Arrow LC9 vs. PM9

I ran across this visual comparison between Ruger's LC9 and Kahr's PM9. I thought it was pretty informative and I was surprised to see how much smaller the Kahr was compared to the Ruger.

The neat part is this particular Kahr is the perfect compact 9 for southpaws! Left-side ejector! Suh-weet!!! (LOL)

Hey Jester,

Thanks for the informative physical comparison of the LC9 and the PM9. Good to know.

A review of the current prices at Bud's reveals a $250 difference in the price between the two pistols. It would seem that a prospective buyer would have to see if the smaller size and southpaw features of the PM9 are worth the price difference. Heck, Bud's is even out of stock of the LC9, they can't even keep them in stock.

Sure there are other factors than size and price that probably go into a purchase decision.

Keep in mind that Kahr has the CM9 coming out too. PM size, but a few less features that will put it right at the Kahr price point.

I think the image of that PM9 has been flipped.

Thanks, great comparison. We had a LC9 come through a week or two ago (sold it on Gunbroker), it was a pretty impressive piece. I'm not too fond of my LCP due to the ergonomics - Ruger did a great job in this realm with the LC9.

I think the Kahr is more comparable to Kimber's new Solo then it is to the Ruger LC9. I've looked at and held all three. I think that the only thing Ruger has over the other two it price advantage. I know for many people price is big factor so this may be where Ruger is a success with this gun.

Yes, I'm aware the Kahr image was "flipped". It's called sarcasm.

And, true, the Kahr costs much more than the Ruger. The OP image is just a visual comparison for entertainment purposes only. No wagering please.

I found it on calguns.net a few days ago. Not sure where you may find others. Here's the link to the LC9/PM9 image.

ruger LC9 - Calguns.net

You may be able to PM the OP on calgun and find out where he got it.

Please let me know if you find more. Those are really cool.

Hey Pat-inCO! Just found another one while googling "LCR vs. J Frame". Not sure why they decided to compare the LCR to the Solo, but hey, it's still pretty neat.
