View Full Version : New (to me) K9 Elite 2003

Several years ago I sold my Kahr K9 in a fit of bad judgement. It was the only 9mm single-stack pistol I ever carried that felt better than my S&W 3953. Well, this week I was able to trade back into one. Specifically, an Elite 2003 model. I could not be more pleased. The only place this one will go is into some leather and on to my hip. What once was lost, now is found....

Now I just need to find some nice, custom leather for it.

Very nice. Kahr makes some great pistols.

I've sold both a K9 <i>and</i> a 3953 in fits of bad judgment. Wanna help me correct one of those bad decisions by selling me your 3953? :supergrin:

Who made those grips?

Wicked Grips did them. The original owner had them made. I had intended to swap them out immediately, but they have rather grown on me. It means "Dragon" in Chinese (yes...I double checked :supergrin: ).

I've talked with Ed Strange from Wicked Grips a few months ago via email about getting the above grips done. He said they would cost me about $250 and a few months. I may have that done to my P7M8 as I have no other "trophy gun."

To ripley16:

That kanji means "Lau" in Chinese, which is my family name.

My K9 Elite 2003 (K9098N with the Tritium sights) has been a daily carry for the last 18-months. I use a small IWB holster from High Noon, and it conceals very well under business attire.
