The Top Five things to consider about the Kahr CW40
Size: First of all, Kahr has done an excellent job on making this bad boy fit right in the palm of your hand. If you’ve got huge hands, this gun might be a little uncomfortable to shoot. But hey, this is a concealed carry, if you want something that fits perfectly in your hand, you’d probably be looking at a full-framed pistol or revolver...
How I got it:
I was not in the market for a new gun. I was minding my own business and just happened to sell a Glock 22 I had cut down to a Glock 23 size and had some extra cash from the sale. So I went to the gun store to look for toys. I fondled the 1911s, longing to one day buy the S&W E Series bobtail scadnium framed beauty I had in my hand. I spent some time with the M&Ps, fondled a safetyless Shield, played with a Glock 36, and then went browsing in the used gun case. Gen 3 Glock 23 for $425 almost got me to buy, but then I noticed the Kahrs were next to the used guns. The CW9 they had was a model with a laser and was $379, I didn't want the laser but they wouldn't sell it to me without the laser, bummer. But then I noticed the little Kahr CW40 next to it. No laser, brand new, and a sticker price of $339. I am not afraid of 40 cal guns, and love the cartridge so I bought the little beast for $359.45 out the doo
In today’s Gunivore review, we’re gonna be taking a look at the Kahr CW40 (Value Series) and see what makes it so special. Although we’ve already covered CW40’s brother – the CM40 – in a previous article, the smaller .40 S&W Kahr will definitely come up in this piece too.
