    Kahr PM9094A

    Just bought it today! I did a test fire comparison between the Kahr and a Kel-Tec P-11, and the Kahr won hands down! The P-11 kept stove-piping or failing to eject; I also didn't like the feel of the trigger. The Kahr was just that much smoother and flawless in operation. I didn't go into the store intending to buy the Kahr. I actually wanted to get the P-11. But luckily the store has rental guns available in the models they sell, so I could "try before I buy".

    Now my Glock 30 has a new lil' partner.

    Keep us posted on how you like it, and how it shoots! I've been thinking about that Kahr...as a buddy for my Glock.

    I used to carry a KelTec P40 while riding my bicycle. I agree with thread starter that there is little if any comparisan between the two.
    The PM9 is my everday work carry now.(office) And of course when I ride.
    And I'm not badmouthing the KelTec. It was never a problem. I never had a FTFire or Feed.Never did a F and B. Kicked like a mule. I rather liked it. Traded it.
    The PM9 justs shoots better ,smoother. Conceals better.

    pistolwhipped - I have a general question - is it normal for the 6-round magazine to stick out of the magazine well about a quarter inch? There also seems to be some give and take to the magazine. And when I cycle the slide with a full magazine inserted, the slide lock engages, and I have to manually disengage it to chamber a round.

    Appreciate any info you can provide.

    No, the six round mag should be flush and tight at bottom.
    And mine does not lock back on racking a round.

    Your mag should look like the picture you posted. That may not be flush but that is the way it fits. Perhaps one problem explains the other.

    my 6 rounder slightly protrudes , but not that far , as for the slide lock my first question is have you field stripped it and improperly re assembled it ( the spring leg goes on top of the slide stop not under it )

    My wife carries the MK9 version (the all-steel version of the PM) and the mag sticks out just a tad like the one pictured. Great shooting, accurate, and concealable little piece.

    I haven't field stripped it yet. This was the behavior out of the box. I'm going to field strip and re-assemble and then test fire it to see how it behaves. Then perhaps a call to Kahr.

    The 6 round mag for my PM9 sticks out a bit it does not fit flush.

    When it was new it preferred to have me release the slide using the slide release rather than racking the slide to chamber the first round. The slide never locked back as you describe however.

    Now it chambers the first round just fine by my racking the slide.

    Good shooting.

    The manual indicates that after inserting a loaded magazine and pulling back the slide, the slide lock will engage. Kahr recommends then disengaging the slide lock to chamber the round. They say not to chamber a round by racking the slide. Maybe after my 200 round break-in, the slide lock won't automatically engage the slide. I'll keep you all updated. Thanks for all the replies and information.
