Don Remley: I have made changes on my LC9. Installed the Galloway 35% Shorter Stroke
Trigger Bar and a adjustable trigger.A Stainless Steel Guide Rod. Replaced
the 16lb recoil spring with a 20 lb spring. I removed the disconnect so I
can fire it without the magazine installed. I put on a set of Williams
Fiber optic sights.
These mods make the Ruger LC9 a much better handgun. I think with these
mods they would beat out a lot of the competition.
I also purchased a .22 conversion kit made by Twisted industries.
Johnny Beretta: Great review ! You do them from such a common sense point of view ! Two
really good pistols, but like you, I slightly prefer the Kahr CM9
dampy: Great comparison vid! Always like your dry erase board answers/scores.
Subscribed and liked!
Pugamus Maximus: I just bought a CM9 for $319 after warranty, shipping insurance and
transfer fee the total was $351. My favorite pocket carry even replaced my
Demo Crat: You can now pick up a cm9 for $340.00 The CM9 is the gun to buy!
I am the real Flash: Nice video, thanx for sharing!
Bethany C: Thanks for the video!! Is the recoil about the same on both?
aaronistoledo: The LC9 also has a key lock for the slide. I myself prefer having safeties.
I hate the mag safety, HATE IT! Sometimes things happen and a mag can drop
and cost a life. I bought one LC9 and have 2 Kahrs placed in my home (bad
neighborhood). I must say aside from the mag safety I find them about
Robert Thompson: Ruger LC9 vs Kahr CM9 - TheFireArmGuy
frankie2234: I hope the LC9 works better than the LCP....what a piece of junk, that I
own. It has been back to the factory, and the moment I got it back, it
still jamming rounds into the side of the chamber. Makes a heck of a
paperweight!!!! I can't trust Ruger, because they had a chance to fix it
and failed. Bye, bye Ruger.
glockman1983: Here here. I don't know how many gun vids I've seen on here, you sir have
made the best "vs" video I've ever seen. Practical and to the point.
Exceptional video sir.
bigwalt2990: Just got my new CM9 in today....the freaking trigger squeaks. You field
strip it and you can see the trigger bar riding against some little piece
of wiring looking stuff.
Why am I the only one with a squeaky trigger? NO ONE EVER MENTIONS it when
they review the Kahr. Smooth smooth smooth is all I hear. So I buy one,
and it vibrates as it squeaks. Not to mention the blemishes in the
stainless, and all the slivers of polymer I had to scrub off the frame
inside and out... Prety much had to finish the manufacturing on the friggin
This gun better be the shooter of all shooters, that's all I can say.
(sorry, had to vent)
Dennis Carraher: I have owned both. I gave my sister the Kahr. I found a Galloway kit for
my Ruger and now I am very happy with it. My twin brother owns a Kahr. I
like both, for me the Ruger, for the rest of my family, the Kahr.
smajoria3: There's a loaded chamber indicator on the right side of the Khar! You've
probably figured that out already. Lol
Joseph Simeone: * did I mention the Kahr's great trigger.
TheFireArmGuy: @rasey077 My buddy loves the LC9 too and shares many of your thoughts about
it. The Kahr CM9 is mine and I love that too. I think that both are great
and its a matter of preference either way
Tabitha Langford: I think the answer is obvious....its a safety feature. People have been
known to shoot themselfs or others because they think the gun isn't loaded
just because the mag is out.Some gun company's have even been sued over it
(such as jennings). Although i think its common sense to eject the round in
the chamber alot people don't or just forget.
TheFireArmGuy: Yes there are so many good choices. I would say get a couple. I sure have a
Downtime: does anybody know if you buy a handgun from a private sale at 18 in
ny2001us: You sir, did not address the full context of my comment.
32MrDV: Same here FireArmGuy I also shoot low with LC9. I'm on my way to the range
to master the trigger on the LC9. It's one of my primary carry pieces, so I
must master it before I can consider it saving a life.
