    Kahr P9 vs CM9

    What is the main difference in these pistols other than size? Just saw the P9 & PM9 which list for a good bit more than the CM9. What is their appeal over Glock, M&P, Sig, Beretta, HK, etc.?

    The cm9's advantage is obvious - $200. That's why I bought it...

    Well, there is usually a reason products cost differently, especially when made by the same company. But for someone who knows little about the Kahr, the advantages aren't quite so obvious.

    The difference between the CM9 & the PM9 is more attractive machine work on the slide (fancier) and the barrel on the PM9 has polygonal rifling instead of traditional rifling... and that's it. Same trigger, lower and sights. You save $200 to $230 by forgoing polygonal rifling and going with a simpler looking slide.

    That nailed it. Why on earth one would need polygonal rifling in a gun intended to be used within 20' is totally beyond me. Same issues with sights at close range. My slide works perfectly. Why should I pay $200 more?

    Interesting. Begs the question is polygonal rifling is worth it.

    I would tend to agree. For a close range pistol, why? Thanks for the info!
