    Question Kahr CW9 thin rail has a nick

    My kahr CW9 has a nick on one of the thin steel rails molded into the frame. Both rails also look a little worn. Also the frame and slide do not seem to be tight and when I slowly pull the trigger I can see the slide lifting up away from the frame a little at the end of the barrel. Are any or these things a reason to be concerned? I have never had a Kahr before and I bought it used but I can return it.Thanks for any input.

    Have you shot the gun yet? Does it shoot were you are pointing and eeject the spent shells ok? A used gun with the rails looking a little worn seems to be logical to me. The nick...... I would really have to see to know weather it should be a concern. I have never pulled the trigger and looked at the end of the barrel before......I don't think I am going to now either. There is a slight gap at the top of the barrel between the slide and the barrel.

    Good luck the CW9 is a very nice gun!

    The "nick" is supposed to be there.

    It is an alignment mark for the rails when placed in the molding machine for the frame.

    From Kahrs website.

    There is a chip in the metal guide rail of my polymer pistol. Is this normal?

    A. This is a witness mark for the polymer frame manufacturer and is present by design
