Traded into a new one this weekend. I've owned a P9 Covert before (that's the P9's 3.5" upper end on the PM9's 6-shot short polymer frame) but traded it away because I found that the mag dumped during left-handed pocket carry.
That was stupid - I should have just gotten a better holster.
Anyhow, I've been wanting a 9mm that's more like my Ruger LCP in size and reliability, and the Kahr just happened to turn up on sale (new) at the right place and the right time . . . .
In the first 200 rounds, it had one instance of the slide not locking back when the 6-round mag was empty (second mag). It had two nose-dive FTFs with a used 8-rnd mag that I picked up - both after the first round fired (this mag appears only touchily reliable with 8-rounds - I'm carrying it with just 6). It had one instance of the slide locking open in the middle of a 6-round magazine of 147-gr Win PDX-1 rounds. Nothing after those.
So, here are some comparison pix and some chrono data. I have to say that I was not all that impressed with the velocities it delivered compared to other 3" guns that I've owned, though, considering it's the size of the Rohrbaugh, it's neat that it can take +P and +P+ ammo:
ABQ City range, 5950'>sea level, 67°F, c. 35% humidity:
Fed 115-gr FMJ bulk pack: M 1015/ES 28.55/SD 10.48
WWB 115-gr FMJ bulk pack: M 1069/ES 56.74/SD 27.76 decent accuracy
Rem old school 115-gr JHP: M 1057/ES 24.80/SD 10.77 easy shooting, grouped around POA
Fed 115-gr 9BP JHP: M 1063/ES 43.29/SD 17.66 - surprisingly, not especially accurate
Speer Gold Dot 147-gr: M 922.2/ES 19.73/SD 8.60 was accurate, high and right of POA,
Win PDX-1 147-gr: M 954.3/ES 39.86/SD 14.76 not esp. accurate, around POA, slide locked open in the middle of a 6-rnd mag early in testing and the round wasn't accurate enough to warrant re-testing after the 200-round break-in period.
Win PDX-1 124-gr +P: M 1137/ES 16.90/SD 6.85 not accurate, wide group R of POA
Speer short barrel 124-gr +P Gold Dot: M 1107/ES 30.19/SD 13.30
small group just under POA at 10yds
Win RA9TA 127-gr +P+: M 1180/ES 77.50/SD 30.88 tight group at POA
I'm carrying the RA9TA - good velocity, proven bullet, good group at POA. Somewhat stouter recoil than average, but still not as bad as the Win PDX-1 147-grainers. It carries remarkably well in a Remora clipless IWB/pocket holster and in the Pistol Wear Trump Card Subcompact holster belt.
Thought some of these comparison pix might be of interest:
