It is all the MIM parts used in the cost down CW series. The Moonies saving them dollars.
MIM parts is what brought Kimber down! They just went Bonkers in Yonkers and killed the goose that lays the golden eggs!
I now refuse to work on Kahr and Kimber. Send them back and get them out of my shop.
The Kahr was approved for NYPD off duty and backup carry.
Kahr originally did not make a firearm that met MA's "safety" requirement. Neither did a lot of other companies, including Glock.

BTW, do you ever try to check the factuality of any of your statements? A google check took all of 30 seconds.
Kahr also never made a gun that is on my approval list either. I was in a war and got stuck with a 1911 rust magnet and jamomatic. The best thing I ever did was find a Makarov and it never failed me in two tours. Plenty of ammo all over the place too. Plus you could carry a bunch of it in your pockets. Finest and best designed Military Weapon I ever fired and carried. It sure saved my butt numerous times. Pour some #2 diesel fuel on it and it was ready to go again. Tough as nails.
You're allowed to bring your own weapon on tours of duty? (I'm not military, so I don't know.)
I've owned two Kahr guns , the PM 40 and the CW9 and had trouble with both.
I won't go into all that now , I'll just speak to the recoil issue.
I nicknamed my PM40 "Zeus" because shooting it was like casting lighting bolts
out of you bare hands.
I sold it and the cw9 and got better guns to carry.Done&Done

I tried a Glock 33 (same size as G27) and found it to be too bulky and grip-heavy for me. I recently traded it off and decided to give Kahr another look. I had a CW9 1.5yrs ago and had issues with light primer strikes. It took 3 trips to the factory to cure that issues and soured my taste for Kahr for a while. Had I known then what i know now, I most likely could have fixed the CW9 in about 30 mins and would still be carrying it. The Kahrs have an awesome trigger and the build quality is impressive to say the least. I recently decided to give them another shot and bought a PM40. I've only had it a few weeks now but I've put 300 rounds through it without any problems. It's accurate enough for defensive use and is as easy to conceal as a small .380.
Carry the PM40 with Corbon 135gr JHP or DPX 140gr SCHP

Thanks to most of you for the input so far. My PM9 has been perfect so far with about 300 rounds of various FMJ, JHP's. No FTF's, FTE's, plating issues, etc. it goes boom every time.
I know Kahr has had some issues in the past but it seems like they have gotten their act together in the last year, thus the reason I have waited until recently to buy one.

Having both guns but in different calibers (9mm G26,CW9). I'd say the nod would go every time to the Glock. Both are excellent pistols, but if I was ask which one I prefer, the Glock wins the day everyday.
