What is everyone's opinion on the weapon? pro/con
I bought mine used, so I don't know how reliable it is during the "break in"ambeck1 said:thanks for the info. you put one of the cons as thin grip but that is what makes it compact IMO. What about reliability issues? i have heard only good things about this weapon.
I do have to agree with you on the ammo in the pocket/mag holder Qboom. That was annoying.Qboom said:I have the Kahr PM-9 and the Kel-Tec ( I follow the philosophy of match gun to your wardrobe... Not wardrobe to gun. Yes, it gets expensive..Lol). Anyway, I do like the Kahr alot... However, I do not like Kahr's customer service at all. The another problem is the factory magazines. They are designed funky. I constantly would find more bullets in my pocket/mag holder than in the magazine. PROMAG makes superior magazines to Kahr's. I have 10 round mags; I believe they make a higher count magazine too. Lastly, be careful of the ammunition loads you put in Kahr's. They are not designed to be able to handle all loads of a particular cartridge.
The Kel-Tec... I can't love this gun; because it was so cheap to buy... My mind won't let me just love it. I've had absolutely no problems with it... But I keep waiting. Lol
Yeah. We call it a slam load on our job. When you drop one in the chamber and hit the slide release you can, over time, prematurely wear or chip the extractor which could result in a FTF.So releasing the slide lock to put the gun in full battery will damage the slide lock??? that dosnt sound good. from what i read you are supposed to do it that way.
Many guns have this characteristic. It's better for a cheap slide lock to wear out and need replacement than it is for an expensive slide to wear out.Yeah. We call it a slam load on our job.
