    Is this conversation still going on?

    There have been multiple reports of broken 380 strikers on this forum. Lakeline responded by selling a beefier striker which you can now also buy directly from Kahr.

    muggsy: Let's face it, being shot by a .380 will ruin anyone's day.

    It indeed has been a while since I've seen a broken striker on this board. I think the horse is dead. We can stop beating it now.

    Not to keep beating the horse, but is this problem specific to the .380 Kahrs, or all of them?

    Mostly the 380's. Not heard of issues with any of the others.

    I would immediately dump both pistols and move on to something more reliable .

    Look hard at the Sig P365.

    I wouldn't dump anything.

    I love my P365, but the 365 has had it's share of problems.

    Broken strikers being one of those problems. Sig has had 3 iterations of strikers for this gun. The most recent seems promising, and also helps eliminate primer drag.

    Lightning Strike also makes an aftermarket striker that is not a MIM piece, but it's like a hundred bucks - vs the 30 something for a 380 Lakeline striker. Interestingly enough, Kahr actually sells that Lakeline striker on their website.

    My P365 came with a dead tritium vial on the rear sight. Sig sent me a new set of sights in a few days though, and also offered to install them if I sent them the slide. The dead sight issue persists for new 365's even today.

    Other failures for the P365 that have been reported include broken trigger return springs, defective recoil spring assemblies, extractor issues, magazine follower issues, and persistent rust issues on the sights and mag release. New, un-purchased guns in gun shops have been reported to have rust on them, even though they just recently arrived.

    These are just some of the more common problems, but like ANYTHING made by man, nothing is perfect.
