New CW9 Owner

I have had a Bersa .380CC for two months. This past weekend the trigger began to give me troubles. I traded it this morning for a Kahr CW9.

I have put 100 rounds of Fiocchi through it without a hitch. All shots were at 7 yards and, after a bit of an orientation, I began to hit 4"-5" groups. I am very impressed, with myself :wink: and with the pistol!

The trigger is very smooth. I had concerns that it might have been more like my old Kel-Tec P11. Ugh.

It fits beautifully in the Don Hume IWB I had for the Bersa and feels great in my hand. Recoil is very managable.

I'm a happy boy!

Glad you like it. I've had mine for over a year. First 200 rounds were a bit rough but after break in it shoots like a dream and is very accurate. More and more it is becoming my carry gun due to its extremely friendly size and weight.

You will love it! I've owned a lot of revolvers and semi-autos in my time. This CW9 is my all time favorite. It fits my hand like a fine fitting glove and is 100 % reliable. And the best part, it did not cost near as much as its equivalent competitors. I also traded a .380 for mine. 9mm is much cheaper to shoot and it is the same size gun as my heavier .380 was.

Re: New CW9 Owner

I also got a new CW9 a few weeks ago. I ran a little over 200 rounds thru it, most round nose and a few hollow points. I had 3 rounds fail to go off. They were all some Olympic Arms Nato rounds I got from Sportsmans Guide a while back. They had the striker indention in them and did fire when I put them back in. So I don't know if they were bad rounds or I'm getting a weak strike. Since they were all the same type rounds and could be many years old coming from Sportsmans Guide, I'd guess bad rounds. All the other brands of ammo went fine. I found the CW9 accurate for my skills and it fits me very well. I put a Hogu Handall Jr grip sleeve on it and I like the feel. I've got it loaded with Hornady 124 gr Hollow Points now and plan to use it as a CCW gun.

NATO 9mm is notorious for hard primers. And since all failures were from one brand, I would chalk it up as ammo related.

Re: New CW9 Owner

I love my new CW 9.Shoots very tight groups up to 15 feet(same hole groups)
I had a small burr lefton the slide that caused a groove in the frame I had to deburr it,but its still tight and should be ok.I'm going to make a Titanium guide rod for it.
