Kahr PM9 Failure to Return to Battery
My new PM9 frequently fails to return to battery. This gun is a VCXXXX gun. It was bought at Gander Mtn. in Huntsville, AL brand new on Thanksgiving Day 09. It left Kahr in July of 2006...
A quick explanation of my FTC: After the bullet is fired and the slide comes back to pull another bullet from the magazine it stops about 0.05-0.1 inch from its most forward position and in turn fails to fire. If I simply reach up with my thumb and push it forward the remaining 0.05-0.1 inch it fires like normal. But, this will make a person that that spent the kind of money I did on the "best" CC gun go absolutely nuts.
The video below is of the gun performing its famous FTRB. Also, in the video I say 2nd to last round, but it's the last round in the magazine. Camera shy... :mrgreen:
I chamber the first round just as Kahr insists, so that is not the issue.
The FTRBs have happened with the following ammo: American Eagle 124 gr FMJ, Blazer Brass 115gr FMJ, PMC Bronze 124gr FMJ, Remington UMC 115gr HP, Independence 115 gr FMJ, Sellier and Bellot 115 gr FMJ, Winchester 115 gr FMJ, Black Hills 124gr HP, and Speer Gold Dots.
how can I tell when my PM9 was manufactured?
just picked up a PM9 today, how can I tell by the serial number when it was made.
serial number: ICXXXX
