    Ha! I've had several parts that have flown to no telling where.

    Ok, people, I'm heading to the range tomorrow, even if it is a weekend. I'm going to abuse this magazine just to see if I can get it to fail to lock up, or drop out using tricks the RSO's probably wouldn't want to see. I'm thinking it will stay in place, but you never know, right. Stay tuned.

    Back from testing the SmokemPlate magazine today. 50 rounds of PMC Bronze FMJ (9A) and 50 rounds of PMC Bronze HP (9B). This danged Kahr PM9193 just refuses to have any failures! And no problems with the custom magazine floor plate (base plate?). I remain impressed. No, not with this magazine test, but with the accuracy of this tiny gun. As for the magazine, it locked up solidly every time, and no feed issues. I threw some Federal Tactical HST downrange as well, but only 7 rounds just to cycle my carry ammo. Love that stuff.

    In summary, this custom magazine is pretty nice, but not a deal breaker from owning a PM9 or any variant. My CM9 was every bit as reliable. I may contact some aftermarket folks, like Pearce, to see if they might be interested in producing a base plate for the Kahr. They could even allow a bit more 'tolerance' just for manufacturing variances and it will still look 100% better than what the Kahr geniuses have offered.

    I took my other "failure free" gun (XDS-45) to the range today only to be subjected to 6 failures in 75 rounds. Crap! Each problem the exact same with failure to feed. PMC Bronze 230gr FMJ. I was upset at myself for not bringing some HST to the range, but it was a last minute decision to take the 45.

    All in all a good day and much better than my morning of pushing a mower in this incredible east coast heat wave.

    I'm Sorry I'm late to the party. Looks good. As an alternative to the DB's, you might want to consider the Pearce magazine extensions. I take those and shave about half the extension away, and they look and feel good.

    With the scarcity of DB9 magazines, you're probably right. There's bound to be other baseplates out there as well. I shot the 9193 again today and once again, zero issues. Magazine is fine. Gun remains at 100% and eerily accurate. It's not fair to other manufacturers!
