    I didn't know Kahr was going to make a PM40. Talk about a pocket monster. Who's going to try it first? Not I :D

    Funny... not listed on the Kahr website... no announcement at all... maybe they put up the wrong text?

    Someone at Sigforums held one at his LGS a couple days ago.
    They have arrived.

    As light as the frame is on my PM9, the PM40 has got to KICK :what:

    I think I'll wait a while. Or maybe get one of those K40 Coverts I keep seeing all over the place.

    That's what I thought, but the slide in the picture at the bottom of the page clearly says PM40. The spare magazine in the picture is a P40 Covert extended magazine too.

    Yeah, I'll betcha they bark real big!!

    Dang! Was getting ready to go by a PM9.....maybe I'll wait and see how this one does on the market..I would prefer the extra thump for my pocket blaster!
    You think the frame will hold up to the .40? Opinions?
    I just hate that when it happens...at least I waited!

    I've owned and shot a KelTec P40 for years. I would imagine the Pm40 has at least that much kick. A hand full.
    I'm picking up a PM9 this morming. (blackend)

    Yeah, I had a Keltec .40 too....

    briefly, and you are right, pistolwhipped, it was a handful!!!!
    So, maybe the the PM9 afterall! Hmmmm.
    I just hate that......got your mind made up and someone throws a wrench into the mental machine!!!!

    I have a Kahr K40 and I wouldn't want to go any smaller and lighter than that in a .40. I don't find the recoil that bad from the K40, but my old elbows will be aching after 50 rds. The PM40 recoil would have to be like a light weight .357 magnum revolver.

    I wonder if the P40 Covert would be that much easier to shoot.

    My P40 has alot healthier recoil than my PM9, and I have shot Corbon in both. I actually think the PM9 is kind of a pussycat, but after 50 rounds in the P40, you can feel it later in the hand. Not pain, but you know you have shot it with some good loads.

    Maybe they'll come out with a PM357 or MK357 :D

    I can dream...





    *edit*

    On second thought it wouldn't make much sense with such a short barrel. Alot of noise and not much (if any) gain in velocity over 9mm +P+ with one fewer round.

    Sorry, no such animal......

    That Kahr for sale is probably their P-40 "Covert" model, which has a longer barrel and frame then the PM9. Kahr sells both the P9 and P40 "Covert" models with longer barrels. I believe this series was Kahr's first attempt with polymer frames.

    It says PM40 on the slide and it sure looks like a Kahr "micro".

    And it's advertised as a PM40....

    Over 12,000 hits and no one has bid yet. Think all of the hits generated from this thread? :)

    That's just the number of hits on all of their auctions since a certain time period. Check the number of hits on their other auctions and you'll see what I mean. In reality the auction probably has 100 hits since they put it up.

    Hello. I've been looking on THR for a while now but finally have something worth saying;) .

    The Kahr PM40 is real. I picked up mine today. I called Kahr on Wednesday just to make sure the dealer wasn't pullin' my leg......they said their website hasn't been updated yet to include the PM40. They have shipped a few out though.

    I will post pictures sometime this weekend and give a full review soon.....

    So how do they shoot? I should have my PM40 in hand by this weekend and am real curious about recoil from such a small/light package.

    I'm sure it will be heavy, but yet on the other hand I'm sure it won't be any heavier than shooting 210gr. .41mags out of a 19oz Taurus titanium snub like I used to do. :D

    They are popping up for sale and yes, they are PM's.

    IMO, I don't think the frame can take it. My covert was 9mm and warped all to hell after some range time.

    However , a PM-10 WOULD be cool. :uhoh:
