    It looks to be issues with the plastic slide, not smooth at all but couldn't find another reason as to why I had to hammer the slide off and on. The plastic is crappy but there is a reason it is, an entry level gun at less than $300.

    I really don't think it's the plastic. Again I sometimes have mine seem to lock on and not want to come off.

    It's a matter of getting everything lined up. I sometimes can't get the slide back on too, recoil assembly has to be just right or she won't go.

    Never had to go to the hammer before but there were a few times it was a pretty good looking option.

    Well, if not the plastic, it worked with the hammer. Since then, the slide had come off and on no issue. The happened only after the range time, though getting it back on was a pain, had to use the rubber mallet that day. I am going to the range again today and put some more rounds through it to see how it does. I'm not concerned about its reliability at this point, it does that well enough. Curious as to post shooting.

    Let us know how it goes. It will be interesting if the issue just works itself out.
    The only thing better than having all the guns and ammo you'd ever need would be being able to shoot it all off the back porch.

    I put 100 rounds today through the gun, 50 of WWB 230gr FMJ and 50 rounds of Gold Dot 230gr JHP with no issues. The slide came off and back on without issue as well. Odd but I think it's ready for a back up carry. My primary carries are either the Glock 19 (Gen 3, 4, 5), the new 2.0 M&P Compact or CZ P10C. This gun is more for quick trips to the store or need to carry a gun with light summer clothes. It won't see much range time anymore. At least not like the guns above that have 1,000 to 6000 rounds through them depending on which version. My Gen 4 G19 has over 6000 rounds.

    Another 150 rounds today, 100 230gr FMJ and 50 JHP 230gr. No hiccups, running smooth. Good enough for carry, mainly back-up.

    I normally donít like DAO but the smooth as glass Kahr triggers I love. I short stroke it sometimes, just have to get used to it. I want another Kahr now, 9mm this time.
