    Kahr probably uses some form of arbor press, only guessing got nothing to back that up with.

    If Kahr picked up the shipping I'm guessing they will pick up the repair as well, I wouldn't be surprised to see a no charge invoice in the package and hopefully long before 6 weeks.

    I once spoke to a Kahr tech about removing the then-standard K trigger to convert to an Elite trigger. He said I could do it if I had an arbor press. I had never heard of this and had to look it up. I eventually bought an Elite MK9 and K9 for the trigger, despite having no interest in their purely cosmetic features.

It came the next morning accompanied by a Fed Ex shipping label. Great news because when I checked to see what the overnight fee was for a small package it came to $70. Thank you Kahr. Ian Burr, with Kahr, stated the turn around time is 6 weeks. Can't wait to get it back. I expect the repair to cost an hour in labor plus the part cost, very reasonable considering the shipping savings. I was assuming I'd have a local FFL mail the gun for me vis USPS for around $35.

    Good start to a downer of a situation. I hate when a gun breaks.
    Ian is GREAT. I've dealt with him on two repairs,and both times Kahr paid for shipping both ways---and kept my pistols in house a single day. One of them was WAY out of warranty(I bent my slide stop spring and Ian suggested I let them update my old P9 from the plastic pin retainer to a screw retainer) and I didn't have to pay a penny for repair.

    Kahr's customer service is outstanding.

    Agreed. I was only joking about the "hammer size" -- but sometimes it DOES matter!

    I do like that "starter punch" from the 1st page -- I'll have to ask my brother-in-law to make me up a few. I'll bet that sure would have helped on my K9 trigger replacement.
