    New Kahr!

    So the Kahr K9 that I ordered arrived today. Picked it up this morning and shot it for the first time tonight at the weekly "Fun Shoot" at my local range. Ended up putting about 60 rounds through it total with zero malfunctions. I really like this little gun...has a very nice out of the box trigger. I have heard that Kahrs need a break in period. I'm going to put some HP ammo through it soon and see how it fares. For those that have a K9 or K40...how much break in before you felt comfortable trusting it for carry?

    The K9 is one of my favorites... Kahr suggests 200. If you go 200 with out any troubles, I'd say you're good to go. Dont foget that the Kahrs are tight, well made guns, and need to be taken care of to run 100%.

    Probably the best gun that Kahr makes quality wise.

    200 rounds and you should be safe.

    stmcelroy, Give the T9 a look. It might change your mind about that.

    The K9 is my EDC. I've had mine for 10 years now and can count the malfunctions on one hand......all self-induced.

    Great little gun IMHO. Congrats!

    After break in, I'd use a little (very little) grease on the slide rails and contact points. My K40 sings with it! Kahrs love their lube.

    Actually, on the advise of the gun shop, I took it home and cleaned it, dried it, reoiled it and used gun grease on the barrel & slide rails. The guy at the gun shop said the same thing...run it very wet to break it in. So far so good. After 60 rounds it is loosening up a bit and is noticably smoother.

    More on Kahrs

    I have about 2000 rounds through my PM9 now. I've never had a malfunction of any type but I have found that reading (and adhering to) the owner's manual is key.

    For the PM9 the manual recommends using the slide release to chamber the first round. I've found that the action is still so stiff that it needs the momentum of the released slide to pick the first round off the magazine and chamber it. Not doing this can make for some interesting feeding problems. But the manual's procedure always works.

    Of 9 other handguns my Kahr PM9 is my favorite.

    I have about 1500 rounds through my P9 with zero malfunctions. I carry it daily and enjoy the slim light design. It is very comfortable to carry concealed.

    Second post and a question. Maybe in the wrong area, if so sorry;

    Just picked up a Kahr PM9. Anything special to lube it with? I picked up both Militec-1 and "Wally's Original" Gun & Reel grease. My 1911s, Full size Beretta 92F and Beretta 8009-8045; I just clean and use Breakfree. But I heard some good about both the above lubes. Actually asking what most use on these smaller pistols. Have not put a round through it yet.

    Thanks.

    I read quite a bit about Kahr's on the various other forums. One recommendation I tried with my new PM 9 was to clean it and hand cycle the action before shooting it. I did it 300 plus cycles on several sittings. I also used the lube points as shown in the picture in the preceeding post.

    Good shooting!

    Well, I put another 145 rounds through it today. Fired it more for accuracy and to break it in. No malfunctions of any sort in the first 205 rounds. I think I'll have to have the rear sight moved as it's hitting to the right. It also hits a bit low. Thinking of night sights. For those that have gone to night sights, did your vertical POI change with different sights?
