posted on July 11, 2016

Kahr’s CW9 is a popular small carry gun, and the 9 mm version is now available in a Black Carbon Fiber finish. This new finish, along with a purposefully-chosen textured grip, gives the gun a three dimensional look.

It features a lock breach, Browning-type recoil lug, passive striker block, no magazine disconnect and it operates with a trigger cocking DOA. It is manufactured with a rag checkering polymer grip for a confident and comfortable hold. The CW9 has a pinned in polymer front sight and it is the only product in the line with a drift adjustable white three dot combat rear sight. Its overall length is 5.9 inches is weighs 15.8 ounces and has a 7+1 capacity.
