Questions-comments on Kahr CW9
Hi folks! I just picked up a Kahr CW9 for yet another CCW gun. Nice gun, well made it appears. I did find one thing that I don't understand on their website in Q & A:
Q. My firearm fails to chamber the first round when I pull back the slide and release it. What is wrong?
A. It is likely you are either failing to pull the slide fully back or you are riding the slide as you release it. We recommend that you lock back the slide, insert the clip, and release the slide with the slide stop. This will require that you carry a load in the chamber for self defense purposes. However, the passive safety system will prevent the pistol from firing unless the trigger is pulled, even if the gun is dropped. If you would prefer not to carry a round in the chamber, you may remove a round from the magazine. This alters the angle of the bullet and will allow it to chamber even if you ride the slide.
What are they talking about when they say remove a round from the mag? If there's only 6 in the mag it's supposed to feed better?
Overall, it appears to be a pretty nice gun. Bad think is up here in Minnesota, I won't be back to the range until spring unless we see a thaw.
Any Kahr comments would be appreciated!
