Upgrades for PM9 Trigger
Having trouble sufficiently concealing my G27 which I would prefer to carry so I am trying to switch to my PM9 which, being smaller, is easier to conceal. Although the trigger is all right it is longer with a longer reset than the G27. Does anyone know of any upgrades available to lighten and shorthen the PM9 trigger? I have found my best carry location, all things being considered in 12 -2 basically appendix IWB. Anyone use Smartcarry? What about Belly Bands? Thanks.[/SIZE]

I've always considered the elite trigger on my Kahrs to be absolutely awesome right outa the box... I'd be interested to see what anyone comes up with though..

Some people install the 5# striker spring.

I use a Smartcarry frequently. I would suggest you get one, and carry your G27. The PM9 would make a nice BUG.
Another option - I had some of my pants pockets deepened and squared off by a tailor. As I sit here, I have a G26 in my right pocket, and a PM9 in my left. Both are in Desantis Superfly holsters, which do a pretty good job of breaking up the outline of the pistols, due to the anti-print panel.
Leave the trigger on your PM9 alone. It's a good pistol, but it will never be a Glock.
The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.

Like some of the above members have said, I'd leave the PM9 alone.
The heavy DAO action is the safety on this pistol, and FWIW, many, myself included, consider its trigger to be among the best of the breed, with a very smooth pull and a clean break.
Spend more time with the PM9, if you want to look at it as your "alternate carry." The trigger will take time to master, but once you get it down, it's a very, very impressive defensive autopistol, for its size.
I've seen some *very* good shooting out of PM9 owners who use this pistol as their primary carry.

I've owned a PM9 over 5 years. It's my back up to my G19. I would suggest not messing with the trigger. Carrying a gun with a modified trigger can create problems, legally, if you use your gun in self defense. Especially if you lighten the trigger. I clicked the link to the reduced power striker spring, it says "for competition only, not for duty use." Perhaps there's a reason for that. I wouldn't suggest it for CCW either. I've hit an 8" steel plate at 50 yards with my PM9 several times during a training class. I can consistently hit that same steel plate at 25 yards. The PM9 is a good gun, usually better than the shooter. Run your PM9 in a training class or several IDPA matches. You'll get better with it and won't even want to alter the trigger. Also, my trigger on my PM9 became lighter on it's own after about 500-600 rounds.

Yeah. The best upgrade for the trigger is to shoot it more. I guarantee you will get used to it and end up liking it more than your other guns.

Perhaps a call to Kahr would be useful to ask if the new enhanced trigger will be available for retrofitting into older PM9s. I'm not sure the enhanced trigger is actually available yet though. A lighter striker spring reduces the pull weight a slight amount but doesn't affect the length of pull. A standard Kahr has a 6-7 lb. pull as it is. Not many people would consider that excessive for a carry gun, and in particular, not too much for a pocket gun.

I prefer the Kahr PM9 trigger over the others, it is smooth and once you shoot it for awhile it will be your favorite. Mine smoothed out a lot after 500-600 rounds.
