I tested the MK-9 and MK-40 a couple of years ago and carry it off and on. I have a Sparks pocket rig and an Alessi ankle rig. The 9 is really nice and it the one I carry most often. As with almost everything else, I just don't care for anything in .40 cal. The MK-9 has worked perfect.
For the article Cylinder & Slide slicked one up with Wolf Springs, a trigger job, polished slide, carry bevel, serrations on the top of the slide and baby Novaks.
Ammo chronographed is listed below:
Winchester 115 gr. Silver Tip 1034
Speer 124 JHP Gold Dot 1051
Federal 135 Personal Defense H.S. 951
Remington 115 JHP +P 1103
Remington 124 +P Saber 1065
Winchester 115 JHP +P+ (LE Only) 1186
Federal 115 +P+ (LE Only) 1201
Federal 124 +P+ Hydra Shok 1070
All this from a 3" tube.
I also like the full size (what a misnomer) K-9. It just feels right!!
I also have a Covert .40 which is a cut frame on a full length slide. Was thinking about really trick stuff and wondered how it would shoot if converted to .357 SIG. What a pocket rocket!
Kahr has a good product and really should get more credit than they do.
