Kahr® Arms Partners with Davidson’s, Inc. to Offer Purple Pistols


Model: CW9093PRDAV

Model: CW3833PRDAV

July 3, 2014

Pomona, NY – Kahr Arms is once again brightening up their product line by introducing another new color; purple. Following the success of their Cobalt Blue Kahr CW9, Black and Orange Auto Ordnance 1911, Burnt Bronze Desert Eagle and the popular Kahr PM9 in Robin Eggshell Blue, Kahr Firearms Group has partnered this time with Davidson’s, Inc., one of the largest and most progressive firearms wholesalers in America, to introduce a purple version in either the CW9 or CW380.

Both models feature the same great features as the standard model, but to meet the demands of shooters who are looking for something a little more different and a whole lot sexier, they decided to add the purple polymer frame to two of their most popular pistols.

The first offering in the purple pistol product line is the CW9. The pistol features a 3.565” barrel with conventional rifling, and a 1-10 right-hand twist. The weight, height and width of this firearm make it perfect for concealed carry. It measures 4.5” in height, and 5.9” in overall length. Weight is just 15.8 oz. with an additional weight of 1.9 oz. to accommodate the magazine. The capacity is 7+1. The slide width is 0.90”. The CW9 features drift adjustable white bar-dot combat rear sight and pinned in polymer front sight. The purple color is a first time offering for the CW9.

Also offered in purple, is the CW380. Like the CW9, this pistol is also packed with features but in a smaller frame. The CW380 measures just 4.96” in overall length, height is 3.9” and it weighs just 10.2 oz. with an additional magazine weight of 1.3 oz. and the slide width is 0.75”. The CW380 has a capacity of 6+1. Like the CW9, the CW380 also features drift adjustable white bar-dot combat rear sight and pinned in polymer front sight.

The lighter, smaller and thinner CW9 and CW380 make it a popular choice for concealed carry but also for those shooters who prefer a comfortable grip with easy concealment and reliable accuracy and stopping power.

The MSRP on the purple CW9093PRDAV is just $449.00 and the MSRP on the CW3833PRDAV is $419, and both pistols are being sold exclusively through Davidson’s. Dealers can purchase from Davidson’s at www.davidsonsinc.com, and consumers can purchase on Gallery of Guns at www.galleryofguns.com. The purple CW9 will be available beginning in July and the purple CW380 will be available sometime in August.

Kahr® Introduces the CT9 and at Special Introductory Price


Model: CT9093

June 26, 2014

Pomona, NY – Kahr introduces their newest full-frame value-priced full frame firearm; the 9mm CT9. Earlier this year Kahr introduced the CT40 and CT45, and with the addition of the CT9, it completes their value-priced CT Series.

For decades, Kahr has offered gun enthusiasts the option of both compact and full-frame firearms. Their popular TP9, TP40 and TP45 have become legendary, but as the economy continues to take a hit, the demand for more affordable firearms has become a call to duty. Kahr took the best features of their TP-series and with ingenuity and their meticulous dedication to detail and quality, they developed the CT Series.

The CT9 features a full-size polymer frame with a matte stainless steel slide and drift-adjustable white bar-dot sight configuration. Features of the CT9093 include a 3.95” conventional rifling barrel length, overall length of 6.5”, height of 5.08” and a slide width of .90”. It weighs just 20.6 oz. with the magazine, making it very slim, lightweight and perfect for concealed carry. The pistol comes standard with one 8 rd. magazine, but, if you purchase now you can also qualify for one free magazine. The downloadable free magazine coupon can be obtained by visiting the Kahr website. The MSRP on the CT9093 is being offered at the introductory rate of $369 but only for a limited time. That is a savings of $80.

In the last four years, Kahr has dramatically improved their USA manufacturing and production processes making it possible to pass along the savings to consumers with this price breakthrough. Kahr is currently the only firearms manufacturer to offer this level of technology and innovation at this level of value.

Like all Kahr pistols, the CT4043, CT4543, and the new CT9093 feature Kahr’s seven patents and industry-leading slim and clean single stack design for concealed carry and home defense.

