    1st review

    Gun enthusiast has told me, that due to popularity, the price of the Khar handgun has gone up. Suggested Retail is $533, however, I paid just over $400 for mine. I wanted a simple, reliable, and compact 9mm to carry off duty and as back up. Brand new out of the box, I had to slap the back of the slide a few times to get the round to completely chamber, but since the weapon is now “broken in”, I haven’t had any issues with it. It turned out to be a great buy.

    i don't have the kahr cw9 but the kahr p45, same size, same frame, meaner bite. kicks like a pissed off mule but very comfortable to carry daily and i do carry it every day. makes a great concealed off duty carry and a on duty back up. a bit over priced but no regrets

    I have owned my CW9 for about two years. I was initially warned that there was some feeding issues during 'break-in'. I was warned to put at least 300 rounds through to get past this. I used the inexpensive Winchester White Box with no problems. I have since put more White Box through it and some self defense hollow points. I have had not trouble with the ramp.

    It's a fantastic size. It carries well inside the waistband. It handles great. I can't think of any problems with this piece. I can only carry seven in the mag and one in the pipe. So, i carry an extra mag.

    Again, I love mine. Great size but capable weapon!

    Although a lot of guys (and gals) frown on the 7+1 capacity I don't. I now carry this instead of my 191. The capacity is the same, its light, reliable and cost me only $400.00 new. It does have a long trigger pull that would have to get used to, but I don't mind spending time at the range. With th advances in 9mm technology i don't fell under-gunned. I carry Cor-Bon +p rounds with two spare 8round mags. I can fit it in the front pocket of most of my jeans (i wear loose fitting clothes) when wearing dress pants it fits nicely on the waist. $400 new high value low price

    Right out of the box, it was reliable (despite the company's 200 rd. break-in recommendation), accurate, and very concealable. Great for back-up and off-duty. Only complaint is that since it only comes with one magazine, buying an extra(s) is very expensive.
