One more question. Is the slide lock/release lever flush in the frame?

I want to see comparison pictures of the Nano and a Glock 26. I handled a Nano in the GS and it did seem pretty big.

Yes, i know, I have one. I just don't have a Nano. After handling the Nano at the store then the 26 at home I think the size difference is negligible. I would like to see side by side pics.

The main difference in size is the nano is a little heavier and about .2 in longer. It is also about .3 (its .2 after measuring) inch thinner than the Kahr because it doesn't have an external slide release.

The main difference in trigger...I would say my kahr trigger is about 6 or 7lbs (I polished internals) and the nano is about 8 or 9lbs, both break at the very end and don't reset untill almost all the way forward. The Nano is more Glock like in its feel.

I like the 3 dot sights on the nano better than the dot the i on the kahr.

Great pics and info. My wife is interested in the nano, I already have the PM9 that I like a lot.

Nice polishing job! Did you hand polish it or use a dremel/power tool of some kind?

The pics are great, but I feel like we need a quarter or something for scale. They both look so tiny.

The Nano's trigger is indeed more "Glock-like". It's length of pull is a bit longer than the PM9, and it does stack up a bit at the end.

Pull weights w/the electronic scale, averaged over five pulls:
PM9: 5lbs 6oz.
Nano 6lbs 13oz.

The Nano does not have an external slide lock/release lever. Internal only, so slingshotting only.

Despite the PM9's slightly shorter length and lighter trigger, I have come to prefer the Nano. The Nano feels more solid and locks up tighter, and it shoots smaller groups. I much prefer the Nano's sights over the PM, and the Nano shoots to point of aim at defense distances, whereas my PM does not. But the main thing that makes me prefer the Nano is that is has not had a single flaw in over 500 rounds, and I cannot say that about my PM9.

Once I find a decent holster for the Nano, it will replace my PM9 as my most often-carried handgun.

I just thought it was funny. The Kahr was missing the front and back sights, and it look extra shinny.

I was thinkin' you were up to something
