Good post Gunny and sorry your having trouble with your new Kahr. I have not heard about the frame shaving or feeding issues with the Kahr 45's but the trigger issue is something I have read about on multiple occasions and seems to be an issue since they were released. Thought they had worked out the bugs but guess not unless you have one of those early models. Hopefully Kahr will make it right for you and on their dime. The concept of the CW45 is a good one for a ccw providing the reliability is there.
