    Sorry to hear that a new extractor didn’t solve the problem. Have you examined the chamber. I’d be surprised if there was a problem but you might want to try the “plunk test” to see if the cartridges go in and out properly. The plunk test is where you drop the cartridge into the barrel. It should drop freely and the head should be even with the hood.

    Mine light strikes S&B ammo. They made a change to the primers or their process a few years back. When their primers stopped having the red seal around them, the light strikes started.

    Thanks for that info. I’ve had a couple of light strikes with their 9mm over the last year or so with my reliable handguns so that kinda explains it.
    The only thing better than having all the guns and ammo you'd ever need would be being able to shoot it all off the back porch.

    Was the p380 even produced in 2007 or 2008? Mine is an RAxxxx from the first production run with a BOD of 2010.

    I checked the "wayback machine" and found mention of them (after following a "new model" link) being shipped in December 2008

    Thanks kind of interesting. Purchased my RAxxxx new 5/2010. Kahr said BOD 2/2010, end of first production run when the tooling was worn out. Just kidding!!
