    CM9 to break in!

    Husband gave me this for our Anniversary. Yes- have thought seriously about one myself, almost traded the P380 2 weeks ago; he suggested I keep it. Lets do it later. So I am seriously looking forward to breaking this in once I clean it. The more I read of the CM9 the more I think I will like it. After seeing my excitement; he realizes that I have to have another holster and probably another belt - well yes! And of course I have to have a pic so give me time to load it.

    Congrats! I love my CM9.

    Be sure to go HERE and HERE for proper prep and lube of the new Kahr.

    Enjoy!

    You have a very generous and caring husband.

    the CM9 is a great little pistol. I broke mine in without a shot fired. Just lubed and racked the slide about a 1000 times and and was good to go. Everything smooths out after that many slide cycles. Good excercise as well as the recoil springs in the CM9 are very, very tight. Felt recoil in the CM9 seems about 50% of the Keltec PF-9....maybe just me, but definitely is a softer shooter....and accurate.

    Congrats on the new CM9! I'm jealous. I bought a CW9 a few months ago and since then, I'd really like to add a CM9 to the line up as well.

    Be sure to let us know how it runs for you after you get it to the range.

    The CM9 is great. I've tipped 268 rounds on mine. No issues at all. I also agree with the above poster - follow the "break in" procedure. It'll help smoothen the gun out ahead of time.

    Also, I recommend leaving the slide locked back overnight if possible. Helps loosen the initial tightness of the spring. The first few times breaking it down might seem a little difficult due to the tightness of everything. It'll ease up with time. These pistols are fitted fairly tight from the factory.

    Thumbs up

    Very cool. My PF9 hasn't seen much action since I got a PM9. That is a well-made little pistol.

    Congratulations and Happy Anniversary!! I have become a big fan of Kahr guns. They are small, well built and shoot great. They are easily concealable as well. I have a P380 and then got a PM 9. Love them both. I would not let go of the P380 as it is a great trade for CCW. I like it on days the PM9 is too large or not as easily concealed. Hard to believe there would be a difference but there is. Mostly because it is summer and clothes are so light.
    Enjoy them both and happy shooting! I threw in a picture of my two Kahrs to share.

    My CW9 has been the most trouble free of the polymer pistols I have had. I tried every thing I could to make it malf. nope. kept a ticking. If I try hard enough by doing exaggerated limp wrist techniques, I can occasionally get my XD's and glocks to choke. My kimber ultra has been the same as the Kahr. I am impressed with the kahr based on on the sample I have.

    My CW9 has been flawless for 425 rds now. Its very accurate and a real gem to shoot. I never leave home without it. Conceals nicely in a Remora holster.
    I carry a .357mag because no one bickers about the .357mag being "enough".
