Kahr Arms PM9093 PM9 6+1/7+1 9mm 3"
[PM9093]
$599.00

I bought my PM9 for CC use and I needed to break it in. I followed the prep thread over on the Kahr forums. I wasn't too concerned about accuracy. I mainly wanted to make sure it cycled flawlessly. Ammo I used was some Federal FMJ. I went through 200 rounds and all of them cycled flawlessly except one. I had a FTF and the slide locked back. When I checked the chamber the round was nose down in the magazine. I ejected the magazine and reinserted it. Released the slide and it fired every round after that without any more failures. Even though I wasn't focused on accuracy, I did check my groupings. At 7 yards I was getting groupings at about 6 inches and 7 inches at 10 yards. This gun has a fair amount of recoil and the trigger pull is long. It will take you some time to get used to it.

I was aware of this potential issue before I bought the gun. The issue is that you might have a problem with the bullet catching the slide lever causing the slide to lock back and a FTF. I had checked and it looked like clearance was good on both the range FMJ and defensive JHP I have. As such when I got home from the range I broke it down and filed down the slide lever ever so slightly. Now I just need to get back to the range to test it again to see if I get another failure. Don't worry though, if you're thinking about buying the PM9 don't let this throw you off. If you experience this problem you don't need to do what I did as you can just have Kahr send you another slide lever to resolve the issue.

Overall I'm VERY happy with the gun. However, I've decided I need more magazines to take to the range. Two just doesn't cut it.
