The trigger pull on every Kahr I’ve ever tested–quite a few–has been long but smooth. There is no magazine disconnect, so if you have a round in the chamber and the magazine is out of the gun, this pistol can still be fired. The CW45 is striker-fired, so there’s no hammer.
Since its modest one-pistol beginning, Kahr Arms has been known for innovation and quality. The company’s first pistol, still part of its lineup, was the K9, a 9mm double-action-only (DAO) compact. The solid-steel, compact pistol looked and felt great in the hand, but some felt it had a single drawback—weight. Not that the K9 was really heavy, but its 9mm chambering and size seemed to beg for a polymer frame, dropping the weight by 8 ounces and making carriers happy. Years after the K9’s introduction at a 1995 industry trade show, Kahr started popping out polymer frames to satisfy the clamor.
I love my PT145 but I have been considering picking something a bit thinner up summer time carry. I like the looks of the CW45. It's light and flat. Decent capacity. The only thing that scares me is that some of the reviews I've seen on the net have stated problems with the mags dropping out of the CW line. Anyone know if that has been corrected? Hows the recoil? Accuracy?
