The CM Series takes the value priced features from Kahr's CW series (3.6 barrel 9mm .40 S&W and .45 ACP models) and incorporates these features into a smaller 3 barrel package. The CM9093 has the same external dimensions as the PM9093 which make it ideal for concealed carry by licensed civilians and law enforcement personnel. The CM9093 is chambered in a 9 x 19 caliber has a 3.0 barrel and an overall length of 5.42 with a height of 4.0. The pistol weighs in at 14 ounces plus 1.9 ounces for the 6 rd stainless steel magazine. Differences between the CM models and PM models are the CM9093 has a conventional rifled barrel instead of the match grade polygonal barrel on Kahr's PM series; the CM slide stop lever is MIM (metal-injection-molded) instead of machined; the CM series slide has fewer machining operations and uses simple roll marking instead of engraved markings and finally the CM series are shipped with one magazine instead of two magazines. Kahr's seven patents are incorporated into the CM9093 resulting in benefits not available in other compact semi-autos on the market today. The black polymer frame features patented 4140 steel inserts molded into the frame in the front and back for added rigidity and strength which can withstand firing thousands of round. Specifications: Overall Length: 5.42" Width: .9" Height: 4" Weight: 14 oz (unloaded)

Kahr CM9 Features

The Kahr CM9 is a semi-automatic, striker-fired, polymer-framed pistol that operates on a Browning style short-recoil action with a tilting barrel.  Its slide is made of stainless steel and contains windage-adjustable sights and a 3.1 inch barrel.  The trigger has a relatively heavy pull to set the striker and to make up for the gun’s lack of external or trigger safety mechanisms.

Kahr CM9 Capacity

The Kahr CM9 is chambered in 9x19mm and feeds from single-stack magazines.  The standard flush-fit magazine holds 6 rounds while larger 10 round magazines are available through aftermarket sources.

Kahr CM9 Ergonomics

The Kahr CM9 has a similar grip profile to a Glock 26 with its boxy sort of feel and has a sandpaper style grip texturing on the sides and square checkering along the front and back.  The magazine release and slide lock are set up for right-handed use, and the slide is serrated on either side of the rear sight to offer a better grip when cycling the action against the heavy recoil spring.

Kahr CM9 Fit & Finish

The CM9 has a stainless steel slide and barrel to prevent rust and a polymer frame that is made of a very cost-effective polymer.  These guns are no longer produced but can be found second-hand in varying conditions of wear, however you won’t ever find one with any rust on it as all of the metal components are made of stainless steel.
Fit and Finish

Kahr CM9 Concealability

The CM9 measures less than 6 inches long, approximately 4 inches tall and 1.2 inches wide making it very easy to conceal in anything other than tight-fitting clothing.  The rounded edges along the back of the slide and frame and the slanted rear sight prevent the gun from digging into the body of the person who is carrying it.
