    Default New CW380

    I picked my cw380 up at my FFL today. I then stopped at the range. I fired 50 Remington UMC through it with no malfunctions. Then I fired 14 Underwood 65 grain extreme Defenders through it, again, with no hiccups. This gun shoots very well. I am very pleased with its performance. I have a DeSantis Nemesis holster for it. And 5 extra magazines.

    I bought a CW380 a week or so ago. I cleaned it and lubed it and went to the range and fired 200 rounds plus a few HP's that I will carry for defense. The gun functioned without any type of malfunction. I am very happy with the gun, much easier to carry and shoots like a dream. Hope you have the same experience with yours.

    Thanks Ken43. I run my guns pretty wet, and I'm not one that tries five or six different types of ammo. For the range I have the Remington UMC and for SD I have the Underwood Xtreme Defender. Good luck with yours too.

    I picked up 500 rounds of Herters for my CW380. It is very dirty. I still put 100 rounds through it without any trouble. Back to PMC Bronze or Independance for the range. Cheaper isn't always worth the few pennies.

    I bought a CW380 about a month ago.

    i cleaned it, put some rounds through it, cleaned it again, put more rounds through it.

    240 rounds total, 54 "failure to return to battery" issues. 3 different brands of range ammo. Federal, Winchester, and the worst one, Remington.

    i sent it back to Kahr. They polished the extractor. I was highly skeptical. However, I put 84 rounds through it today with no issues, even with the Remington.

    What defensive ammo have you tried without any issues?

    Hornady Critical Defense - seems to work flawlessly for everybody. Personally, I also like Ruger ARX.

    Herters isn't that dirty. If you really want to try some dirty ammo pick up a box or two of PPU. It also makes a pretty good flamethrower-sized flash.

    Monarch is a pretty good soot generator, but it has run very well in my LCP and CT380.

    By the way, I also noticed a few more things when cleaning my CW380 after the return to the factory.

    it was much easier to remove and reinsert the takedown pin. Didn't need to use a tool, just my finger.

    The slide spring was much easier to reinstall.

    The magazine release button was easier to push. Originally, I had to use my left thumb while holding the gun in my right hand to engage.

    No mention on the work-order on any of this.

    I use Hornady 90 gr. XTP for defense.
