Pomona, NY– There was quite a buzz at the 2015 SHOT Show in Las Vegas in January, and a lot of that excitement was due to the unveiling of the new Gen2 Kahr Premium Series pistols. A year ago, the engineers at Kahr took a look at their existing premium line and decided to start with the basics, but then re-engineered it to give it a refreshing new look. The result is a new design that is sleeker and more tactical in appearance than their existing premium models.
The new Gen2 Premium pistols speak to the quality, accuracy and 100% made in the USA product that has always been Kahr’s mission. With even tighter tolerances and so many upgrades, it truly is the second generation of Kahr pistols.
