John & Roxann Koutzoukis: Hi,
I like your reviews.
Which of the 2 weapons has less presived felt recoil.
The Kahr CW45 or the XDS45?
Furious2112: Yeah prices have gone up pretty considerably on the CW-45. This video was
made in June of 2012. In my area of Florida they usually go for around $450.
Brady Taylor: 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!
DailyChannel: My Kahr was JUNK, I had a PM45 It was all issues! How in the XDMs 45acp
compact any idea?
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.
Brady Taylor: 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!
Satch Boogifan: Hey Chad Great review 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
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.
ConstantlyEvolve: The title says CW9 not CW45...but other than that great video! Stay Safe.
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.
Brady Taylor: 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.
Jadervason: you said slide when i think u meant handle but nice video my friend don't
mean to nitpick
CandRreviews: lol. Thanks for letting us know. All fixed. Hope you enjoy the rest of the
CandRreviews: I think $350 is a fair price if he throws in the mags. Best regards!
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.
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.
1987lightningstrike: The kahr cw45 is on sale at palmettostatearmory for 329.99 right now.
Bam Cortez: Can you do a review on the New Taurus PT-111 G2 ?
ravagetime: The Springfield looks like a prop.
filoIII: I have heard the XDs trigger is heavier and longer than it's big brothers.
VetoBurrito: kahrs dont kill people. cars kill people.
Vincent Evans: Great video. Love my cw45
K. Joe Hill: American made all day long!
John Clark: what a tool . its not a beaver tail , its a grip safety , a beaver tail
eliminates hammer bite on a 1911
BrianShort1983: LMAO !! Ruger has a loaded chamber indicator that sticks way up but the xds
isn't to noticeable !! PURPOSE DEFEATED
John Clark: plus support your american workers by the kahr
THStRuXsTiCk: There's a guy creeping behind you. Turn around!!
revistadearmas: The Kahr feel better for large hands, the grip feels nice and the weigh is
Gun Slinger: great review.... Love both the XDs And CW45! Own Xd models already but
think I need the CW45
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 $549.99 which is a high price to pay. If you know
someplace to purchase for lower price, please let me know! Great video,
thanks for posting.
captainpegs07: Why the little safety on the trigger AND a beavertail? The XD is rediculous.
richard barfell: This video was perfect for me because I was looking at these exact two
guns. Just got back from the gun shop where I fondled both excessively and
walked away with a sexy new XDs. You guys are super through and up to date.
Thanks so much!
Jeremy Hofecker: Very nice video. I like your non-biased facts. I owned a CW45..(sold it
like a ding dong) It kicks like a pig cause it's small, but it's a very
nice, well built weapon. Again, GREAT video!!
excelerater: I had both ... the springer FTF alot ..Springer said it was me and not the
gun..which may have been true,kahr never failed me and liked me better I
guess..No one likes a finicky gun
robertwb70: Grip safety, the beaver tail is the part above that which protects your
hand from the hammer (on 1911s where the terms came from).
filoIII: Loaded-chamber indicator is just something else for the round to possibly
John Branton: search the kahr cw on slickguns for a good deal cw40-320$ cw 45-330$ the
cw45 accepts some 1911 mags according to sootch
lifewasting: Great video, thanks
aikido10: So with the Kahr I get $200 dollars cheaper, more ammo, the same size and
unloaded weight except a longer grip in the Kahr, USA Made, whats not to
like then about the Kahr....I think it wins in all categories for me
gardenwarden: My CW45 will use unmodded 1911 mags. Some have to have a little metal
removed from the top of the mags to function 100%. A big plus for the CW45.
61vicb: The XDS is a champ! Very small, but well constructed .45. I would not trade
mine for any other compact .45.... Like with all gun brands, every now
again someone gets a bad apple... So take negative feedback with a grain of
762X39KALASHNIKOV: 350$ for a kahr? more like 450 mags are 40 a piece
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......
LovesBig FemaleFeet: cw45 gets my vote. I own both.
