Hello guys, I just got back from my first range report. First I did the proper cleaning w/brake clean, then lubed, polished the feed ramp (w/toothpaste!) and racked the slide 500 times! I also locked the slide open for a full day which is a trick I learned with my FNP-40, then I proceeded to fire 200 rds of FMJ down range.
Not one hiccup at all! Gun ran perfect! At first I though it was shooting a little low and to the left but I quickly learned it was operator error. I was out to break in the gun and wasnt worried about grouping. Having said that, when I did go for groups I could put it right where I wanted it. It took me a minute to get used to the trigger but I'm liking it now. Much smoother/lighter than my LCR which is DAO.
If I had to make a complaint I guess it would be, I wish the mag dropped a little easier, and really its just getting used to a different gun. This one I have to press the mag release all the way in when my other guns I dont. I'm ok with this because its a smaller gun and I wouldnt want to release the mag unintentionally. My hand is abit rough from the grip but I did just run 200rds in about 35 minutes. I do want to get a hogue slip grip for it though. Any recommendations for the Hogue?
I'm very pleased with my purchase and cant wait to get to know my girl a little better. I had a Taurus PT709 and that was horrible, FTE, jams all the time and had very bad accuracy and a terrible trigger. I though I was done with little 9s but the Kahr CW9 is a fantastic gun. Its a keeper!
