Where can I Buy the Tiffany Blue Kahr Arms PM9?

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.

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.

Find Kilo Guns on Facebook.

    1. You can purchase a PM9 through Cheaper Than Dirt!’s website. Than have a professional such as J&L Gunsmithing (757) 567-5993 do the Cerakote work. ~ Dave Dolbee

  1. This caught my eye and pulled me in. I’m looking at, .380 and 9mm both…This would be awesome and classy! I’m a 63 yr old grandma, and I can’t wait to get them, bling them out, and get targets set. Thanks for the info!

    1. Nancy, I am 69, and am well acquainted with guns; yrs ago in a Black powder gun club, I belonged to; My proudest moment was with a Flintlock rifle, and was the only woman in the club that ever shot the metal silhouette,and few men, 200 yrs away, the crowd went nuts, like the Raider’s made a touch down!! I did have to do the math on the mini cannon bullet to shoot high and how much the ball was going to drop and hit the target. The silhouette made of thick metal, was human size extra. I was as shocked as everyone else, but elated !! I have good aim, and I was in my 40’s. You looking for a hand gun, just reminded me that us women need to arm ourselves in a frightening world of evil acts. I am looking also, a 9mm I think will do. I adore this beautiful gun and it’s color. “The cool feel of steel” , is my motto !! Love to hear from you as a fellow older woman, seeking to buy our protection and hobby item. hiphopsmom11@yahoo.com……. not sure I can put my e-mail, if not, approval dept, please only delete that, and leave the rest of the paragraph, approval persons. ? Thank you, Gramma A.

    1. SHOOTER’S LOG WEEKLY, MY ANSWER FOR YOU; If you read the article way at the top, he tells the story of looking and searching it out. The answers are there ! ………..I DO NOT THINK it is for sale, however read it and see what you think about his searching for it, and his leads to, how to !! Gramma A.

    2. My own answer correction for the person looking for the gun, that I just wrote to right above me, it was a woman who wrote the article and not a man, sorry. Suzanne Wiley is her name. Just go to the top here on this page and read the article. Hope it helps. Gramma A.

  2. I will be purchasing a 380 or maybe a 9 by December. As we move to CA in late December. Would love to have one in purple (purple for platelets – dx’d ITP in 2007) as with this disorder, even minor assault could cost me my life…more reason I am always aware and cautious of my surroundings. Better to be prepared at any case.

  3. Thanks a bunch for all your research and information. I didn’t think it was something that Tiffany would sell but definitely caught my eye! I will be making use of Wyatt at Kilo guns! Thanks again!!!

    1. Tiffany & Company did in fact produce beautiful firearms, intricate, embellished details ..but they stopped doing in the early 1900s 1808-1905?, and they are way more beautiful than that robins egg blue nine..

  4. 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!

  5. 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!

  6. 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.

  7. 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%)

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