KAHR P380 380 2.5 MAT BLK NS 6
[KP3834N]
$663.00
by CARLOS B Date Added: Friday 02 December, 2011
Pros: Quality feel and look of materials. Soft shooter for this caliber pistol size.
Compact. Match barrel. Real sights.Better feel in the hand than P3AT/LCP.Nice trigger.
Slide locks on empty magazine.

Cons: Too expensive for what it is. Will not feed/cycle all ammo types reliably due to bullet
profile. Tinckering required by yourself or Kahr to get it to work "temporarily".
Premature slide lock issues. Failure to return to battery issues. Failure to fire, light
primer strikes.Too many other "proven" options available in this caliber at half the price.

I will say that this is a very nice pistol that requires alot of attention. Not good for a novice or someone looking for a reliable CCW or first and only pistol. Perhaps Kahr pushed the mechanical boundaries too far on this design so much that it requires constant attention. With the TCP, LCP, P3AT, DB380 available at a lower price point. It is hard to justify this amount on another pocket 380.
Kahr's larger caliber pistols have better performance record at about the same price range/size. I would recommend looking into P9/PM9, P40/PM40, MK9/MK40. Their steel frame pistols are also favored for reliability over their polymer versions.
I really like this pistol and am having a hard time deciding if I should get rid of it yet because it looks so nice. But I'm not relying on it to save myself or someone in a jam anytime soon.
