    Good price point for Khar CM40?

    So the wife twisted my arm and had us stop at the LGS after Black Friday shopping. Found out that they just got a CM40 on consignment on sale for $325. I had been looking for a pocket/BUG in .40 to augment my Glock 22. Just a couple of questions.

    Is that a far price?

    And how good is the DAO trigger? (I wasn't going to spend a bunch of time dry firing someone else's gun)

    My experience with DAO guns are my wife SCCY, Colt Trooper, Sig 226 DAK, and my Astra 357(feels a little like the Colt).

    Would I be better off waiting on a good deal of a different gun. Thanks.

    Yep, $379 at my LGS.

    And the Kahr trigger is the smoothest DA trigger I have ever encountered.

    The price isn't bad.....as long as the gun functions properly. I would insist on shooting it before purchasing it. You are purchasing a gun with no warranty, so it makes sense to insure it works.

    Kahr's Limited Warranty is for 5 years to the original purchaser.

    X2. Try to shoot it if you can. My CM9 was not a whole lot more than that new, OTD. The extra money I paid was worth it to me in case I needed the warranty. Having said that mine has been 100% flawless thus far, is surprisingly accurate and a pleasure to carry.

    A friend of mine had a PM40 and it was not as bad as I thought it would be. Certainly more than my CM9 but it was tolerable.

    Its a snappy little pistol and makes for short shooter sessions . Trigger pull as very smooth , no stacking like many DA type triggers have. it will feel like no other DA trigger you have tried. 325 out the door would be a better price as new a good lgs price is around 370 to 380 with a few "real deals" from time to time. I paid new 350 about 4 years ago for my cm9. The trigger is going to be very different from your glock and personaly I don't like to mix triggers and grip angles. But I do carry kahrs. Kahrs come with a trigger pull of about 6lbs and break in a bit lower but many of us change the striker spring to a wolff RP striker spring for what break in as a 5lb trigger pull. That all I can say about kahr.

    I think if you can carry a g27 in a small minimal holster. Nothing new to learn and nothing to screw up with the pistol has all the same functions and the back up mag you carry now works in both. Something like a desantis pocket tuk( not just for pockets) that's adjustable for cant and height can work on the weak side as a front side tuckable cc. I 3 speed holster for down around the junk carry. I have a comp-tac minotaur I wear at a 2:00 with a cw9 or tp40

    Agreed. my CM40 is much less snappy then my P3AT .380 BUG. Even my 87 year old Grandfather said it was not bad at all. I think I paid 375 new for my CM40 about a year and a half ago. I have about another 20 in it with the Pearce extension & Pachmayr grip sleeve and its perfect for my needs now. It gets carried every day of the week and at home.
