10 years or so ago, I bought a CM9.  I wanted the PM9, but decided to save some money.

Now, I'm thinking about getting the PM9 that I always wanted.  

But, is it *really* worth it, especially if I already have the CM9?

Thanks for any replies.

My experience with Kahr is hit or miss...I had a PM9 that was very unreliable..I have a P9 that has been great...so basically if you have no issues with reliability with your CM9 I would be happy and content with that! I also have a Kahr in 380 the is ammo finicky

If your CM9 is reliable, stick with it. PM9 differences are entirely cosmetic and very minor. I believe the only reason Kahr kept the P series of guns was because they’re on the California approved list.

Good info, thanks.

My CM9, she's been a trusty steed.  I wouldn't want to lose that.

My MK 9 was fine . Trigger pull not great though . It was a bit heavy .

I’d prob swap for a pm9 .

The Cm and PM are the same except for Mim parts and cosmetics.

The PM9 has polygonal rifling vs the CM9 having traditional rifling.

I am on my second CM9 and also have a CW9 that I shoot cast reloads through.

I bought the CW9 used and it needed a recoil spring because it was having light primer strikes (probably the reason I bought it cheap).
