I would not and I say this again, I WOULD NOT even advise messing with taking the trigger out. U are asking for big time issues if you do. besides that pin that you visably see that only comes out one way, that pin is also held by another pin, if u look at the bottom of the trigger area in the polymer, you willsee what looks like a nail. That is a keeper for that trigger pin to never move. Just leave the trigger system totally alone.. do what ever to the slide if it floast ur boat...Gideon said:You may want to consider sending the slide off for refinishing in black. If it's only the slide you can send it cheaply through US Post Office. If you call a number of different shops you might find someone who'll do it cheaper since you're sending only the slide and a small one at that (plus the slide release pin).
Now if you want the trigger to match then you're talking full disassembly and some guys won't refinish just parts but again, you can talk to them.
A place called Fusion does DLC finishes so it's going to be about as good as factory.
Doing this you'll have a black one years before they become available. I wouldn't expect to see a black one out and readily available for two years.
let's face it you can't hardly get a P380 or K9 series weapon!
Or you can wait until early 2010, get a P380 with night sights and then send off the slide for DLC coating.
sometimes these refinishers and the type of finish they put on a gun can actually have negative effects on the over all operation of the gun. Some of these very durable finishs are thicker than normal blueing and tolerances do change and some times guns don't work as good was whenyou sent it in. Again theyw illneed break in time and also good companies who do this refinishing know how to properly prep a gun to. Stick with the good refinish companies andone should be OK.CaseyP said:it's funny that you both mention para. I am at work, and just after I posted my question, my friend came in to shoot the bull...
I started telling him about my plans to re-finish the p380, and he instantly mentions his para 45, and how he doesn't like the finish on it.
Then I check back here, and it's the same thing
He did say to check the warranty from Kahr, first, before re-finishing the slide.
