Kahr Arms Introduces the CM9

PEARL RIVER, NY – Kahr Arms is pleased to introduce their newest series of Kahr pistols – the CM series. The new line begins with the Kahr CM9093, which is based on Kahr’s most popular 3″ barrel 9mm model the PM9093. The CM9093 will start shipping to wholesalers and dealers in March 2011.

The CM Series takes the value priced features from Kahr’s CW series (3.6″ barrel 9mm, .40 S&W and .45 ACP models) and incorporates these features into a smaller 3″ barrel package. The CM9093 has the same external dimensions as the PM9093, which make it ideal for concealed carry by licensed civilians and law enforcement personnel.

The CM9093 is chambered in a 9 x 19 caliber, has a 3.0″ barrel and an overall length of 5.3″, with a height of 4.0″. The pistol weighs in at 14 ounces plus 1.9 ounces for the 6 rd stainless steel magazine. Differences between the CM models and PM models include: the CM9093 has a conventional rifled barrel instead of the match grade polygonal barrel on Kahr’s PM series; the CM slide stop lever is MIM (metal-injection-molded) instead of machined; the CM series slide has fewer machining operations and uses simple engraved markings instead of roll marking; and finally, the CM series are shipped with one magazine instead of two magazines.

Kahr’s seven patents are incorporated into the CM9093 resulting in benefits not available in other compact semi-autos on the market today. The black polymer frame features patented 4140 steel inserts molded into the frame in the front and back for added rigidity and strength, which can withstand firing thousands of rounds. Kahr’s incomparable cocking cam trigger system employs a patented cam to both unlock the firing pin block (passive safety), and complete cocking and releasing of the firing pin. The system provides a “safe-cam action” and unbelievably smooth double action only trigger stroke, fast to fire in critical defensive situations. Many lower cost compact semi-autos on the market today do not have firing pin blocks in their design.

Kahr’s two patents covering the offset recoil lug and the trigger bar attachment allow Kahr’s barrel to fit lower in the frame, and since there is no hammer, the shooter’s hand is further up the grip resulting in less felt recoil and quick follow-up shots. The CM9093 does not have a magazine disconnect, nor does it have double-strike capability. The CM9 boasts real sights, which are drift adjustable in the rear and a pinned-in polymer front sight featuring a white bar-dot configuration. Finally, the slide does lock back after firing the last round – another feature missing on a number of lower cost compact semi-auto pistols.

The CM9 slide is only .90 inch wide and is machined from solid 416 stainless steel with a matte finish. Each gun is shipped with one 6 rd stainless steel magazine with a flush baseplate.

Magazines are made in the USA, plasma welded, tumbled to remove burrs and feature Wolff Gunsprings. The magazine catch in the polymer frame is all metal and will not wear out on the stainless steel magazine after many uses.

Kahr offers the CM series at a great value price, but did not compromise on the features, accuracy or reliability found in all Kahr pistols. MSRP for the Kahr CM9 is $565.

Kimber Launches Micro-Compact 9mm Pistol

Yonkers, New York, January 18, 2011 – One of the most significant firearm introductions in a generation, the all-new Solo 9mm delivers unequaled Kimber quality, performance and dependability in a micro-compact pistol. Shipments of Solo pistols to nearly 2,000 Kimber Master Dealers across America have already begun.

Weighing just 17 ounces and only 5.5 inches long, Solo pistols are easy to carry. Near-perfect ergonomics borrowed from 1911 pistols, great trigger and 3-dot sights make them easy to shoot accurately. Standard Solo features include stainless steel slide and barrel, machined aluminum frame, ambidextrous thumb safety, removable grips and ambidextrous magazine release button.

The Solo trigger is a single action striker-fired design with an even and smooth pull that breaks clean at 7 pounds. Frame and slide edges are rounded and blended so they do not snag on clothing or holsters. Slide serrations are deep for a secure grip and the magazine well is beveled for quick and positive loading. Solo sights are steel and securely mounted in dovetails machined into the slide for additional durability.

Two models are currently offered, differing only in color of the finish. The SoloTM Carry frame and small parts are matte black, while the SoloTM Carry Stainless frame and small parts are satin silver. All Solo frames wear KimPro II, a premium finish that is both self-lubricating and extremely resistant to salt and the elements. Magazine capacity is 6 rounds and an extended 8-round magazine will soon be available.

Solo pistols establish a new, high standard of small pistol dependability and performance. Their suggested retail price is just $725.

Crosman Airsoft Introduces Dual Power Assault Rifle And Three Spring Pistols

ROCHESTER, New York- Crosman® Corporation, a leading producer of innovative products for the shooting sports, has added a new dual power assault rifle, the Pulse® DP4, and three new spring pistols, the Stinger P311, P30T and P50 to its growing line of Crosman Airsoft branded products.

Crosman Airsoft’s new Pulse DP4 assault rifle offers the versatility of a spring-powered, single shot mechanism or battery powered semi/full automatic mode. According to Jim Masseth, product manager, “The advantage of dual power is the ability to pre-cock the gun, providing a swift trigger response while the electric mode allows rapid fire for a continuous stream of BBs. The single shot option doesn’t use batteries, so it’s a great back-up to have in your arsenal when you’re low on power,” he said.

