Trigger Not Resetting

Just had to send my PM9 in for maintenance...

The gun has about 800 rounds thru it over the last 4 months and has ran fine the whole time... Took her out the other day and it shot the 1st round just fine but then the trigger failed to reset. I cycled the slide and it would reset about every tenth time or so... I did find that if I push the trigger forward, it will reset and let me shoot again... Who wants to do THAT every time?

Called Kahr and got a Return Number. Dealer sent it back to them with no charge... Now I just have to wait for the outcome...

Anyone else have this problem? I tried a search but came up empty...

Anyways, thanks for reading... Rant off...

I had the same problem among others (FTF,FTE etc.) on a BNIB PM9 a few yrs. ago. Took the new gun out of the box disassembled, cleaned and lubed. Then couldn't fire one full mag w/o malfunction. Trigger failed to reset several times. To say I was pissed is an understatement. I am LEO firearms Instructor and armorer and own several brands of handguns and this never happened to me on a NIB gun. Called Kahr up and they sent me a call tag for UPS to pick up. Gun was back to me in 2 weeks w/ repair order and letter. Apparently, I got a lemon and they sent me a whole new gun w/ different serial# and free set of nite sights. The repair order said "Slide machined out of spec. and frame cracked and sometype of spring broke". The good news is that I now have this gun as an every day carry for over 4yrs. now and lots of rounds downrange w/o any type of malfunction. I forget the name of the spring, but if you disassemble gun and look down mag well, right inside of the side plate you will see a flat (not coil) type spring. This spring resets the trigger, so either yours broke or somehow became dislodged.

Had a co-worker whose P9 trigger also wouldn't reset. Maybe 2000 rounds through his gun(???). It also ended up being the spring that resets the trigger.
Although many good citizens own and carry guns, keeping communities safe still fall on those who carry badges.

In a gun fight, even if you do everything right, you can still get killed.
