    Range Report, Kahr P45

    Took the P45 out today. Shot two groups of 100 rounds, each.

    The pic might not be very clear, but you can make out which group was shot with a six o'clock hold and which was shot with a dead-on hold.

    10 yards, from a sandbag rest. 200 rounds of American FMJ, 230-gr.

    I wore a hat, with the brim low over my glasses, to avoid the P45's tendency to sometimes sling brass back right at the shooter's forehead.

    I tried shooting with the hat, and without out it. I discovered that the hat had the beneficial effect of reducing glare which improved my aim and kept me from breathing as much gunspowder residue and gunsmoke. It made a real difference, and made my shooting experience far more pleasant. I'm a hat man from now on!

    One classic FTE, and that was in the first 50 rounds.

    One light primer strike (could have been the ammo).

    Encountered a very strange phenomenon. During the last 100 rounds, about every third magazine had sort of a problem.

    After firing the last round from the magazine, the rim of the shell casing would catch at the top of the magazine, in its lips. Slide would still lock back and magazine would still drop free. Very strange.

    A quick, light flick with a finger was enough to send the detained casings on their merry way. Has that ever happened to anyone here before? If so, what causes/cures it?

    Thanks for the range report....my P45 needs to go back to Kahr due to extremely erratic ejection (seven empty cartridges cases will fly out in seven different directions....as with your P45 randyt....at least one striking me on the noggin.....ouch.) Plus I had some pretty bad FTE's with Winchester SXT 230 grain JHPs and some other minor issues.

    I did not have the problem you described, but it seems to me that the P45 may need a redesign on the extractor.....
