The 3.24" barrel has conventional rifling with a 1:16.38 right hand twist. Sights are drift-adjustable white bar-dot combat rear sight and pinned in polymer front sight.

HS-Custom of Joplin, MO, is noted for their custom handgun work. HS did their “Service” package on this CM45 — initial inspection, then a series of reliability enhancements. These include testing the fit and function of the basic assemblies, a street-trigger hone and internal polishing, de-burring, etc. as required. The result is a modestly enhanced gun, adhering to stock mode, assuring reliability in the street and the real world.

The gun was then Cerakoted by HS in Tungsten and Armor Black, offering a serious, definitive look to this tidy .45 ACP package! The CM45 costs $528. Add $228 for Cerakoting and $450 for gunsmithing. The extra work done to the gun increases its total value to over $1,200!

With an OAL of 11.5", the Spartan-Harsey Fighter integrates the blade of a U.S. military combat/utility knife with a contoured handle. The 6.125" spear-point blade made of 1095 Cro-Van steel with a black powder coat has a 56-58 HRC hardness rating.

If you’re a longtime reader of GUNS or American Handgunner, or both, then you’ve come across many stories about Smith & Wesson. Literally thousands of their guns have been featured on the cover and inside pages of these two magazines. Read these stories again in the Best of Smith & Wesson 2010–2019, one of the prizes in this giveaway.

Kahr Arms’ CM45 plus a Spartan Blades knife and the Best of Smith & Wesson book are amazing prizes that can be yours if you enter the giveaway.
