Kahr Arms Introduces Value-Priced CT380

Law Shield members might like to know that Kahr has added another double-action compact-pistol to its “Value” product line, the Kahr CT380. It’s a .380 ACP that’s the fourth pistol in the Kahr Value Series to be introduced in 2014. Earlier this year, Kahr introduced the CT40, CT45, and the CT9.

The new CT380, $399 MSRP, features a 3.0-inch barrel, an overall length of 5.52 inches and a height of 4.4 inches. It weighs 11.44 ounces without a magazine. The pistol has a black polymer frame and features 4140 steel inserts molded into the front and back of the frame for added rigidity. It has a machined 416R matte-stainless-steel slide and a textured polymer grip.

The Kahr CT380 features a lock breech, modified Browning-type recoil lug and has the company’s “safe cam” action and offset recoil lug barrel design. The pistol features a drift-adjustable white bar-dot combat rear sight and pinned-in polymer front sight. And the slide locks back after firing the last round.

Differences between the Kahr Value Series CT380 and the Kahr Premium Series P380 models include:

  • the CT series has a conventional rifled barrel instead of the match-grade polygonal barrel found on Premium models;
  • the CT slide-stop lever is metal-injection-molded instead of machined;
  • the CT series slide has fewer machining operations,
  • the CT series uses simple engraved markings instead of roll markings; and
  • the CT series comes with one 7-round stainless-steel magazine and ships in a cardboard box, while the P380 comes with three magazines and is shipped in a lockable plastic case.

As always, Law Shield doesn’t endorse products, but we do want to let members know about new products or services of potential interest.
