    Because he will turn it from ORDINARY to EXTRORDINARY!!



    I want to give a HUGE thank you to Jarod at HarshFirearms!!! Jarod is a master at firearms coatings. I took him my bland Kahr CM9 with matte stainless finish and this is what I got back!



    Color is Titanium Cerakote with matching slide release and trigger. First I am posting up some the pictures of the gun before, then some with just the slide refinished, then the whole gun done.


    Here are the pics:

    Before Pic

    Slide only coated pic

    and totally coated, slide, slide release, and trigger


    What do you guys think??




    I just updated these pics, the last ones really show the true color. This is what it looks like in person, more or less.

    Whatever makes you happy is what matters. But, since you asked for opinions, I am unimpressed, from the pics.

    If you're happy with it, thats all that matters. I personally don't really see much of a difference between the finishes. If I was going to get my slide coated, it would have to be a drastic change so its at least noticeable.

    To be honest the pics suck! even with an HD camera on my smartphone. It looks like a darker grey with a tint of copper color. Really cool in person, sorry I wish it could come out better. Sorry!

    That's why I don't mind asking for opinions, because they honestly don't upset me whatever way they come. It does look different in person, but in most ways it is similar to the original finish, but darker grey and somewhat copper colorer

    OP, were you taking the pics indoors with your phone's flash?

    Try using natural light (sunlight) and no flash. If you go outside make sure it's overcast because direct sun is too harsh.

    NICE GUN! I want a CM9 myself!

    Thanks for the tips! I am always looking for help when it comes to pictures. I am new to picture taking and need all the help I can get!


    Oh, and P.S. if you get the chance to get a Kahr CM9, do it! they are awesome, great pocket carry, just slightly larger than an LCP. Sweet trigger, accurate for such a small gun and It has been 100% Reliable. Fired 100 rounds yesterday and it was perfect! It didn't lock back on any of the mags and that made me curious, but after shooting 20 rounds of hollowpoint ammo I decided it was just the cheap target I was shooting that wouldn't make it lock back. Did it everytime with the HP rounds.

    No problem :thumbsup:

    Why do you think it wouldn't lock back with the cheap ammo? Very odd:dunno:

    I don't know, excellent question. I thought it odd as well. It functioned flawlessy with all the ammo as far ejecting, loading, ect. But it would only lock back when I used the hollowpoints.

    I first attributed it to the fact that the Cerakote made it a little tight to run, because these Kahrs are really, really tight tolerances right out of the box. But after shooting 120 rounds sunday I can only figure it was the cheaper ammo not working enough to catch the slide stop. but don't know for sure...

    Anyone have any thoughts on the issue?

    Never shot a Turtle, but I know Kahrs are very sweet, awesome little guns. But I understand, different strokes for different folks. :cool:

    Thanks TGG, I didn't take new pics outside, but I did take some new ones just now and turned of the flash with some better background lighting and better backdrop. These new pictures really show the color better, you will notice the slight copper tint to the grey. Tell me what you think of the new pics
