Default Kahr pistols

I looked at a Kahr PM45 today. It fit my hand well. I liked it alot. I have read some reviews and it seems people either love them or hate them. Does anybody here have any personal experience with a Kahr PM45 or, any other Kahr pistol for that matter. Thanks in advance!

I owned a P9 for a few years. I loved the gun, just hated the trigger. I prefer a short crisp trigger like a XD, glock or other similar pistol has. Fit and finish were great and it never gave me any trouble, I just couldn't get comfortable with the trigger. I've never heard a bad story about a Kahr.

Thanks Seth. I've heard they have a longer travel trigger.

I have a PM40, I love it, never had an issue with it. I probably have 6-700 round through it with no ftf or fte. Its no a comfortable gun to go out and put a bunch of rounds through.

I have the CW 9 and CM 9 both great guns for what they are designed for. The long trigger pull is smooth but long. Good for self defense.

I have 1911's in 45acp, no kahrs

I have a CW45 and love it!!
It's very accurate for its size. There's a reason for the long trigger pull. It's cause it has zero safeties! As for the trigger it is a DAO trigger. Yes it's long, but very smooth and has little to no break at the end. It also has a reset all the way back forward.
I didn't like it at first but I am very comfortable with it now and it is very accurate. It can reach out to the same distance as a full size pistol just as accurately.
One thing is the match barrel (polygonal) cannot shoot full lead ammo.
