Is this normal ??

Hey Guys,

I own several Glocks, this Kahr PM9 is my first.
First thing I noticed was some powder residue like mark
on the 9x19 marking of the barrel.

I asked the dealer what it was, he said powder residue.
(Fired 2x for shell casings) before I received it.

He said some solvent would clean it right up.
Well, I just attempted to remove the marking with solvent, no luck.
The rest of the barrel is fine and clean.

Is this normal? All the Kahr's I've seen look clean and sharp.
Any recommendations?

Thanks in advance!

Mine didn't come that way new and with 1,500 or so rounds through it, it doesn't look that way now. Not sure what caused that, but it isn't normal from what I've seen.

Damn, I'm pretty bummed. This dealer had to order this PM9 for me.

Well I'm not keeping it, especially for what I paid for it (NYC Here!)
Looks like I will be back there tomorrow. I used solvent and rubbed for a good 20 minutes, no improvements.

Very dissapointed.

You might post the pic over on kahrtalk.com as well. It's a smaller, less active forum, but focused on Kahrs.

Contact Kahr - they will probably exchange the barrel for a new one.

Also, it looks like something that should clean up with some metal polish, such as simichrome.

Went back to the dealer earlier.
He grabbed some Flitz and a qtip....15 seconds later it was clean as a whistle.

So all is well. Gotta go for inspection tomorrow, then to the range this weekend. I'll give you guys a range report


Thanks for the help guys.
