Kahr Arms makes high-quality, CNC-machined pistols unmatched at any price. The TP45 is a recoil-operated pistol using a Browning-type system. The barrel is locked to the slide during the initial rearward travel, then disengages to allow the slide to continue rearward for extraction and ejection. An integral stainless steel guide rod helps dampen recoil. Kahr's trigger system employs a cam to unlock the passive safety and complete cocking and releasing of the firing pin. The system provides a "safe cam action" and Kahr's well documented smooth DAO trigger. This pistol has a black polymer frame and a satin stainless slide. Factory magazine capacity is 7+1. The barrel is 4" and has 1-16.38 twist.
