I am surprised that I don't really hear about these little Kahrs, as this is on of the only true pocket .40s that I am aware of. Make no mistake, this is a true pocket gun- I carry this pistol exclusively in my right front pocket with a Blackhawk! #3 in-the-pocket holster. It will print a little if you have small pockets, but even then, it is not obvious that it is a gun at all. While this gun is a pretty solid piece of metal and polymer, it does not feel particularly heavy in my pocket, and I soon forget about it after putting it in. As for the gun itself, it comes from the factory very oily and very tight. Took it to the range after doing nothing other than wiping the excess oil off the outside of the slide. I only had 60 rounds of FMJ and HP at the time, but it fed and fired all with absolutely no hiccups of any kind. Groupings were average at about 7 yards, but all within the target silhouette, and I attribute this more to my being unfamiliar with the firearm than anything else. The CM40 has basic white dot straight-eight sights, which I find better for quick and accurate targeting over more traditional three dot sights. The pistol only comes with one flush 5 round mag, but I also had ordered an extended 7 round mag as well. While only my pinky hangs off when using the flush mag, the weapon is jumpy when held like this. When I used the extended mag and was able to get a full grip, I had no problem keeping a hold of it at all. Admittedly, I was a little apprehensive about what the recoil was going to be like while I waited for the gun to arrive. This is a very small gun that shoots a fairly large round- I had done a little research online into the matter, but really was not able to find any definitive information. However, I was very pleasantly surprised upon taking it to the range. Recoil is very manageable, and while it is certainly more than my Sig P938, it has no painful snap or kick like my Polish P-64, XDS .45, or Ruger LCR .357. It is more like a firm shove, and if the range time I've had thus far is any indicator, I wouldn't have any problem putting hundreds of rounds through this at a time. That being said, it may be a little much for someone with small hands or little shooting experience. All in all, I am very pleased with this particular weapon, and would certainly recommend it, with its combination of reliability, power, concealability, and value. That being said, there was one quibble about this transaction. Simply put, Bud's took forever to get it to me. The last gun I ordered a little over a month ago took five days from purchase to arrival. This gun took 10 days just to ship. The same thing happened to my brother who ordered a gun a few weeks ago. Both of them were in .40. It seems to me that Bud's takes longer to complete these transactions because it is not as popular a caliber. So be forewarned if you are looking into this one or other .40 guns on this site.

Bought this gun due to its small size and weight. Even though I have other subcompact guns for conceal carry purposes (Glock 27 and Taurus PT24/7 G2 compact 45 ACP) I would find myself attracted to my Taurus mini PT738 and carry it almost on daily basis. Though my PT738 is very comfortable I was always conscious about the small caliber I was carrying for self defense. However, I came across Kahr CM models and really like what they offered. I believe the Kahr CM40 is a small as it gets with a "high" caliber option to carry in pocket. This gun fits in my back pocket and it is very light. At the range and on my first 10 rounds I shot below bulls eye, however, I was able to hit bulls eye or closer on the following shots. I shot only about 30 rounds and my accuracy improved on my last rounds. I feel that accuracy will improved as I practice more with this little handgun. Recoil in gun is not that bad, I was expecting a worst experience, however, it is manageable and with time I can improve my shooting techniques on gun. This gun is a keeper. I had no FTE or FTF in my short experience at the range and it has already become my favorite. I was hesitant to buy gun due to some of the reported problems to eject or feed, however, before taking it to the range I racked the slide about 300 times and left the gun with slide open for one day to break in the gun. This is my first Kahr and would highly recommend it. For $338 you are getting a high quality and reliable gun. Buy it!

Picked this up due to my experience with my Kahr PM-9 and CM-9 and both of them have been flawless for me. This new CM-40 is the same, great fit and finish and smooth right out of the box. Good gun, good price! As always Buds was great to deal with! AAA +++

The first 150ish rounds had some issues, but after that no major problems. The trigger brake does get slack (farther pull needed) if the weapon is dirty. It dose need cleaning after every 50 rounds. I believe this to be good for a CCW. The first six rounds is what matters to me. I carry IWB with no snags or magazine releases. The grip is small and short, but not hard to hold. Fuzz and dust does make it easily into every part of the weapon, so it gets blown out once a week. This Kahr is now my primary weapon - it is that good.

Buds was awesome as usual. I selected the e-check option, so it took longer to receive my firearm, but Buds topped it off by shipping next day air. Amazing customer service! Now to the Kahr CM40...Love this gun!! I've never owned a Kahr, but I've always liked them. The CM40 is perfection in a small package, top quality for the price point, and shoots like a dream with that sweet Kahr trigger. The gun was packed in oil as if Kahr planned on storing this gun for 50 years, but thats to be expected, and I appreciate a little extra oil. The gun was tight, with no slop between the frame and slide, but began to loosen a bit after shooting (this is a good thing). Easy to disassemble and reassemble if you know anything about how guns work, and feels great in the hand. I have semi-large hands and the frame still managed to give me a comfortable grip with my pinky finger just below the magazine plate. At the range the gun performed flawlessly. I've only put about 80 rounds through it so far, so I can't comment too much on reliability at this point, but I will update this review after the break-in period. I was skeptical at first because the only bad reviews I found on the CM40 were all relating to the magazine breaking followers because of the feed ramp being a hair too long. Kahr insists that this problem is rare, and I have not had any issues with this thus far. I have only heard great things about Kahr's customer service, so if this becomes an issue in the future Kahr should fix the problem. Over all I love the gun, and if you are looking for a slim, light, and fun to shoot concealed carry weapon or truck gun, than the CM40 is perfect. If you have any experience at all with handguns and how to hold them, than this little power house will only kick like a 9mm in your hands (my perspective anyway). Great price from Buds too, with a little haggling of course. Thank you Buds, I'll be back very soon!!
