    New CW9 pics & range report

    I went to the gun show yesterday wanting to get the Kahr PM9 in my hand to see how it fit. Unfortunately it did not. But, there's always that ray of sunshine, the CW9 felt great in my hand and the price couldn't be beat! Paid $369 + tax for my new companion and after taking it to the range I feel like I stole it.

    Took it to the range a few hours ago to feed it the factory recommended 200 break-in rounds. Used Remington UMC 115gr. FMJ and it didn't have a single problem chewing threw all the rounds. Not a single malfunction. I was expecting to have several and was actually looking forward to running some malfunction drills, but that was not to be. I've been shooting pistols less than a year and I wouldn't call myself a crack shot, but almost every single hole was in the center ring area of my IDPA target at ~6-7 yards.

    Final score: 9/10 Had to take a point off because I can't put night sights on it due to no front dovetail cut. I'm a bit disappointed about that because I want to have night sights on a carry gun but other than that it's a great pistol! I highly recommend it to anyone who wants a quality compact for under $500.





    I also finally got around to joining the NRA while at the gun show. Been meaning to do that for quite awhile but never got around to it. Sorry for the blurry pics, my camera is pretty old.

    I got a first chance to look at one this weekend and the only thing I didn't like is the back sights. I would replace that, but other than that I think I'm gonna pick up one myself!

    I think I saw that cheaper than dirt had the k9 mags for $28. Those are the 9mm ones though, didn't see what the .40 ones were.

    How is the front sight attached?

    Glock night sights use a screw through the underside of the slide. If it works for them, will probably work for your gun. Have you actually checked suppliers to see?

    Other Kahr sights are fitted into a tight dovetail. One of the cost saving measures, on the CW line, is a front sight pegged to the slide. The rear sights are dovetailed on the CW, and can be replaced, but the front sight would have to be milled for a dovetail or drilled for a trutium tube.

    I have a CW9 and love it. You can have a dovetail cut into the slide if night sights are that important to you. Any competent gunsmith should be able to do it for you. The factory sight is pinned in place.

    Did you have this done? How much did it cost? It's not critical for the night sights, but I do want them as long as it won't cost me an arm and a leg.

    I have a CW40. In looking at how the front site is attached (Two plastic pins coming through the slide then melted to hold it) I would think it would be easy for a company to make a replacement front site. One could either do the same thing that Kahr did and melt the plastic pins in place or like the other poster said, using screws. Any one else have any ideas?

    Be careful on the prices at Cheaper Then dirt. I just received a catolog from them that listed Glock Mags @$19.97. I call to order 4 mags and was told they had a price increase to $23.00.

    The excuse was that the Catologs were printed several months before they were sent out and the Mag price had went up,

    They would not honor the catolog price, even though it was the latest catolog they had just mailed.
