    I have a PM9 that has I dunno how many rounds through it. Love the Lakeline followers you can get for it btw. Got a P380 that I haven't shot too much, great gun, it just never gets carried like the PM9.

    I've owned several C and P series Kahr pistols. Both are fantastic and generally trustworthy. There's not a lot of differences between them, not enough for some people to justify the extra $$$ that the P's cost. The "C" are basically the budget series. "P" have different rifling, adjustable sights, machined parts rather than MIM, better slide machining, and some better finishing features (like rollmarking on slide).

    With that said, I'm not really a fan of the "Black Diamond" and .40 cal. Kahr's, simply because of the recoil in such a small frame. They're good for personal protection, but suck arse if you shoot them a whole lot.

    I have a PM9 and like it. Thought it was completely reliable until rounds started nose diving. Lesson learned: replace outer recoil spring every two years. Use Wolff springs - do not try to get replacment springs direct from Kahr - they do not seem to stock them or ever restock them

    Dale00, do you have an approximate round count on that outer spring? In 2 years I may have 1,000 rounds fired while you may have fired 5,000 fired in the same time frame. Just a thought.

    I only fired a few hundred rounds. I read (Kahr forum, I seem to recall) that they recommended switching outer recoil springs every two years.

    I've had and MK9 and 3 MK9 Elites. Qualitywise, no better handguns. But my old, weak hands just got to the point where it sucked to rack the slide. BTW, they have heavy and long, but very smooth triggers. When you get used to them, they're very usable.
