    Default Anyone else have a 9mm striker break?

    I just broke my second one on my Kahr PM9 I've had since 2013. The first time was two years ago and I figured it was just normal wear and tear, but now I am not so sure.

    I do dry fire a good bit (about 150-250 dry fires per week by my very rough estimate), but always with snap caps. I am going to have Kahr take a look at it, but in the meantime I was wondering if anyone else has had this issue and if anyone knows of robust aftermarket 9mm strikers. Thanks.

    I have not however I will say I seldom dry fire a striker type gun, too me it seems not a good practice. I fully understand why people do dry fire practice.

    No striker problems with my CM9 after 1400 rounds and a few hundred dry fires.

    The one and only problem with my CM9 was a broken striker with less than 500 rds thru it. Sent it to Kahr...replaced and sent back to me ...still working good after a few 1000 rds and is my EDC.

    HankHill.....I use the CM9....everyday carry-right hand jeans pocket. I have fired probably 60 rounds total. My serial number is IO0533-so not sure about the mfg. date -probably 2011 or 2012. Purchased mine about a year ago. My CM is completely original with no mods. I have dry fired without any snap cap protection and I couldn't attest to how may times, but I would say maybe 3 or 4 hundred times plus what ever times for field striping. No problems of any kind. My local gunshop had my gun in the showcase several years before I finally bought it. I can recall seeing it there while browsing ,even handling it. Sure glad that it didn't get away from me.

    My 380 striker broke early on, but I have had no problem with the 9.
