I have a CW9 and a CW45 and both have been great. I carry the CW9 lots and have faith in it. They are tight and require a break-in period, so if you are unwilling to do that, then you should probably look at something else. My CW9 was flawless from the beginning, including the break-in period. The CW45 was purchased used with unknown rounds and it has never malfunctioned in about 300 rounds.
