Where can I Buy the Tiffany Blue Kahr Arms PM9?

By CTD Suzanne published on in Buyers Guide, Firearms, Handguns, How To, Industry News

A picture of a Kahr PM9 pistol with a Tiffany blue frame, packed in a famous Tiffany box with a Tiffany necklace draped over it is making the rounds on social media sites such as Facebook and Instagram. I have seen plenty of comments asking where to get the gun. I understand why. What woman’s smile doesn’t get brighter when handed that distinctive blue box? What’s even better than jewelry? A 9mm inside that rather large Tiffany box. I can see how this picture is going viral right before the holidays.

What’s even better than jewelry? A 9mm inside that rather large Tiffany box.

Feeling highly doubtful the gun actually exists, I did some research—knowing some women will be putting this particular Kahr on the top of their Christmas wish list.

An Internet search led me nowhere, except to see that “Tiffany blue Kahr” is one of the top search terms on Kahr’s website. One of the pictures I saw on Facebook had a CerakoteGunCoatings.com watermark on it, so I started there. I called Cerakote Gun Coatings—a division of NIC Industries, Inc.—a company that makes ceramic firearm coatings and finishes. Matt at Cerakote told me he receives four to five phone calls and e-mail messages a day asking where to get the Kahr. He told me the “Tiffany blue” is not an official color, but one of its clients mixed blue, bright white, Ridgeway blue, and Corvette yellow to color-match the Tiffany blue perfectly.

From there, my search led me to veteran-owned Kilo Guns in Phoenix, Arizona. Wyatt Mahan, gunsmith and owner of Kilo Guns, mixed the Cerakote colors and completely customized the Kahr’s finish with the box and bonus necklace. He created a Walther in the same blue. Tiffany and Co. had nothing to do with the creation of the gun. The jewelry company requests that Wyatt stop engraving the Tiffany and Co. logo on any guns and he cannot provide the box or jewelry—you will have to get those on your own. The box and necklace were props for photos only. —We didn’t see that coming, now did we?

Wyatt has extremely imaginative designs. If Tiffany blue isn’t your thing, he can do much more than just solid colors. The first gun he refinished was a zombie camo pattern for Patriot Ordnance Factory and Hornady. One of my favorites is the cupcake and crossbones design.

Wyatt does not sell the firearms, however he will provide custom refinishing and engraving to your gun’s frame and slide. He tells me he can recreate any pattern or design. In fact, he has a Glock in his shop right now getting a Gucci pattern. A single color process starts at $100.

And that, ladies, is where you get your Kahr or any other gun finished in Tiffany blue. The necklace is up to you!

If your lady must have her new piece finished in Tiffany blue or a fully custom design, contact Wyatt at Kilo guns for a consultation. After all, guns—not diamonds—are a girl’s best friend.

Are you putting a custom-designed, Cerakote-finish handgun on your Christmas list this year? What do you hope Santa brings you? Tell us in the comment section.

    My gf will love this! We’ve been Tiffany shopping recently and I think this will match her engagement ring well.

    Before a shop decides to start selling these, they should know that the Tiffany Blue color is protected as a color trademark and Tiffany is quick to send the lawyers out on that one.

    However, if some enterprising individual wants to do this as a personal project, non commercial of course, I may or may not advise the following:

    Pantone color 1837
    Hex triplet #81D8D0
    sRGBB (r, g, b) (129, 216, 208)
    HSV (h, s, v) (174°, 40%, 85%)

    It’s nice to know you have many other options other than black.
    I’ve seen variations of tan and brown but never seen patterns and colors like that.

    I see this as an excellent way to arm our more vunerable citizens (female). I know many women that are afraid to venture out after sunset because of the very undesirable things that may be waiting outside. This is a very sad state oif affairs we have brought ourselves to but realistic. Now their (our) homes are much less comforting as criminals seem to be more than willing to break someones door or window to gain access to whatever they think they have as right to inside that home.
    Speaking from my own experience I think many of the fair sex shy away from owning a firearm because of the looks of that firearm. I wouldn’t be caught anywhere with one of these green things. If it’s not camo then I will probably pass on it. My better half, on the other hand, would probably find this weapon very pleasing to her eye and the addition of a diamond or two would assure the elimination of steak from my diet for quite awhile or at least until we could get her “protection” paid for. I can live without those steaks in order to have a bit more comfort knowing she would have the means to protect herself if need be.
    Now, for the method of my madness! If i could get her to invest more in protection then maybe she might be a bit more agreeable when I find a toy I cannot live without to add to my collection.
    Bottom line is, this guy finishing up impressive products like this green thing may be on to something more than he realizes. Is there a market for dolled up derringers or comely cannons?
    I can see some enterprising folks getting on this bandwagon! The sooner the better for me cause I need to add another necessary toy to my box and besides my cardoligist says I need to lay off steak for awhile!

    After seeing this photo on Pinterest, I knew I had to have it. However I’m very attached to my black Glock .40 cal so hubby called our gun friend and is having my gun cerakoted in the “Tiffany blue” color on bottom, the top will be a high polish chrome. Can’t wait to see it!
