View Full Version : Kahr PM9 6 round magazine plastic base plate

Just joined the ranks of Kahr owners and just purchased a PM9 with black DLC coating and night sights. I've had a few hours to play around with it and it is surely a nice little CCW pistol.

That said, I'm finding that the metal mag baseplate is rather sharp. I could file it down for sure but saw that some of the other Kahr magazines offered a plastic baseplate on them. I think with the black DLC, the black baseplate would also reduce any contrast identification issues while CCW'ing.

So is there a black plastic baseplate for the 6 round 9mm mags?

BTW, I'm aware of the Pearce extended baseplate but I'm looking for something low profile and flat.

Some of us take the Pearce Grip extensions and modify then to a Flush Black baseplates.

See my postings and pics in this thread.

AZ Traveler, I was just thinking of that thread! :cool:

Yea, I would stick with the metal baseplate, but just finish it in black.

I really don't like the Kahr plastic baseplates. I've been meaning to order some to "fix" my 8rd mags that came with plastic plates.

I wish the PM45 mag came with a metal baseplate.
