Kahr® Announces Gen2 Premium Series Pistols

April 6, 2015

Pomona, NY – There was quite a buzz at the 2015 SHOT Show in Las Vegas in January, and a lot of that excitement was due to the unveiling of the new Gen2 Kahr Premium Series pistols. A year ago, the engineers at Kahr took a look at their existing premium line and decided to start with the basics, but then re-engineered it to give it a refreshing new look. The result is a new design that is sleeker and more tactical in appearance than their existing premium models.

The new Gen2 Premium pistols speak to the quality, accuracy and 100% made in the USA product that has always been Kahr’s mission. With even tighter tolerances and so many upgrades, it truly is the second generation of Kahr pistols. Some of the added value features of the new Gen2 Premium series include:

  • shortened trigger stroke allowing for quicker firing rates – 30% shorter than premium model
  • integrated trigger safety
  • accessory rail for lasers and lights
  • front slide serrations on 5” and 6” barrel models
  • 6” compensated barrel model
  • Leupold® Deltapoint™ Red Dot mount (5” barrel models) with tall target sights
  • Leupold® Deltapoint™ Red Dot optic included with 6” barrel models
  • TRUGLO® TFX™ Tritium/Fiber-Optic Day/Night sights standard on 3.5” and 4” barrel models
  • Safe-Cam striker-fired action
  • double recoil spring system for reduced felt recoil
  • redesigned magazine base and grip for a sleeker look
  • slide machined from the highest quality of stainless steel available for firearms
  • erial tag on grip frame
  • ergonomic single stack grip frame fits most hand sizes from small to large
  • ships with 3 magazines and a lockable, hard, polymer case

The Gen2 Premium pistols will be offered in a total of 12 models, four barrel lengths and three calibers including 9mm, .40 S&W, and .45 ACP. MSRP on the new series will range from $976 to $1668 and will be available in the 9mm and .45 ACP in Fall 2015 and the .40 S&W in February 2016.

For a look at the exciting new Gen2 Premium pistols, check us out in booth #2049 at the NRA Annual Meeting in Nashville April 10-12, 2015. Go to www.youtube.com/user/KahrArms/videos to see several of the Kahr Gen2 Premium pistols in action.

Kahr® Firearms Group Still Playing Landlord to Black Bear Family

March 26, 2015

Pomona, NY – Last year, as things were just beginning to show signs of spring, Kahr Firearms Group stumbled across a bear den on their newly acquired 620-acre parcel of land. The den was home to a very underweight sow and one cub. That bear den was located just 400 yards from where the construction crew was about to begin with the excavation for the new Kahr Firearms Group offices in Pike County, Pennsylvania. The bear was tagged with a radio collar, tests were drawn on the bears, and they were returned to their den.

Now, it is one year later and the Pennsylvania Game Commission once again reached out to Kahr Firearms Group to gain permission to check on the status of the sow and her cub. Using tracking devices, they located the sow in a new den, just a little farther away from the ongoing construction site. Kahr is happy to report that this year, the sow is far healthier and she has expanded her family to 4 cubs. Unfortunately, there was no luck in locating the cub from last year. Game Officers believe that the cub from 2014 did not survive.

“The Pennsylvania Game Commission ran new tests on the sow and we were pleased to hear that Mama and her entire family were healthy after enduring the long, hard winter,” said Justin Moon, CEO of Kahr Firearms Group. “In 2013, when we purchased this land in Pike County, PA, one of the most appealing aspects was the vast wilderness it provided. We appreciate and respect that it is home to bears, coyotes, small game, and birds and hope that they all stick around when we move into our new headquarters in a couple months.”

The new Kahr Firearms Group corporate headquarters is expected to be finished in May of this year. Once the move is completed, they will close down all operations in New York. Their manufacturing plants in Pillager, Minnesota and Worcester, Massachusetts will remain in operation indefinitely.
