Kahr proudly makes their handguns in the U.S.A. and lists the CW380 at $419.
And that's a high MSRP.

Compared the MSRP on the Kahr website. the CM9 is $517.00, the CW9 is $485, and as you stated, the CW380 is $417.00. I've seen CW9s go for around $350.00 new here. Hopefully, the CW380 will go for under $300.00.

These have me wanting a pocket .380 again. I have enjoyed my CM9 so much.

WOW! I did not know about this; I am wanting one now. My most carried gun is my CM9 with my Glock 26 being in 2nd place but I do like small guns and will have to pick one of these up.

Most important is that it is of locked breech design and not blowback.

I wish this would come out already. I could understand the dealt if it was a ground up build, but it's the same gun, with less machining. The only real new thing they had to make was the barrel.

I agree, hurry up and release this already Kahr! Although maybe they're working out any kinks in it, which is cool by me, but they could speed it up a little.

I love my CM9, and I can't wait to see this one in stores. The Kahr website shows it now on their website with an MSRP of $419, and also states "New in 2013." We'll see if we actually see them in stores this year.

I emailed kahr and got this generic email,

"Due to the unprecedented demand on our entire line of American made C series products, the highly anticipated launch of the CW3833 and the CM4543 has been delayed until late fall.

To our valued customers and dealers, we apologize for this delay. Our staff has worked feverishly during the summer months to catch up but demand has continued unabated for our current products and especially the CW and CM series. We have taken this action to formally announce this delay in shipping until late fall. Please revisit our website in the fall for updates on shipping status".

Yeah, this one will take a little while to get to all the shops in enough quantity. Luckily, most of the average shoppers know very little about Kahr. I have this one on my list to buy, too.

Purchased a CW380 last Saturday from Ozark Armory in Springdale, AR. Price out the door for me was $341. Haven't shot it yet...hopefully tomorrow. I really like the extra "heft" the stainless upper provides. It also makes it a bit bulkier than the Ruger or Kel-Tec...but still an awesome pocket pistol.


Regards,

I am picking mine up tomorrow. I feel I got a smoking deal. A dealer that I purchase my Kahrs from called me about a week ago and sold me one for 299.00. Can't wait. It will go well with my CW40 and my CT40 when it comes in.

Had a good outing with CW380 today. Impressed with how it shot and how it handled. It didn't like the Tul Ammo. Everything else (all fmj) ran without a hiccup. Will try some hollow points next time out. Very happy with the gun so far.

I shot 135 rounds today. All ball ammo except 6 rounds of old Blazer Aluminum HPs. This little pistol ate it all. Hope to shoot another 100 rounds tomorrow.

That's good news on the price. I noticed PSA is running a black friday sales on the cm9 and cm40 ($339 plus $15 shipping to an FFL). Actually works out to about $15 less than what I paid locally with tax, but a little more of a PITA to get it to an FFL).

I hope my local store gets them soon. I keep asking, but they are saying nothing yet. They usually have very competitive prices, too.

I am hoping this can be a better pocket pistol for me. Put it this way, I can carry the keltec p32 in a pocket holster just fine, but the cm9 is far too big for a pocket for me. I'm hoping the cw380 is managable for me in a pocket. I just don't wear cargo shorts, and I'm desperately trying to find that perfect combination of caliber/capacity and size. Until then, it's IWB with the XDS or cm9 and maybe G26.

I ordered one yesterday. Price is $319. It should be in next week. It is a smaller shop, so I'm assuming it's about average priced. It's still much lower than I thought it would be. Kahr's just seem to have a huge gap between msrp and purchase prices. I'm excited. I just bought a P238, and I'm hoping this fits a pocket even better.

Newgene, I'm sure you will love your new CW380. I have the P380 (in black) and couldn't be happier with how this gun performs & carries. Really a top notch firearm!

If it's anything like my CM9, I'll love it. I'm really hoping for that. The CM9 is just a little too big and too heavy to pocket carry. I have the Sig p238, but even that is a little too thick. I really wanted the p380 for a while, but I never would spend the money on it. I probably would now, but now that the cw380 is on it's way out, I was willing to wait.
