View Full Version : CW 9 trigger finger pinched
12-10-2009, 03:01 PM
I have had my CW 9 for about 3 months now and have put over 200 rounds through it. My problem is that the bottom of my trigger finger gets pinched between the bottom of the trigger and the trigger guard. I have tried to start with my finger on the top part of the trigger to try to eliminate this problem, but it doesn't always work. I have never had this problem with any other gun. Any advice?

Wow, I just came off of a Kel-Tec PF-9 talk about finger pinch!
I found my Kahr P-9 and thought I was in heaven with its trigger, so much nicer, smooth and no pinch, whataya got for fingers, Salamis?;)
Good luck maybe one of the long time Kahr shooters can help ya.

I have long hands, and found that if I put a lot of my finger into the trigger I can get pinched as well. With a single-action trigger, I would have the trigger lay pretty close to the first joint of my finger and have good shooting with its short pull. With my CW9 (and CW40), the pull is long enough that I get better comfort and better accuracy by having the trigger laying toward the tip of my finger. I notice that as I pull, my finger rides down the trigger blade a bit. That's OK because the surface of the blade is so wide and smooth. The better accuracy comes because this method makes the pull a straight back movement, without any tendency to push to the left - as what happens when I have a lot of finger in there. My follow-up shots are right on target. I'd bet that when you try this at the range, you'll get used to it before finishing your first box of ammo.

Not to resurrect a 2-year-old thread or anything, but this is the trigger finger this evening after going 300 rds with the K40:
