There was quite a buzz at the 2015 SHOT Show in Las Vegas in January, and a lot of that excitement was due to the unveiling of the new Gen2 Kahr Premium Series pistols. A year ago, the engineers at Kahr took a look at their existing premium line and decided to start with the basics, but then re-engineered it to give it a refreshing new look. The result is a new design that is sleeker and more tactical in appearance than their existing premium models.
The new Gen2 Premium pistols speak to the quality, accuracy and 100 percent made in the USA product that has always been Kahr's mission. With even tighter tolerances and so many upgrades, it truly is the second generation of Kahr pistols. Some of the added value features of the new Gen2 Premium series include:
shortened trigger stroke allowing for quicker firing rates– 30% shorter than premium model
integrated trigger safety
accessory rail for lasers and lights
front slide serrations on 5-inch and 6-inch barrel models
6-inch compensated barrel model
Leupold Deltapoint Red Dot mount (5-inch barrel models) with tall target sights
Leupold Deltapoint Red Dot optic included with 6-inch barrel models
TRUGLO TFX Tritium/Fiber-Optic Day/Night sights standard on 3.5-inch and 4-inch barrel models
Safe-Cam striker-fired action
double recoil spring system for reduced felt recoil
redesigned magazine base and grip for a sleeker look
slide machined from the highest quality of stainless steel available for firearms
serial tag on grip frame
ergonomic single stack grip frame fits most hand sizes from small to large
ships with 3 magazines and a lockable, hard, polymer case
The Gen2 Premium pistols will be offered in a total of 12 models, four barrel lengths and three calibers including 9 mm, .40 S&W and .45 ACP. MSRP on the new series will range from $976 to $1,668 and will be available in the 9 mm and .45 ACP in July/August 2015 and the .40 S&W in December 2015.
