    Default Weird Firing Pin Indentation

    Someone posted these pictures on another forum (CM9) and was curious as to the cause of the strange shape of the indentations. Can any offer any advise?

    Completely normal. I call it primer smear. I think its mentioned in the manual and in the FAQ's on the website.

    The case is moving before the striker gets out of the way in a nut shell.

    Doesn't hurt a thing.
    Due to the substantial increase in ammo cost you can no longer expect a warning shot!

    what B said

    that's typical of most striker fired pistols that I've seen.

    Nothing out of the ordinary

    Perfectly normal for every Kahr.

    Open that little book that comes with every Kahr and you'll read the same. Oh, the "crimped" casing is also normal for a Kahr, too.

    Yes. Very characteristic of a striker-fired gun. The Kahr owners manual even addresses that.
    I'll admit---I'm trigger happy

    What? Read the manual? Perish the thought.

    The notch is supposed to be there as well as the bulge at the front of the frame!

    indeed just a waste of money on kahrs part..
    . My PM9 has over 32,000+ rounds through it, and runs much better than an illegal trying to get across our border

    The guy did finally open up his manual and found the reference to the issue and cause.

    LOL. We like a person to take the initiative. Especially after we beat him up about it.
