    M&P 9c vs Glock 26 or wait on Kahr CM9

    I already have a 26 and I am quite pleased. I have been looking at an M&P9c to add to my carry rotation. I know its a little smaller than the 26. I just wonder about the trigger. I am not the biggest fan of the Glock trigger. I have read but dont hear much about the M&P trigger and what I do isnt really favorable. What type of trigger is it. How does it compare to the Glock trigger is it the same type. I ask all this to finish with if Im looking for a nother small 9 should I just hold out for the CM9 which I assume will have a smooth DAO trigger?

    I'd say hold out for the CM9. Great triggers on the Kahr line-up. Smaller than both the Glock 26 and M&P9c. Since you already have the G26, the M&P would just be something very similar. The Kahr would on the other hand give you something smaller, lighter, and thinner for carry when you want to go light.

    I agree with tkruf if you have a G26 stick with it. The trigger on the M&P not much different than the Glock. Unless you are starting a collection. I did some refining on my M&P trigger and Apex makes a kit which gives great results. Some time or money there. The Kahr is supposed to be released the 20th, however I did see one locally yesterday. Sorry I didn't check price or trigger pull (short on time) Hope to get back there today.

    I picked up an M&P9c for my wife last month. We shot both the G26 and the M&P as rentals. We both preferred the feel of the M&P, and shot it far and away better. I've got my eye out for a 40c now, since i like the 9c so much.

    As far as the trigger goes, i think they are very similar in weight and crispness. From a purely objective point of view i like the way the M&P feels on my finger, the "safety" on the Glock is very distracting to me. I hear the Apex kits make the M&P trigger a real winner, but I've never seen one first hand.

    M&Pc is not smaller than the 26, in fact, its almost the same size as the G19.

    Since you already have the Glock 26, the M&P9c will be very similar to what you already have. Therefore, I would wait for the Kahr CM9 or look at other options like the Ruger LC9, Kimber Solo, Sig Sauer P290, Walther PPS or Kel-Tec PF9.

    Of the two I picked the Glock 26. The M&P 9c and the 26 filled the same role for me. The CM9 is really in a different class as far size goes so it really is not a fair comparison to the others. Since you have the 26 wait for the Kahr

    I've got the G26 and the PM9; nice siblings for the reasons noted above. One thing I like about the Glock trigger is the shorter re-set as compared to the Kahr; the Kahr trigger, however, is less "mushy".

    I have a G26, the M&P9c and the Kahr PM9. I find the M&P more comfortable to hold with slightly less recoil than the Glock, both have been 100 % reliable. The accuracy is very good on both, as for the trigger, to me they are about the same, maybe the Glock is a bit crisper, since I am no expert thats the best way I can describe it. The M&P seems to be slightly larger than the G26 and a bit heavier, I think it also carries 2 more rounds than the Glock. The PM9 I have has also been 100 % reliable, it is smaller and lighter than the other 2 guns which contributes to a bit more recoil, I dont find it objectionable or abusive but there is a difference. The Kahr only carries 6+1 or 7+1 with the extended mag, to me its worth the trade off for concealibility and the weight difference. The Kahr has a DAO trigger so the pull is longer but smooth and nicely weighted, accuracy is very good for such a small gun. My opinion, you already have a G26 and the M&P9c is very similiar, go with the CM9, its supposed to be the same gun as the PM9 but about $200 cheaper. It only comes with one mag, has standard rifleing instead of the Polygonal rifleing of the PM9 and they use a cheaper process for the engraving.

    I have been happy with my M&P 9c. I looked at the Glock 26 but it was too big for my hand. The 9c with the small grip extension fit better. I don't mind the trigger on the 9c, but am thinking of getting the apex kit.

    If you have a Glock 26 their is no reason to get the M&P9c unless you need the extra 2 rounds. Vise versa for the Glock 26 if you have a M&P9c. They are very similar. The M&P9c has a much shorter grip than the Glock 19 so it coneals better.

    Tip - if you take the NRA Range Safety Officer class, or have another instructor rating, you can get a PM9 direct from Kahr (has to ship to a local FFL) for $410 plus $30 shipping. Night sights are only $65 more. It's their Instructor Program - only caveat is that the gun is to be used for "instructional purposes."
    The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.

    camsdaddy I posted earlier I thought I saw a cm9 in a store. I was mistaken. However according to the kahr web site they will be out the 28th of March. Sorry if I mislead you.

    I saw the thread topic and was about to post this very same comment.

    I'd suggest the Kahr CM9. I don't have and never shot the M&P, but I do have a G26 and two Kahrs. The triggers on the Kahrs are the best I have ever used on any DAO auto loader. I have the CW9 and a PM40, both are awesome shooters and I carry the .40 daily along with my LCR. I don't mind the Glock trigger, but IMO, the Kahr trigger exceeds the Glock trigger by a good measure. Combine the CC benefits for the smaller frame and overall size of the Kahr is a huge plus as well.

    Good luck with your choice, all are fine options which ever one you decide on.
