I was lately having failure to lock open on the last round in my P380. for over 1250 round s t was perfect then all of a sudden all 3 of my 10% more power ones that wolffs shows for the kel tel 380's). they worked fair but not perfect. I installed new followers to no luck new slide stop to no luck.

today I got in a new mag release that I ordered from kahr to see if that could possably be the issue. Walla!!! works perfect, all 3 magazines lock open on the last round. I can only say that the original release never gave one hint of giving any issues. It never released a magazine accidently but this new mag release does lock the magazine in better. I can tell by the feel.

What alerted me to maybe this being the issues was with the old release in the gun, if I pushed up on the bottom of the magaazine, it would lock open on the last round as it should. This told me that maybe, just maybe something has changed/worn in the mag release area.

My assumption was right. So keep this in mind if you have any issues such as I was having./

Good luck. I just love this P380 when it acts like it is supposed to. Evidently the mag release was letting the magazine have more play in it than was designed for the new one does lock in much tighter, hopefully it will stay that way. I do not slam my magazines either...

Thanks for the heads up Jocko. I'm probably about half way to that round count so I'll keep an eye out.

Have you tried a Diamondback yet? I really like my P380, but I'm also thinking that if CT ever comes out with a laser guard for the Diamondback, I might consider selling the Kahr.

My initial thoughts and review of my Diamondback.

Probably bought my last 380 with my Kahr, now hav ethe lcp and the P380, actually two to many. I never carry either as my PM9 just fits in the same place with ease. After owning the kt's I will shy away form the DB line.

My P380 now works like a charm, the most accurate 380 I have ever owned or shot to...
