Hey trying to decide between Kahr CM9 and Kimber Solo what are your thoughts?
I really like the look of the solo but I've heard they are very ammo specific. I would go with the kahr, it's a proven system. I have the pm40 and love it
The kahr is a proven system. I do not have any first had expierence with the kimber, but I was in the same situation as you earlier this year. I did lots of reading and research before I purchased the kahr. The kimber had a lot of mixed reviews. 99% of the reviews I read on the cm were positive.
I can tell you that I love my CM9 and it has never had a failure of any kind.
I have a Kahr PM9 and it's been perfect so far with a variety of ammo.
As much as I dislike Kahr's I'd take the CM9.
The 3 Solo's I've encountered have had this problem where the magazine falls out during firing. And they have no texture to them. They're completely slick.
Kimber is addressing the slick grip issue with an upcoming version called the CDP, which has checkering on both the front and back straps. Unfortunately, they bundle the CDP with laser grips, so that will jack up the price quite a bit, especially if you don't want a laser on your handgun. That said, I've handled the Solo and the CM9 and PM9, and if I was plunking down as much cash as it'd take to buy the Solo, I'd buy the PM9.
You can't go wrong with the Khar..In my opinion it is one of the best platforms for semi auto concealed carry.
Cm9 hands down. Had one w/ no problems, and for 420 otd cant beat it!
