    I have been eyeing a CW45 for awhile. I really love my CM9, so easy to carry and shoot. So, yesterday I bought one at Sportsman's Warehouse for $369 plus tax. I am waiting for some extra mags, then I'll take it to the range and break it in. Pictures, it's a stock CW45, they all look alike, no changes here :cool:.

    I was told that it would fit in a Glock 9/40 cal. holster, and it does. My M-tac works perfectly. I also heard, you can use a Colt Officers model holster, haven't tried that out yet.

    Will update the thread once I bring it to the range.

    Let us know how it works out. I love my kahrs (cw40 & k9) but I've herd bad reviews on 45 models. Something about the small frame vs large caliber.

    Damn, they're getting cheaper. That's less than I paid for mine two years ago, and mine was a good deal at the time.

    Anyway, congrats. I'm sure you'll love it. Looking forward to a range report.

    OK, I got two extra mags, took 100 rds of WWB and headed to the range. All 100 rds without a hitch. The trigger is so sweet, and it's accurate. I'll put through another 100rds, then some JHP's, and I should be good to go to carry it.

    Anxious to hear how it does with JHPs. My doesn't like HSTs, but has no problem with anything else I've tried.

    My personal thoughts about SD ammo is the major brands, ie: Gold Dots, HST, Ranger Bonded and Talons, etc, are all good. I will shoot a sample of each, and use the one that is most accurate. Long story short, if a weapon doesn't like a certain round, then I won't use it. If it doesn't like JHP, then it goes back to the factory and let them fix the issue. Sometime this week, I'll get to the range and test out JHP's.

    Ok, another range day. I shot Federal American Eagle, Champions and Blaser steel case. All without a hitch. Then I ran DPX, Federal Hydro Shox and Ranger T-Series, again, all without a hitch. Clean it tomorrow and start carrying it.
     
  9. keep an eye on the slide lock spring and screw, mine had problems of loosening, after 4 or 5 times i used some loc-tite on the screw, but traded it off shortly after.
     
  10. by the way, i have had a CM9 for about 3 yrs and it has been flawless, i wear it anytime my g36 is too big.:cool:

    Good to know. I guess I can do some preventive maintenance on that screw. I really love carrying and shooting this weapon. The plan is to carry the CW45 in the fall and winter, and the CM9, in the spring and summer.

    Awesome, I have a CW9 and have been pondering the CW45 for that extra winter "thump." To the OP, which loads have you found the most accurate? And have you tried the Win PDX bonded? Read good things about that bullet.

    It's a nice strange, but haven't found anything it doesn't like. As I posted, I tried a variety of JHP and FMJ rounds, and very little difference in accuracy. I am carrying Ranger Talons in it now. I basically buy whatever is on sale in 50 round boxes from Ammo to Go. No, I really haven't tried the PDX, I did have a few extra rounds of DPX though. Not sure if they use the same bullet for their rounds.

    I just put on a rubberized Talon grip, really makes a difference in the feel of the weapon.

    Really like my CW45 - it's runs very smooth using the 6 round magazines. Sweet little pistol.

    The free 7 rounder I got during last year's promotion is worthless. It will not feed the 2nd round every time. :headscratch:

    i've heard about issues with the 7 round mag. Maybe contact Kahr, and see if they have a fix for you. They may even send you a replacement.
