Can someone with experience tell me their opinion on the trigger pull of the Kahr line of pistols? I like how they feel in my hand and am looking to buy one for concealed carry at the end of the month but I don't know what the trigger is like.
I was a little concerned about the lengthy trigger-pull when I purchased my first Kahr (PM9). After firing quite a few rounds, however, I didn’t even notice it. It shot incredible well for such a small piece. I have found them to be a little finicky in the reliability department, but if you stick with the 9mm, you should be OK.
I agree with both of the replies above. The Kahr trigger pull is a little on the long side and so is the reset. Neither is unmanageable. If you purchase it and train with it you shouldn't have any problems adapting to the Kahr's trigger. My PM9 has been flawless since I purchased it, even through the break in period.
I played w/ one at the guns tore before - I prev had a Colt Pony - a similiarly long, slightly heavy pull. I think it's fine for CCW (especially given its size) - but not a whole lot of fun for long time range shooting.
Most of my handguns are either S&W revolvers or 1911s, but I've been looking for years for a DA-SA or DAO auto with a half-way decent trigger. Finally found one -- a Kahr CW-9. Feels very much like a revolver that is not completely broken in, but still has no rough edges and is not overly long.
The only real problem is it's a 9mm and if Kahr would scale the CW-9 up to .45ACP, but keep the trigger feel, I'd be the first in line.
I've had my PM9 for over a year. It shoots to POA and is quite accurate at 21 feet, which is my normal practice range for SD. It is easily as accurate as I shot my single action Ruger P90. I recommend it highly for its excellent DAO trigger pull.
