P9 Covert constant jams / Kahr to the rescue!
You guys were right. I appreciate the feedback. Kahr replaced the ejector at no charge. Took it to the range today and shot 50 perfect rounds.
After approx 400 rounds my P9 is still having FTE issues. 350 of them have been range shells (Winchester 115gr FMJ new shells and Atlanta Arms 115gr FMJ reloads supplied by my range)50 rounds have been Federal 115gr JHP.The spent casing is being caught between the rear of the slide opening and the end of the barrel. Almost as though the casing is unable to fully eject before the new round is trying to chamber and getting stuck. This is my second Kahr pistol. The first, a P380 gave me quite a few FTF and FTE issues but smoothed out after about 300 rounds and runs great now so I was hoping for the same with this one. I bought the gun "new" from a gun show about 3 weeks ago so I don't know how old it is or how long its been sitting if that has anything to do with it. The s/n is YC0623 and there is no "U" on the trigger guard so I'm pretty sure I'm the original owner.
Kahr Replies: It's a P9 Covert 2002 model and thought the recoil spring may need replacing.
I replaced the spring and no change.
My question: Does old guns purchased new have time to "set up" enough that grease or oil could stiffened up to cause this type of FTE on every clip?
