P380 Lite Primer Strikes

I have been experiencing light primer strikes with my P380 when using standard range ammo. I don't experience this with Cor-Bon or Speer Gold Dot ammo.

Could this be attributed to a firing pin problem?

Has anyone else experienced this?

To, but I've only got 300-400 rounds through my P380.

Follow the guide in the sticky to detail strip the slide. I bet you will find a bunch of junk in the striker channel. I had the same problem with my CW9. The problem went away after the detail strip.

I had similar issues as well. Mine was a bad trigger bar-I would talk to Ian at Kahr and have them fix it.

you will be voiding your warranty if you detail strip the slide. Send it back to Kahr.

I certainly hope that is not true. I have detail cleaned my P9 slide twice now with 850 rounds through it.
My goal in life is to be the great person my dog thinks I am.
