    Anyone own both? Which one is thinner? Which has cheaper magazines?

    The CW9 is definitely thinner. It's a tossup on the cost of magazines. The SIG is also much heavier being a non-polymer frame.

    i have both and have conceal carried both at different times

    the CW9 is thinner, lighter and has a lighter DA trigger pull

    the Sig 225 is only available with a DA/SA trigger system, but it's front sight is easier to change/adjust...the LE trade-in P6 is less expensive than the CW9

    I have shot the Sig's and own a CW9. Definitely prefer the Kahr. Much lighter and thinner. The trigger pull is long but very smooth. Less weight to carry around. For some unknown reason, I see the hammer move on a Sig when I shoot them. This distracts me. No hammer on the Kahr. Personally, I just like the Kahr better.

    Kahr sells them for $80.

    www.Kahrshop.com

    Probably be stocked most places that carry Trijicon products soon enough.

    The Kahr will be thinner, smaller and lighter, at the cost of one round. It has a very light and smooth DA trigger pull, but this is its only trigger pull.