“The new rifle and pistols are ideal for your close quarter combat scenarios. Their resemblance to standard military issue weapons make them a popular choice for objective-based airsoft skirmishing,” Masseth comments.

“The Pulse DP4 sports a tactical look and feel, with its quad-rail forend and multi-position stock,” said Masseth. It shoots 600 rounds per minute at velocities up to 275 feet per second (fps) while the adjustable hop-up system allows for precise aiming accuracy.

“A brand new style for Crosman is the Stinger P311,” said Masseth. It is modeled after the popular sidearm used by the United States Military from the early 20th century to the 1980′s. The Stinger P311 features an easy load magazine, velocities up to 275 fps and an effort free cocking mechanism.

The Stinger P30T is a new version of the popular Stinger P30, featuring 25 percent higher velocities than the previous version. It also sports a smoother cocking mechanism.

According to Masseth, “The Stinger P50 is a new, large frame airsoft pistol.” It is an air cocking spring gun with velocities up to 250 fps and a 15-round magazine. “Featuring a lengthened barrel and a flash hider, this Stinger has an ominous look in the field,” he said.

Crosman Airsoft will exhibit its entire product line during SHOT Show 2011 in Las Vegas from January 18-21 in booth number 12740.

Crosman Introduces Multi-Shot Silhouette PCP Pistol

ROCHESTER, New York – Crosman® Corporation, long known for innovation and quality in products for the shooting sports, has introduced the new Crosman Silhouette™ PCP match target pistol.

According to Crosman Product Manager, Terry Neumaster, the Crosman Silhouette PCP Pistol is engineered for target and silhouette competitions where precise shot placement is crucial. “With the PCP power plant, you’re at a great advantage over competitors by not having to repeatedly pump between shots during a match,” he said. “Since the Silhouette PCP’s power is uniform on a shot by shot basis, its consistency is excellent. With its German-made Lothar Walther™ precision barrel, target shooters will find this pistol both highly accurate and surprisingly affordable,” he said.

An intermediate-size, compressed air, multi-shot pistol, the Silhouette PCP is dependable and precise. The redesigned front sight is infinitely adjustable and complements a choice of precision rear sights. The improved trigger on the pistol features an adjustable, two-stage, drop sear trigger utilizing heat-treated metal components. “The trigger mechanism is built with the same materials and precision as the popular Marauder pistol trigger group. Ideal for competition, the bolt is reversible to accommodate right or left-handed shooters,” said Neumaster.

Shooting at velocities up to 450 feet per second, the Silhouette Pistol is capable of 50 shots per fill and meets requirements for both International Handgun Metallic Silhouette Association (IHMSA) and NRA competitions.

The Crosman Silhouette PCP Pistol will be introduced with an MSRP of $375. Crosman will exhibit the Silhouette PCP Pistol and its entire PCP product line during SHOT Show 2011 in Las Vegas from January 18-21 in booth number 12740.

For further information on the new Crosman Silhouette PCP Pistol, or on any Crosman, Benjamin, CenterPoint Hunting and Outdoors Precision Optics and Archery, or Game Face Airsoft products, visit the company’s websites at www.crosman.com, www.centerpointhunting.com, www.gamefaceairsoft.com, or write to Laura Evans, marketing coordinator, Crosman Corporation, 7629 Routes 5 & 20, Bloomfield, NY 14469, email her at levans@crosman.com, or call her at (800) 7-AIRGUN (724-7486).

Crosman Introduces New Gas Blowback BB Air Pistol

ROCHESTER, New York- Crosman® Corporation, long known for innovation and quality in products for the shooting sports, has introduced a new gas blowback air pistol, the C51, featuring a full metal slide and barrel.

Jim Masseth, Crosman Product Manager comments, “many fans of shooting air pistols value the increased realism blowback BB guns have to offer. The Crosman C51 gas blowback features the same action as a real pistol. The realistic recoil action is generated by the release of CO2 propelling the metal slide back, automatically cocking the hammer and chambering a new round,” he said. “In addition to the realistic experience they offer, this BB pistol looks and feels authentic. It’s just a lot of fun to plink with,” said Masseth.

The new CO2 blowback pistol is a semi-automatic repeater powered by a Powerlet® 12 gram CO2 cartridge. It features a comfortable polymer grip and is equipped with a front blade and rear notch sight. The C51 holds up to 20, 4.5mm BBs and resembles a standard US service pistol.

Crosman will exhibit its entire product line during SHOT Show 2011 in Las Vegas from January 18-21. Visit booth number 12740.

For further information on the new Crosman C51 gas blowback air pistol, or on any Crosman, Benjamin, CenterPoint Hunting and Outdoors Precision Optics and Archery, or Game Face Airsoft products, visit the company’s websites at www.crosman.com, www.centerpointhunting.com, www.gamefaceairsoft.com, or write to Laura Evans, marketing coordinator, Crosman Corporation, 7629 Routes 5 & 20, Bloomfield, NY 14469, email her at levans@crosman.com, or call her at (800) 7-AIRGUN (724-7486).
