Converting Old Browning Model A-5s

Glock Mods: An M1911 Man Branches Out

I’ve worked with the 1911 for many years, and sometimes that experience has been helpful with other pistols, such as the Browning Hi-Power, for example. Sometimes the differences between pistols are hard to spot, and other times we find similarities between handguns that at first seem very different. Another example: If you can work on the Savage 1910, you can work on the Astra 400, and you won’t be confused by the H&K P7M8. But the Glock? Ah, the Glock is an altogether different creature. Sometimes my 1911-based reasoning produces positive results with the Glock, and other times it does not. With the Glock so popular with law-enforcement and now proving itself in competition—winning the first top-class award at IPSC—we’re going to see more and more Glocks turned in for improvement. And at the very least, we should be familiar with the similarities and the differences between the Glock and “old Slabsides.”

Both the new CT4043 and the CT4543 feature full-size polymer frames with stainless-steel slides and white bar-dot sight configurations. Both models feature 7+1 capacities and ship with one 7-round stainless-steel magazine.

The CT4043 has a 4-inch barrel, overall length of 6.5 inches, height of 5.13 inches, and a slide width of 0.94 inches. It weighs 21.8 oz. with a magazine.

The CT4543 has a barrel length of 4.04 inches, overall length of 6.57 inches, height of 5.25 inches, and a slide width of 1.01 inches. It weighs 23.7 oz. with the magazine.

The two models will retail at $499 for both .40 S&W and .45 ACP configurations. Both the CT4043 and CT4543 feature Kahr’s seven patents. CT-Series versions of the T9, TP40 and TP45 are expected to debut later in 2014.

The only Kahr pistol I own is a PM9 that I use as a back-up piece to whatever full size pistol that might be riding on my right hip. The PM9 is a quality piece that did, however, require a break-in period of a couple hundred rounds. If I was to judge the potential of these two items, in this article, based on my PM9, I'd likely say that they will be fairly good pieces for the price. Now, with that said, as many are aware, I am a loyal fan of SIG Sauer pistols, and I am not likely to be enticed into one of these Kahrs as a replacement.
