Agree on the trigger. I think the Elite trigger is now on all their pistols.That K40 was my first "serious" caliber gun that I bought for myself, way back in 1995. It was my EDC for many years. It's heavy for it's capacity, but no too heavy to carry comfortably and it shoots so nice! The extended ported barrel makes a small but noticeable difference in muzzle flip. That gun just fits my hand beautifully. And the Elite trigger is soooooo smooth! It's one of the last guns I'd ever part with.
Kahr is definitely not a brand with a huge accessory market. Where did you get that extended/ported barrel?My K40 was made before the Elite series. So I upgraded the trigger to the Elite, and polished the slide flats to give it a 2-tone polished/matte finish. Then I added the beautiful checkered wood grips with stainless hex grip screws, and the extended ported barrel. It was my EDC for 15 years. With 7 in the gun and 7 in the spare mag, I never felt under-gunned.

My 'standard' K9 has the older trigger. Shortening the travel by 1/8 inch is not a big deal to me but I may upgrade that to the Elite sometime down the road.
