Kahr® to Sponsor Long-Range Shooting Contest

October 1, 2014

Kahr Long Range Shooting Video Contest

Pomona, NY – If you believe that you have earned bragging rights with your long-range shooting skills, now is the time to share it with YouTube fans. Kahr Firearms Group invites all shooters, 18-years or older, to participate in the Kahr 2014 YouTube Video Long-Range Shooting Contest. Bragging rights may only earn a nice pat on the back, but the grand prize for this YouTube contest is worth far more. Kahr is offering the winner $5,000 in value on any Kahr Firearms Group products which includes; Kahr, Magnum Research and Auto-Ordnance.

“Our goal of this shooting contest is to dispel the myth that accuracy is sacrificed in exchange for a smaller sized pistol, like that found in our concealed carry product line.” stated Justin Moon, CEO of Kahr Firearms Group. “Given the tight tolerances to which all Kahr pistols are manufactured, Kahr pistols are extremely accurate at ranges even out beyond that which pistols are generally fired. I have been shooting Kahr pistols for more than 20 years, and even at more than 100 yards, the accuracy and the groupings are impressive. I feel confident that the videos will more than demonstrate just how effective Kahr firearms are.”

In support of the universe of Kahr fans, Kahr Firearms Group invites shooting enthusiasts to submit a video of them shooting any Kahr pistol at 100 yards or more and then posting it to YouTube. Next, provide a URL link directly to Kahr and the winner will be determined by the video that has garnered the most views. The contest period runs November 1, 2014 through December 31, 2014 and the winner will be announced on January 6, 2015.

The Long-Range Shooting Contest video must be no longer than 30-seconds to 3-minutes in length, and must be original footage. The footage must demonstrate shooting at 100-yards, exclusively using a Kahr pistol. Check the Kahr website at www.kahr.com/videocontest.asp for a complete list of contest rules.

Kahr® Firearms Group Breaks New Ground

June 2, 2014

Pomona, NY – A crowd of over 180 people shared in the celebration on Thursday, May 29th of the official ground-breaking ceremony of the Kahr Firearms Group new headquarters in Blooming Grove Township of Pike County Pennsylvania located in the Pocono region of the state. Justin Moon, CEO, Kahr Firearms Group welcomed Pennsylvania Lt. Governor Jim Cawley to the event which also included a number of key state officials.

Early last year, Kahr made the key decision to move the headquarters out of New York and move to the more gun-friendly state of Pennsylvania. The purchase included 620 acres of prime commercial real estate from the Pike County Industrial Park Development Group. The ground-breaking ceremony christens the first step in the multi-phased relocation. The corporate offices and the research and development departments will be the first to be relocated. When the second phase commences, manufacturing operations will be expanded to the Pike County location to meet the increasing manufacturing demands for Kahr Firearms Group products.

“We are just a few months into the initial construction phase of our new corporate headquarters, and already the support we are receiving from the Pike County Industrial Park Development Group, the local community, and even Governor Corbett has been extremely welcoming,” stated VP of Marketing and Sales, Frank Harris. “It clearly demonstrates how eager the state of Pennsylvania is to bring job opportunities to the citizens of the state, while also supporting our right to manufacture firearms.”

The move to Pennsylvania will make for a far more cohesive relationship between the firearms manufacturer and the State than what they have experienced in New York. As Kahr Firearms Group expands over the next few years, they will reach out to the community with the addition of employment opportunities.

Wild Things in Wild Places: Kahr® Firearms Group Welcomes new Tenant in PA

Pomona, NY – It is the type of story that you just don't hear very often. As land development eats away at wildlife habitat, chasing animals away from areas they consider to be home, one company is sharing their new headquarters property with the existing wildlife.

At the end of March, as Kahr Firearms Group was breaking ground on their new headquarters in Pike County, Pennsylvania, it was discovered that the 620 acre parcel was home to a female black bear and her cub. The bear den was located just 400 yards from where the crew was about to begin with the excavation for the new Kahr Firearms Group offices.

The construction crew notified Kahr, and the company immediately reached out to the Pennsylvania Game Commission for some assistance. When the game wardens arrived, they sedated the sow in order to exam her, check her vital statistics, and then tag her with a tracking collar. Only one cub was in the den and the game wardens determined that based on the size of the cub and the weight of the sow, that the bear likely had some health issues during hibernation. When the examination was complete, the bear cub and the sow were determined to be healthy and the game warden turned to Kahr Firearms Group owner, Justin Moon, and asked if he wanted the bears removed. “It was an easy decision for me. I felt that the bear and her cub had survived a very harsh winter and the den was their home. I strongly believe that man can cohesively share habitat with animals, so I felt the most respectful decision was to share the property with the bear and her cub.”

The sow and her cub were returned to the den and the decision to stay or move on was left to the 4-legged tenant on whether or not she and her cub want to stay. Since then, the crew has no additional sightings of the bears, but, everyone is hoping that they stick around and enjoy their new neighbors.

Don’t you love a story with a happy ending?

The finger rest extension on the 6 round magazine is done in a Cerakote coating to match the color of the polymer frame. The slide is machined from a solid billet of tough 420 stainless steel and has an attractive matte finish. The PM9 features a 3" polygonal rifled barrel and has an overall length of 5.3", 4.0" in height, and weighs just 14 oz. with an empty magazine.

Kahr wants other firearms businesses to come to Pike County

April 12, 2014 | By Beth Brelje | The Pocono Record

Ground-breaking in Pike County for the new corporate headquarters of Kahr Firearms Group is likely in May, and a long-range plan for more gun companies is taking shape.

The gun manufacturer bought the long-empty 600-acre Pike County Business Park on Well Road in Blooming Grove for $2 million last year and will move its entire New York operation out of that state to escape what it describes as an unfriendly gun climate there.

“We would like to have a firearms-friendly business park. If other companies want to leave states with more restrictive gun laws, such as Massachusetts, Connecticut and New York, this is a great place,” company spokesman Frank Harris said. “We have lots available, and we would put up buildings. Pike County is a great place with a gun-friendly environment, right off Interstate 84.”

Kahr® Partners with Spyderco® to Introduce the Kahr Delica4

January 6, 2014


Kahr Spyderco Delica4

Pomona, NY – Kahr Firearms Group is proud to introduce the Kahr Spyderco Delica4, a distinctive variation of one of Spyderco's most popular folding knives available exclusively through Kahr.

Created by self-defense authority Michael Janich, the Kahr signature Delica4 offers Kahr its own unique design by combining a full-length handle with a compact 2.5" blade. The shorter blade makes it legal in jurisdictions with strict blade-length limitations without sacrificing leverage, control, or cutting power.

The Kahr Delica4 features a stonewashed VG-10 stainless steel blade with a smooth thumb ramp. The sturdy back lock mechanism locks the blade in place when open, and includes a Boye Dent relief cut to prevent unintentional lock release. The Trademark Round Hole™ found on all Spyderco blades ensures quick, positive, one-handed opening. Other features include the Bi-Directional Textured™ handle scales injection molded from fiberglass-reinforced nylon and skeletonized stainless steel liners that reduce the overall weight of the knife to just 2.5 ounces.

The perfect companion to Kahr's compact pistols, the Kahr Delica4 is also designed to maximize its concealment properties. It is offered in three discreet handle colors — black, khaki, and denim-blue — to blend discreetly with common pant colors. In addition, the blade, four-position pocket clip, and all other hardware feature a non-reflective stonewashed finish.

The Kahr Spyderco Delica4 is available through Kahr Arms at www.kahr.com and select Kahr dealers and distributors. The MSRP is $99.
