About the Handgun:
The CM Series takes its features from Kahr's CW series (3.6 inch barrel in 9mm, .40 SW and .45 ACP) and incorporates them into a smaller 3 inch barrel package. The CM9 has the same external dimensions as the PM9 which make it ideal for concealed carry.
About the Manufacturer:
This us company was founded in 1993 by Justin Moon, with the intent to fill a perceived gap in the handgun market for a larger caliber ultra-compact pistol for concealed carry. The company has attained a long standing reputation for quality. In 1999, Kahr Arms bought Auto-Ordnance Corp., and continues to produce their line of semi-automatic weapons, including a long-barreled, semi-automatic version of the famous 'Tommy Gun.'
About the Cartridge:
This cartridge was introduced along with the Luger semi-automatic pistol. The pistol and cartridge was first adopted by the German Navy in 1904 and then by the German Army in 1908. This cartridge has since been adopted by the military of practically every non-Communist power. It has become the most popular and widely-used handgun cartridge in the world. Performance wise, the 9mm cartridge has somewhat more power than the .38 Special but falls well short of the .357 Magnum.
