Just picked up my New P380 yesterday and hope to shoot it soon. I have 5 or 6 semi-autos (LCP, PPK, Sig P229, 1911 etc.) but this slide spring is the hardest to cock I have ever seen. Even with gloves on it likes about 3/8" being back far enough for the slide catch. Is this normal?

Thought it might be used (but no "U") even thought I bought it as new (came with 3-mags 2-6 & 1-7). Tried to call Kahr but no answer.

Any suggestions appreciated

Welcome Larry. The .380 is a sweet little firearm, and will be a bit "stiff" when new.

Clean it, lube it, cycle it approximately 200 times, clean, lube, cycle again, clean and then a final lube... :eagerness:

Welcome larry, Nice to have you involved by posting.

I racked CM9 a couple hundred times while watching TV then left the slide pulled back and locked with slide stop. It helped.

Oh my gosh. I can't take that responsibility on. Some are just much too nutty. <grin>

The "nutty" part or the "responsibility" part?

Oh GOOD! Nice to know I'm just one of the other nuts. But then your appraisal is coming from one of the nuttier ones. Of course I mean this in a good way.
