Just got my "almost new" CM9. I decided to do the right thing and actually read the owner's manual before I disassembled it. Guess what?
The manual has directions for disassembling a lot of named Kahr models, but NO CM models. It looks like the original manual that was shipped with the gun to the first owner, since it was still in the plastic with the warranty card, etc.
So much for trying to read the manual before disassembling the gun!
Thanks, Khar.

There's no differences other that cosmetic and rifling between the pm and cm .
If that's the case, the manual could have easily said that. New owners aren't necessarily supposed to know that. That's what owner's manuals are for.

Here is an ok YouTube vid on take down and assembly of the CM9. If it hasn't been fired much, I would lubricate it on the heavy side and rack the slide a couple hundred times before shooting it. That will loosen it up some and help with the break in.......

Thanks for the video link. I actually found a couple when I couldn't find anything in the manual. Even so, I prefer to read what the manufacturer has to say rather what someone on the internet says. Not all gun videos are correct!

Try reading the manual again. I just bought a cm9 and there is a couple of pistols shown but as I read further it tells about the pm or cm. They are about the same as far as take down.

Let me also say this:
Thanks to all who have responded here. All of the responses have been mature, helpful and friendly.
I posted this exact same message on another Kahr website, and I immediately began to get hateful, condemning responses that I had dared to say something bad about Kahr.
I have received nothing like that here. I guess I know where the adults are now!

Thanks.......appreciate the kind comment !! As 72blackie stated in his last post, the Kahrs listed are all pretty much the same. And that is true for all the Kahr models, as they use the same trigger and design across their lineup. The good thing about that is if you have a Kahr and are used to the trigger and feel of that particular gun, any of the others will feel very familiar and natural to you.........

Unless its a hand fitted custom pistol I think the break in period is really for the shooter.

The recoil spring does settle in, and the rails smooth up a bit.