Kahr® Firearms Group Breaks New Ground

June 2, 2014

Pomona, NY – A crowd of over 180 people shared in the celebration on Thursday, May 29th of the official ground-breaking ceremony of the Kahr Firearms Group new headquarters in Blooming Grove Township of Pike County Pennsylvania located in the Pocono region of the state. Justin Moon, CEO, Kahr Firearms Group welcomed Pennsylvania Lt. Governor Jim Cawley to the event which also included a number of key state officials.

Early last year, Kahr made the key decision to move the headquarters out of New York and move to the more gun-friendly state of Pennsylvania. The purchase included 620 acres of prime commercial real estate from the Pike County Industrial Park Development Group. The ground-breaking ceremony christens the first step in the multi-phased relocation. The corporate offices and the research and development departments will be the first to be relocated. When the second phase commences, manufacturing operations will be expanded to the Pike County location to meet the increasing manufacturing demands for Kahr Firearms Group products.

“We are just a few months into the initial construction phase of our new corporate headquarters, and already the support we are receiving from the Pike County Industrial Park Development Group, the local community, and even Governor Corbett has been extremely welcoming,” stated VP of Marketing and Sales, Frank Harris. “It clearly demonstrates how eager the state of Pennsylvania is to bring job opportunities to the citizens of the state, while also supporting our right to manufacture firearms.”

The move to Pennsylvania will make for a far more cohesive relationship between the firearms manufacturer and the State than what they have experienced in New York. As Kahr Firearms Group expands over the next few years, they will reach out to the community with the addition of employment opportunities.

ShootingTheBull410: GLOCK 42 vs. Kahr PM9. Yes, the PM9

The Truth About Guns

This is the third part of a three-part series exploring the ballistic performance of the new GLOCK 42. In this segment, I’m comparing the performance of the G42 against a comparably-sized pocket 9mm pistol, the Kahr PM9. Why? Isn’t it a tad silly to compare a .380 against a 9mm? Yes, yes it is. The 9mm is and always has been a significantly more powerful cartridge. So much so, that I consider the .380's main benefit to be the fact that it provides the opportunity for firearms to be made smaller, lighter, and more-concealable. Given that context . . .

Wild Things in Wild Places: Kahr® Firearms Group Welcomes new Tenant in PA


Pomona, NY – It is the type of story that you just don't hear very often. As land development eats away at wildlife habitat, chasing animals away from areas they consider to be home, one company is sharing their new headquarters property with the existing wildlife.

At the end of March, as Kahr Firearms Group was breaking ground on their new headquarters in Pike County, Pennsylvania, it was discovered that the 620 acre parcel was home to a female black bear and her cub. The bear den was located just 400 yards from where the crew was about to begin with the excavation for the new Kahr Firearms Group offices.

The construction crew notified Kahr, and the company immediately reached out to the Pennsylvania Game Commission for some assistance. When the game wardens arrived, they sedated the sow in order to exam her, check her vital statistics, and then tag her with a tracking collar. Only one cub was in the den and the game wardens determined that based on the size of the cub and the weight of the sow, that the bear likely had some health issues during hibernation. When the examination was complete, the bear cub and the sow were determined to be healthy and the game warden turned to Kahr Firearms Group owner, Justin Moon, and asked if he wanted the bears removed. “It was an easy decision for me. I felt that the bear and her cub had survived a very harsh winter and the den was their home. I strongly believe that man can cohesively share habitat with animals, so I felt the most respectful decision was to share the property with the bear and her cub.”

The sow and her cub were returned to the den and the decision to stay or move on was left to the 4-legged tenant on whether or not she and her cub want to stay. Since then, the crew has no additional sightings of the bears, but, everyone is hoping that they stick around and enjoy their new neighbors.

Don’t you love a story with a happy ending?

The second custom offering exclusively sold through Cabela's is a Kahr PM9 in a bright and sexy Robin Eggshell Blue polymer frame.

The finger rest extension on the 6 round magazine is done in a Cerakote coating to match the color of the polymer frame. The slide is machined from a solid billet of tough 420 stainless steel and has an attractive matte finish. The PM9 features a 3" polygonal rifled barrel and has an overall length of 5.3", 4.0" in height, and weighs just 14 oz. with an empty magazine.

