    New PM9 Good Deal?

    Today I picked up a used Kahr PM9 (9093NS) (Stainless w/Night Sites).
    Guy in the store said a Lawyer comes in there all the time. Buys guns, then is back in within a week trading them in on something else. He bought a P9 and this PM9, like the P9 and kept it and traded the PM9 back in. I "seriously" doubt that he fired more than 50 rounds through it. In fact I'd bet he fired 25 rounds or less through it. It only one magazine (the 6 round magazine "flush with bottom of gun"). So I asked the guy about which other one comes with it, because I don't particularly care for the 7 round mag with the plastic cover. IMO that magazine looks about stupid as it can. Kahr could have designed it better. He said whichever one I wanted, so I got a 2nd short mag (6 round).

    Cost? oh.. $549 before tax and background check. Like new, with box, manual, 2 short mags, probably no more than 25 rounds through. How'd I do?

    I went to Walmart and picked up 200 rounds of RWS 124gr FMJ and went to my shootin' spot.

    Not a single FTF or FTE. Flawless. Didn't even nose dive a round into the feed ramp when trying to chamber first round like my CW9 sometimes does. Everything chambered perfect and fired perfect.

    I put all 200 rounds through it, plus 50 rounds of Walmart white box Winchester 115gr that I had. That's 250 rounds flawless.

    Oh yeah baby.

    Oh yeah, some people wear gloves, I just real quick before I left to head to the range, cut a bicycle inner tube and slipped on it. Took me 2 minutes.

    Schweeeeeet!

    Now I have to go clean it up for it's glamour shots!

    I'd say you saved around $75-$100 over buying a new one. Not a bad deal at all if it's only been fired as little as you think it has.

    I had a great time playing with the new gun you bought today. It was really a good deal. I am glad you finally found a PM9.

    Yep, good deal.
    I prefer night sights but a bargain is a bargain.

    Great deal. I paid 600 even for mine without night sites...so your about 125-150 positive!

    I have been looking for a PM9 locally for a while now without success, so I bought one off Gunbroker for $565 shipped. It was supposedly used but like new in box with night sights. I picked it up today and couldn't be happier. I fired a couple of boxes of Winchester white box through it with no problems.

    Yesterday, I found one on another board within driving distance of me, and I am seriously considering buying it too. It is $550 without night sights.

    Yeah I thought so too. I would actually be happy with the one with regular sites, but I figured for the same price, it is a wise investment to get the one with night sites as it would have better value in the end.

    Good move---I have two of the slightly larger CW-9 pistols (one for me, one for wife) and both now run 100% and shoot right to point of aim---happy camper.
