I have a CW9 that I absolutely love. It conceals well and is a soft and accurate shooter. As you all probably know the trigger is smooth but long, especially the reset. I was wondering if anybody here has any experience with shortening the trigger pull and reset? Aftermarket parts for this?

Thanks for any help!

Only thing I came across while searching was Galloway Precision; sadly they have been stuck coming soon for 3 months now.

Looks interesting. I'm willing to give it a try if its at a reasonable cost and this company has a good reputation. Guess I'll wait and see when it comes in stock.

Does anybody have any experience with this company?

This may not be a good idea.

The reason the Kahr Arms is so safe is because it has a longer, revolver-like trigger. Guns like the Glock and S&W M&P have much shorter, lighter triggers that have a trigger lock that prevents the trigger from moving unless your finger (or something else) releases the lock.
For that reason, the Glock and S&W are not safe to carry without a holster that covers the trigger.

The Kahr doesn't need a trigger lock because like a double action revolver, you need a long, heavier pull to fire it.
If you start shortening or lightening the trigger pull, you get into a situation where you can have an AD.

One thing you may want to ask Kahr about: Many Kahr's now come with the "Elite" trigger unit that gives a shorter trigger pull, but is still safe.
I don't know if the CW has the Elite trigger. If not, you can have Kahr install it.
An email will tell you if the CW has the Elite unit.

That's a great point and I totally see what your saying. I'll have to research the Elite trigger option. Thanks for the info.
