    Talking New Kahr PM9

    Hey,

    Just thought I would share some pictures of my new Kahr. This is my first Kahr and so far so good. I shot 100 rounds down range today and it worked as it should, no issues at all. This thing does kick much more than my M&Pc which can be expected due to reduced grip size and weight. Overall I am very pleased with the gun and think I made a good choice for a pocket gun. It was between this or the P380 but I really wanted a 9mm and this is not much larger than the p380.

    Very nice! Love my PM9 also. You'll enjoy many more rounds through it. Try to get a hold of some 147g HST if you can. You'll have an easy to carry, well made, potent package there.

    Kahr porn alert !!



    Very nice. I can't help but agree in your choice
    over the P380 as well. It's amazing how well
    these guns handle recoil pulse. The PM40 is not
    even in the uncomfortable range in my opinion.

    best, dxr

    Thanks for the comments guys. I will have to get used to this gun a bit but it should not take too long. I have stocked up some 124 +p HST for a carry round. I shot 2 mags through it today at the range as well no issues at all. I will have to get used to how small the grip is as I find myself trying to push into the recoil but that caused the nose of the gun to point down and I am shooting 6-8" lower. Once I get that under control it will be a great gun. I was able to get double taps in close groups but they were 8" under POA. If I take my time and focus on holding the gun and not pushing to tame the recoil I cant see the whole in the target because the front site is blocking it ;) I am also still getting used to the long trigger pull. It is nice and smooth with a good break and weight.

    As for the pictures you guys that are into photography are going to laugh. Those pictures were taken with an Olympus FE-20. A cheap sub 100 dollar digital camera. It is all about the lighting. Also those photos are not touched other than adding a border and resizing them. I really want an SLR but cant talk my self into spending the money when I can get pictures this good with my 100 dollar Digi lol. Also it would take away from the gun fund. The picture of the sights picked up a strange hue from the table I was going to correct it in Photo Shop but I liked the look and left it.

    Congrats!
    I shot one at the range today. A very nice piece and every round hit where I pointed it.

    Adam500 - If you aren't already aware, the Tech Support folks at Kahr told me to replace the recoil spring on PM9s every 1000 rounds. I personally experienced failure to return completely to battery issues with mine at the 1400 round point.

    I would suggest you get a spare recoil spring (they're not expensive), and mark them - one for Practice use, and one for Carry use only.

    Small, light guns firing high-pressure rounds like 9mm take a beating, especially the recoil spring.

    Note - their advice applied to the "original style" PM9 - the newer redesigned ones might last longer, but until someone asks the folks at Kahr, I would err on the side of caution.

    Also, if you attempt to manually eject a live JHP round from the chamber by racking the slide (dud clearance drill), you may get the next JHP jammed into the feed ramp nose-down. If this happens, you can usually clear the jam by smacking upwards on the bottom of the mag.

    Hope this helps!

    Very nice weapon ! My buddy loves his. Hasn't had a problem yet with it.


    10thmnt - I was wondering if the CW series was included in that spring comment? thanks

    This info came from Dottie, who is no longer in the Kahr Customer Service Dept, as far as I know. It only applied to the PM series. The CW and P series are larger, and have more mass in their slides. They should be able to absorb more recoil energy than the smaller, lighter PM series - thus, less recoil is absorbed by the recoil spring.

    That said, I would defer to Kahr for a definitive answer.

    Some folks love the PM series, and Kahrs in general. My experience with 3 different Kahr polymer pistols has been poor - thus my decision to standardize on Glock (19 and 26). As always, this is my opinion based on my experience.
