Kahr Arms is all set to brighten up its product line by introducing another new colour: purple. Gun Trade World has a look at the pistols behind the purple…
Following the success of its cobalt blue Kahr CW9, black and orange Auto Ordnance 1911, burnt bronze Desert Eagle and the popular Kahr PM9 in robin eggshell blue, Kahr Firearms Group has partnered this time with Davidson’s Inc, one of the largest and most progressive firearms wholesalers in America, to introduce a purple version in either the CW9 or CW380.
Both models feature the same features as the standard model, but to meet the demands of shooters who are looking for something a little more different and a whole lot sexier, they decided to add the purple polymer frame to two of their most popular pistols.
The first offering in the purple pistol product line is the CW9. The pistol features a 3.565in barrel with conventional rifling, and a 1-10 right-hand twist. The weight, height and width of this firearm make it perfect for concealed carry. It measures 4.5 inches in height, and 5.9 inches in overall length. Weight is just 15.8oz with an additional weight of 1.9oz to accommodate the magazine. The capacity is 7+1 and the slide width is 0.9 inches.
The CW9 features a drift adjustable white bar-dot combat rear sight and pinned-in polymer front sight. The purple colour is a first time offering for the CW9.
Also offered in purple is the CW380. Like the CW9 this pistol is packed with features, but in a smaller frame. The CW380 measures just 4.96 inches in overall length, height is 3.9 inches and it weighs just 10.2oz with an additional magazine weight of 1.3oz, and the slide width is 0.75 inches. The CW380 has a capacity of 6+1. Like the CW9, the CW380 also features drift adjustable white bar-dot combat rear sight and pinned-in polymer front sight.
The light, small and thin CW9 and CW380 make popular choices for concealed carry but also for those shooters who prefer a comfortable grip with easy concealment, reliable accuracy and stopping power.