Kahr wants other firearms businesses to come to Pike County

April 12, 2014 | By Beth Brelje | The Pocono Record

Ground-breaking in Pike County for the new corporate headquarters of Kahr Firearms Group is likely in May, and a long-range plan for more gun companies is taking shape.

The gun manufacturer bought the long-empty 600-acre Pike County Business Park on Well Road in Blooming Grove for $2 million last year and will move its entire New York operation out of that state to escape what it describes as an unfriendly gun climate there.

“We would like to have a firearms-friendly business park. If other companies want to leave states with more restrictive gun laws, such as Massachusetts, Connecticut and New York, this is a great place,” company spokesman Frank Harris said. “We have lots available, and we would put up buildings. Pike County is a great place with a gun-friendly environment, right off Interstate 84.”

Kahr® Partners with Lew Horton Distributing to Introduce Special Edition CW9 Series

March 21, 2014

Pomona, NY – Kahr Firearms Group has partnered with renowned firearms distributor, Lew Horton, to offer three special edition custom designs for the popular Kahr CW9.

The first custom option for the CW9 is the Kahr CW9093CSBL in a PVD electric cobalt blue. The black polymer frame complements the PVD cobalt blue slide, trigger, slide stop lever and slide back plate. The durable finish makes it perfect for everyday carry, or for collectors. MSRP is $558.00.

Option two is the Kahr CW9093CSPU, patriotic “All American” model which features engraving on the left side of the slide that says “All American”. The right side of the slide provides an engraved field of American flag stars. The top rear of the slide features an engraved pin-up girl posing in front of an American flag, reminiscent of the WWII era. MSRP is $613.00.

The last in the special edition CW9 series is the Molon Labe, model number CW9093CSML. This model is featured with a blackened stainless steel slide and enriched with 24kt gold engravings. The slide features 3 engraved features, including a polished Spartan Lambda Shield on the top rear of the slide, and a Spartan helmet on the right side of the slide. Engraved on the left side of the slide is the Latin text, “MOΛΩN ΛABE” which translates to “Come and take them”. This Latin phrase stems from King Leonidas’ response to the Persian Army’s demand that the Spartans surrender their weapons. MSRP is $603.00.

Due to the collector value of the 3 special edition pistol designs in the CW9 series, the production run is limited to only 200 of each model. Availability on the 3 special edition models will begin in early 2014.

The CW9 is one of Kahr’s most popular models due to its shooting comfort, and smaller, thinner, lighter frame making it perfect for concealed carry. It has an overall length of 5.9”, height of 4.5” and weighs just 15.8 ounces. The barrel length is 3.565”. The sights are drift adjustable, bar-dot combat rear sight, and pinned in polymer front sight. Load capacity is 7+1. The CW9 ships with one magazine.

Kahr® Partners with Spyderco® to Introduce the Kahr Delica4

January 6, 2014


Kahr Spyderco Delica4

Pomona, NY – Kahr Firearms Group is proud to introduce the Kahr Spyderco Delica4, a distinctive variation of one of Spyderco's most popular folding knives available exclusively through Kahr.

Created by self-defense authority Michael Janich, the Kahr signature Delica4 offers Kahr its own unique design by combining a full-length handle with a compact 2.5" blade. The shorter blade makes it legal in jurisdictions with strict blade-length limitations without sacrificing leverage, control, or cutting power.

The Kahr Delica4 features a stonewashed VG-10 stainless steel blade with a smooth thumb ramp. The sturdy back lock mechanism locks the blade in place when open, and includes a Boye Dent relief cut to prevent unintentional lock release. The Trademark Round Hole™ found on all Spyderco blades ensures quick, positive, one-handed opening. Other features include the Bi-Directional Textured™ handle scales injection molded from fiberglass-reinforced nylon and skeletonized stainless steel liners that reduce the overall weight of the knife to just 2.5 ounces.

The perfect companion to Kahr's compact pistols, the Kahr Delica4 is also designed to maximize its concealment properties. It is offered in three discreet handle colors — black, khaki, and denim-blue — to blend discreetly with common pant colors. In addition, the blade, four-position pocket clip, and all other hardware feature a non-reflective stonewashed finish.

The Kahr Spyderco Delica4 is available through Kahr Arms at www.kahr.com and select Kahr dealers and distributors. The MSRP is $99.
