The T40 is an accurate and nicely balanced semi-automatic handgun from innovative Kahr Arms. The T40 is a double-action-only pistol that uses a Browning-style recoil lug with a passive striker block. Kahr's patented offset barrel design places the trigger mechanism beside the barrel lug, raising the shooter's hand close to the center line of the bore. This, with the ergonomically designed grips, results in a remarkable degree of shooting comfort and control with reduced muzzle flip and felt recoil. The T4 extractor is designed so that it employs the slide itself to limit its movement so that failures to extract are nearly impossible. Its barrel is precisely cut to length and CNC-machined from a solid round billet of high tensile strength proprietary steel with nearly 75% of the billet is machined away, resulting in the greatest material integrity and tightest tolerances possible. Also precision computer machined, the Kahr slide is made from 416 Stainless Steel bar stock before being heat-treated and tempered to optimize durability.
