    Default Low profile Slide Stop - P380

    New owner to a Kahr P380 (actually will be getting it this Saturday), and am pretty excited. One thing I've never liked about the Kahrs is the large slide stop. I'm wondering if anyone has ever removed material to make it lower profile (i'm thinking of a glock extended slide stop). Would this affect any functionality of the stop, or is this something worth trying. My plan would be to order an extra stop and try the reprofiling on it.

    Thanks

    Heres the aftermath of my modification on my PM45.

    Your most welcome. I think you can look up Jocko's custom PM9 and see how he did his also. I think he did his own on that one also. A few others have done it as well.
    Not sure why they make them so big and bulky myself. I kept hitting it with my thumb but no longer have that problem after knockin off the corners.

    If my PM45 weren't DLC, I would do that to the darned magazine release... that's the thing that bothers me. The slide release lever is no problem.

    bg6491. Extremely nice work. IMO changes the entire looks of the gun and it certainly needs not be any bigger than what you ended up with. Nice job..

    I am thinking of going a little more drastic, but it may be removing too much material. What do you guys think?
