Kahr Owners: Is This Normal?
This is a discussion on Kahr Owners: Is This Normal? within the General Firearm Discussion forums, part of the Related Topics category; I had my Kahr CW40 apart to clean and noticed that part of the striker(?) mechanism has worn away to bare metal. Any Kahr owners ...

My CW9 does not look like that, on the other hand I'm not sure it's anything to be concerned about... yet.

Just checked my PM-9, which has in excess of 1000 rounds through it. No wear showing similiar to your weapon.
On my gun, that's a solid metal, machined part. But in your photograph, it looks as though a coating is delaminating.
It isnít the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog.

I have a P-45 a PM-9, and previously had a CW-9. I have not seen this kind of wear on any of these pistols (all have over 1,000 rounds through them). You did not say what type of ammo you were shooting, I have noticed that with their tight fit the Kahrs will get dirty/fouled very quickly, I try to only shoot 50 rounds between cleanings. Looking at your pictures it almost looks like some case material may have gotten back in the slide mechanism and caused the wear / damage. I do not think it will hurt the performance of the gun. I really like the Kahr pistols, but they seem to like to be kept very clean, and well lubricated for best performance.

The one time I thought I saw something like that on my MK9 it turned out to be a rather deceiving smudge of sorts...

What does the cocking cam look like? Anything unusual there?
