    New Kahr P45 malfunction

    Slide will not rack back. Just short of no movement in slide at all.
    We should not forget that the spark which ignited the American Revolution was caused by the British attempt to confiscate the firearms of the colonists. -

    I take it that this happened after firing a round or dry firing it?

    Happened after pulling the pistol out of box, dropping the mag, racking the slide twice to get a feel for the action.On the third attempt to rack the slide it froze. Maybe an 1/8 inch movement or less. Not enough movement to see into breech.

    So you can't move the slide far enough to take it down? Does the slide move forward into battery?

    You were duly warned. It says "Kahr" right on the slide.

    I was looking at a parts breakdown and it looks toe like there are a few things it could be...does the slide move rearward enough that the barrel begins to unlock?

    No. Literally there is just enough play in the slide to begin reward motion. 1/8 inch at best

    I don't have the breakdown in front of me so I'm just going from memory but the cocking cam and the striker spring spacer could be the culprits. I had this happen to a pistol of mine a few years back and I ended up driving all of the pins I had access to out and whatever was locking it up freed up. I was able to reassemble and there were no broken/damaged parts. It never happened again. Good luck.

    If this is a new pistol, I'd just send it back to the manufacturer for them to repair. No point in trying to fix it yourself and possibly risking damage.

    Ya shudda bought a GLOCK!!!
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    Hey Top I already have a G27. Just got the problem resolved. Bad recoil spring was the culprit. Repaired at no cost.
