Kahr has taken their design a step further and achieved a significant technological breakthrough in terms of packaging a powerful, yet accurate self defense pistol in a platform that will easily fit within any pocket pistol size definition. The fact that the Kahr MK40 fits in an average size hand demonstrates how compact it really is.
The polished stainless steel finish and laser etching on the frame are available on all Kahr Elite 2003 pistols - the K9, MK9, K40 and the MK40. The lustrous finish complements our innovative designs and solid construction. The magazine well is beveled for easier magazine reloading. The feed ramp on the barrel is polished to a high luster to insure reliable feeding with all types of ammo. Laser engraving on the frame provides the finishing touch to the polished stainless steel - for an appearance as impressive as its capabilities.
