    El Paso? They make picante sauce down there don't they? You dip chips and put it on tacos and stuff. Kind a nice to live someplace famous like that I reckon and in Texas to boot.

    You surely (I know, I know, I am serious and don't call me Shirley.) want to try those 1911 mags for function. Some feed and function fine. Many don't lock open when empty, not a big deal to me. Wilson's work perfect in mine but it could be just a lucky match up for me.

    Be patient with Kahr, that PM45 is worth it in the end.

    I received this email from Jay at Kahr today:

    Good morning. We did receive the magazines yesterday and we turned
    them around the same day. The FedEx tracking number is 4598 7504 ****. I
    hope this information helps
    sincerely,

    they turned around the replacements the same day they received the defective magazines, AND sent them 2nd day delivery instead of ground delivery.
    I'm very pleased with this -and am eager to get the new mags. (I'll probably run another 150 rounds or so through the gun this weekend)

    Pretty pleased with Kahr today!

    Sometimes it's a long drawn out ordeal to get one of these polymer Kahrs working properly and reliable for CCW, but it's worth the trouble. I wanted this compact, powerful pistol for CCW, and though it took longer for mine to get into reliable condition(four returns to the mothership and a few overnighted parts), it's still my favorite EDC, though sometimes I still carry my PM9 because it's the smallest and a bit easier to hide.

    It's within a foot of my left knee at my computer desk and ready with 7+1... and a few reloads next to it... Boomer... one-time "Franken-Boomer".

    I only have one Kahr and it's a CW9. I am overall very pleased with it, and have had it for two years...I think that it's great for CCW and I love the ergonomics of the gun. I also have added CT Laserguard to it.

    However, I would hesitate to buy another Kahr because I read so much about problems with various models.

    I would doubt highly that as many problems occur with a G26 or the J-frames. I do own a 442 and don't worry about reliability, even with the purported 'lock' problems that might have occurred with other j-frames.

    However, if S&W were offering the 442 without the IL at the time of my purchase, I would've purchased it in lieu of my version. I do now see that S&W has accommodated the public by offering it without the lock. That was a very smart move on their part, more so from a public relations standpoint I think than anything else.

    I'd basically be afraid to get my feet wet with another Kahr.

    I do realize that many people on these forums are on them due to their problems or dissatisfaction, but it is a 'pain' to have to return a firearm for repair. And the frustration would be greater the higher the price of the firearm, and having to return it numerous times would completely sour me.

    well, I think its indisputable that Kahr (as well as all the other firearm mfg'ers) need to continue to strive towards zero defects out the door. Its not a foreign concept by any stretch of the imagination, that's for sure. It is basically the standard in most manufacturing sectors.

    Repeat problems, especially, should be eliminated.

    Although I can't speak to exactly what steps Kahr is taking to acheive this - I do sense that they are working towards it.

    If Kahr, or anyone intimately knowledgable with any Kahr continuous improvement endeavors could speak to this, on this forum, it might be a good idea.

    In the meantime, I'm a happy Kahr owner again. (PM9 & PM45)

    If I have anymore problems, KahrTalk will be the second to know.

    In the few months I have been on this forum many of the problems Kahr owners have mentioned including myself (ie slide not feeding shell into chamber) nose dives, 2nd shell not feeding etc. May be due to a poorly designed magazine. It just blows me away Kahr would build such a high quality firearm and settle on a outsource magazine that does not live up the the quality of the rest of the gun.

    Think about a well made auto. BMW, Honda, Mercedes, etc. Would you be eager to invest in one of these autos if you knew they decided to have an inferior auto manufacture make the transmission? How is this any different for Kahr? They make a very solid gun but settle for a third world quality magazine.

    I would like for someone at Kahr in authority to come on this forum and justify why Kahr is ok with the current magazine. Russ

    You got right on the target but it ain't happened.
    I already talked to a few guys at Kahr about issues I've found from forums and do you know what are their responses?

    Interesting. Every time I have called Kahr, their techs and sale people have been very helpful and professional...Somehow, I doubt what you posted is a direct quote.
