Having owned a CM9 for quite a while and considering it one of my favorite and most dependable pistols, I was pretty excited to see that Buds had this PM45 for a decent price. With the PM model being the higher end, I understood this would have a few upgrades from the CM model. After it arrived and I pulled it out of the box, I have to say I was somewhat disappointed in the overall feel of the action. It was sooo gritty and stiff, I wondered if I wasted my money. I cleaned it and took it out the following day to break it in. The gun fired one and immediately jammed (I thought it had broken) and it would not function properly. I cleaned it again and found a tiny little piece of metal stuck in the recoil return assembly. After I cleaned that out, I put it back together and had another jam, and another, and the gun wouldn\'t fire because the slide isn\'t cycling well and is not sliding all the way closed Turns out the little taper angle on the end of the recoil spring assembly is catching the slide and not allowing the slide to close completely. I think it\'s supposed to center the barrel...? This flaw seems like a fatal manufacturing flaw and makes me question whether this gun will be dependable?? The gun is completely unusable at this point, (brand new gun, right out of the box) so I\'ve returned the gun - at my own expense - back to Kahr and now will have to wait 5-6 weeks to find out what they will do to fix it.

200 rounds of factory new brass for break in. Had ongoing FTF/Jamming issues (approx 1 per magazine) when both I and a friend shot it. Sent back to Kahr where it sat for 7 weeks before they test fired it to find, \"nothing wrong\". Sent back to me. I cleaned the firearm and magazines (heavily corroded/rust?) thoroughly and I then went to the range and fired another 200 rounds of factory new brass with the same issues. Cleaned and inspected firearm after range session to find the front cap to the guide rod assembly was missing. Contacted Kahr CS again who said they would send me a new guide rod assembly and that i\'d need to take a video of my next range session before sending in the firearm for more warranty work (presumably perpetuating the he said/she said game). It seems I\'ve gotten a lemon, which happens, but I\'d expect Kahr CS to do a better job resolving the issues than they have. I will be selling the firearm once I receive the new guide rod assembly (if I ever do). I cannot recommend purchasing a Kahr firearm, not because of the occasional lemon, but because of my frustrating experience with their customer service team.

This is an awesome little gun, it is very nicely finished, perfect pocket gun. I open the box, and I went straight to the range, and as I was going there I kept thinking that this little hand cannon was going to have a big kick considering that it only weights 17.5 ounces, but I was shocked at how smooth it shoots, and how little was the recoil. It has less recoil than my Kimber Ultra, and even less recoil than my Sig P227 carry. BUY IT, GREAT GUN

120 rounds thru it so far and so good! I can't believe I can pocket carry this but I can and I will! I already have Kahr 40 and 9's and they have been flawless! I am very happy opting to buy this and may pick up a second one too! So far shot several MFG's FMJ's and HP's no problems at all! Thanks Buds!
