About the Gun

The smallest model in Kahr's Value Series, 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 (3.24 inch for the CM45). The CM9 has the same external dimensions as the PM9 which make it ideal for concealed carry. Kahr pistols are striker-fired locked-breech designs, relying on a modification of the Browning dropping-barrel system with a lug above the chamber locking the barrel into the roof of the slide.

About the Cartridge

This cartridge was developed as a joint venture between Winchester and Smith & Wesson. It was an effort to to create a cartridge with the same power as the 10mm Norma round that the FBI had just started using, but in a shorter case. The shorter cartridge would facilitate accuracy and allow use of a smaller, more comfortable grip frame. The .40 S&W has become the cartridge of choice for many law enforcement agencies in the United States.
