Kahr Arms Introduces New and Improved PM9 Pistol

September 10, 2009  | 


The new and improved Kahr PM9 has a loaded chamber indicator and an external safety.

Kahr Arms has introduced a new model of its popular PM9 pistol. The new model, available as the PM9193 and PM9193N, includes a loaded chamber indicator and external safety feature.

Loaded Chamber Indicator—The new model is designed to provide physical indication if there is a casing loaded in the chamber. The product is designed with a lever mounted on the top of slide. The lever is marked as Indicator in red lettering. When a shell casing is chambered the casing pushes the lever up and out of position. The operator will visually see the lever as it is raised up. Also the operator will be able to feel the indicator as being out of its normal resting position, as it will not be flush with the top of the slide, thus warning the operator that the firearm is loaded.

External Safety—The new model has, in addition to the internal safety, an external safety that will prevent the firearm from firing when the safety is in safe position. The product has an external lever with two settings. When the lever is pushed up the red dot is visible; the firearm is in the armed position and ready to fire with the pull of the trigger. When the lever is pushed down, the red dot is hidden and the firearm is in safe position and will not function with the pull of the trigger. The safety works in the following sequence. When the lever is in the down (Safe) position the connecting cam on the lever pushes the trigger bar out of position thus disconnecting it from the cocking cam. Even when the trigger is pulled, there is no contact between the trigger bar and the cocking cam and there is no fire. When the lever is pushed up (fire/armed position), the cam moves out of place and the trigger bar moves up, again connecting with the cocking cam and ready to fire with the pull of the trigger.

This new model PM9 is introduced to comply with certain state regulations for firearms. The standard model PM9 will also remain available for purchase.

MSRP for the PM9193 is $924. The PM9193N has an MSRP of $1049.
