Thanks for the replies. I really like the looks and feel of this little critter and I can see it becoming a constant companion.(after break-in, of course) Our weather here has turned to cr#% but Sunday is supposed to be decent. Iíve got a CAS match on Sunday, so Iíve got 3 unfired guns Iím going to start breaking in after the match. Seems like the gun is well made, but disassembly of an XD or Sig will sure spoil you compared to this one. Seems very difficult to disassemble for cleaning but I got it done.
Thanks for the tip on lube. Thatís the kind of item I was hoping for. On the slide rails, any experience whether the best choice is a good oil or a lite grease?

After my dealer had come down from his marked price to $689.00, I told him Iíd buy it at that but I wanted him to know how loyal a customer I was, so I showed him the printout from Budís. After he had called in the NICS check, he came back over and said heíd let me have it at $653.00.:danceban: Whenever possible, I like dealing with my local dealer as without him, Iíd have a long drive to find anything or just go and look. Heís a little high if you just walk in and pay sticker price, but you can arm twist him into a decent deal most of the time. Iíve been following the progress on your range report of your Kahr so Iím aware of your problems. Iím keeping my fingers crossed that I donít have the same experience with this one, but you can be sure I wonít be carrying it until Iím sure itís 98%+ reliable.

3. Use only KAHR ARMS manufactured Magazines. Consider purchasing extra Magazines so that they may periodically be rotated, allowing the Magazine Spring to relax.
I found this interesting given the general consensus that this was pretty much an ďold wivesĒ tale.
Well, Iíll let you know how the first range trip works out.
Thanks for all the advice.
