My PM40 is reliable and trustworthy, except for every few hundred rounds,

I will experience a fail to feed the next round, which always means the same thing,

the magazine follower has broken. This has happened 4 times. Has anyone ran into

this problem? Is my only magazine defective, like maybe an out of spec mag causing

this? So in reality, my PM40 is not reliable. Right now my CCW is down and that is a

problem! HELP!!!

From what I've read, the feed ramp is too long and impacting the follower.
The fix is taking some of it off, I couldn't tell you how much, I've never layer my hands on one.

Got it back with a letter saying they reworked the feed ramp.
Along with a new follower.
For some reason or another the recoil has increased to the point of being brutal.
It has sent well over 3000 rounds down range.
Does anyone know if something could cause increase in recoil?

It has 2. You can only replace the external 1 unless you replace the 2 piece guide rod and 2nd captive spring.
Looks like Kahr would have said or done something while they had it.

Check the Wolff site, they would have what you need to replace both.......and would be high quality and long lasting......
