    Looking for some help on a Kahr K40 / possible purchase

    ARMSLIST - For Sale: Kahr K40 with upgrades

    Don't know if the link posted correctly or not, but it's a s/s K40, pau ferro grips, some cleaning & ammo 'extras', 2 barrels (1 ported), box, papers, 2 mags (a 6rounder & a 7 rounder), ect...

    I don't know anything about the Kahr's, except they look good (always helps) and they are d/a only. This one looks to be in real good shape, but I haven't seen it in person (yet).

    He was asking $650.00, face to face, has since dropped to $615.00. Most of the on-line auctions have them from $450.00 - $600.00, so with the 2 barrels & fancy grips, this might not be too bad a deal.

    I like the all metal aspect, 40 S&W works for me, just looking for some input, either positive or negative to guide me.

    Thanks in advance,

    ronin

    I have a K-9 and a K-40. They are good quality, accurate pistols. The downside for me is that all Kahrs are built for small to medium sized hands, and mine aren't. The trigger reach, combined with the way the trigger hinges, makes them ideal for people whose hands are small enough to take advantage of that feature, but make them more difficult for people with larger hands or longer fingers.

    I have owned eleven Kahrs and still own five, one of which is a K40 Elite '98 (all Elite series are stainless steel). It is a fine gun and a good one for closer/deeper concealment. It is a little sensitive to some .40S&W defensive ammo* but has fired everything I have put through it. I replaced the stock hard rubber grips with the smooth wood so it works better with a felt-lined jacket and rugby shirts.

    I can offer more information if you like.


    * When unloading and removing a Federal HST round from the chamber, you have to really make sure the slide is fully retracted to free that round up so it will drop out of the gun.

    I have an MK40 all stainless. Nice well made gun, no issues. SouthernBoy is correct you really do have to rack that slide to manually eject a round. However, it never effected the gun from functioning.

    SB: I had tried to send you a couple of PM's since you seem to know your way around the Kahr's...your PM box is full and would not accept my PM's, fyi...

    This was as of last night & thanks to all for their insight and experience.

    Sorry there. Our inboxes are not allowed much storage space. I just cleaned mine out so you can send at your pleasure.
