    Thanks all for your time and comments. I talked with the manager today and emailed pics and my position. I stated that what I wanted was a new Kahr PM9, like what was represented to me. I agree that if they will not do this that it is most likely that this gun is fine. The issue to me, primarily, is that it is not what was represented to me. I got it for what I would consider a good deal if it was new and a fair deal for used - $575 otd.

    The owner will be back in the store at 9am tomorrow and they promised a return call then. I'll keep you all posted.

    I saw a pm9 for sale down in richmond for $499? I think. It was brand new too. Unfortunately I didn't have the money.

    That is a great deal! Sure it wasn't a CW9?

    Lesson to be learned here. Always...ALWAYS inspect your potential purchace in as much detail as possible before buying! That being said, some gun shows require the slides to be locked back and banded. If this is the case, you cannot usually field strip, but you could easily se the wear on the barrel. This guy may be pulling the "new" as in "never sold" routine. Could have been a rental?? Hope you get some answers. And maybe give a heads up as to where you bought this gem... if the mods allow it

    Wow - an honest business!!

    Good news! I'm dealing with an honest shop - they acknowledged that the one they sold me was used. They apologized profusely for the mistake and are going to ship me a new one on receipt of this used one.

    Not to be a moron, but how does this work w/ federal sales records, CCW and the like? You can't just sell a used gun and not know it, the records are very specific and custody chain is very tight through shops. To me this looks like "lets see if he'll notice". I know they're shipping you a new one, but aren't you picking up the cost of transfer fees and a 2nd back ground check?

    No actually. They are paying for both the transfer fees, shipping, and the second background check.

    Picked up the new PM9 yesterday at a local FFL dealer. Cleaned it last night and took it to the range today. I put 206 rounds through it without a hiccup. The only irregularity that occurred was that the slide failed to lock open on an empty mag after around 110 rounds. All in all, I am VERY pleased with this pistol.

    Great to hear. My PM9 has been a great gun, gets carried lots.
