The CW9 offers the same patented features seen in higher-priced Kahr Arms pistols in an ultra-thin package. CW pistols have a stainless steel slide with a matte finish and a rectangular slide profile. The CW45 utilizes a lock breech, passive striker block design with a Browning-style recoil lug. Despite its durable construction, it weighs only 15.8 ounces. The thin, textured polymer grip is designed to fit snugly in the hand as you fire. A drift-adjustable white bar-dot combat rear sight and a pinned polymer blade front sight combine to create a precise and accurate sighting profile.
