I don't know if I'm breaching forum etiquette by posting a picture here but a picture is worth....... that's the head of a silhouette target

This is one sweeeet gun. It is more accurate up to 10 yards with it's 3" barrel than my FNP9 with a 4" barrel.
Put 200 rounds through it. No FTF no FTL no problems what so ever.
I was having second thoughts on whether I "wasted" $600. Not now. To answer the title of this thread "Is the PM9 worth it".... Damn Straight
Nice! Thanks for posting back, especially with a picture.
When I decided on a P9, I definitely had to hunt one down. Found a store about an hour away that had one, but when I got there to look at it, I stripped it down and noticed exactly what you are talking about. Unfired, and NIB the gun had lots of loose polymer "shavings" attached to the frame rails. When looking at it real closely, it seemed as though the gun skipped someone's assembly line, frame clean-up job. I really wanted the gun, but couldn't get over that voice in the back of my head. So I passed on it, and had them bring one in from an out-of-state location. The wait sucked, but in the end I was happier!

Nex time you get a chance, strip the frame off your polymer Kahr, and stare at it for a few minutes... ask yourself if that's $700 workmanship!
Thanks Panther....glad you like it I hope the PM9 I buy is just like yours!!! Thanks for th photo too.....looks like The PM did exactly what it is suppose to do!!
I guess ROI is all relative. I can buy two Mossberg shotguns for the price of a Kahr. That's a whole lot more gun for the money. But good luck on hiding them in the pocket of cargo pants. Sorry really not trying to be smart but you get my point. What I was looking for was a small 9mm that I could stake my life on. From all I've read and heard from shooters a Kel-Tec wasn't it. A Rohrbaugh is over a grand. The logical choice is a Kahr. The polymer may not be A1 but the slide and barrel are top notch.IMHO

My early PM9 has never given me a problem. It's run smooth as butter with no jamming or peening through about 800 rounds.
Well made little gun.
Like it so much, I'm lookin' for a CW45 to compliment it.
I just got my first PM 9 the other day and fed it 200 trouble free rounds last night. very pleased with it!
Have had my PM9 for about 9 mos and have around 1500 rounds through it. Not one issue. I paid $620 for the black DLC PM9 with routine sights. Is very accurate at intended distances.
I am picking up a CW9 from my wife tomorrow.
My other CCWs are an LCP and XD9SC.
Kahr PM9 ...
Had 1 hated it! I tried everything with it. And yes, I gave it a break-in-over 500 rds. It jammed like jelly!
Too bad because it is so small and light. It killed me but I got rid of it. I won't ever buy anything from Kahr again!I sent it back to Kahr but still nothing but problems.
BUT I've read that others have great luck with them.
All guns,cars ,etc have a lemon once in a while ( Check out the Kimber thread you'll even find one there)
But I did a LOT of research and also know first hand the PM9 is one excellent firearm
Sorry you had a bad gun.

I love mine and it's become my everyday concealed carry weapon.
Fits my hand beautifully. Trigger is almost sensuous it's so smooth and silky!
Recoil is practically unnoticeable with normal pressure rounds. Not one FTE, FTF or failure to return to battery in over 500 rounds. Very accurate. Very well built. What's not to like?
I have two friends who purchased PM9's and were ready to get rid of them due to numerous "problems".
Turns out the "problems" were not with the PM9's, but with the shooters themselves. They were "limp-wristing" the guns. One of the guys had VERY large hands. He just COULDN'T get a proper grip.
Once the OTHER guy was shown how to properly hold and fire the pistol, the "problems" went away and he's now a happy and proud PM9 owner.
