The biggest problems with a non running gun are two:
1) ammo for testing. The ammo that the CW9 burned up seeing if this or that would make it work exceeded the cost of the gun over the spring and summer. Some was FMJ, some was reloads, but a couple hundred rounds of it was Federal HydraShok, Speer Gold Dot, and Hornady 115 FXT Critical Defense.
2) There is only so long and so often a guy can say, OK, I will fix this and then it will run. Hope and Change have their limits.

My daughter bought a M19 Gen4, I bought a second M19 Gen 4, and we added a third older one. They all work.
Mr. My name is David.

I had a Feb 2012 Gen4 G19 that I had the same experience with that you had with your Kahr. I couldn't get it to stop jamming. I finally gave up and got rid of it.

Every manufacturer is pumping as fast as they can and still not meeting demand, at least around here. You can get a bad one of anything. Look at any of the brand specific boards. There are problems with all of them, even the high end guns. If you really want to be safe, wait till the rush on guns is over and the manufacturers start paying more attention to quality control.

Kahr isn't having any more problems than anyone else. Less than Glock. You don't see too many posters on the Kahr board ripping Kahr the way some people on this board do. Actually, I haven't seen any. Their CS takes care of problems.
