Took my CW45 to the range today and didn't have any problems with that. Hmm... I guess it COULD be your finger on the mag release but I tend to doubt that. I read on here about someone else having that issue and they sent it back to Kahr for a quick fix and have had no such issues since. I think I remember Kahr knowing what the design flaw was and recitied it. Sorry I'm no more help, Chris.
