Too bad I kinda liked the gun.
I understand you might not like the look but there is nothing wrong with the gun.
What they told you is that the part involved was not critical to function and was mostly cosmetic...which is true of most polymer frames guns, their slides usually just ride on the four tabs (makes for less stress on the frame and longer life)...and that the gun would function without the missing piece. You were able to confirm that when you shot it yourself before cleaning it.
I can understand that you might be upset with yourself for not checking the condition of the gun carefully before trading for it and that this might affect it's future sale...I'm assuming that you'll disclose the missing/broken piece to any potential purchaser...but that fact really wasn't Kahr's choice/decision/fault
I'm pretty sure that if you had offered to, they would have sold you a new frame.
Well, if you work there can't they cut you some slack and let you bring the gun back if you want? I know it must suck to have a gun that, although functional, is not in the condition you expected it to be in. It also sucks that not every company offers a lifetime warranty. I usually don't buy from those people. I'd buy a new frame, or try to trade it back in for another gun.
Unless I'm mistaken, he doesn't own the gun. I believe he was saying that he took the gun in as a trade while working at the shop and than took the gun out to shoot it...while it still belonged to the shop.
That's why he says, that he won't take anymore Kahrs in trade at the shop
Light bulb time!
You can break almost anything and since you have no idea how it happened its a bit strong to call it crap. You as a professional ought to have done some due diligence before you purchased it. You bought a gun with out at least field stripping it and eyeballing things?
No offesne but it sounds like you are just angry someone wont clean up your mess when they are neither obligated too nor in their informed opinion does it even need to be done.
Do you plan to disclose the issue to potential buyers?
You could just learn to look them over first. I'm sure those that would trade in a kahr will just do business elsewhere.
Few people know it, and I didn't until recently, but Kahrs have MORE steel in their rails (you just can't see it due to the design) than Glock receivers:
From this post I'm learning that when I do go to look at one I will dissamble it and look for anything broken.
Especially for the pricepoint.
I've been debating between the P9 and PF9. But to buy a used gun also has its setbacks.
This will be my first Kahr product and hopefully I have a good experience with them.
