Your right. My bad. I was thinking the PM9. Which is the more finely finished and more expensive model.Hodad The cm9 and cw9 are the same price only a size difference, cm9 with a 3" barrel and 2 finger grip, cw9 with a 3 1/2" barrel and 3 finger grip. Price's for the CM/CW are the same amount around here and have been for many years now. Both are the lower price models in the kahr line up. Maybe you are thinking of the PM and P series if there price difference.
Can't speak directly re: the CW9, but I have a CW45 and a CM9. Great guns - both of them. I think you will find that the LC9 is not in the same league as the CW9 (and I'm a big fan of Rugers).Great input guys, thanks! I used to own the Ruger LC9 which is similar to this but it had a ton of annoying safeties and for some reason I had a lot of trouble getting good with that gun. It's trigger was just funky. Heck I shoot better with my tiny LCP than with the LC9!
Has anyone owned both the LC9 and CW9 or at least shot them both before? What are your conclusions? I think that would be the ultimate laugh test for me.
I think you have your Kahrs mixed up. The CW9 is the 'budget' model of the P9; these two are nearly identical, but the CW9 lacks the polygonal rifling of the P9, it has some less-fancy machining, and it comes with just 1 magazine, not 2.Kahr's a great weapon. You may want to look at the CM9. Basically the same gun As a CW9 with a few less aesthetics, but a significant difference in price.
