    Both of mine work great! I think I read a similar comment about jet engines. Haven't flown anywhere since . . . after all, I read it on the Internet, so it must be true!
    It would be so nice if something made sense for a change.

    It seems that the polishing may have worked there was one feeding problem right at the start after the polishing, but now with over 150 rounds through it no more problems thus far!

    Hi All, I'm new to the forum and also have PM40 that had feeding problems since I bought it (used). I found this forum and the spring deal, took it apart, and it was bent. I bent it back as the pic shows (great pic) and it now hand cycles with no issues. I'm going to bring it to the range tomorrow to see if this indeed solved the problem, though I am pretty confident it did. I'm so glad I found this forum, this was very frustrating. I really like the feel of the gun. I'll update ya'll on if this solved the problem, but I just wanted to say "hi" and give a very hopeful "thanks" for this info, and those great pics.

    have u read the kahr tech sectionthe propper prepping thread to also see if my chance ur magazinefollower could be grabbing ont he mag release button at round 2/3. There is a nice explanation on that in that thread and how tocheck for it. Just eliminate all the possqable before that first shoot.

    welcome aboard and let us know how the shoot goes and don't give up, these guys here are sharp. they have walked where u are walking now so they have been there dne that sort of thing..

    Hey Jocko, thanks for pointing me to that thread, I'll check it out. I'm hopeful I'll have everything straightened out tomorrow. From all that I have read, and all the complaints about this weapon, from what i can tell it really comes down to a couple of things, and the biggest one doesn't seem to be a manufacturing defect, but a problem caused during re-assembly (ie, the spring issue). I'm really hoping this can be a reliable CC piece. I'll post an update if I get a chance to shoot tomorrow (gonna try to sneak out around lunchtime....).

    I couldn't be happier! The little PM40 performed excellent! No issues whatsoever. I'm very happy I found this forum with the pics and explanation of the slide lock spring and the prepping suggestions. Now I'm off to clean it, so I'll take a look at the lubing chart I hear so much about.

    Thanks again, this piece looks like it will do exactly what I want it to do.
