I've had an MK9 Elite 98 for years.
Except for when I foolishly shot Wolf through it and broke the extractor, it's been as close to 100% as any piece of machinery gets!!
Kahr sent me the replacement parts free of charge and I had my gunsmith repair it. Took about a week.
The weather here a week ago today was absolutely perfect so I took my recently acquired Kahr PM9 9mm pistol out to the countryside for its first airing.
At first, I tried chambering the first round out of each magazine a few times by slingshotting the slide as I do with all my other handguns, before discovering, not all that surprisingly, THAT didn't work real well.
The noses of these first rounds were still visibly lower than they should have been and were jamming against the barrel feed ramp. I was having to cure that by tapping the butt of the mag each time to drop the slide and chamber the round. I then remembered that Kahr advises the best way to chamber the first one is by starting with a locked back slide and using the slide release to drop the first round into place. Problem solved!
Working out of one of Dave Ellerton's great KY Tac Braveheart IWB kydex holsters (http://www.kytac.com/page3.html), I proceeded to fire a total of 237 rounds of the fine South African manufactured PMP brand 115 gr. FMJ ammo I'd been hoarding with nary a bobble!
So far, it looks like this pint-size parabellum is a keeper!
