    My experience with the Nano is been great (no problems with it I have around 500 rounds thru it now) but I will always suggest that if possible you to try both firearms. Things like grip, trigger pull, magazines disconnect and even the size of both fire arms might throw you off to one or the other one.

    In my case for the Nano I'm not planning to use it as a pocket pistol (I don't like carrying pistols in the pocket), the only thing I needed to do was to add a grip and that's it, I like the trigger and the size of it, Im quite accurate with it at 24 ft, etc.
    Another thing, because it's a new gun there are not a lot of holster available, etc. and no magazines extensions yet... But that's normal in a new firearm.

    I didn't lose interest in the Kahr Cm9 because of the father. They do hire Usa workers. I lost interest after the 2 in the range had repeated malfunction and all the talk of break in needed and this and that. I've had to many inexpensive guns that never had problems no "break in". Thats what I just don't get there no moving parts or only the slide?? Now I'm just waiting to see how the nano performs.

    Where did you get the grip.I have a Nano and a slightly bigger grip would be nice.Thanks.

    I own a Nano and love it very much.It shoots well and feels nice.I also like the Kel-Tec PF9.I think it will be my next gun.Just shoot good ammo threw the Nano.It doesn't like junk ammo.I have 250 rounds threw my Nano and so far so good.I do notice a difference when shooting cheap ammo.

    deg. I brought my Sigma .40 with the last of its now tarnishing ammo which sat for 3 years. Got rid of the sigma ammo first. by then my fingers were already
    freezing . First couple of mags. the shots were all over but after awhile we settled down.I have moderate to severe Rheumatoid arthritis in my rt. hand,
    mainly the trigger finger and the middle finger. To me, the trigger felt fine. While i only put 150 rds. down range, i am really liking the Nano. I plan on selling
    the sigma with the crimson Trace installed and will carry the Nano. I bought the High Noon Mr.softy holster and so far its working fine.

    Glad you liked the Nano. I have no issues with mine other than learning not to bother with the low end Federal ammo.

    Glad you like it.It's a great little gun.Pics on the net do it no justice.Have to go and touch one.Very accurate out of the box.I took mine home and cleaned it and oiled it and away I went.Hogue makes a great little grip for it also.You have to trim it a little.I like your holster.I need to get one.

    How did you like your Sigma?I was thinking of a full size 9mm.

    I love my CM9

    There are people that are are unhappy with all brands.

    If you go to Glock forums, you would swear Glocks are all dogs.

    I wouldnt rate the Kahr at the same level as the Glock in quality..... but it IS very close

    Me to with kahr. I bought cw9 off a guy that had nothing but problems with it. I go thru it, learn about it, clean it up debur anything along with the the mags and followers. Oil it and shoot 600 rounds with no problems or cleaning, 115gr fmj too. Bought a cm9 did the same with it. They are tight pistols and I think if you don't control it well it may give some people fits. Even some ammo out there is below standards . You get on these foums and some people think every gun owner is there too and all the problems come up. I would bet that know more than 5% of owners ever visit a forum and then its mainly the very few whinners that complane. Then if a problem is real some are to stupid to spend the pistol back and some of them that do don't don't write out detailed issues for CS to work thru. The rest with a problem pistol are traded off. In 46 years of shooting I only had 1 firearm that did not run right new. It was a KT p-11 and KT fixed it quickly and it was a fine little pistol after that. And I never whinned about it.

    As I aid before IMO with any gun you shouldn't have to debur or check the gun for it to work. I have may $299 guns like Colt Mustang that never needed anything to work right. Yes you need to clean and take care of anything. JMO you shouldn't need to do somethat should have been done before it was sold. With out a warning at least JMO

    Oh was I talking to you!!! I may not need to look for a problem BUT I do with any and all firearms. If you don't thats your choice. But when i learn how to go thru a peice of cr*p argentinian 1911 and learn how to get it to feed Hps with the help of an old smithy and learn what i could do to clean up someones "junk " so many years ago I just LOOK for a bur or trash that allan leave behind. I have done this for 40 yearst and still todays guns. I just do the same thing to all.

    Now pay attention. I MAY NOT NEED TO BEBUR ANYTHING. got that part. BUT I LOOK FOR IT. When I can take a pistol that for what ever reason some dumda** can't make shot . And all I end up doing is cleaning, looking for burs or edges to smooth and oil it up and it runs great, I can then assume the guy is a dumb a** . I like buying your problem firearms from people to stupid to follow up with the manufactor to fix the problem or let a seasoned shooter try there pistol to see if its them and not the gun.

    What got me into kahr was buying a used cw9 that turns out I could find NO issues with and after cleaning and LOOKING for problems it ran 100% for the first 600 rounds cleaned it and still shooting 100%. Just a dumda** X-owner.

    Now I am sorry if you think I was talking about you. In 40+ years I just have never owned a bad firearm that so many others seem to have owned.
