P380 Heading Back to Kahr
Bummer. I've got 750 rounds through this gun but still can't get it work just right. I had premature lock backs when I first got it which I fixed by filing the slide stop. Unfortunately it won't lock back on an empty mag any more. I was getting frequent failure to extracts, but those went away after about round 600. I'm still getting them intermittently however, so I've decided that I can't devote the ammo or time to fixing it on my own. It's time to let the factory have a try.
I've heard that turnaround is fast though, so hopefully it won't take too long.
Been thinking about getting one myself, wife has the CW-9 and we love it. Have you heard of others having this issue?
On your FTE's....
Was is a stove pipe, or was the case parallel to the barrel, primer end forward at about 2 o'clock? If fired 125 rnds through my new one yesterday, and I had 3 FTEs like that. Two were with BVAC JHP's, and the third with a Rem green box FMJ. It didn't like to feed WWB once or twice, and I had one premature lock back. BTW, that was all in the first 75 rnds––no probs in the last 50.
I'm going to put at least another 100 rnds through it, and probably carry Pow'R Ball in it like my PM9.
That is why I like to rack the slide 500 times before I shoot a new gun. It's a cheaper that using up 500 rounds. I helps to get the shavings off the new polymer slide.
I have similar problem with CW40, with heavier loads the slide locks back and doesn't strips next round. The slide's stop spring was mangled by previous owner. I was able to bent the spring so it engages the slide stop which have to be inserted gently not to bend the spring end. Will go to the range again soon.
To say the truth I don't know how this little gun holds together with this caliber and doesn't disintegrate to pieces
my MK40 went to kahr for repair after some factory Am Eagle ammo blew out the extractor. 4 days after i Fedex'd it to them (using the shipping label they sent me) a Kahr gunsmith called me up to tell me what he did the problem was, what he did to fix it and asked me if I had any questions. A few days after that the gun was back home. First rate support!
