alright guys here is the deal. i bought a used P45 that had very few rounds thru it (less than 100) so i was expecting the whole break in process. i put about 250 rounds thru myself so far.
im having extraction problems. i was shooting FMJ lawman ammo 230gr. i am occasionally getting a failure to extract on the first round (the slide wont even rack rearward) but mostly getting a failure to extract on the very last round of both mags. the gun tries to extract but the round gets stuck making it hard to pull the mag out. i have to clear the spent case then i can drop the mag.
i called kahr and they said that cause i bought it used it won't be covered under warranty (did not know this and won't buy a used kahr again). i can send it to them they look at it tell me how much $ to fix, i pay, they fix and send it back.
i was just on the kahr website and for all the extraction parts including the 1)extractor 2)extractor spring 3)front/back extractor pins it will only cost $24. i have a very good working knowledge of the gun and can completely disassemble the slide w/out a problem and replace those parts.
but should i even have to do this? is it a extraction component that is causing the failure? i don't want to have to ship the gun to kahr and then wait for the problem to be solved and pay for everything if i can just replace the components myself for a lot less.
should i try different ammo? more rounds? what should i do here? any smiths out there or someone with a similar problem could help me out.
