both of the closed ends goes towards the barrel lug, I have a hard time thinking that could be ur issue,but for sure get them on right and retest.
Probably just more rounds down range is allthis gun really needs. they really do smoothout as time goes by. I like you am not sure that spring thing should be your issue but heh, if it ain't broke don't fix it. Nice report... I think one reason they want the open part of the recoil springs to be facing forward is that there is no chance of that spring ever coming out of the front of that slide hole, and also if it is on backward, it has a good chance of climbing over that recoil rod washer or what ever one wants to callit..jfwandrn said:I changed the springs so that both closed ends were toward the barrell lug, cleaned and oiled it and headed for the range. I fired 100 rounds of MagTech through it today and didn't have a single failure. I don't believe just changing the spring around would have made the difference. It doesn't make sense because the spring has the same tension no matter which way it's facing. Anyway, I don't like coincidences, so I'm not going to be comfortable with it until I get another couple hundred rounds through it without a failure.
Light strikes normally is caused by two things. One being a dirty,clogged up striker channel and the other a bad out of spec trigger bar. My bet whenyou get it back they will have replace the trigger bar...claybreaker08 said:Just sent my P380 back for the same issue, plus numerous light strikes after 250 rounds. We'll see what they do there at Kahr Arms..... :-\
take your magazine apart and do some of this TLC stuff. get some 600+ grit sand paper and take that magazne spring and just rub in on both sides back and forth on that sand paper. be surprised how nice and smooth it will get and then take that follower and do the same thng to it, smooth up a all sides of the follower, , then clean the magazine inner body and just rub the springs and inner body with a silicone cloth, no oil please and reinstall.; It helps alot and you now know that the magazine is also put back togeether correctly. I have seen and heard of mag springs being put in backwards.jfwandrn said:Here's a further followup on this issue. I put another 100 rounds through the gun last week, and only had one failure to load. Other than that, the gun ran perfectly. Since I've gotten the gun back from Kahr, I've put two hundred rounds down range with only the one failure to load. (The round didn't come up from the mag). I'm of the opinion this weapon is about 95% trustworthy. If I can get another 100 rounds through it without a problem, I'll call it 100%.
