    This was made by Michigun and it seems that alot of members haven't seen it or know where to find it. So I asked the Admins to make it a sticky.

    Good idea BackDraft ^c… that’ll surly make finding that diagram a bit easier for those that may be interested in seeing it.

    Why, so you can use it as a spill mat only while cleaning & lubing your Kahr? ;f

    Glad to hear that Daynja & you are VERY welcome! I'm just happy that it seems to work as well for others as it has for me.

    That is correct & that was also all WIG19’s doing! ^c (I didn’t originally include the Lube Diagram in the Detail Strip Instructions… never thought about it till WIG19 said something… he added it while converting the instructions to pdf.)

    FYI, you’ll also find the Lube Diagram a few posts down in the “Detail Stripping the Kahr's Upper” thread. (Figured I’d toss it in there as well.)

    Thank Michigun , I was out the last few days in your neighborhood dropping off a few loads. Next time I'm up there I let you know maybe we can hook up.

    I use and highly recommend Tetra Gun Grease in very minute quantities on the slide rails and bottom of slide that cocks the hammer. I have never found anything that works as well.

    I assume this works for the metal frames too?

    Brace yourself, here is a really newbie question:
    Aren't you supposed to lightly oil the entire outside too? I have always had a glock with the tenifer coating, and as we all know, that doesn't need much at all.

    Well, the above diagram is only meant to deal with the “lubing” portion for the Kahr… what you’re talking about is the “protection” part… two different things as some lubes have ZERO protection value.

    Good clarification.

    How do you "protect" a Kahr (metal)?

    I like to use CLP myself… I just soak a cleaning patch in it, wipe it all over everything & then take a clean cloth &/or patch & wipe as much of it off everything as possible… no fear, it’s still there protecting! ^c (That’s the step I do before I start going through the lube diagram above with my lube of choice.)

    They say CLP (which stands for Clean Lube & Protect) does it all, but I find it a mediocre at best “cleaner” & absolutely worthless as a “lube”… but its “protective” properties are one of the best out there!

    I agree with you about the CLP. I have been using your lube and some other from KG so far they have lasted well at the training classes. Just finished the last one and my Kahr hit the 15,000 round make but I also tested a MK9 & PM9 side by side during the last 2 classes. They both worked great I noticed you have to pay more attention to lubing and the recoil springs. Now I just have to choose one next spring,lol.

    I agree. Oil sucks for the slide rails as it all runs out the muzzle end after a couple days of carry.
