CW45 Springs

Hello Everyone. I purchased a used Kahr CW45 and would like to replace all the springs. I have always changed out my other guns with Wolff springs.

My question is what other Kahr models are the same as the CW45 so I can shop around for springs.

I know I can go to Kahr and purchase but I've always liked Wolff.

CW45, and P45 should be the same. TP45 too, MAYBE. It's a longer slide, so don't quote me. Best bet is to call Kahr or even better still to call Wolff and ask the spring experts themselves.

Like most American gun makers, Kahr almost certainly buys their springs from Wolff.
I'd recommend just buying the springs direct from them.
I think they sell complete spring kits for their guns.

Last, don't be tempted to buy any "extra-power" springs.
The Kahr was designed to use a very specific weight of spring. Going to different springs to make it "better" somehow usually causes problems where there weren't any.
You can get away with spring changes in larger guns, but the Kahr's are operating right on the edge of what's possible in such a small package. There's no room for changes in spring weights.
