    More on Kahr CW9 breakin

    I finished the breakin process for my Kahr CW9 tonight. As of now, it has fired without a single feeding, firing, or extracting problem the following types of ammo (all 115gr FMJ unless otherwise specified):

    CCI Blazer Brass
    CCI Blazer Aluminum
    PCI Brass
    Hornady 124gr JHP

    for a total of 300 rounds. Looks like keeping it cleaned and lubed is all one needs . . . now if I can just learn to shoot it well . . .

    Good to hear,I've look at the CW9 an would like to have one
    but the Glock G26 was higher on my list so I got it instead.
    But the CW9 is still on the list :)
    Thanks for the report.

    CW-9 Break in

    My CW-9 has been 100% reliable after about 250 rounds. Last 50 being all hollow points that I carry. Another surprise for me is the little gun is very accurate also.
    I carried and still do occasionally a G-19. The only problem with the G-19 is the width. I needed a thinner gun for concealment as I don't have much waist anymore.

    Everytime I see a new .380 released I look at it and say to myself, "I rather have a Kahr CW-9).

    Ther used to be some problems with the less expensive CW line but Kahr appears to have solved them.

    Next on my list.

    I'm still having the occational light strike. Last week I had two occur during about only 5 magazines worth of ammo. I'm bummed out...I'd really like this gun to work, but it lets me down sometimes. On the other hand, my T9 has been absolutely perfect every time. I wonder what the difference is???

    I have P9 with about 1500 rounds through it with nary a problem. I too carry it because of its width.

    Guide Rod

    Hi everyone - for those with the CW9, have you noticed if the spring is eating up the guide rod? Mine is.

    Mine has been flawless thru rounds into the thousands.
    I don't carry a gun because I feel inadequate.

    I carry a gun because unarmed and facing three armed thugs, I am inadequate.

    My CW 40 has been flawless through about 500 rounds of mixed ammo. The only real differences between the CW series and P series Kahrs are pinned front sight, MIM slide stop and conventional rifling as opposed to polygonal and fewer machining operations and engravings on slide exterior. There is nothing mechanically or operationally different about the CW series and they are just as reliable and well made as the higher priced Kahrs of which I own two also.
    When I leave the home port:
    S&W 642 Airweight, Ruger SP 101, Colt Detective Spec., CZ RAMI, Kahr PM9, Kahr CW40, S&W Model 10-7, Glock 30, 19, and 26, Browning Hi Power, CZ82, Colt Commander, Dan Wesson PM7, Ruger LCP

    Mine has over 500 flawless rounds through it. Won't fit my pocket like I would like but I got others for that job.

    Mine has also been perfect. I don't carry it much because I want more caliber/capacity, but it is a great weapon for what it is.
