?

    My only reliability issues so far have been a handful (3 or 4) of FTEs, all with FMJ ammo, and all within the break-in period. I've had no issues of any kind since. I've put about 500 rounds through my MK9 to this point.

    Mine has always been 100% reliable. I quit using it when I broke my strong hand, the recoil was too much and the capacity was too low for weak-hand-only. When my hands were healthy it was a favorite in my carry rotation with 135gr Cor Bon.
