Thanks a lot!

That kahrtalk site has quite some good info.

I'm really looking forward to get a couple of those 'flush' mags. The modifications look very doable so I'll give it a try in the near future. Also I would like to change the front sight only on my CW45. I'll see what's out there. Any other recommendation on sights is greatly appreciated since this is usually the first mod/upgrade that I do to my guns.

Greg, again, thanks for the videoclip and links about the Kahr's pistols.

This is one possible candidate for the CW45. I need to call them to make sure they have for the CW line.

Go to xssights.com/install.html and check num-2 videoclip

I had correspondence with Bo Wallace of XS recently about express sights for the CW series pistols and his reply was "We do have sights for the CW, E & CM models. It requires having a dovetail cut for the front sight."
I asked today about the feasibility of making a sight that mounts in a fashion similar to how the Trijicon sight does, but have not heard back yet.

You're welcome

Just to keep logging into my CW45, I did go to the range yesterday and put 50 more rds through my pistol and I had 1 stovepiped casing. I had to remove the mag to clear it and then reinsert the mag back. After this I had no more problems. I was 'breaking' 2 new factory mags.

I have shot 270 rds in this pistol and this is the first 'problem' I've had so far, so overall I'm very happy with my, still, 'young' gun since 270 rds is nothing in most handguns anyway.

I'm still looking for sights and holster for the CW45. I'll see how long before I get something of my liking.
