    Kahr CM9 Trigger

    I purchased a Kahr CM9 some time ago & have put about 150 rounds through it with no problems. My only complaint about this pistol is the trigger. It seems like you have to pull the trigger all the way back before it will fire. For some reason I can't get use to it. Not sure if it is my big hands or what. How do you guys deal with it that own one?

    long trigger pull? compared to what? an LCP, a PF9? I think the Kahr trigger is pretty sweet for a dao gun. I suppose if you're comparing it to a glock 26 or a xdsc..

    Yeah, that's how they are - long and smooth trigger pull almost all the way back, and all the way back forward for the reset.

    It's the way the trigger is on this gun. Since there is no safety, there is a long trigger pull. If you don't think you will be able to get used to it you will not like it. It is a long pull but very smooth. I have a CM9 as well. It's a heck of a nice gun.

    Had this same problem with my CM9, I wanted to love the gun but couldn't. Ultimately, I sold it.

    Never underestimate a well healed trigger.

    Can't believe how many people buy with out even pulling the trigger or reading reviews!! It has known to have a long double action trigger pull much like to any DA revolver made, except lighter and smoother. If you spend time at the range and run 400 rounds down rangewith out shooting other pistols you will become use to it and learn when it will fire. . Any trigger can be learned. Except by some ny city leos. HA That type of trigger tends to keep you from shooting someone needlessly when under stress. Except by nyc leos of course. "joke" kinda.

    I have a CM9 with 400 rounds thru and find that the trigger is very smooth. Very accurate also. Love the little gun. IMHO.

    I have a CM9 which for me, is the only 9mm that works as a pocket carry.

    I use it when a larger gun cannot be carried. My crossbreed holster is awesome, but i cant seem to
    Make it work well with a tucked in shirt......

    I am also not a huge fan of the kahr trigger.

    Very smooth design.

    Forget doubletaps...... The reset is too long.

    Think of it like a fantastic trigger on a revolver.

    If someone comes out with a very slim short handled pistol (4 inch height and less than an
    inch thick) With a nice reset I will probably switch.

    If the Shield had one less bullet in the stack, i would have already switched.

    My view........for now.....

    The kahr is the best and only solution for pocket carry in a minimum caliber (for me)

    I also try to limit to USA made as well..... We need the jobs..... No need to put another countries worker in a job when an american goes without
    An imperfect servant of my Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ

    Buying American made, keeping Americans working
    ....Whenever I still can

    What non-shooter are YOU planning on taking to the range?

    I completely agree with what dean1818 said, I've had the same opinion on my Kahr.

    It will serve me well until something better comes along as I feel it is the best pocket 9mm out right now for the price.

    Check out the Beretta Nano if you don't like the Kahr trigger. The Nano has a Glock-like trigger with a shorter pull and reset. Made in the USA, as well.
    Slow is smooth.....smooth is fast.

    I have a PM9. I got a S&W shield this week, and I am in the process of selling the Kahr. I like the Shield so much better.

    It's hard to do doubletaps with the kahr and keep the 2nd round on paper - with that long, long trigger pull.
