John Branton: search the kahr cw on slickguns for a good deal cw40-320$ cw 45-330$ the cw45 accepts some 1911 mags according to sootch
revistadearmas: The Kahr feel better for large hands, the grip feels nice and the weigh is just right
K. Joe Hill: American made all day long!
excelerater: I had both ... the springer FTF alot ..Springer said it was me and not the gun..which may have been true,kahr never failed me and liked me better I guess..No one likes a finicky gun
frank you: cw45 gets my vote. I own both.
PS3andPCgamereviews: you mention in the video not to pay over $350 for Kahr. Is there anywhere these days that sell them for that price? I looked at the Kahr today at gander mountain, and it's $549.99 which is a high price to pay. If you know someplace to purchase for lower price, please let me know!
Great video, thanks for posting.
61vicb: The XDS is a champ! Very small, but well constructed .45. I would not trade mine for any other compact .45.... Like with all gun brands, every now again someone gets a bad apple... So take negative feedback with a grain of salt.
762X39KALASHNIKOV: 350$ for a kahr? more like 450 mags are 40 a piece
Jeremy Hofecker: Very nice video. I like your non-biased facts. I owned a CW45..(sold it like a ding dong) It kicks like a pig cause it's small, but it's a very nice, well built weapon. Again, GREAT video!!
Vincent Evans: Great video. Love my cw45
ravagetime: The Springfield looks like a prop.
56tigwelder: Thanks for your reply! I was in the "serious" purchase mode until I heard about them and it has put some serious reconsideration into gear now. That truly is a disappointing turn of events. I've been unable to get an all clear from Springfield CS, they have stated to more than one that it must be either a cleaning, lubrication or insufficient break in period. When those are ruled out, the problem still exists for the majority of those polled. Why is there always a cold shower waiting?? Thanks!
Bam Cortez: Can you do a review on the New Taurus PT-111 G2 ?
CandRreviews: We did not mention those issues because the gun was brand new to the market and no one had really had one for very long and we did not experience any issues of this type with this firearm. We tried to replicate this issue a few times with no success. From what i heard it is caused by the recoil spring not being seated properly or the firearm not being lubed properly. Again we had no such issue with this firearm and it was my daily carry for a while and we also shot wll over 1500 rnds through it.
56tigwelder: Do you have any thoughts on this issue or heard of any corrections to these issues? I've heard good and bad comments about Springfield's handling of the problems so far. I've been considering the XDS and/or the PM 45. But the problems with the XDS have really dampened my desire to get one. Doesn't seem that there is much being done to lessen people's concerns about these issues either. Thanks for your input!
56tigwelder: You didn't mention the problems that I've been reading more and more about with the XDS. I've seen multiple complaints regarding the ability of the pistol to go out of battery when loaded by simply pushing the slide back a few millimeters. This has happened to fellow shooters I've spoken to after they sat down with the pistol in a pocket or IWB holster. Until you physically push it back into battery you're SOL. There is also much talk about the mag release failing or failing to hold the slide.
robertwb70: Grip safety, the beaver tail is the part above that which protects your hand from the hammer (on 1911s where the terms came from).
lifewasting: Great video, thanks
THStRuXsTiCk: There's a guy creeping behind you. Turn around!!
BrianShort1983: LMAO !! Ruger has a loaded chamber indicator that sticks way up but the xds isn't to noticeable !! PURPOSE DEFEATED
gardenwarden: My CW45 will use unmodded 1911 mags. Some have to have a little metal removed from the top of the mags to function 100%. A big plus for the CW45.
captainpegs07: Why the little safety on the trigger AND a beavertail? The XD is rediculous.
1987lightningstrike: The kahr cw45 is on sale at palmettostatearmory for 329.99 right now.
Justin Opinion: Nice comparison of two fine quality guns. I have a PM9 but opted for the XD-S in .45. Kahr takedown is a bugger, as that slidelock pin is VERY tight and usually must be tapped. Springfield takedown is much easier (almost Glock easy, but not quite). IMHO, the XD-S is a fantastic choice. Shorter grip on the XD-S also makes it more concealable.
Gun Slinger: great review.... Love both the XDs And CW45! Own Xd models already but think I need the CW45
Satch Boogifan: @CandRreviews
Thanks for getting back to me.
My last offer to him was $330 and he was stuck at $400, down from $420 starting price.
I'll give him a day or two. Then offer the $350.
Wish me luck......
CandRreviews: I think $350 is a fair price if he throws in the mags. Best regards!
Satch Boogifan: Hey Chad
I saw a local guy has a Kahr 45 like yours there for sale with three mags.
What's a fair price. Assuming he's telling the truth on only 300rds down range.
I'm not looking to beat him up on price
But I don't want to find out I paid him more than he paid brand new
DailyChannel: My Kahr was JUNK, I had a PM45 It was all issues! How in the XDMs 45acp compact any idea?
filoIII: I have heard the XDs trigger is heavier and longer than it's big brothers. True?
filoIII: Loaded-chamber indicator is just something else for the round to possibly snag on.
tomcatwasthere: I held the xds and the cw45 at cabelas and bought the cw45 bc it feels better in my hand, less money, same size...etc. The xds feels kinda slim/thin and I can't get a good grip on the gun. It feel as though it will start to hurt my hands after couple hundred rounds at the range. The cw45 feels awesome. I feel like I can shoot the cw45 all day. I can get two kahr for the price of one xds. Kahr got me sold.
andrewfagan88: Excellent comparison. I love that you two are very thorough and provide the details that ACTUALLY matter. Keep it up guys, you have some of the best firearm reviews/tests/comparisons/etc. on youtube.
aikido10: So with the Kahr I get $200 dollars cheaper, more ammo, the same size and unloaded weight except a longer grip in the Kahr, USA Made, whats not to like then about the Kahr....I think it wins in all categories for me then....
richard barfell: This video was perfect for me because I was looking at these exact two guns. Just got back from the gun shop where I fondled both excessively and walked away with a sexy new XDs. You guys are super through and up to date. Thanks so much!
John Clark: plus support your american workers by the kahr
John Clark: what a tool . its not a beaver tail , its a grip safety , a beaver tail eliminates hammer bite on a 1911
Jadervason: you said slide when i think u meant handle but nice video my friend don't mean to nitpick
VetoBurrito: kahrs dont kill people. cars kill people.
starshipfantastica: Great review. I ran into you guys on youtube with the Sig p238 comparisons. These gun vs gun comparison are very helpful. Can you do a quick XDs vs the CM9. I just want to get an idea of size and weight to go from 9mm to 45acp. Thanks.
CandRreviews: lol. Thanks for letting us know. All fixed. Hope you enjoy the rest of the vids.-Ryan
ConstantlyEvolve: The title says CW9 not CW45...but other than that great video!
Stay Safe. CE.
