Late in 2013 Kahr introduced its first value-priced full-sized pistols, the CT40 and CT45. The new CT4043 and the CT4543 feature a full-size polymer frame with a stainless steel slide and white bar-dot sight configuration. Chambered in .40 S&W, the CT4043 has a 4-inch barrel and weighs 21.8 ounces with the magazine. The CT4543 is chambered in .45 ACP and has a 4.04-inch barrel and weight of 23.7 ounces with the magazine. Both models offer 7+1 capacity. They each retail for $499 and are expected to be available in February 2014.
