Thread: Cw380 going back to kahr

  1. #1

    Default Cw380 going back to kahr

    Finally going to send it back, just canít bet my life on it...500 rounds and still having failure to feed/return to battery with the occasional failure to reset trigger with round in chamber and sometimes a lock back with rounds in magazine....

    i really want to like this gun, but until it works, itís one shot and then itís a rock

    Have you tried doing the extractor mods mentioned here in several threads?

    This isn't a matter of idle curiosity, btw...I hope to shoot my new P380 in a week or so after I take the pistol home and do the recommended break-ins, and I'm wondering if I'll have to drum up the courage to work on the extractor.

    You might as well tune up the extractor. If you read what it's all about, you'll do it, get it right, and be a happy man. If you get it wrong, who cares? A plunger and an extractor can't be more than ten or twenty bucks. That's a small price to pay for an education.

    Didnít try to fix it yet, was done spending money on ammo trying to break it in. I figured I would have kahr fix it since they paid for shipping and they obviously know there is a problem...

    if if they send it back and it still doesnít work, then I will try the extractor mod.

    for now, itís on them...I really want to like this gun since it fills a niche, but until itís right, I will stick to my Glock 26

    I purchased a new extractor from Kahr and received today. The extractor has been reshaped with a slight flare on the bottom. It looks like the one in the YouTube video. About $20 delivered.
    FYI

    So...Kahr is shipping extractors that have the mods already done? Interesting....

    Do you happen to have a link to that video you are referencing?

    I havenít had a chance to check the entire extractor overall measurements. The rear pin was around 0.12 on the new one. The extractor in my P380 is also 0.12.

    Yes, the radius'ing of the extractor hook is the current mod that has proven to be the most reliable, more so than the narrowing of the trunion that is in the stickied thread.
    The trunion mod has caused some extractor breakage, possibly because of bad execution...

    I mentioned the hook mod early/often in the stickied thread but was poopoo'ed by the OP, but it now seems to be the "factory fix"
    Confirmation of factory fix in post #6:

    I apologize if my post contains the same or similar information as someone who has posted before me.

    My ignore list contains many members who I consider scenters and/or agitators and I do not see/read what they post.
