Background:
Patricia has graciously acceded to place a sticky on this thread so that Kahr owners (and prospective owners) will have a place to check serial number history and any product service information (such as the limited July 2004 PM9 barrel recall/refinish).

I’m going to start this with 3 posts, the first for Kahr model information and any SN-related bulletins, the other two for 9mm and 40 S&W serial numbers respectively. Following this, users can post their individual Kahr SN’s. I’m going to attempt to keep this a bit cleaner than the Gen’l Glocking project (hats off to that 10mm guy, ‘cause that’s a handful). As I’m able to update the overall listing from individual posts, Patricia will assist me in removing them. Less for you to scroll through in determing whether a given SN-range has been posted or not.

It is extremely valuable if you know or can use the date on the case-collection envelope, often called the “born-on” date. If you don’t know the born-on date, please say “date unknown” – if someone comes along later who does know it, then I’ll update that SN’s information. When posting, please post in the following format as it will simply save the amount of time I spend in cutting, pasting & collating, leaving more time for shooting: ^c

1st 4 characters of SN – Model – born-on date (or “date unknown”). The first 4 are needed because production can be split within less than a thousand from month to month.
For example:

YC01xx - P9 Covert – Feb 2002

A Word about SN Sequencing
Following my query to Dottie Herold at Kahr, she advises there can be several reasons why SN's may sometimes be out of sequence. The first is the obvious situation where dealers sometimes don't rotate their guns (or orders) on a FIFO basis, for a variety of reasons. This would cause a gun to come into the public domain seemingly out of sequence. The case-collection date is the best indicator.

The other is that, as Kahr runs a monthly quantity with a SN group being applied to one model or another, there could be a situation where a gun or guns don't pass one of their "audit gates" and are held back as a production repair. It is certain to be sold "out of sequence." Great procedure for us (the production checks), bad for applying logic to SN sequences. Bottom line is that the case-collection date is still the best "born-on" date; if the gun was pulled back for a quality check/repair before hitting the street that's great. The main purpose of the thread being to track age & service info, non-sequential SN's are a curiosity only, as long as the age/status of the gun can be established with whatever SN it carries. If anyone has any further definitive info to pass along on this issue, please PM me so that I can keep the straighest info available. Shoot safely & enjoy. :)

Note: As Covert models are not marked as such on the slide, please include that info in the post if it is. Official model designations and photos can be found at the following links:

9mm Kahrs here (http://kahr.com/pistols_9mm.html)
40 S&W Kahrs here (http://kahr.com/pistols_40sw.html)

SERVICE INFORMATION:
I will attempt to post ONLY verified product service information relating to mods, recalls, etc. Word of mouth, rumor, conjecture, etc., will not get it done. Dottie Herold, Opns Mgr at Kahr (508-795-3919, Ext. 331), has always promptly answered my emails. I suspect that polite/civil emails & phone calls yield similar responses.

"Over-enthusiastic" Mag Release: For those who find that the standard magazine release anticipates their needs too well, or is too-easily bumped under recoil, there is an updated mag release available from Kahr, at no charge. Contact them with your SN to ascertain applicability. Thread with contacts & relevant info is here. (http://www.glocktalk.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=266338)

PM9 Barrel Recall: Kahr has posted information regarding a specific range of PM9 barrels to be recalled and have some finish machining done. The specifics as to whether your barrel requires service should be gotten by contacting Kahr.

Models involved: PM9093A, PM9093NA, PM9094A, PM9094NA
Serial number ranges: VA0003 -- VA9999, VB0004 -- VB0999

(FWIW, as of 16 August, turnaround for a barrel "appears" to be running around 7-9 calendar days. YMMV as the recall proceeds & more barrels are received for machining. - wig19)

Detail Strip Instructions: Many thanks to Michigun (who proves he really was awake in Expository Writing-101) for creating & blending a very good series of pictures (including one clearly showing all the Kahr lubrication points) into a set of instructions for detail stripping the upper. If Mrs. Michigun can do it, you can too, so get out those Dremels, felt pads, etc., and finish up the polish job you put off. ;) Relevant thread here.

Need date of manufacture, please.Got it posted, which is all I do. You could call Kahr; bracketing in the list would indicate late '06 to early '07 perhaps.

Unknown as to date of your gun. You could contact Dottie at Kahr and I'll be happy to revise if you get the born-on date.

moreammoplz: Noting the bass-ackwards dates your SN gets placed between, you might want to give Dottie at Kahr a call & inquire as to production date.

Hi guys, I just bought an early black k9 and the good folks at customer service filled me in on it's production date:

model: k9090 (Matte Black all metal k9)
s/n: AC037x
"That pistol was manufactured on April 24, 1995"

Hope that helps the project, I think that makes it one of the earliest in the project.

Great thread.....

Timing is everything. I was just curious about my own K9 that I've edc'd for close to 15 years and decided to try to run down the production date. My strong Google Fu landed me here. After a quick call to Kahr, I offer the following......

ACO31x - K9 (bright nickel) - April 18, 1995


Sorry browntown...... :wavey:

My bad!!! This needs to be corrected. My K40 dates to 1996, not 2006. Sorry for the brain fart!

I picked up a used k9 AL01XX the box has KL9091 date 6/96.

Question on the right hand side of the slide it has Lady K in cursive, similar to the elite writing. If its not factory I may just have to get the removed ...

speedmind, you could give a call to the factory to ask them of the cursive markings. I'd leave it if original; besides, ya never know...

Is there a reason for not putting that last numbers of the S#?
So I have been trying to figure out when my K9 was made... Does any one know how to decipher it?Most people prefer not to have their full SN all over the internet. Except in the case of long-run (but few built) custom guns, the last 2 digits have little bearing as to get the idea of manufacture date. Unfortunately, traditional "sequential" thought also often has little bearing to Kahr Arms, but sometimes you can get close.

If you don't have the original case-collection envelope with the "born-on" date of firing at the factory you can use the table to get a pretty good idea of how old the gun is. (Your K9 is in there now.) You will see that things aren't always sequential. Refer back to my caveat about Kahr above.

The other reason people don't usually like their full SN out on the internet is:

"Good evening, Podunk PD."
"Hi, my truck was broken into and I had a handgun stolen."
"Can you provide the serial number so that we can put out an alert for it and get it into the stolen guns database?"
"Sure; it's a Kahr K9, serial number ZY1234; I did see a guy around the vehicle earlier that looks like that dsmithurst fellow they were showing pictures of on America's Most Wanted..."
