    Default New Kahr CW380

    Just got my new Kahr CW380 in this week. I already have a CM9 and love it. Anyone have any suggestion on what to do to it from the start? Polishing ? Upgrades?

    I've had the same pistol for about a year. There are some really good stickys in the Kahr forum about initial cleaning and lube points as well as break in procedure. I used these and have had trouble free weapon. No polishing or mods needed. It's been a great pocket pistol.

    Start reloading a bunch of ammo for it to keep practicing and to break it in well. Mine seems to do pretty nicely w/ 100gr Xtreme RNFP's over Universal.

    Thanks for the advise. I had it out today at The Sportsmans Shop. 150 flawless rounds through it. I did polish up the feed ramp before taking it out, but it really didnt need it. Very accurate at 7 yards. I will be replacing the front sight. The stock one is a little hard to see in low light.

    Good pistol with a great trigger and I agree the front sight sucks. The only over all upgrade you may want to consider is getting the forged slide stop VS the cast one it comes with. This has been really the only failure point of this pistol other then that it's golden.
