Then on my way to coffee I drop it off at the pist office and pay them $5 to ship the part to u and a week later u get the package, dripping in now thawed raw spoiled fish that i didn't know was in that box when I wraped ur new tie and ur wifes new blouse u had ordered for Easter weekend. Just sayin U want cheap, I can do that.

    Default that spring..

    got my stuff today. No parts numbers on the packages to help me verify correctness. Boy; that new recoil spring is like 5 inches long (1995 K9), gonna be a challenge to compress it into place.
    Old, Jan 1995 (2nd-3rd hand) pristine K9 w/existing spring functioning fantastic with standard pressure stuff. "If it ain't broke" may apply? See no physical indications of wear or anything being hammered so?

    count the coils on each, they should be the same..
    . My PM9 has over 34,000+ rounds through it, and runs much better than an illegal trying to get across our border

    When I replaced the spring in my K9 the first 2 times I tried I launched it across the room. Once it's in, go shoot it and it will take a set pretty quickly.
    After a couple hundred rounds it will be as easy as the old one to install.

    That notch in the rail is supposed to be there

    "Laws that forbid the carrying of arms disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man."

    I'm sorry but; $10.50 shipping, for 1 set of grips, 4 little screws and a spring? Barely a handful. Would fit nicely into one of those video tape sized USPS priority boxes and been here in 2-3 days for about $5.25.
    Maybe it's coming in a 2' X 2' box. Who knows? It's not like it's anything important, it's the rampant stupidty so prevelant today. Everything is just going too fast and when S--t falls off the truck, who cares.

    And about that tracking; what good is it....shipped last Friday, last update Saturday from same state. I suppose I will see it before Fedex lets me know that it has even left the depot down the road from Kahr. Cost savings measures for Fedex and Kahr, or simply just another profit option.

    I'm getting old and more cross by the day. What phase is the moon in anyway? :+)
    I have learned, common sense is not that common. Bring back the horse and buggy!

    I went back to the Kahr site and ran a few more items all the way to checkout...same story. Fedex only option. Whaaaa! :+0

    Just waitin' for that next asteroid/meteorite! It was good enough for the dinosaurs!
    The older you get the faster time passes by. Our problem is that we expect the same kind of service that we gave. I was taught to under promise and over deliver. I guess that philosophy has gone out the window. What we have today is a philosophy of when I get around to it if at all. I'm going to check to see which side of the bed I got out of now. I seem a little grumpy, too.
