In case anyone is researching these pistols..

The G42 isn't that much bigger than the Kahr CM9..
Actually pretty close in size to the CM9, I thought the Glock was bigger.
I refinished my CM9 and mags in ionbond.
The Glock has Vickers mag base and a Vickers mag release.

Very close, can't imagine why someone would want the bigger one in the smaller caliber though. Compare the G42 with the Kahr P380 and you'll see a huge difference.

Recoil sensitive?

I wouldn't mind playing with a 42. If they bring a single 9 the same size as a 42 and I might think about it...

Good point..
Although the Glock is much easier to shoot, and be accurate with, being larger.
Also the Glock is much easier to rack the slide, reason I bought my G42 for my wife.

Looking at the pics, keep in mind I have the Vickers base on the Glock mag.
The stock base would end at the bottom of the grip..

Glock 42 vs Kahr CW380.











Kahr CM9 vs Kahr CW380..

Can you post comparison pics between all of your pistols and revolvers?

Just kidding, very useful information.

Must be something in the air. Im going to fondle a CM9 again tomorrow. Always wanted that pistol. Bought the CW380 to replace the Bodyguard earlier this year. Got a bad feeling the CM9 will come home with me tomorrow night. I must say that ionbond looks amazing!!! Curious how durable that coating is on firearm applications? Thanks for the porn 1LL.

got to put a few rounds through a 42 at the range Sunday. I was not accurate with it at all. It is one hell of a light weight zero recoil gun though. I might get one for the wife to get her comfortable with shooting something bigger than a .22. Oh I had my Nano and they are almost identical in size with the Nano being just a tad thicker, but having a slightly shorter grip.

OK, some folks are recoil sensitive and prefer a 380, so lots of companies make 9's and 380's on the same platform. I'm sure there are many reasons for buying the 42, but that gun in a 9 would be a smash win and I'd likely carry one myself. Speaking for me I can't imagine carrying a larger gun in a smaller caliber especially when the Kahr is so good.

I had to put about 150 rounds thru the G42 before it ran 100%.
Now it runs 100%.
I still want to run another 100 rds thru the CW380 before I replace my LCP with it.
A few issues with cheap target amm, but it ran fine with my carry ammo.

I have a g42, and am debating the cm9 or lc9s, but my shield is still doing a fine job in that role.

Don't judge it too harsh at first

The little guys can have teething issues initially.
Oh yes. If you remember my CW380 thread, I had a few issues with that as well. Nothing major, just cost a fortune to feed during the break in to achieve 100% trouble free function. If this lil bastard acts up , its not the end of the world. I reload 9mm so that won't be an issues this go round if needed. 400 rounds of .380 busted my wallet's ass wide open last time.
