    Size comparison of my CC pistols

    OK, Since I just got my Kimber (thanks to the wife!), I thought I would do a bit of a comparison of my two CC options.

    First Kahr minimal specs:
    Full specs here: KAHR PM4543 / Specifications (highlighted in red far right)

    The capcity of the PM 45 is 5+1, IMHO isn't to bad

    Weight unloaded with mag is about 20oz's, Loaded it get's about 25oz.

    Now the Kimber Ultra Crimson Carry II minimal specs:
    Full specs here: Kimber - Continuing The Legacy

    Capcity is 7+1 plenty of .45acp rounds for me

    Weight unloaded is 25oz, loaded I gets about 30oz.

    Pics comparison:


    Mouse in for scale


    Almost the same exact size!






    I still prefer the Kahr PM as my primary carry piece, but Kimber will work just fine also...mainly during the cooler months.

    What about weight? I would imagine the 1911 is a good bit heavier.

    The Ultra is going to weigh about 4-5 ounces more...but definitely worth the weight.
    I'd be carrying the Kimber...
