This is a discussion on Comparison Pics - M&P 45 Compact vs. Kahr CW45 within the Defensive Carry Guns forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; There are plenty of reviews on these two pistol on the net, but I don't think I've ever seen any comparison pics between the two. ...
I'm surprised at how similar. Nice photos. So the Kahr is a bit shorter and a bit thinner, but has pretty much the same length of grip to get hold of. Not a lot of size savings, really, but enough to make a difference for many folks.
I have a K40 on the way, and everytime I see another photo such as this one, it makes be more anxious. My, they ARE nicely put together, aren't they?
I carry the MP45c, so I'm already a major 45c bigot...absolutely love it. But, I'd have to say anyone in the market for a small 45 would just have to take a look at the CW45. Very nice indeed, and the fit-and-finish looks to be 2nd to none and step above the Smith.

Great pics, thanks for posting. I was just saying in another thread that I do not find my CW45 much more concealable than my XD 45c (which is about the same size as the MP45c). As such, the Kahr often just sits in the safe because it doesn't hold as many rounds.
I don't see myself getting rid of either one. Love 'em both!
Slow is smooth.....smooth is fast.
I love my M&P 45 compact, but I go to a Kahr CM9 when wardrobe dictates the smaller weapon.
For some reason, I am able to transition well between the two different triggers.
I got rid of my DA/SA guns, because it threw me off when shooting my old Kahr K9.
I may look at a CW45, or CM45 (when they come out) at some point
