    Yikes. I have two PT-111s that I bought at the same time, and both have the exact same issue (no extraction and double-feeds). I sent them back to Taurus in the same package. I don't care when I get...

    I reduced the extractor tension in my P380 by clipping about three coils off the spring. Not saying that's the best course of action, but it worked for me. I also slightly rounded the bottom edge of...

    I can't comment on the CW40, but with the CW380 you mostly need to keep an eye on the springs, striker, and extractor. Also keep an eye on the frame where the guide rod contacts it during recoil as...

    Both the front and rear sights on my P380 came out easily when I removed them to sandblast my slide, and in fact after I put them back on they were a loose fit in the dovetails afterward and I had to...

    If you look back at all of my posts you'll see I've become quite an expert in Kahrs and light firing pin strikes. I literally spent several years trying to solve a persistent LFPS issue with my P380,...

    In the old days the .32 version of the Colt Pocket Hammerless outsold the .380 version better than two to one. One round more capacity, less recoil, and the .32ACP and .380 FMJ rounds are nearly...

    When I had mine I don't think the LEM trigger was available yet, otherwise I'd have changed it out for sure. Instead I carried mine cocked n' locked just like a 1911.

    I once had a USPc in .40 like the OP's, but all black. Aside from the atrocious DA trigger pull it was an excellent firearm, and very manageable with .40 defense loads. I sorta wish I still had it.

    I'm less worried about extractor problems than I am light firing pin strikes, which have long plagued my P380 and are a lot harder to solve. Last week at the range I had another one, although it...

    The bottom edge on mine (purchased around 2013) was sharp and square on the bottom. I immediately knew that was a bad idea so I slightly rounded it before I even fired the first round through mine.

    I wish Kahrs had "snake scale" style cocking grooves similar to Smith & Wesson. Those are really aggressive and make it easy to retract the slide even if your hands are wet.
