Kahr PM-40

I have a Kahr PM-9 and am thinking of getting a PM 40. What can I expect in the recoil dept. Is it that much different from the PM9?
Thanks

Ken I've shot both, bought the PM9. I'd say if the weight isn't a big drawback and you want to shoot .40 in that small package, then get an MK40. I got one of those too and it's a pretty sweet little shooter.

The one I picked up is called and Elite, I see they still make them. It's been very reliable.

I was going to recommend the MK40 too. I just got the MK9 and like it a lot.

Yeah the PM 40 Is approaching the design parameters of an air weight .357. It works but it is hell to practice with. One of the reasons I chose the PM9 is its ability to shoot +P ammo,which places it pretty damn close to the .40 S&W in terminal ballistics.

I decided to keep my PM9 and not get the PM40. I had a lightweight 357 and didn't like the recoil due to my arthritis.
Thanks for all of your comments.

Well now you can take the money you "saved" by not going down that path to buy your PM9 a set of night sights or a new holster.

I have both a PM9 and PM40. The 40 has quite a bit more recoil than the 9, but I wouldn't say it approaches 357 levels. My biggest compliant is the fact the 40 beats up the underside of my trigger finger, due to the small trigger guard.

If I'm doing a range session with the 40, I put a band aid pad side down on my trigger finger. A box of 50 isn't that big a deal as far as felt recoil into my hand goes. It's just the trigger finger punishment. I'm used to shooting both 357 and 44 magnum.

Carver I'm a little surprised that you have both. Which would you keep if forced to part with one?

I'd keep the PM9. I would trade the PM40 for the steel version if given a chance, since I have several thousand rounds of 40 ammo stockpiled.

I've considered selling the 40, but it's just not in my nature to sell a firearm. I've only sold three in my lifetime, and I've later regretted selling two of those three.

I keep the PM40 in my primary driving vehicle, hidden but readily accessible. Makes a nice car gun in event of a car jacking, etc. Easier to get to than my carry pistol while I'm strapped in with the seatbelt.
