Kahr Delays CW380 and CM45 Pistols

Kahr CW380

Kahr Arms announced on the company website that shipping will be delayed on the CW380 and CM45 pistols.

This matches the information that we got at the SHOT Show, where we were told that the CM45 had been put on hold.  The CM45 was shown at the show, but company reps stated that is would be “at least” the fourth quarter of 2013 before the gun would be ready.

The CW380 is listed on the company site, but the CM45 is not.

From Kahr:


Due to the unprecedented demand on our entire line of American made “C” series products, the highly anticipated launch of the CW3833 and the CM4543 has been delayed until late fall.

To our valued customers and dealers, we apologize for this delay. Our staff has worked feverishly during the summer months to catch up but demand has continued unabated for our current products and especially the CW and CM series. We have taken this action to formally announce this delay in shipping until late fall. Please revisit our website in the fall for updates on shipping status.

    Here in northern California, P series are easy to come by–not too surprising given their price tag, but C series are few and far between. And we don’t get the CM series, only the CWs. I saw one in a shop a couple of weeks ago at a fair price and made an impulse purchase before it was gone.

    I’ve owned a PM9 and an E9 for probably more than 10 years now, though I didn’t shoot either of them all that much. I recently did a four day handgun course, first day with my PM9, remaining three days with my E9, and was frankly surprised by how delightful they were to shoot for an extended amount of time (~8 hours a day, start/stop, about 650 rds in total). And, as is usually the case with me, way more accurate than I am. I’m really pleased.
