    Another Kahr P40 longevity thread

    I've tried searching, but the only terms I can think to use are omitted by the search engine due to being too long and/or overly used.

    My question is this, I really enjoy taking my P40 out and casually shooting like I do my G22. The P40 is also going to be my carry rig when I get my CCW. With normal care, can the P40 be used as a recreational shooter like my G22? Is there an advertised life span somewhere?

    I have seen on other boards people saying a ~6000 life span. Not sure if that is true or not.
    IMO Based on what I have seen about Kahr's customer service. I wouldn't plan on putting thousands of rounds through it. Unlike Kel-Tec Kahr does not offer a lifetime warranty.

    Your right I don't think that Kahr has a lifetime warranty. But I had some problems with my K9 magazines and called to buy new magazine springs. Dottie instead sent me 2 new magazines and asked me to return the old ones. My serial number is AD00XX which the best I can determine was made in late 1995 or early 1996. I bought it used last year for $380. I think that Kahr will take care of you when the time comes, they sure took care of me. I am now looking at a P45 for carry.

    My manual says it has a 5 year warranty... I guess I'll shoot it for 4 1/2 years and see what happens. :)
