MK9 Slide Cracks

I seem to remember another MK9 thread, where the author described a crack in his slide casting in the web between the barrel hole and recoil spring hole. After many years of excellent service, this same crack just showed up in my slide. I am WAY out of warranty. Will Kahr replace the slide? Do you think it's safe to shoot in this condition? Advice?

Kahr has said, and demonstrated at a gun show for a fellow GT member here, that they can grind or cut that part off and the gun still functions 100%.

The crack is cosmetic, but Kahr has honored the warranty repair for others, even when the gun is a few years old.

You have to call Kahr Monday morning and ask. (Number is on their website)

I started a thread several weeks back about the same thing. It was under warranty, so they fixed it. They did not want to pay shipping to return the gun so I brought it to the dealer and they sent it back to Kahr and I did not have to pay for shipping. They did a great job of fixing it. If you bought it from a dealer, take it back to them to see if they can pressure Kahr to make it right. I have also heard that the crack is cosmetic, but that still doesn't make it acceptable. The crack would seriously lower resale value. This seems to me a manufacturer defect and they should make it right. If they don't there is always the BBB.

Out of warranty and they charged you nothing right?

I'm actually thinking about buying a PM9, new from the dealer tonight.

Ian said that if I was the original owner, there was a lifetime warranty. I have had this pistol so long I can't even remember if I bought it new. What a shooter. If I am careful, I can hold a 6" group at 25 yards. A little heavy to carry without a proper holster, but very comfortable to shoot. I traded into this from a PM40, that never would cycle reliably. My only problem is that my wife likes the MK9 so much that she has pretty much claimed it as her own.
