I think Kahrs are falling victim to the increasing availability of easy to rack guns. My LGS guy tells me that he can't move them because anyone who handles one complains of the stiffness of the action. Of course his shelves are nearly empty now but he still says he won't take any more in on trade.

I use ArachnaGrips on mine and it helps immensely but there are still many guns out there that are easier to manipulate.

Also, the trends towards SA striker fired guns seems to be growing. While at one time Kahr carved a niche for itself with its smooth DA pull of its guns, at a time when there weren't a lot of other small and easily concealable semi autos out there, that time has passed, and people find they like the SA triggers on other small striker fired guns preferable. Which leaves nice examples at a great price available for you, me, and (some), others.

Oh, and then there's the capacity thing...

Just my $.04

I don't see myself so much a Kahr fan boy, as an admirer of all nice guns. If I only bought Kahrs, or bought every one that I see selling for less than it should I wouldn't have the funds for the other brands that I have bought. :grin:

I feel your pain. Makes even less sense when you go into the store legally carrying your concealed pistol.

I liked my G27, for a time. Ended up selling the Glocks off though. Maybe yours will stay with you longer.

Yeah, I think we're all resigned to the fact that it's only a pipe dream. There aren't a lot of reasons that come to mind to explain why they wouldn't. In fact in these days when high capacity wonder nines are everywhere a company that only makes low capacity guns should be doing all they can to make and sell big bore offerings. I kind of think that Justin is just happy where his company is at and has no desire to make it bigger.
