The CM Series, which debuted in spring 2011 with the CM9, takes the value priced features from Kahr's CW series (3.6" barrel) and incorporates these features into a smaller 3" barrel package. The CM4043 has the same external dimensions as the PM4043, which make it ideal for concealed carry by licensed civilians and law enforcement personnel.
The CM40 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 other value priced compact semi-auto pistols.
