The Kahr CW40 Review

The Kahr CW40 is an outstanding choice for concealed carry with its compact size & lightweight. It fits perfectly well in the palm of an average sized hand. However, it might be uncomfortable if anyone has large hands, but this should be no reason for complaint because it is built to be a concealed carry handgun.

The dimensions of Kahr CW40 add a length of 6.36 inches, height approx to 4.62 inches, and just about 0.94 inches in slide width. It only weighs approximately 16.8 ounces with an additional 1.9 ounce of a magazine. The exterior is fabricated applying a black polymer, & the slide is made of matte stainless steel providing a good contrast.

The grip is slightly aggressive with the use of the textured polymer, allowing a good fit. The standard magazine begins with a lip that holds your hand in place. Otherwise, there is also a choice of picking up an extended kahr cw40 magazine if you require more handle to hold onto.

Kahr CW40 holds the reputation of its brand by making it a more affordable part. This is done by focusing more on the regular special features preferably than add-ons. Kahr CW40 consists of a groove-rifled barrel instead of a polygonal rifle barrel in previous outcomes. The slide does not require high-tech machining operations. It covers of simple engraved markings on the sides. A more cost-effective replacement includes a metal-injection-molded slide stop from the earlier machined slide stop lever.

The muzzle of Kahr CW40 Holster makes holstering the gun convenient. Improvements that make it a better-concealed carry include the angled and rounded surface of the covering. The roughness on the stern of the slide because of the serrations of the surface, provide a very firm grip. The sights are convenient to see with the fixed front & rear sights. The rear sight can more be drifted to one side, or the other, for windage corrections. The Kahr CW40 is best in creating tremendous chamber pressure with its secured breech handgun-firing cartridge. However, it still holds a capacity of 6+1 rounds.

Although seeing at the size of the Kahr CW40, anyone might think that the recoil is going to be severe, it surprises the owner with its efficient shooting & minimal recoil. This owes to its rugged slide-to-frame invention & a reinforced recoil assembly. The recoil spring is stiff, and presents useful power, wrapping around the guide rod, made of stainless steel as exposed to the use of plastic rods in some guns.

Kahr CW40 incorporates the firing pin safety lock characteristic without any extra magazine or external aids for security. The magazine release button is conveniently set at the intersection where the trigger guard meets the frame on the right side. The magazines are well-constructed practicing stainless iron tube & which is followed by a polymer base & follower.

If you are watching for an, intelligently designed economical handgun for concealed carry without settling on its performance, Kahr CW40 is your best bet!
