    It kills me to sell this, but I've decided that 9mm is the round for me, so I am selling off my guns chambered in .40 S&W to raise money for their counterparts.

    This gun started off life as a regular Kahr K40 Covert, with a matte finish and standard black plastic grips. I spent somewhere between 20 and 40 hours removing machining marks, sanding and polishing so that the finish would be nearly mirror-perfect. I had the factory standard sights removed so that I could get the top of the slide nice and flat.

    I am proud of how the gun turned out, and call it my K40 Covert "Elite." Both the slide and frame have been polished, although there are a few machining marks that I was unable to remove in the frame. I also polished the slide-stop lever. Based on pictures that I have seen, the polish-job I have done to this pistol surpasses the Kahr Elite models. The addition of Kahr wood grips really makes for a classy look, and they feel better when gripping the gun.

    The gun currently has no sights installed on it, as I have been undecided about which night sights I wanted. I am including a set of factory sights should the new owner decide to install those. The recent purchase of a K40 with a faulty recoil spring had me swapping it out for the good one in this gun, so it will need an $8 spring from Kahr.

    3 magazines are included - one flush-mount with a Pearce grip extension, and two extended mags, although one of them fails to lock the slide back. The nub that pushes up the slide stop lever appears to be faulty (Kahr mags are like $50 a pop).

    This gun conceals exceptionally well, with the shorter grip of the MK series, but the longer sight radius of the K series. The plastic box and original paperwork are included as well. I would prefer to sell this locally (Twin Cities, MN), but may consider shipping it on the buyer's dime. I am asking $700 for this high-quality firearm. I would consider trades for a Kahr K9, Springfield EMP 9, or Sig Sauer P226 X5 or P226ST (I can add cash as necessary).

    I do my very best to accurately represent anything and everything I sell. I want prospective owners to have zero surprises when they receive it, and hope that they would find the item to be in better condition than represented; I prefer to err on the side of caution. I am happy to answer any questions and provide any pictures, just ask.

    Now, onto the good stuff...

    I am going to open this up for trades. Things I would be interested are included in my signature, as well as an AR-15 or various 9mm pistols (let me know what you've got, something may strike my fancy, I have begun getting into more target/competition type models).

    I am placing an order with Kahr for some parts tomorrow, and will order a new recoil spring for the new owner. Add your favorite night sights and you're good to go :)

    What a deal... wish I had seen this sooner. Just bought a P40 Covert, but I like the steel frame models more. This would have been perfect.

    I just ordered a new recoil spring, should be here in a day or so. Add the sights of your choice and you are good to go!

    Would also be very interested in a complete AR-15.
