New from Kahr this year, the CM45 adds some .45 ACP heft to Kahr’s value-priced CM lineup. All of Kahr’s CM models shave costs by using simpler slide machining, more MIM small parts, and rifling that’s cut instead of polygonal.
All of this simplicity gives the CM45 an MSRP of just over $500, which is $350 cheaper than the functionally-identical PM45. Flush magazine capacity is 5+1, with 6+1 and 7+1 extended magazines available from Kahr.
On a side-note, Kahr makes their guns in Massachusetts and their corporate headquarters are in New York. Kahr’s reps said that new anti-gun laws in NY (and those pending in MA) are too recent to be able to comment on.
