Well I just got back from the range with my new P380. The gun performed fantastically for the first 75 rounds. Then I got 3 light strikes in a row. Each time I heard the click, I pulled the round out to see the dimple left by the striker, but the round did not go off. Has anyone experienced this with their P380? The gun was pretty dirty after 75 rounds, but would that effect 3 rounds in a row? After those 3 rounds I shot another 75 and the gun performed flawlessly again. I know the gun has a 250 round break in, but I didn't think light strikes would be an issue. My gun is a very late model, high on the production numbers...... Please chime in!

iT SHOULD NOT EFFECT RELIABILITY, but that being said, something caused it. How about spraycleaning that striker channel real good,using that little clean out hole in the bottom of the slide. Insert spray nozzle and spray away. They give it another round of the same ammo that caused the light strikes. the fact that it performed flawlessly for another 75 rounds is confusing. I want to say bad ammo but 3 in a row, hard to buy that logic to..

Thanks I'll give that a try. I was using Remington UMC 90gr FMJ for the first hundred rounds. Then I switched to Winchester FMJ for the last 50.

I had similar problems and could not figure it out. I sent the pistol to Kahr and had it back two weeks later. It is now 100% percent reliable. The work order indicated that the slide was replaced.
