Kahr® Arms Partners with United Sporting Companies on Three New Special Edition Pistols

Pomona, NY – Kahr Arms steps up to meet the ever-increasing demand for pistols in mission specific colors. Kahr Firearms Group has had much success with their unique products introduced this year with various colors for both their polymer frames and stainless steel slides.  Kahr Arms is now partnering with United Sporting Companies for an exclusive line of their most popular sized 9mm, .40 S&W and .45 ACP pistols offered with Cerakote’s sleek new “Burnt Bronze” finish slides and attractive black appointments on the frames.  The Burnt Bronze finish combines colors of a tactical understated earth tone with a beautiful rich bronze color.  Kahr then combines black appointments on their black polymer frame to complete a truly desirable appearance.

The first offering in Burnt Bronze is the CW9093BB. The pistol features a 3.565” barrel with conventional rifling, and a 1-10 right-hand twist. The weight, height and width of this firearm make it perfect for concealed carry. It measures 4.5” in height, and 5.9” in overall length.

    I wonder if they’ll sell just the slide and black take down lever so I could retrofit my CW9. Nothing wrong with stainless, but this might be fun…

      It’d probably be cheaper to get the slide refinished itself. I wouldn’t trust cerakote to a carry gun myself. Ionbond does a bronze/copper colored PVD finish that’s much more durable. Surprised that’s not what this is given they’ve offered black DLC coated guns before who are done by the same company.
