This handgun has performed well for me. I do not think it recoils that much and is very accurate out of the box. Size and power are perfect for CC. Kahr makes excellent products. Buds was great as usual.

This pistol was not reliable for me. Frequent stoppages with multiple type of ammunition. Sent to KAHR for warranty work, came back, still unreliable. Could not recommend.

I've put about 250 rounds through this pistol so I feel pretty comfortable reviewing it now. Anybody looking at this pistol obviously wants a very small gun with a big punch and the CM40 definitely delivers. The gun was delivered quickly (thanks Buds) and arrived at my FFL in perfect condition with a light layer of oil. Initial cleaning was fairly painless but field-stripping was a bit of a pain. I'd watched some YouTube videos and was familiar with the process but I had a really difficult time removing the slide stop lever. I had the notches aligned and could feel it moving but it was just so tight I eventually had to tap it with a punch and hammer to get it completely removed. I've done it several times now and have the process down but Kahr, if you're listening, that's definitely something that needs to be improved. My first range session with the single included 5-rnd mag was flawless and I really mean flawless. I shot about 150 rounds (mixed hollow point and FMJ, Precision One ammo) and I didn't have a single issue. I was REALLY blown away by the accuracy. At 7 yards, I was easily shooting 3 or 4 inch groups (many of them smaller than that). The sights are great and I really like the single slot on the back sight. This is my first pistol with that type and sight and I like it so much I'm thinking about changing some of my other pistols. The trigger pull is definitely long but it breaks clean and has very little over-travel. My biggest gripe with the gun is the reset length. It's long. I mean really long. It seems like you almost have to let the trigger back out completely before it resets. I realize this is a CC weapon with no manual safety and I can deal with the long pull but why Kahr felt the need to engineer such a long reset is beyond me. It's not a deal-breaker (hey, this isn't a race gun) but it's definitely something you have to get accustomed to. Recoil is snappy but manageable. I'm not going to lie though... First time out, I shot about 150 rounds and was sort of dreading the last couple of magazines. To be so small, the gun feels good in my average-sized hand but I did end up getting a Hogue Handall Jr. and it really improved the overall feel and definitely helped with recoil. This is my first Kahr and overall, I'm really impressed with this little pistol. The price was great and with a DeSantis pocket holster, it makes for a perfect warm-weather CC pistol or an excellent backup gun. If you're in the market for a larger caliber "micro" pistol, you should definitely give this one a look.

The gun itself arrived in perfect condition,flawless!!!,a true pocket rocket.Took it to the range ,after 50 rounds the only issue being a long trigger pull that I'm sure I'll get used to.Dont get me wrong it's not as much of a pleasure to shoot as my XD40 but all in all I'd recommend this pistol.

I bought this pistol from Bud's two years ago and am very impressed with it. It was deemed my official Summer ccw to replace my g27 after i gave it a chance to prove it's reliability and function to me. Kahr reccomends a 200 round break in period. 3rd mag of it's life i had one FTF, immediately panicked thinking i had bought a lemon for it to have jammed so soon but kept in mind that she was only brand new. By now i have 700 or so rounds thru it due to semi routine practice with no hiccups since that one jam, and it'll shoot whatever rounds i feed it! Best trigger in my gun collection, love the sights, suuuuper thin for IWB, height and length are juust smaller than my open hand. I put a Hogue Handall Jr slip on grip($10) on it which i highly reccomend, especially if you, like me, do not carry with the extended mags or pinky extensions. I have no problem keeping my grip or managing recoil at all while shooting. If you're a recoil whiner or you're buying for a lady, get the 9mm version. If you're a man, get this one. The recoil is by no means light but neither is it at all unbearable. I've gotten pretty good at not letting it jump around in double taps/rapid fire. ALSO this gun was listed in this site for $405 when i bought it! For the price their asking now you might as well get em while the gettin's good
