So after seeing all the

So after seeing all the glowing reviews on the CM9 around the net, and wanting something for the hottest summer months when only pocket carry will do, I pulled the trigger and got one from SOSS for $355.
After getting it home and opening it up, I have to say I'm a little surprised and disappointed. They have the metal slide riding on all plastic rails. No metal inserts on the rails at all. It won't take a whole lot of rounds before that starts peening.
Are all Kahrs built that way or is it one of the cost cutting measures on the budget line only?

I've put about 2000 rounds

I've put about 2000 rounds through my CM9 and I have seen no evidence of this being a problem. The front rails are metal, and the back rails have a metal piece that bears the weight of the slide. I can still see the "seam" from manufacturing on top of the plastic portion of the rails - it has not worn down at all from day 1.

So you posted your review in October of '13 and it's now May of '14 - how is your CM9 holding up and have the plastic rails posed any problems?

This gun has been the perfect gun for me so far...owned for 1.5 yrs and EDC for about 1 yr and it acts and looks like the same gun as when I purchased it. I've not had a single malfunction when firing. Only caveat is if you plan to carry without a round in the chamber and use the extended 7-rd magazine. I've had issues with that first round racking properly, but only when I slingshot it. Lock the slide to the rear - no problem; however, that's not really something you want to think about if you're trying to get one into the chamber in a hurry. No problem with the 6-rd magazines. I've switched to carrying w/ a round in anyways, so no big deal. If I need to switch to my 7-rd mag, it's because I've already emptied my 6-rd mag and the slide is locked to the rear.

Kahr recommends a 200-rd break-in period, but I just racked the slide about 200 times before shooting it the first time and I never had a problem. This thing can shoot as well as I can...any issues with accuracy are explained by the shooter. I can hit a piece of 5"x5" steel from 40 yds with all 6 rounds if I'm on my game. Plus with DAO only, your trigger pull is the same for each and every round.

There are metal insertsin the frame but yes it does ride on those plastic rails in the middle of the gun and they do wear down. What I found far worse than the design of the rails was the trigger. Very long pull and reset which I very much hate.

The trigger pull is very

The trigger pull is very revolver-like but much shorter and lighter than a Kel-Tec P11 (or my S&W 638 for that matter). I got mine last week and was very impressed at the accuracy it's capable of. I'm not sure of the whole Kahr lineup but this is a pocket gun that needs to be reliable and accurate for pocket carry - certainly not one that I'll take a handgun course with, or otherwise shoot 800+ rounds in a weekend. If you look at it that way, I don't think the wear will be a huge issue. If this is the only or one of the only handguns you have, and you'll be shooting over 1-2000 rounds per year, maybe this isn't the one for you.
