Modified My CM9 Follower
Modified the magazine follower today, thanks to the help from Jocko and
gb6491, pointing me to the right sticky!
First I took the magazine apart, and inserted the empty mag case into the CM9. With the CM9's slide off, I ran the mag spring with the follower into the magazine as I looked through the top, sure enough the very top of the radius of the follower, and the liped edge of the follower skirting would make contact with the magazine latch hole. I visually noticed how much of the top of the follower was making contact. I used a very fine sharpie pen, than marked that area. than viewing the follower skirting, with the magazine removed from the CM9. I inserted again the spring and follower to where I could see the skirting through the latch hole of the magazine I marked the skirting from top to bottom with the sharpie and using the square end of the magazine latch hole as a straight edge.
I than removed these two areas very carfully with the bench grinder. than shaped and smoothed those areas with some medium grit sandpaper, than I finished smoothing out these areas with some fine emery paper. I inserted the empty magazine in the CM9, and than inserted the follower and spring, went right to the top of the magazine without catching or snagging on anything.
I am very confident now that the CM9 magazine follower will be trouble free, and looking forward to sending a bunch of rounds down range
I will do this to any additional 6rd. magazines I might order from Kahr.
Just to be on the safe side. The Cm9 will be my primary conceal carry weapon. Right now it is my Ruger LCP .380, but only until I can send 200-300 rds from the CM9 down range
Thanks Jocko for your sticky on prepping these Kahr's and to gb6491 for pointing me to the right thread for this fix.
