      Recoil road protruding

      Hi!
      After carrying, shooting and maintaining my K40 for years, I guess I finally made a disassembly mistake and flipped the recoil spring. At least I think so - after firing a first magazine today the recoil rod just popped out. It just dangles there, I can pull it out or push it back into the slide. It definitely isn't where it supposed to be. What makes matters really unsettling is that I cannot remove the slide. It simply doesn't move forward although it goes into the battery (yes, I pull the trigger trying to remove it). Short of sending it back to Kahr, what do I do? I hate to send it for repairs, it is my carry one.
      Thank you in advance,
      Val

      I'd call Kahr technical support to see if they can help, or take it to a gunsmith.

      I did call the technical support and send the gun for service. They are incredible - I don't think I ever experienced this level of customer support. I shipped my pistol on Friday, I get it back today - Thursday. Fixed and lubed, new recoil spring for no charge. Thank you, Kahr. Here is one happy customer. It is a second time I need to use the service (the first time was many years ago with me P40), and the second time I get outstanding support.
