    Anybody have a picture of these two pistols side-by-side for size comparison?

    On paper the CW9 is supposed to be the same dimensions as the Ruger LC9, but I think in reality it's a tiny bit bigger?

    Thanks!

    Sorry no pics here, I've been round and round over the these guns, so I hope I can help you out some.
    I've had a couple of Kahr CW/P9s I love the pistols but I appendix carry and they are a hair too big for my complete comfort and concealment. The muzzle pokes me and their grip is just long enough to print out over my belt.
    I've been having fun and spending too much money looking for the right CCW. I took my P9 to the shop and compared it to the LC9 side by side...The LC9 is only factions smaller, I'd say it wouldn't even be noticeable in use, so the LC9 had no advantage for me. I ended up with a Ruger LCR which actually carries well(its so damn light too ;) ) my wife has fallen in love with the LCR, so its pretty much gone....Since she is taking it, I decided too get a small 9mm for my CCW. Either a Kahr CM/PM9 or a Sig P290.

    Kahr"s CM9 (or the more perfected/pretty PM9) is a perfect size and weight for summertime CCW EDC, in my opinion. I wear my CM9 in a tuckable IWB High Noon holster and can wear a tight-fitting T-shirt that still hides the pistol.

    I shoot my CM9 almost every week and have now consistently obtained 5" groups at 30 feet. For me, my accuracy should improve over time, but I won't complain about how this pistol shoots. I know it is all me and not the gun.

    If you can, compare them in person to make your decision. My vote is to go with the cw9 or cm9 though, I'm a big fan of kahrs. Not that rugers are bad, but kahrs are just nicer IMO.

    CW40, not CW9, vs. PM9 but the differences between the .40 and 9 are negligible in terms of physical dimensions.

    I have the CW9 and the CM9 and the photos from Mudinyeri have them cover well. I was not a kahr guy till I bought a cw9 for a real low price used . Bought the cm saturday . Great little pistol with very soft recoil for a 9mm, very controlable. Kahr's longer mags work in it too for range or backup. CM and CW can be bought fora waaaay lower price. Both the CM and CW local are 419 new.
