    Probably not a pocket rocket, but they do have a 380...https://www.armscor.com/firearms/bbr...baby-rock-380/
    You'll see some complaints here: https://www.1911forum.com/forums/rock-island-armory.64/

    Talking 1911s, brings .4ACP to mind...I believe Kahr's 45ACP guns are very completive in their market niche (especially against other poly frame guns of the same ilk). It's sad that they seem to be the red headed-step child in the scheme of things at Kahr. Come on man, at least give them flat metal baseplates.

And all over a few extra rounds that many do not care about anyway. And then you have the same guy that constantly wants to start a damn caliber war. Maybe a forum will come out for folks that truly love the guns. This place is not the place it use to be. For those that want a double stack 9mm, go buy one for God sake, do us all a favor and go someone else to bash Kahr. We got your message loud and clear!

They are relentless, the same person telling us how great the Pico and Apx are over and over. What a shame because Kahr's are nice firearms. And all over a few underpowered .380 rds. Maybe a forum will come out for folks that truly drool over the Pico. For those that want an underpowered firearm, go buy one for god sake., do us all a favor and go somewhere else to espouse the plastic Pico. We got your message loud and clear.

    Yes, flat METAL bases would be nice! I've bought all kinds of followers and bases and ruined at least a few Kahr ones trying to make them flatter, or fit the Kahr .45 mags.

    I hate the regular capacity Kahr .45 bases... too thick or bulky, and waste a possible 1-round larger capacity.

    I'm pretty sure that Kahr has been selling all the pistols they can produce. And that was the case over a year ago too. I'm also pretty sure that if they started to get stuck with P9's that won't move, they have enough profit margin to reduce the price to where they will sell.

    But I have to say that I would love to see the P9 with a slightly thicker grip and staggered mag like the Shield. I still prefer to shoot the K9 rather than the P9, and it's not because of the weight. It's the grip. If you compare the grip of the Shield with that of the K9, they're about the same thickness - no, actually the K9 grip is a ltitle thicker....and to me, it is perfect. Seems to me that there should be no reason that the P9 grip couldn't be the same, and add another round or two. I don't care much about the extra rounds, but a P9 with a slightly more hand-filling grip without losing the low bore axis, stellar accuracy, and excellent trigger would make me buy another Kahr or two. But until then....I'm good.

    Speaking of those last three points....Kahr still has the others beat. I've looked hard at these newer offerings, but I ain't buyin' them either - more rounds be damned.

    I see the usual pay over 500 shouldn't require a break in period. I chuckle. Every gun needs a break in. Kahr is one of the few that's actually up front about it. Oh well. Most shooters need a break in too, some more than others.

    Break-in is fun, who wouldn’t want an excuse to shoot lots of ammo through a new gun?

    The Kahr-branded Hogue wood grips on the K9 are a bit thicker, still, than the K9 OEM rubber grips, and they (the wood grips) make the K9 perfect for me for CC-ing and shooting.
