    Once a Kahr is broken in, I think this describes any of them, no matter whether they have the older, longer trigger or today's normal Elite trigger.

    I have several broken plastic mag catches and two good ones that I replaced with steel catches as soon as I learned here that they were available. T think they were the weakest point of early P9s...

    A DLC finish with night sights is the way I would go if I were buying a K9 now.

    I think so. Since I bought my Elite solely for the shorter trigger when I bought mine some time ago, now I would not buy an Elite. I prefer the DLC finish.

    Since Kahr sells them for new dovetail cuts, it seems likely. If your PM9 has the new cuts, it should fit. See...

    For a time, the Elite K9s were the only K9s with the shorter "elite" trigger, about 3/4ths the trigger travel of the others. The others had a longer travel that was specified by the New York Police...

    If this helps, stainless Kahr grip screws are identical to 1911 grip screws. Depending on the thickness of the Kahr grip, you may need to use shorter thin grip or longer standard length 1911 screws....

    I have never done this, but, out of curiosity, I tried to move the pin holding the extractor rearward by inserting a tiny screwdriver between the pin and the extractor. While I did not remove the...

    Neither my K9 nor my previous MK9 and MK40 have ever shown problems from carry. A carry weapon should be inspected regularly. Being stainless, I doubt you would ever have a surface problem that...

    I have two of these, a stainless model and a lighter alloy frame model. I have not shot either in years, but shot the heavier model with very good accuracy years ago. Blowback designs like this are...

    I owned a P32 and sold it about 15 years ago when I got a P3AT. I did this because everything I read indicated that a .380 round was about 50% more powerful than a .32 ACP. This reflected...

    Polishing benefits some pistols more than others, but most pistols benefit from some polishing of moving parts. I agree with the use of this polishing tip, which fits a 9mm chamber fairly well. I...

    An easy, if crude, fix is to apply rubberized skateboard tape or Talon Grip material to the sides of the slide. I did this years ago on a Kel-Tec 3AT, a roughly similar size .380, which had very...

    I think this is Kahr's standard operating procedure and they announce it somewhere. For them, parts are cheap and gunsmith time is expensive, so they are biased in favor of replacing parts that may...

    I was going to make this same point, but dsk beat me to it and likely did a better job than I would have. John Browning invented the .380 and it served for a long time in serious police and military...

    The principal benefit of a steel or tungsten guide rod is the added weight at the front for muzzle rise and recoil reduction. These benefits are probably greatest in competition that involve fast...
