I just brought a used Kahr K 9.
In New York, the dealer needs to wait 2 weeks after logging in a gun, before he can sell it, so I've been waiting patiently.
Is there anything I should know about the gun? Pro? Con?
I just looked at a K9 today. If you don't mind me asking, what did you pay for it? What made you decide on the K9? I am not very familiar with them, but it looked and felt good in my hand.
My research tells me that Kahr makes good, quality, guns. I was looking for a smaller 9MM to compliment my Glock 19, and basically, the Kahr was sitting on top of the counter, as the FFL had just purchased it from a retired NYPD officer, who carried, but never fired the gun, as his off duty. I like the slimmer grip which seems to fit my hand better than the Glock does. And, the gun is all steel. With a lower capacity, I think it will weigh the same as the loaded Glock in an easier-to-carry package. The FFL asked for $250.00. which I thought was more than fair. In his town on LI, he has to hold a gun for 2 weeks, before reselling it. So, for a few bucks more, I'll pick it up with a thorough clean-up, and all new intwernal springs.
How much was the one you looked at selling for?
I am going to check for sure tomorrow, but I believe it was around $500. Your deal for $250 sounds really good. I had never considered a Kahr, but I saw the K9 in the case and really liked it. I've been trying to look for a good smaller 9mm. My daughter has the G19 and likes it, but I was wanting something a little smaller. Thanks for sharing the price with me.
Both of those sound like good prices; $500 is reasonable, $250 is outstanding!
I bought a Nickel K9 the first year they were manufactured. I've never been disappointed with my choice. I like metal guns - no plastic. Excellent carry piece. It is my main concealed carry gun and I wear it every day. The gun is extremely tight - which is a good thing. When Kahr hit the market, they recommended a 200-250 round break-in period. Not sure of they still do. I never had a fail-to-fire or fail-to-feed. Excellent choice IMO.
Hi; I just purchased a K9; I had to have metal frame, smaller size, quality gun ; that felt right . The K9 seems to do it all! The only bad thing is I live in Ma. and had to be compliant to laws and buy a used Ma. owned gun; and pay the somewhat high buck $750 / lightly used, nice gun. John
