Kahr Arms CM9 in Cerakote Armor Black

posted on May 12, 2016

A new Cerakote finish has entered the Kahr Arms CM line of handguns: Cerakote H-190 Armor Black. Of course it offers all the protection against the wear and tear that comes with using your firearm, but its chalky finish gives it a practical look many gun owners prefer. In addition to the new coating, the Cerakote Armor Black pistols come with a flat black stainless steel slide, a black textured polymer grip as well as black appointments. There’s some sort of color scheme there…

The CM45 is a .45 ACP caliber handgun, has a 5+1 capacity, a trigger cocking DOA, lock breech and a passive striker block. Its barrel is 3.34 inches long with conventional rifling of 1-16.38 right-hand twist. The CM45 is 5.79 inches in overall length, 1.01 inches wide and 4.49 inches in height. It weighs 17.3 ounces and has a drift adjustable white bar-dot combat rear sight and a pinned in polymer front sight.

The CM9 is a 9 mm caliber semisutomatic, has a 6+1 round capacity, and manufactured with the same operations as the CM45 (trigger cocking DOA, lock breech, etc.). Its barrel is 3.1 inches long with conventional rifling of 1-10 right-hand twist. The CM45 is 5.42 inches in overall length, 4.0 inches in height, and weighs 14 ounces. Its sights include a drift adjustable, white bar-dot combat and a pinned in polymer front sight.

Customers interested in purchasing a Kahr CM9 or CM45 in Cerakote H-190 can ask their firearms dealer to purchase it exclusively from MGE Wholesale.
