As most know I have been using a steel E9 as my everyday gun well after many rounds out of it I decided to make it a keeper instead of just a daily tool.
First off I had a dovetail cut into the front of the slide to use the standard front sight from a Kahr K9.
I then changed the sights to the SX Big Dots sights.
Then added smooth wood grips.
Then changed the trigger from the NYPD trigger to the Elite trigger.
Also added a Harrts Recoil Reducer.
Last was to change the Mag springs to the extra power springs from Wolffe and recoil spring to 23 lb instead of the 20lb factory spring.
All that is left is to refinsh the entire gun, but I just added up how much this all cost and was pretty surprised.
Harrts $55.00(bought on Ebay)
XS sights $127.00(shipped)
Total Cost $355.00
Before I did all this I shot decent groups and a fairly good speed usally 275 to 280 scores and today I shot a 300 perfect score, and not believing that that the mods had improved my shooting that much I did the course again and shot another 300 score and the times were noticable faster. Several local and state LEOs were very surprised and asked to try the E9 and were very impressed.Before the day was done my Kahr had fired almost 1,800 rounds and not any malfuntions. Now I got a few asking me if they get a Kahr can I do theirs like I did mine.
I have mainly used revolvers with the exception of a Delta Elite and a 1911,and Sig 228. But my constant always on me gun was a S&W Model 60 for almost 20 years. This little Kahr is the first pistol I felt was as reliable and my Model 60.