Adam Fort: The CM9 has a 7 and 8 round mag available from Kahr website. The LC9 is not
the victor in that department. My gun dealer has the CM9 new for 389 so it
is also cheaper. Price varies greatly by time, state, and who you know.
Dave Van Halen: Hey nice videos, I just discovered you, thank you for what you are doing. I
do have a question, I recently purchased the Ruger LCP 380, I carry it
everyday, it fits very nice in my back pocket, however in the back of my
mind, i keep questioning myself, if my LCP 380 will have the stopping power
if a situation came about??? I will apperciate any feed back from you or
anybody that might know.. thank you.. firstname.lastname@example.org
MrRampro: Great video thank you
TheFireArmGuy: Much appreciated
gmcjetpilot: WHY is a magazine safety a big deal? IT IS NO FACTOR IN REAL LIFE... and it
might save your life or from shooting your gun accidentally. You can make
up all kinds of scenarios up in your head that will never happen, where you
are the hero and save the day all because there was no magazine safety....
It just is not a factor.
Justin derrell: bud gun shop currently has the cm9 for 369.00
bigbrolla: Many would say advantage Kahr when it comes to the safety features. The LC9
is a lawyer designed gun w/ way too many external safety features. A long
double action trigger is fine for revolvers...why not a semi-auto? I love
Ruger (own/have owned several of their pistols) but I sold my LC9, mostly
bc of the way too long, gritty trigger. Looking at getting either a Kahr
CM9 or a Sig P938 (or maybe a Shield or XDs...so many good choices out
coinfinder1: MY second gun or bug is also a Ruger the litlle peas shooter lcp 380 with
some ammo that mushroom out 3/4 of a inch! Thats in a pocket holster. That
little gun is very good at up close range.
TheFireArmGuy: Ruger are all lawyered up
TheFireArmGuy: Good point and I can see how the mag disconnect is a safety feature
TheFireArmGuy: Yes crimson trace makes a great laser that fits on the trigger gaurd
Bill Whitmire: Trust and reliability is determined after 500 rds of carry ammo thru each
gun ...not your personal preference
TheFireArmGuy: Kahr is not $100 better it is $200 better than the LC9. Now I know some
guys like the LC9 and Im a Ruger fan (my vids are proof) however in this
comparison Kahr for the win
TheFireArmGuy: It shouldnt be more expensive. Its the same platform just smaller
Joshua Combs: what is your opinion on the Beretta Nano? Im trying to decide between the
nano and the cm9.
TheFireArmGuy: Man what a great comment and I appreciate you sharing it. I agree if one is
between the two to save the extra bucks and get the Kahr
TheFireArmGuy: I agree Bryce. I felt the same way with the LCP. I dont get that same cheap
trigger feeling with the SR models
TheFireArmGuy: You make a great point - thanks
Happy Cattle: I like 'em both.
TheFireArmGuy: The safety is in the shooter and not the gun. I dont mind a longer trigger
pull but thats a real lot
TheFireArmGuy: @harpoclarx That is my thought too
TheFireArmGuy: Still worth mentioning
TheFireArmGuy: Overpriced - maybe in some cases but not the CM/CW series. Reliability
issues - I havent seen it. Kahrs are excellent
Manson Prepper: LC9 has too much of that California compliant bullcrap Kahr arms rocks
TheFireArmGuy: Everyone is biased in some form or another
TheFireArmGuy: Thats true but they make some great guns. I have a mini 14 and love it
Joseph Simeone: I just picked up a cm9 for$ 380 total OTD $423 I can not find a LC9 for
under $399 so I say the price is equal but quality Kahr hands down. Safety
is a opinion not a fact,the best safety is the shooters trigger finger off
the trigger. If you like the Ruger California safety features go for it.
The LCP is safe but not allowed in Cali. so ruger decided not to make 2
styles of LC9 and doom us all to the LC9 love it or leave it based on the
crazy amount of safeties built in to it.
