You need to clean the gun before you shoot it. I had trouble removing the takedown pin. I resorted to tapping it out with a punch and hammer. The slide release spring is easy to damage. You need to replace the slide release spring so that the spring sits on top of the slide release. I damaged the spring before I even shot the pistol. When the spring is damaged, it shoots in one-shot mode. You have to release the slide after each shot if the slide release spring is not on top of the slide release. My first 200 rounds with the CW40 was basically in one-shot mode. I repaired the slide release spring. I then shot 50 rounds of Winchester white box from Walmart. The slide still locked open twice when the magazine was not yet empty. The CW40 also jammed two or three times when loading a new magazine. I am not a bad shot, but I often could not hit a 13"x13" target at 25 feet with my CW40. During the same shooting session, I was getting a 3" to 4" group with my Ruger SR9c. Maybe it was the CW40, maybe it was the ammo, but it wasn't me. In the manual for the pistol, they say the that you should provide resistance to the pistol, not act as a shock absorber. The gun seems to be better behaved when you hold it loosely. Why should I have to adjust my grip to shoot the CW40? Also, they CW40 seemed to behave better with a 165-gr. target round than a 180-gr. defensive round. Weird. I am an average size guy. This pistol almost seems too small in my hands. There's little room for my left thumb on the frame (I shoot righty). Again, I don't want to adjust my grip drastically to shoot the CW40. I am going to try different ammo. I am going to call Kahr to get some suggestions. However, I have no confidence in this weapon for concealed carry.

Great gun at this price...Some people write that they have troubles with chambering a round..The mag is stiff at first and I only had a problem when I had one chambered and a full mag (6+1) but it was a problem with the mag not feeding,until I ran about 300 rounds thru it...Gun performs awesome,just needs broke in... have been getting good groupings from 10-15 yards and have had decent results from 30-40 yards too...If your in the market for a consealed carry firearm,this is a great piece for the dollars you'll spend...And of course"Buds" is the place to buy from.....

Took 7 days to get it shipped, still worth it considering local price was $100 more. That said, the 200 round break in is a must, after 200 rounds it just works. The grip is a little rough on the skin, I put a Hogue Jr. sleeve on mine and it solves that problem. The grip is my only complaint and I typically put sleeves on my handguns anyway - so no big deal. The gun itself is awesome, accuracy is comparable to my Glock 26. I'm a big guy, 6 - 3, 300lbs and this gun fits in my hand perfectly.The magazines are really stiff when new, I still have mine loaded in the case just to compress the springs a little. I've shot Blazer, Winchester Value Pack (from Walmart) and Winchester Law Enforcement Ammo - it all goes fine after the break in. The 165gr Law Enforcement Ammo is comfortable to shoot and feeds great. The only FTF's I've had are with new magazines - I've had zero FTE's. It is a comfortable gun to carry in my front pocket in a basic Desantis holster, I also have an IWB that I wear in my back that is comfortable.

I am very pleased with my CW40. Wasted no time going to the range and I must say it definitely a potent, accurate to 15yds CCW small package rocket

Great gun and great deal. Low recoil and shoots anything I put in it; including reloads. Bud's can't be beat on price or service.

Fired less than seventy rounds through it and the finish started to peel from the barrel. Fired one hundred twenty rounds through it and the slide locks back all the time. Contacted Kahr customer service by email on 01/19. They responded with options the following day. I responded with what I wanted to do. they did not respond for six days so I sent another email. They responded that same day. They don't pay for shipping on the defective pistol. First and last Kahr I purchase.
