My P380 just came back from Kahr yesterday. I had hard contact with the slide stop protusion hitting the round nose - was sent another slide stop but it didn't fit the flush to the gun. Also had a small metal tag hanging down where the chamber meets the rifling.

Anyway it came back with all that solved- replaced slide stop and spring, polished off metal tag.

Now something that wasn't happening before I sent it out.
Dry fire the gun with chamber empty and rounds in the mag.
The top round in the magazine gets kicked at least half way out of the mag by only dry firing.

Any ideas?
Doesn't do this with my PM9.

Kahr said they are sending Fed Ex to pick it back up.

my question to you: have u fire the gun, I bet you will have no issues and I do think you might be worrying about something that is not worth worrying about. Karh magazines are known for not holding that top round in place like most other semi magazines do. It is there by design as they are aware of this.

take the gun out and shoot it 50 rounds and see how it functions. My bet is that it willnot be an issue what so ever. Not sure I would want to dry fire my weapon with live rounds in the magazine anyways, just a place for an accident looking to happen. I realy you are probably tryingtos imulate the weight factor but I just would not recommend doing that. YMMV

Thanks for the reply. Had put about 30 rounds through the gun before slide stop fix.

No I usually do not dry fire a gun with a rounds in the mag - you are correct that it can lead to a slip of concentration. The fact that dry firing is pushing the top round so far out of the mag that it is hard to remove the magazine is something that Kahr tech support said should not happen - thus they paid to have it sent back. They said it could have something to do with mag release of something else.

I checked my P380 out today with no snap caps but a loaded magazine and dry firing. My top round moved about 1/8" forward in the magazine. I feel mine is OK as I can still drop the loaded magazine with ease.
