Karhr 9mm: Take this new Kahr for a test drive!
Whenever a gun company announces that any new model of handgun has been designated legal to sell in California, it is newsworthy. Kahr Arms is announcing three models recently have been designated as okay to sell in the Golden State.

That’s why I was particularly interested when Sheryl Gallup sent me the info and images about these three new models being available. Sheryl and I have been bouncing around the industry probably longer than she might want to admit. Heck, we worked for the same outfit years back. Now she puts out the word for Kahr, and does it well.

THE KAHR CW9093N features a stainless steel slide and a black polymer frame.


“Kahr Arms is happy to announce that three of their popular CW9 9mm models are now California legal,” the company reported. “These models include the CW9 in a Black Carbon Fiber frame, standard CW9 with front night sight and the very popular Cerakote Burnt Bronze.”


The three CW9 models all feature a 3.6-inch barrel with conventional rifling, an overall length of 5.9 inches, and a height of 4.5 inches and each pistol weighs just 15.8 ounces. All three models offer a trigger cocking DAO, lock-breach, “Browning-type” recoil lug, and a passive striker block with no magazine disconnect. Capacity is 7+1.


The CW9093BCF is one of Kahr’s newest finishes in a classic Black Carbon Fiber print. This textured weave provides a 3-D dimensional appearance to the 9mm while also providing a textured grip that has a tacky feel in the hand. MSRP on the CW9093BCF is $495.

The CW9093N features a stainless steel slide and a black polymer frame. It also has a drift adjustable white bar-dot combat rear sight and a pinned-in polymer front night sight. MSRP on this model is $495.


Last is the CW9093BB. The Cerakote® Burnt Bronze has been a popular finish for Kahr Firearms Group in both the Kahr and Magnum Research product lines. The MSRP on this model is $482 and is now available for California gun dealers to buy from authorized Kahr Firearms Group wholesalers.


One interesting thing about all three of the models now available in California is that they are sized for concealed carry. This doesn’t mean that only concealed carry makes sense for that size of handgun, but in this instance, rather seems to indicate that the market in California prefers such size pistols.

With their polymer frames and other features, these definitely fall into the MP (Modern Pistol) category. And it is hard to go wrong with the 9mmP.


Overall, what this means to me is that these are pistols that will fit a wide variety of hand sizes, while shooting a cartridge that can be handled by a wide variety of shooters with a wide range of experience. Generally, whenever a particular handgun answers all of those considerations, it does well.


The Kahr Firearms Group continues to expand its presence in the marketplace. They also make a number of other brands like Auto-Ordnance (Tommy gun) and Magnum Research.


For more information about these three models, go to www.kahr.com or check a local gun shop.
