bought a kahr cw45acp/sold/xds-now

This is where we can talk about our guns. I'd particularly like to see reviews and range reports of your guns, especially if it is a model that others may not be familiar with.

bought a kahr cw45acp/sold/xds-now

Postby carload9 » Mon Dec 17, 2012 7:26 am

edit:3.jan.2013 Sold, bought xds, much better, done with kahrs, my second and prob last. Much better stuff on market now. And guy on gunbroker lied, and after gunsmith looked at kahr.


i found on gun broker for 300 w/extra 50$ mag w/100 rnds thru it, a kahr cw45acp. I had a cm9 before, traded it for a sig938. The kahr cw45acp has pretty good reviews, 6 inches long and i have small hands .. Need a single stack like this. I think the big mag allows for 7 + 1.

Sweet. I always wanted a Kahr, never got around to buying one. Give us a range report when you get a chance.

I just bought a XDS too. I like that little pistol. It's smaller then my EDC M&P 9c. The recoil is not too bad and it's accuate. For me, it's a keeper :lol:

xds45

Postby carload9 » Sat Apr 13, 2013 10:40 pm

yep, mine seems to be a keeper too. Xds has smallest 45acp grip in the world. Have u had any failures or jams? I have eel snot now and it helps, will shoot around 150 rnds this week. Eel snot on ebay/$6.95/free shipping.

I have had some kahrs, they need to clean up their floor plate area. Kahr has hard time chambering a HP. My cm9 did not shoot straight. The kahr45 i bought used and unloaded it with problems. Kahr is a big money/company grabbing corp.. They bought magnum research.

The sig 938 is best so far. And the xds45 acp is one good thing to have around.

I have 100 rounds thru mine with out any jams. I cleaned it and lubed it with WEAPON SHIELD. Mine will chamber a empty case from the mag. I haven't shot any SD ammo thru it yet. I have more rounds to go before that. I've heard some were having FTF during the breakin but it cleared up by 100-200 rounds. Just keep it lubed up good

xds

Postby carload9 » Sun Apr 14, 2013 8:23 am

I keep it clean. Its never had any but my cast reloads thru it. I think its broke-in. Wish quality of chamber could be smoother, it has some tiny pits up front.

I cut paddle off holster and installed (ami) belt clip.

A friend of mine carries an XDS, he speaks highly of it. I shot one a week ago, it's a good pistol. Capacity Vs size is a personal decision. For myself I still want more capacity.
