Kahr Arms has a new sub compact 9mm pistol coming out this March dubbed the CM9. This new concealed carry from Kahr is based on their PM9 and holds the exact same dimensions of its predecessor. The CM9 has a 3″ barrel, and overall length of 5.3″ and a height of 4 inches. It weighs only 14 ounces unloaded, has a 6+1 capacity, and at the top of the slide, the new Kahr CM9 measures less than an inch, making it easily concealable.
The main difference between the Kahr CM9 and PM9 is that the Kahr CM9 doesn’t feature match grade parts, translating into a less expensive handgun. Kahr‘s CM9 features a regular rifled barrel rather than the match grade polygonal barrel on the PM series, the slide stop lever is metal-injected-molded instead of machined, simple engraving markings unlike the roll markings on the PM9, and finally the CM9 has a pinned front sight whereas the PM9 features a drift adjustable front sight. Basically, the CM9 is a little less refined, and its markings aren’t as pretty, but those subsitutions bring the price down from $786 for the PM, to $565 for the new Kahr CM9. The Kahr CM9 will start shipping March 20th.
