The Kahr CW45 is an incredible big bore concealed carry. It is a small size powerhouse. The recoil is manageable due to the strong spring around the steel guide rod. However in order to shoot it well one must hold on tight. The long ultra smooth trigger pull eliminates any need for an external safety. The gun is also very accurate if you do your part. If you ever had the unfortunate experience to draw down on a bad guy it’s over. The barrel of a 45 looks like a sewer pipe. If you want to carry big yet small the CW45 is the right gun.
Full power in a small handgun. A dream to carry. Super smooth trigger pull, 100 percent reliable, very accurate, and it fits in my hand perfect . One of the few guns I won't part with.
Powerful, yet compact firearm. Perfect for defending your family. I had night sights and a Pachmayr grip sleeve installed for $100. Always carry a spare magazine. I prefer the 7 round mags for reloads. As a cop I carried a 5 shot .38 Spl loaded with dept. ammo (LSWC, standard pressure rounds) My Kahr CW45 is superb for retirement carry and far superior to my Anti-crime firepower.
