    Default PM45 Issue?

    Hi, new to forums and new to Kahr. Brand new PM45. 50 rounds shot, and when I cleaned it, I noticed some of the metal on the slide between the recoil spring and barrel ports has broken away. Already secured an RA from Kahr and I'm shipping it back next week, just curious if this is an isolated issue or common with the PM45. Other than that, love it! Very accurate!

    I've never seen that before. Did you inspect it before shooting it? Just wondering if it was already there from the factory. I suspect they would just replace the slide for that one.

    yeah, sure did. Certainly wasn't like that new, and there were small bits of metal that had broken off inside the slide upon disassembly after only 50 rds. That area is just so thin...Thanks for your reply.

    How did your shooting session go? Did you like the way it felt?

    Other than this issue, I love it! 1st .45 (purchased for carry). I found it very easy to shoot for such a large caliber and small frame...I just have to ship it back to them now which is unfortunate. Hopefully they will rectify it for me. Generally speaking, how's there customer service?

    Never seen that before.
    Definitely, to send back.
    Hope things work out.
    What kind of ammo you used?

    I had some early issues with mine but they replaced the upper and everything is fine. Yesterday I was cleaning my PM 45 and noticed a small chip of the of metal from the left guide rail gone. About the size of pen point. I'm going to contact customer support. Let us know how you make out.

    I've had a similar problem w/my PM45. Similar in that the leading edge of the polymer frame where the slide engages [travels] was being eaten up by the metal slide slamming into it with each shot. When cleaning gun after each shooting, I would find small fragments. I finally returned gun to Kahr when a larger piece broke but was still partially attached. Kahr's fix was to remove frame material until they got back to undamaged polymer. Then both frame rails were modified to match. Not convinced the gun was fixed, I haven't shot it since. Since the slide rams into this area with every shot, how much more damage followed by removal/repair before gun reliability is questionable? I'm no gunsmith, but this just isn't right, especially with a high $$$ pistol.
