The side plate screw in the P380 does NOT take a conventional torx screwdriver I am told by Kahr but a Torx Plus and the size is "5IP". It is not a popular screw/screwdriver. Appears the same tool would work the slide lock spring as well.

This is not a screw (slide plate screw) that you should screw around with unless you absolutely have to. Typically, any problems should be addressed by the factory. Anyway, here's what it looks like:

OK guys here is how to find this tool and cheap in price to.

#1. wihatools.com

then look at their menu and find TORX PLUS TOOS hit on it, it should pop up next Torx 370 Plus series, and it should show the 5IP tool first up. order # 37040. cost $3.40 plus postage. this is a must toll to have around..

this tool will remove that small screw on the kahrk P380 sideplate and also remove the slide spirng for replaement if needed..


this would make a nice sticky for future kahr owners MODERATORS..

Is this the same screw and tool that would fit the PM-9. I notice my side cover doesn't fit as tight as I thought it did.

Thanks

First post here. Is this still valid? I see the post is from 2009 and I wonder if Kahr is still using the 5IP torx screw or if they are now using a standard T5 torx screw. Does anyone know or does it really matter with such a small screw? Thanks

Guys, please check with Lowes and Home Depot. Mine is the Husky Brand I bought at Home Depot and came with four Torx bits in a nice handle case. I remember paying about $5.00. You can get on line to check the torx bit size availability.
