Kahr TP9 9mm

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

With the addition of the MMC rear sight and an improved trigger, we think this gun is a desirable concealed handgun. For anyone willing to dedicate themselves to DAO fire, the TP9 is a good bet.

The Kahr polymer frame weighed only 3.7 ounces. The 8-round magazine extended the grip significantly. Note the square metallic inserts at the rear of the slide. Slide-to-frame contact is primarily steel to polymer.
We liked the upgrade to the MMC sight from the standard Kahr design. The MMC unit provided an excellent sight picture, a snag resistant profile and seemed nearly invulnerable to impact. Adjustment for elevation was by the Allen screw on the right side. Windage adjustment requires loosening the set screws and shifting the entire unit.
