Kahr Arms Showcases New Gen2 at NRA Annual Meeting

Kahr Arms used the NRA Annual Meeting to showcase their new Gen2 Premium line of handguns ahead of this summer's availability.  With tighter tolerances and many upgrades, the company's web site notes the Gen2 "truly is the second generation of Kahr pistols."  Some of the new features include:
  • shortened trigger stroke allowing for quicker firing rates – 30% shorter than premium model
  • integrated trigger safety
  • accessory rail for lasers and lights
  • front slide serrations on 5” and 6” barrel models
  • 6” compensated barrel model
  • Leupold® Deltapoint™ Red Dot mount (5” barrel models) with tall target sights
  • Leupold® Deltapoint™ Red Dot optic included with 6” barrel models
  • TRUGLO® TFX™ Tritium/Fiber-Optic Day/Night sights standard on 3.5” and 4” barrel models
  • Safe-Cam striker-fired action
  • double recoil spring system for reduced felt recoil
  • redesigned magazine base and grip for a sleeker look
  • slide machined from the highest quality of stainless steel available for firearms
  • erial tag on grip frame
  • ergonomic single stack grip frame fits most hand sizes from small to large
  • ships with 3 magazines and a lockable, hard, polymer case
Outdoor Channel's Michael Bane spoke with Kahr Arms' Frank Harris about the new offerings showcased in Nashville.
Kahr rolled out eight of the firearms in Nashville but a total of 12 models will be available by December 2015 with four barrel lengths and three calibers including 9mm, .40 S&W, and .45 ACP. Premium doesn't only describe the model, it could also be used to describe the price.  The MSRP on the new series will range from $976 to $1668.  The 9mm and .45 ACP will be available in July/August 2015 and the .40 S&W will be available in December.
