KAHR S9

Concealed Carry Hand Guns - - THE ARMORY -

The S9 (and the closely-re­lated ST9) are two brand-new pis­tols in Kahr’s Value Line of pis­tols. But don’t let the term “value” frighten you—these are very solidly build semi-auto pis­tols that have the same in­no­va­tive trig­ger-cock­ing DOA de­sign that you’ll find in other Kahr guns (wherein the trig­ger pull ac­tu­ally fin­ishes cock­ing the gun be­fore fir­ing, a great safety fea­ture) and locked breech de­sign with Brown­ing-style re­coil lug.

What you don’t get with these value guns is as many nifty de­tails on the met­al­work or polyg­o­nal ri­fling, which are found on Kahr’s more ex­pen­sive Pre­mium guns. The poly­mer frame and stain­less steel slide make this gun durable yet light; with an empty magazine the S9 weighs in at just un­der 18 ounces.

This gun is also com­pact and can be eas­ily car­ried as it mea­sures 5.9 inches long with a 3.6-inch bar­rel and has a height of 4.5 inches. It also comes with a long list of fea­tures that in­cludes white three-dot sights, front slide ser­ra­tions and even an ac­ces­sory rail. Ca­pac­ity is 7+1, which is right in keep­ing with this class of guns, and the slide width is un­der an inch. It’s priced be­low $500, so if you’re look­ing for the hottest new sin­gle stack, this might just be it.
