    Kahr CW45 My Take:

    Well I took a hundred rounds of the cheapest nastiest FMJ I could find, $16 a box 235 grain, and headed for the range today. I am sorry that I forgot my camera but trust me when I say my shooting with the new gun was not exceptional. I had zero feed, fire or ejection issues with the Kahr today. I have decided I do not like the sights but will give myself a few more range trips before I decide if I am going to change them.


    The gun itself feels great fires smoothly even under rapid fire but low and left for me. I shot from 3,5,7,15 and 25 yards and had about a 16 inch group after it was all said and done. I did kneeling, standing from 15 and prone and standing from 25; the basic 50 round qualifying course.


    It will not replace my EDC SA XDsc but I do feel like it is a gun I could trust in the future with more range time.
    I guess I should mention the reason I used the cheapest ammo I could find was to test the weapon itself. I have cleaned it and loaded it with Magtech JHP 235 grain which I feel is a pretty dependable ammo.

    Over all I enjoyed shooting the 45 though I am on the fence with the (I think they are called ) Novack sights. It has a very manageable kick even at its light weight.

    shooting low/left it pretty common for those new to Kahr, or other long DA triggers, at first. I did the same with my CW9 for a hundred or so rounds, until I shot enough and dry fired enough (wall drill) to get familiar with the trigger. You'll get adjusted. As for the sights.... I don't like the "bar-dot" sights either, and installed the trijicon 3 dot night sights as soon as they were available for the CW series.

    I'm going to swap up to trijicons on my PM9 as well.

    I find the Kahr trigger sufficient for very accurate shooting, but I can't double-tap or fire rapidly/accurately like I can with a Glock or 1911.

    Keep putting them down range and those groups will tighten up. That trigger just takes a lot of practice time to gain proficiency. What I want to know is how did your shooting hand feel after 100 rounds through that cheese grater?

    My hand felt fine. I even shot 200 rounds through my EDC and a box through my Duty Sig.

    The only thing I have found that my CW45 doesn't like is TulAmmo. It absolutely refused to function with the steel case. As for accuracy, the gun is not designed to be a tack driving range gun, it's purpose is a concealable self defense weapon. For that purpose it works very well.

    Sorry about being late to the thread...

    I ran a couple boxes of TulAmmo thru mine with no problem what-so-ever, so I would seriously question the absolute-ness of your claim. I have found that it carries quite well for me being a lefty and not having to worry about saftey/dexterity issues.
