    The perfect carry-Kahr

    If anyone has a Kahr CW or P model and has considered converting it to a "Covert" here's my finished product. I loved my CW40 but absolutely despised the magazine hanging out of the bottom an additional 1/2". I tried the PM40 but found the muzzle flip to be a bit much for target reacquisition. I decided to take my CW40 and make a hybrid of the two. The gun now has a PM40 sized grip to it and can use the flush fitting PM40 mags or the standard CW40 mags. I find the gun to be reliable and accurate with Hornady 155gr XTP loads. I had a PM40 before and it really danced around in my hand. The CW covert doesn't have anywhere near the muzzle flip the PM40 had and stays put nicely. Anyway, here's a few pics I took out on the deck. I am liking this as a carry piece.

    I don't quite understand what you did. Did you swap slides or just use different magazines?

    I was lost when I read this, too. My P9 is very concealable, even with the finger extension, unless by "covert" you mean completely tucked.

    Looks like you did a fine job. I'm waiting for someone to do a "covert" modification on a TP45. I've seen "P"s and "K"s, but no "T"s or "TP"s.

    I had a covert 9, I'm sorry I traded it away now.

    Yup, I did the same thing to mine.... Made it even more concealable. Excellent mod to an already fine cc pistol.

    Very cool. I am considering melting the slide a little next.

    Well done and congrats. The Kahr triggers need some "soothing" out of the box, but I find them to be very reliable and and accurate as they need to be. I love your mod's.

    Kahr used to offer that mod as a factory option. I'd like one, but I'm too chicken to cut my own gun down like that. A fine job, BTW.

    Wow, that's a pretty slick little package. I've been surprised there aren't more factory handguns out there so dimensioned, for 3:00-4:30 carry (or even appendix).
