    Kahr CW9 Factory Flaw--pics.

    some of you may remember my first posting on this but may not have seen the pictures.after field stripping my new Kahr CW9 for the first time i noticed what first appeared to be a long crack in the polymer frame,just under the slide rail..after a closer inspection it looked to be nothing more then a long scrape rather then a crack.i'm not sure it would be worth the bother,or really necessary to send the gun back to Kahr? any thoughts on this?

    If it ain't broke, don't worry about it. Go shoot and enjoy your pistol. I don't think Kahr will repair a scrape anyway.

    Agreed...unless it turns to a more serious problem, I wouldn't worry about it.

    Those guns like to lose some weight during break in. The pistols are made so tightly that some material is shaved off, and its how the gun starts to fit itself. It's completely normal, but kinda unfortunate that it happened to the polymer, and I admit it is and unusual location for wear. I bet it will hold up fine, and doubt you will see much more wear in the area after those burs are rubbed off. Good luck

    I wasn't content with the shaving my gun did on it's own so I took a file to mine. Spent about five hours total rounding down all the sharp edges on the slide and then polishing with really fine grit wet and dry sandpaper. I liked the CW9 before. I really like it now.

    I wouldn't worry about it. You could send Kahr an e-mail with the pics and ask their opinion.

    that scrape mark is a cosmetic issue
    location of scrape will not hurt performance of gun
    scrape mark is not visible with gun assembled anyway
    just my 2 cents

    I would check the bottom of the slide for a burr. If there is one you could file it off.

    I would't get too worried about it. It will scrape to a certain level then stop.
