    Haven't shot it yet. It's a PM9. Tomorrow ...

    I did break it down and check it over. The slide stop required a tap with a plastic mallet coming out. No damage.

    Welcome to KF...you'll appreciate / enjoy the smooth DAO trigger & low recoil especially in rapid fire mode. I used a slim plastic ball point pen barrel to push out the slide stop as another option.

    Welcome to the forum. The breakdown pin will come out easier over time, also as you develop a callous in your fingertip

    150 rounds. Trigger is nice; light recoil. The slide stop engaged on a non-empty magazine twice, otherwise no issues. This happened during the first 75 rounds; flawless afterwards. I’ll put another three boxes through it in a few days, and that should break it in.

    It’s getting easier.

    About the biggest understatement someone could make in describing a Kahr trigger

    Small gun. Your grip could be bringing you into contact with the slide stop.

    BTW, cycling the slide at home on an empty gun with the mag removed will help you to break the gun in. A lot of us do this a few hundred times on a new gun. And that's added to the 200 times that Kahr does it at the factory before they send it out. Helps to remove microscopic burrs and smooth things out. If after a couple of hundred rounds downrange you find that you have a good runner, a Kahr can be as dependable as anything out there. PM9 is an excellent choice. Enjoy!
