- Budget friendly
- Good for concealed carry
- Two-tone design
- Feels a bit clunky
- Sharp edges
It feels great in hand, although we prefer a bit more aggressive grip. The slide starts off a little stiff…as does the magazine release…so make sure you can confidently rack it. And because it’s the more budget of Kahr’s offerings, there are some sharp corners in the ejection port and the front of the slide and some machining marks on the barrel. But again, as a budget 9mm for concealed carry, you have to expect some concessions. Overall, if you’re looking for a concealable single-stack 9mm at a great price, you can’t go wrong with the CW9.
The Kahr CW9 is a budget 9mm with a single-stack design. It boasts an overall length of 5.9 inches with a barrel length of 3.565 inches. It stands at 4.5 inches tall and weighs 15.8 ounces. Its trigger is a DAO (double-action only) style, so be prepared for that.
