    I went to my gun shop today in pursuit of a nice .45 ACP. I looked at 1911's, Glock model 36, and the Kahr CW45. I liked the single stack mag on the Kahr, the way it sat in my hand, and the light weight. So I went with the Kahr CW45. When I got home I put 25 rounds through it (Blazer 230gr FMJ). No problems and was very accurate. I did not have time to shoot more. So, I sat down on the computer tonight only to find negative reviews on this weapon. Kind of makes me worry.

    Some positive feedback and encouragement would be highly appreciated...

    Thanks!

    I had a P45 ran great while I had it, sold it to a friend and no problems that I have heard of.

    Some have issues, some don't. Sounds like you got a good one so far!

    I've been very happy with the weapon (except for the occasional ejected case in the forehead :shocked:)

    Thanks for the feedback! I am going to visit the range tomorrow and feed it 200 rounds.

    Here is my Kahr story having to do with my P45 and Kahr's Customer service.

    I took my Kahr P45 to the range for the first time hoping to have a good range session, it did not happen. On my 49th rd, something smacked me in the forehead. After clearing the gun I looked around on the ground and found a spring and pin. After looking at the book I got with the gun, I found it to be the extractor pin and spring, could not find the extractor.

    I contacted Kahr on Monday and they told be to send it back and they would cover it. Sent in in on Wed. and I got it back on the following Mon. They replaced the whole slide, keeping my barrel, upgraded the mag release and installed a new set of night sights, I sent mine in with standard sites.

    Since I got it back I have put 700 more rds thur it with NO problems, it is a very nice and Accurate shooting gun, it has become my EDC.

    I have to say that their Customer service was EXCELLENT in my case, and that experience led me to purchase another Kahr, a PM9. I have put over 600 rds thru it, this has replaced my Keltec P3AT as my pocket gun..

    Was very accurate, no failures, but ah? Just could not connect with it. I went back to Glock. (Glock 36)

    CW45 has conventional rifiling; P45 has polygonal rifiling. If I had to do it over again, I wouldn't have gotten the P45; I would buy the CW. Reason: you can shoot lead out of the CW while the P is saddled with a singular diet of FMJs.

    That said, my P45 has been perfect. No problems in 600+ rounds. There's no reason that a CW wouldn't be the same.

    Before someone says, "Buy a CW barrel and put it in the P". I thought of that, called the factory only to hear the techie say, "It almost fits".
