This is like the other 3 Kahrs I own. The only really negative thing about Kahrs budget level pistols is You have to fire 200 rounds through them before they become dependable. When You first start firing them they some times hic cup and either You get a ftl or the only other thing is I have had this last Kahr fire one or 2 rounds and the slide locks back. You bear with these problems and You find that they start losing the bad habits at about 130 rounds. From then on it was a great accurate gun for what it was designed to do. Be aware that this is a small gun and it shoots a pretty good size round and don't try to shoot one 200 times in one day. Your wrist will not be happy about it. I feel this is a great gun for concealed carry and very easy to hide. I feel the double action is lot safer for carrying with a round in the chamber..For the price You cant find a better value

This little .40 packs a wallop! Much more manageable with the addition of a Houge sleave. Very concealable. No issues with FMJ ammo. ! FTF with a Tactical round but not through the 200 round break-in. For you naysayers you should be doing that to get proficiency with you EDC anyway.

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.
