Limited Edition Kahr Arms .380 ACP


Kahr Arms, a small-arms manufacturer whose founder started the company based on his personal belief that the carry guns available were lacking in both construction and features, is now offering a new color of pistol. The company has partnered with Davidson’s on the pistol which is a double-action, semi-auto, micro-compact chambered in .380 ACP. The gun is called the CW3833CG and is a limited edition offering.

The CW3833CG weighs in at 10.2 ounces, empty, and measures 4.96″ in length, 3.9″ tall. It has a 2.58″ rifled barrel. The frame is black polymer and the slide is stainless steel. The gun has several components with a bright gold Cerakote finish including the slide, slide release, and trigger. Capacity is 6+1.

From Kahr:

“The pistol features a lock breech, modified Browning type recoil lug, and utilizes Kahr’s seven patents including the “safe cam” action found in all Kahr pistols. The result is a micro-compact pistol with very little recoil and quick follow-up shots. The pistol also has a drift adjustable white bar-dot combat rear sight and a pinned-in polymer front sight.”

MSRP $439. The gun is shipped with two magazines. You can visit for a closer look. Once you’re on the site click on “Gun Genie” and enter “CW3833CG.” Visit the company’s website to see their entire line of firearms:

    Yay for bling! I expect this to sell like hot cakes in gangster-ridden areas like Detroit, Chicago, and D.C. Oh wait, that’s right, they steal their guns…

    Am I the only one who finds gold tacky?

    I can handle jewelry that is not overcompensating in its size, but I can’t stand gold trim on things, or as a primary color like cell phones.

    I work aviation, and so many older planes have interiors trimmed in gold on the metal fixtures… it’s horrid.

    • Justin Roney

      I would imagine Mr. Trump’s 757 that sits at LGA most of the time is a prime example…

      • marine6680

        I work aviation, he landed where I work twice last year for campaigning… I didn’t see the inside. The outside was bad, but not horrible, bit it hinted at the inside.

        Planes owned by oil rich middle easterners were the worst…

        • Justin Roney

          Haha, yea I’ve seen some of the interior pictures floating around. The best story I heard was the Prince that wanted to buy a new 777 with an Olympic length swimming pool where the cargo compartments are normally located, and the Boeing engineers had to devise a complete pumping system to keep the water from changing the CG, especially during takeoff and landing…

    My comment expressing my opinion that gold is tacky gets deleted…

    But the comment about “bling” and intercity gang violence gets to stay…

    OK then

    I actually like it. Cerakote is FAR tougher than 24k plate.

    Then again, I kind of want one of those Taurus 1911s in bright chrome with gold small parts and pearl grips in .38 Super. I could put “El Duderino” on the slide for that custom touch. Half a key of Coca Cola not included.

    • gunsandrockets

      The pimped versions of Taurus handguns was exactly what came to my mind too when I saw that gold Kahr.

      • My friend refers to those as the “Sinaloa Specials.”

      • El Duderino

        “Pimped” isn’t quite right…more like “Carteled”.

  • Edeco

    Bleh, mag and I guess that’s a serial number plate still stainless. Not a fan of gold anyway, but having other metal finish as well makes it worse. Kahr are losing prestige in my eyes.

    I might like multiple metal finishes if they’re not just cosmetic, like parkerized frame + straw case-hardened hammer & trigger.

  • Will

    CW380 is a personal favorite.
    Reliable, rugged, well built and shoots to point of aim.
    No complaints.

  • I would have preferred gold Titanium Nitride, but overall I have to say it’s a handsome piece.

    Full size gold guns never did it for me, but for such a tiny blaster it works. Sort of like a gold Zippo that shoots.

  • Kjk

    distributor specials are usually pretty lame. What is davidsons anyway? I see the name only for distributor specials, is that where gun shops order their guns?

  • iksnilol

    Only if I can engrave “feeling like MONEY” on the slide.

    Other than that, fantastic piece.
