New Finish Available for Kahr CW9

    The Kahr CW9 has been around for a few years now and has certainly gained popularity among many gun owners for concealed carry use. The original CW9 is a striker-fired pistol chambered in 9mm with a 7 +1 capacity. This new release from Kahr is similar to the first in those ways as well as in others, but whereas the original was released with a black polymer frame, this one is different.

    The newest finish for the CW9 is Black Carbon Fiber. The company chose it hoping for a 3-dimensional appearance. The polymer frame has a “textured weave” look and matte stainless steel slide. Features include a textured grip and DAO trigger. This will also be the only gun in Kahr’s lineup with drift-adjustable white 3-dot sights.

    This model is currently also available in purple, burnt bronze, and with a front night sight.

    MSRP $495. This finish is not yet listed in the company’s website but you can look at the original finish here.

    Having a single-stack, affordably priced 9mm is appealing to many gun owners. Of course, you might be interested in something else entirely, and they do offer quite a few other options. If you’re interested in looking at Kahr’s entire product line, visit their website:
