    In that picture it was the first round of the mag. However, the others were not. My wife and I share a set of 6 mags. As I stated before, her PM9 never has this problem. I numbered the mags and the problem does not happen with any specific mag.

    Steve,
    I don't know how much this helps you, but, this info is from a friend who I talked to regarding your problem.
    Failures to feed can be caused by: the extractor, a rough feed ramp, misaligned magazines, damaged or misaligned magazine feed lips.
    Tell him to first check the extractor for dirt or grit and ease of movement. Any restriction on the extractor will cause misfeeds.

    Does your serial number begin with VA? I think these were the first productions and there were some problems.

    Well I really cleaned the extractor. I am going to try and get to the range again in a couple of days. If it FTF again, I will send it back to Kahr.

    We went to the range today and I had 4 FTF's out of 100 rounds. 3 occurred in the first 50 rounds.
    I can't trust this gun and I will have to send it back to Kahr on Monday.

    Is there anyone specifically I should speak to?

    I spoke to Ian and my PM9 is on it's way back to Kahr. He said the turnaround time is 7 to 10 days.

    SteveS, I am sorry to hear you are having issues with your PM9. I have not had this experience with mine. I hope it comes back without any issues and you can enjoy it for the fine handgun it is.

    By what I have seen on another post, the turn around time is very quick. I think (and hope) you will get your gun back it perfect working order. It is a great gun, and alot of gun in such a small package. I think the trigger is the best trigger I've owned.

    Sending some hope here. My PM9 has a serial beginning with IB and I'm now at a flawless 600 rounds of mixed ammo. Blown away by the reliability. Sorry you're having such problems. At least we know you're in a serial number range that could/should be more reliable.

    Thanks for all of the messages. I believe this will get fixed and I can resume carrying the PM9. I am now carrying my G26 and it's a bit of a challenge.

    I remember when we purchased the two Kahrs. The dealer said, "I have to let you know, you might get a good one or a bad one". I really didn't believe him but I guess he was right. The one I purchased for my wife is flawless.

    I think the turn-around time is great. About a year ago when I owned a KelTec P11 some spring broke and I had to send it back. It took 3 months to get it back. I think the reason for that is KelTec's need more repairs than Kahr's.

    Anyway, I know things will work out. Merry Christmas.

    Steve, who;s your dealer? I want to buy from him ... what he said shows that he doesn't BS and he KNOWS his sh8t! You should stick with him on future purchase(s).

    Merry Christmas!

    I keep my G26 in the console of my car. I've never carried it since I've had the PM9.

    I also sometimes carry an 11.5 oz. S&W 360pd in a Hume inside-the-pants holster. Don't even know it's there. The Glock, for me, is a different story for carry.

    Actually, we purchase all of our weapons at our shooting range, Palm Beach Shooting Center. They are extremely helpful and the will match any price I find on the net. They even offered to send the PM9 back for me but I just sent it myself.

    As far as my G26 goes, I am finding it not too bad to carry. We are in shorts and tee shirts down here most of the year. I have a DeSantis IWB holster, I can't remember the name of it but it conceals my G26 pretty well.

    Well I got my PM9 back today from Kahr. That was really fast. They replaced the Extractor, Recoil Spring and they polished parts as needed. They lubed and test fired and wrote that everything was fine.

    I won't be able to test it until next Sunday. I got my fingers crossed.

    Great to hear you got it back, I am confident that the gun will be fine now(keep fingers crossed).
    Ironically, I just purchased a S&W m&p pro and it has barrel issues. It has to be sent back to S&W for repairs. So you are not alone in the "problems with new guns". Strangely, I own several manf's of hg's, and two of them are Smith's, and both had to be sent back to the factory a couple days after buying them. It's hard to do, but must be done. It's like taking a toy away from a little kid after he plays with it for only a short time. That's life, though.
    Good luck, MrWiz

    Well it's Saturday and I just got back from the range. To say I am pissed off is an understatement. I loaded my first mag of 6 and fired with no issues. When I reloaded the same mag with another 6, the problems started. These issues are worse than I originally had before I sent this PM9 to Kahr for repair.

    It fired the first round of the 2nd clip with no problem. I pressed the trigger on the 2nd round and nothing.
    I took the mag out and had a hell of a time getting the live round out of the chamber.

    Once I cleared it I tried the process over again with a different type of ammo and the same thing happened.
    This time when I dropped the mag and tried to pull the slide back a thin metal shaving dropped down.

    I tried to fire again and this same thing happened. It would fire the 1st round and when I pulled the trigger for the 2nd round, nothing.

    So now I have to call Kahr again and send this POS back. If for some reason I get it back the next time with more issues, I am going to demand that they replace my 5 month old PM9 that's had problems from day 1.
