    Default Firing pin protrusion

    My PM9 black has .028" firing pin protrusion and my other three 9mm Kahr's have .032". I have several Glocks that have .042" protusion. Is there a SAAMI spec for auto pistols? Anyone know what the Kahr spec is?
    I cleaned the channel of the .028" PM9 and it did not change.

    Are you having an issue with your gun? I think SAAMI specs are only for ammunition and chambers. Not an expert on this topic but I think I am correct.

    How are you measuring the protrusion?

    No issues but it is my full time carry gun and that it has less protrusion than my other Kahrs I have some concerns. I am measuring with feelers guage. I will get a guage from Midway on my next order.

    ur not having one issue then stop worry about what other guns have. the designs are not all alike and there is no SAAMI specks for what u are referring to. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

    Just shoot it like u stole it...

    I guess you may be right but because it is my carry gun I would like to be sure. I will call Kahr and try to get their spec. I would think all Kahr 9mms should be the same even all calibers are the same.

    I would think that would be right also, U might just have them also send you a new striker firing pin. Keep us posted. I doubt if you will get any specs from kahr though.

    I got a reply this morning. They said if no light strikes not to worry about it.
    That makes me think it is never an issue unless it chips or breaks.
    I think I am OK and it will not wear shorter.

    HELPS ANY i HAVE 24,750 ROUNDS through my pM9 and still the original striker pin, and still the original extractor, and extractor spring, and original ejector. I replaced the standard striker spring with the wolffs 5# striker spring many thousands of rounds ago.. Also the original slide lock lever little springs on the left side of the grip.

    If one is careful in his cleaning techniques, one should never have to replace any of the above IMO...

    there must be a spec. i hope someone finds out. i suspect this may be part of the light-strikes problems people are having.
