Didn't see anything about the CW9, so I'm starting this thread for anyone interested in the CW9. I bought one a few years ago. Eventhough I'm old and not into cutting edge technology my two step-sons now own CW9's. I haven't shot a large number of rounds thru it, but it fits my hand fine and so far I like the way it handles.

thanks ffadmim - for the reply - I do like the size of the CW9 for concealed carry and the lower cost of the CW series. The only similar pistol I've had was a Glock 19, but I think I shoot the Kahr better. Dave

I bought a CW9 recently because of it's size, weight and the way it fits my hand. I haven't shot it yet, but it must be a great CC gun in 9 mm. Frankly, I don't see much difference between CW9 and P9...not enough to justify the price difference.

If the Kahr is a trouble-free shooter, I'll probably become fond of it. The negative nuances with field strip difficulty and chambering by use of the slide release are just things to get accustomed to.

I do wonder about the need to be mindful about slide stop spring position when re-inserting the slide stop pin during reassembly. Is that a real issue that can mess up the pistol's operation if you get it wrong?

I've been really happy with my CW9. Field stripping hasnt been a problem at all. I carry Hornaday PD or HydraShock. At the range I shoot whatever... never had any FTFs or FTEs.

Yes it can so take a couple extra seconds to put it back in right.

I will be picking a cw9 tomorrow in the am. I would like to go through the "break down period" ad soon as I can. With the lack of 9mm ammo available at this moment, do anybody knows where I can buy some good ammo that will allow me to do so without breaking the bank?

Howdy and congrats!!! Keep checking everywhere!!! With most of the big stores starting to limit to a box or two you might find some at academy or walmart.

I am in Texas DFW area and 9mm is very hard to come by. I went to the range today and did not havecto wait. :confused:

I recently received my CW9 and have cleaned and lubed it in preparation for going to the range. All I've been able to get for the break-in is 100 rounds of PPU FMJ but I should be receiving 300 rounds of Speer Lawman TMJ plus 200 rounds of Speer Gold Dot JHP. I'm glad to hear that folks like their CW9. I'll report on my experiences when I can.

Nuke I really do like mine I never shot a 9mm till this one so I dont have anything to compare to. But it shot much better than I was expecting it to. For a cheaper model kahr its worth it.. let us know that you think:D

Sorry for the dealy but so far I've shot over 200 rounds through my CW9; Speer Lawman TMJ, PPU FMJ, Fiocchi FMJ, Remington Golden Saber JHP and Hornady Critical Duty JHP. All fired and fed flawlessly. I have UMC FMJ on the way. The magazines that I keep for defense have the Golden Sabers and Critical Duty.

I have owned, shot and carried a CW9 for a few years now. I have shot hundreds of rounds, zero problems mostly 115 gr. ball and Rem 115 gr.HP's I have 45's but perfer this as my carry gun with a spare mag on my off side. Shoots excellent groups for a 3.6" barrel gun.Carry for 9-12 hrs/day . I did polish the ramp with buffing wheel and jewelers compound. 9mm shoot w/low recoil. ammo cheaper too (when you can find some to buy). I have other poly framed guns and a few 1911's -but this CW9 hides well, light weight,great trigger, shoot great, what is not to like?

Mine has about 500rnds through it. Slight wear on the plastic rails. At 25 ft it is dead accurate. At 75 feet I notice I have to aim a good foot to the right to get a round in a 12" target

If you reload be sure you don't buy the steel case ammo at Academy. The price is so good you won't look and they just hand it to you from the shelf. The only way to beat the shortage is to reload your own! I like the CM9 except for the trigger being ill designed...It pinches the top of my finger. And I am a little unnerved by the lack of any safety. Other than that it is a tack driver and doesn't recoil hardly at all...It also seems to be heavier than it actually is. The Ruger LC9 is slightly heavier but seems to carry lighter. I am not sure I will keep it yet...
