Exceptional firearm. All firearms need a break in period. When I received the pistol, I racked the slide over 500 times within the first two days before I went to the range. This will help break it in. Two hundred rounds flawless. Read the prior reviews about the grip so added a Pachmayr before shooting. The workmanship as far as the machining is superior, as they must use very high caliber cnc equipment. Everything including the springs is heavy duty. Keep a strong grip on this weapon and it groups well at twenty feet (read FBI crime stats and this is well within excepted norms). I purchased a Masc OTW holster on Amazon and there is no print under my shirt. Paired with Underwood 110 grain Extreme Defender ammo (1400 fps @ 500 ft. Pounds) This will stop anything in your way. I am a sixty year old gentleman and can handle this little cannon with no issues. I have other firearms but they have now but stored away. This is my EDC. Hope this comment finds you all well. We live in the greatest country in the world. Let's keep it that way!!

I hated this gun. It isn%u2019t accurate at all, fails non stop even after 500 rds, doesn%u2019t even compare to a glock or MP Shield. Horrible recoil and just a low quality poor gun. I would strongly advise against it as a guy who owns 15 different handguns.

This pistol is a handful. In a good way. Kahr built a great product capable of reliable operation with a powerful-for-it's-size pistol. Highly recommended.

Ordered and received from Buds exceptionally fast! Snagged it at a steal and am very happy with it. I polished the barrel (like the Kahr polish service) and the slide stop pin, racked the slide a few times with some Flitz on the rails to clean up the polymer rails, and swapped the followers for Lakeline LLC aluminum followers along with a solid cleaning prior to shooting. Zero malfunctions even during the break-in period, but I credit a lot of that to the polish work before hand (my CW380 acted up even after it had 200 rounds through it until I did an identical polish job). Glad I switched the followers as the .40 plastic followers are known to crack under recoil, and my Lakeline's have dings on them (which is a known thing per Lakeline's website) from feed ramp impact. I can't argue with it's track record, and given it's diminutive size + zero malfunctions I'm very happy with the purchase! Didn't hurt that the bargain I paid for it got me the Lakeline followers (as compared to what they usually run for). Also ran perfect with some 7 round mags (without the plastic extension and using the Hickok45 method of resting my pinky on top of my ring finger). Definitely has snap if you're loosely holding on to it with your dominant hand, but as long as you're strong hand is firmly gripping it it's actually fairly pleasant to shoot! It may be worth mentioning that it's quite loud, even compared to my other small .40 (Glock 27), but that added to the amusement at the range ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.

This is like the other 3 Kahrs I own. The only really negative thing about Kahrs budget level pistols is You have to fire 200 rounds through them before they become dependable. When You first start firing them they some times hic cup and either You get a ftl or the only other thing is I have had this last Kahr fire one or 2 rounds and the slide locks back. You bear with these problems and You find that they start losing the bad habits at about 130 rounds. From then on it was a great accurate gun for what it was designed to do. Be aware that this is a small gun and it shoots a pretty good size round and don't try to shoot one 200 times in one day. Your wrist will not be happy about it. I feel this is a great gun for concealed carry and very easy to hide. I feel the double action is lot safer for carrying with a round in the chamber..For the price You cant find a better value

This little .40 packs a wallop! Much more manageable with the addition of a Houge sleave. Very concealable. No issues with FMJ ammo. ! FTF with a Tactical round but not through the 200 round break-in. For you naysayers you should be doing that to get proficiency with you EDC anyway.
