Product Description
The union of advanced design, quality materials and proper construction makes Kahr's CM40 the smallest, thinnest, most reliable full power compact pistol, a value that can't be matched. Designed as a low-cost version of their popular PM40, Kahr's CM40 pistol is a top-of-the-line performer when it comes to accuracy and reliability. The CM40 differs from its predecessor by having traditional rifling rather than the PM40's polygonal rifling, a change that greatly reduces cost without sacrificing accuracy. The CM40 weighs in at only about 15.8 ounces, but its built to be extremely durable. Its black polymer frame features patented 4140 steel inserts molded into the frame in the front and back for added rigidity and strength, which can withstand firing thousands of rounds. Kahr's incomparable cocking cam trigger system employs a patented cam to both unlock the firing pin block and complete cocking and releasing of the firing pin. The system provides a safe-cam action and an unbelievably smooth double-action-only trigger stroke, making the CM40 fast to fire in critical defensive situations. The CM40 also features drift adjustable, white bar-dot combat sights.

Comments about Kahr Arms CM40 Handgun:

This is an excellent handgun for personal protection. It can be easily carried in the pocket or an inside the waist holster. Much thinner and lighter than a comparable G27.

More break-in required than Glock, but worth it.
When you get a Kahr pistol, field strip it, clean it and lubricate appropriately. Rack the slide back and leave it back for a couple of days before going to the range. Fill up the magazine and compress the spring and leave it full.

READ THE INSTRUCTIONS about loading by using the slide stop lever, and not riding the slide by hand to chamber a round.

I have put 300 rounds of various types of ammo through mine and it went bang every time. No failures of any kind. Very accurate for a short barrel compact pistol.

You should try and work the slide some before choosing this pistol. You will need some strength in your hands to be happy with this one.
