My shooting buddy has the Solo he paid just under 700 for it. I have the CW9 I paid just under 400 for mine. I am very pleased with the CW9. I is a sound very nicely put together quality weapon that makes holes right in the last holes. It needed to be cleaned and have some rounds put down range but it is 100% reliable and a real keeper. easy to hide even with summer clothes and the recoil is very managable. The trigger took some getting used to because it is a bit long but it is true and consistanly the same.
My buddies Solo is beautiful to see and great to hold and shoots very nicely, I can shoot the CW9 more consistantly but that may not be the gun it may just be what I am used to. The Solo has a 1911 type saftey and the S/A trigger pull is shorter, smooth and steady. It is wider then the CW9 and looks like a more expensive weapon. The frame on the Solo is a sweet Aluminum fram The Kahr is a Polymer frame. I like the Aluminum frame a lot! I carry the CW often and shoot it regularily and have no regrets. Matt loves his Solo and is very happy he got it. I do not think he would trade it for any other weapon there is. His only bummer is that it is a conceal weapon and he rarely gets to show it to anyone. It is nice enough that you want too say check out this beauty!!!!! But he goes by the always carry never tell mantra..
