    Mags

    I'm about to purchase a CW9, and whoo! Those Kahr mags are a bit pricy. I've heard of some issues with aftermarket mags (failing to lock slide on last shot, etc.), and was wondering if any of you Kahr owners had any +/- experience with any of them.

    Thanks!

    I love mine. I did have some issues at first with the mag release, but I called them, they shipped me a new one, no charge. Great customer service. I have a K98 Elite 40 and it shoots great. I dunno if I'd like the plastic ones, but the all steel one I have is one of my carry pistols. It's not my primary, but when I need something a bit smaller, that's what I carry. They are well built and shoot any ammo I've ever thrown at it.

    You'll enjoy it, just make sure you function test it before carrying it of course.

    I think I've decided on the CW9 as well. Let's compare notes. I think I'll pick mine up Friday (if they still have one in stock when I get there).

    Oops...sorry, I should have been a little more clear. What I was wondering was the reliability of the aftermarket (from other manufacturers, like ProMag, etc.) mags, not the Kahr mags.

    Elmer, that's when I was planning to do it to, we'll have to do a tag-team range report!

    My CW9 is on my hip right now. They make great carry guns and mine has been flawless since round #1. I ponied up the money and bought the Kahr mags to avoid any problems. They are around $35 here. My Glock 19 mags are running around $29-$30 at the local shops. They can both be found cheaper on-line.

    I have 2 aftermarket, not Kahr brand, mags for my PM-9. They are junk. Buy Kahr brand mags. If you search a little you can find them on the web reasonably priced. Beware that some of the internet sellers try to make it sound like they have Kahr brand. That's how I ended up with the 2 junk copies. You can find Kahr mags for under $30.

    Murdoch, I couldn't wait. Went up after work today. I posted the range report under the "Just Bought..." thread on the Kahr board.

    Very pleased.

    Awww, you beat me to it! Congrats though. I'm planning on going to get mine this afternoon. I'll post my experiences as well.

    Another 150 rounds through tonight. Tried to get extra mags, but they didn't have any more 9mm ones.

    It's been my experience that aftermarket mags just suck! I think you're better off spending the extra for OEM mags. After all , you only buy them once (or twice)! And if for some reason they don't work right just call the gun manufacturer. Good luck!

    been out of town at a conference and am just getting back online. Glad to hear you got it and that it's working well. I have missed shooting the past week. Sporting clay outing tomorrow and then back to the range with the CW9 Saturday morning!

    Yeah, I'm still sitting on the 1st 60 rounds. I'll probably get there tonight to run another 50 or so through it.
